Default New Start

I've been an on and off member for a few years now. I've gained over 30 pounds in a year. Not only does this create self-confidence issues but now I have to buy a whole new wardrobe. Finally, I've decided to shred this weight gain and save some money. Please feel free to leave any comments.

About me
Age: 20
Height: 5'4
Weight: 140-145 (gained weight)
Goal: 110-115 (original weight)
Gym: M,W,F,Sat,Sun (1000 calories within 1:30 min)
Running: T and Th (1-3 miles)
Food: I REFUSE, REFUSE, REFUSE to give up.
Diet: I'm not giving up food but I am willing to change my eating habits

I've been at this for 2 weeks and I see no weight loss. However, I've seen alot of improvement in my running.

Welcome to the FitDay forums swtkorean.

It sounds like you are determined! Do you log your food? After 2 weeks of running you should have seen even a minimal loss unless you are taking in the same amount of calories you are burning.

Working out 7 days a week for an hour and a half is really hard on your body. Do you plan on taking any days off for muscle recovery?

I kind of use my Tuesdays and Thursdays as a relax run, I should consider a recovery day though. For now though my body is fine. I try to alternate legs, arms and abs.

I have been somewhat keeping track of my food log. I need to get on it and plan ahead. The past year I think I had been eating nearly 3,000-4,000 calories per day. Not good. So I am slowly shrinking it down to a normal 1,500 calorie diet. That's plenty enough of food to fill my stomach. I eat mostly with my eyes and then try to shove it all into my body. So, there are still alot of days when I go over 2,000. I need to hold onto my self-control.
