I joined a gym last month. I paid for 2 personal training session then went on my own. I haven'y been watching my diet much(but I don't eat too bad anyway) and have been going on average 4 days a week.

My routine is 30 minutes of cardio with my heart rate above 125, then do three sets each on 6 machines. 

When I started I was 173. For the first time since I started I decided to weigh myself in the ladies locker room. 162 it says! It it possible that my work is paying off? Or is the scale in the locker room off? :/

Entirely possible. Maximum healthy weight loss is between 2-3 lbs a week. 

Great Job!!

It could be either. Go weigh yourself on the original scale (the one that gave you 173) to be sure.

~10 lbs in a month is definitely possible and very healthy and sustainable.

Yeah you're right:) But at the same time this number got me pumped. I'm afraid to find out if I haven't really lost any :/  I guess that's why they advise you not to weigh yourself untill you see a difference in the mirror.

Just based on hitting the gym 4 days a week for a month? That's possible?

Yep. I've lost 2-3 lbs in a week just from working out 20 mins a day.
