Questions Post!  
Ok, I have a couple of questions.

1. I finally got my butt into the gym about 4 weeks ago! Yay me! But I haven't been seeing any results. I'm not sure what's going on with my body. I always make sure I eat more than 1,100 calories(I average about 1350 calories a day). On Mondays and Wednesday, I do an hour of carido and Fridays, it's Jillian Michael's 30 days shred and yoga. Is it normal to not see any difference after 4 weeks or is there more that I need to do? Also, if anyone can tell when they started seeing results, that'll be great.

and

2. Is it ok to do stuff like the 30 day shred only once a week? Will it still help with my weight loss or a waste of time?

do you actually not see any difference, or is it just that your weight hasn't gone down? you could be building muscle instead of losing fat. i don't really know though.

Physically, I doubt you're going to see any difference after only 4 weeks.

I keep track of my weight every day. It made me realize that my weight fluctuates in a natural rhythm. During the course of a week I weigh anywhere from 159-162, so I'm waiting for that range to slowly start dropping, and I actually have an iPhone app to track my daily weight so I can see the trend :) Maybe this is something you want to do? Just keep in mind (as vdoes said), you might not see actual weight loss for even up to 2 months depending on what you started with and what you're doing since you could be building muscle.

1100 calories a day may actually not be enough, depending on your height/weight. You might be kicking your body into "oh crap store everything as fat" mode, so make sure that you're eating ENOUGH, esp keeping up with your protein.
