10 minute trainer anyone???
Just started 10 minute trainer and man did it kick my butt! I didn't realize what poor shape I am in but I hope this is enough to kick start my weight loss. I've been hibernating all winter and beach season is too close to keep packing on the pounds. Has anyone else done TMT and if so what were your results?

Trying hard with minimal to no results
I drink coffee in the morning, but the rest of the day is either water, tea and maybe skim milk (if I remember). I probably drink on the average 96oz water a day. I don't typically snack since I work and am pretty busy there which is great since it keeps my mind off food. I do cardio for 30 minutes (since the only time I can go is before work) and really don't have time for weights. Usually I alternate elliptical, cybex trainer and treadmill.
It is just so frustrating because I think by now I should have lost more. I know my tracker says 164.5, but I weighed myself this morning and I was back to 168.9. I'm not going to give up, but just looking for any advice. Thanks everyone!!!

Trying hard with minimal to no results
Am I doing something wrong here? I started January 1 with a 1500 cal diet. Basically eating what I wanted but only limiting to 1500 cal daily. No exercise at that point since I am busy, but I recently gave up that excuse and joined the gym. I've gone 3x in the past week so that is some improvement. I switched to South Beach diet last week and did not like the GI side effects so I moved to phase 2 to get more fiber (those of you who have tried this know what I'm talking about). I am avoiding bread and anything white, but still no movement in the scale. Initially I lost, but now its back. Any suggestions?

Why can't I lose weight
Agree with Sntrada. If you eat less than 1200 cal per day you body can go into starvation mode and will not allow for weight loss. Try increasing a litte and also watch the carbs and sodium.
