I was using the gym for 1 hour and 24 min. My calorie counter says I burned 900 calories! I am really loving cardio. I wonder what I was doing so wrong before that I thought I hated it so bad!
I weighed myself to join the gym last week and it said 170. Today I should be at my highest for the month because of period bloating where I sometimes gain up to 10 lbs. Today I stepped on the same Scale as I did last week and wax 165.5 its a weighted scale not electronic. So even if the totals are wrong, it still suggests that I lost 4.5 lbs in a week! I won't trust it completely until I've gotten my period and gone a month. Then I will have a more accurate idea of my weight loss.
I did measure today too, too soon since the lasttime but I just wanted to see and I'm down an inch on my tummy. One on my butt. And one on each arm! Can't wait for a month to see my real progress!

Was the 170 on the same scale?  If not, that can make a difference.

Great job on the loss, and for going!  Did you decide to stick with this gym, then?

It is on the same scale as last time. I am not sticking with this gym but the whole money back garuntee thing is only for the sign up fee. since i cant get my money back for the month i paid for, i am going to go every day for a month. I am going to then do the 10$ a month no commitment golds membership. If i like it ill sign up for the family but i dont want to get roped into something again. Darn salesmen.. ugh

That's a bummer, but I agree, make the most of what you're stuck paying for!

Sometimes, I'll have a nice big loss like that, then nothing for a bit, so if that happens, just be prepared!  Hopefully that won't happen, but just a heads up!  =)
