Good luck bro, however no noticeable decrease in weight after strenuous, consistent training may mean some area in your diet needs to be tightened up a bit. Hope you are food logging!

I really think you need to log your food to see what's going on. I personally have been active and fit most of my life and still I gained weight and it was all due to diet. For the average person, diet is about 75 percent of weight loss, exercise 25 percent. So if you never exercised before and you start you may lose a small amount of weight.

If you log your food for a week, it'll probably become much more clear what's going on.

I cannot afford the foods, so I have spent hours calculating foods that will work and increasing proteins and supplements. I think I am pretty close to the meal,replacements. We will see! Good luck to you both! I will be looking for you!

Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum...
I'm really struggling to lose weight (I've put on almost 3 stone - 38.25lbs - because of medication). I look and feel like sh*t
I've tried doing Insanity, but found it difficult to stick with because I'm doing it by myself (and because I hadn't lost any weight after doing it for 1 month). As I was totally disheartened I did absolutely nothing for 2 months (and put on 2.5lbs). Anyway, decided yesterday enough was enough and went out for a 'run' (I use that term very loosely!). I managed to run for 10min (very, very slowly); walked for 5min then ran for another 5min; then I just walked the rest of the circuit (about 4 miles).
I have tried running before, but always gave it up after a bit because I never got past the whole 'I hate every minute of this' feeling... A girl I work with (who has lost > 5 stone - >70lbs because of running) has told me it's because I never gave myself a goal. She reckons you can work up from nothing to a 5k in approx 6 wks; personally speaking I think she's on drugs if she thinks that...!! However, I've taken her at her word, so last night I signed up for a 10k It's a 'Santa Dash' and it's on on the 8th Dec; so that gives me 10wks to train... I figure if I even manage to run for 5k and walk for 5k I'll be happy. Still not sure if I'm crazy or just plain stoopid only time will tell
Anyway, sorry for such a long post! Any encouragement/tips/anything whatsoever will be gratefully received - Cheers!
