I started going to the gym about 2½ months ago. Since then I haven't dropped any weight whatsoever. I go at least 4 times per week.
I did, however, cut my body fat percentage from 21 to 7. You might be surprised what is going on "under the hood". Do you feel that you're making progress at the gym? Are you able to handle heavier weights? Are you stronger, faster, leaner?
I am a total scale addict. I want to see weight loss. However, it's just not happening - so I am happy to see the change in the other numbers. It makes me see that there are definitely things happening, even when it doesn't feel like it.
Trust me, I know your frustration. I've been there for months. It wasn't until recently I found out about my body fat.

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!
