I know this is probably muscle, not fat, but I was wondering if you guys knew when I'll start losing weight instead of gaining it. At the moment I'm doing 25 minutes on the treadmill and 35 on the elliptical machine (besides of crunches series).
Do you have any advice?
A lot of quick weight changes like that are water fluctuations in the body. You really need to take a look at your weight/composition changes over the course of a month and just assure that you are continuing to move in the right direction.
