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.


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.
