I have ben lifting weights for about a month now. One thing I'm noticing is that i am TIRED all the time. From what i've heard, people say that is because my body is using more energy to maintain the muscle. Anyway, i'm scared i might be doing something wrong. So far i have lost 5 lbs, i think it came off my boobs...lol!
Anyone have experience with strength training?

Thanks sw33t. i have wondered about low iron. I try to eat as much protein as i can. I was doing a lot of cardio, like A LOT, but was not seeing any results. So, i got in touch with an old friend who is a competitive body builder. He said that i NEED to lift weights if i want to burn more calories. He was right, just 3 weeks after i started lifting i lost 5 lbs. He says there is no such thing as "toning" your muscles. You just build them up & lose the fat on top so you can see them. I have heard that "toning" is not even a way to lift weights. Not sure. I DO lift heavy, but not SO heavy that I'm struggling on my last rep. I notice a difference in my arms, much less flabby. My arms look great. But i still want to lose some fat, & i think not eating enough is what is making me so tired. I was told to eat a power bar.....maybe that will work...thanks guys!!!!
