    I'm trying to do 45-60 minutes in the gym 4 times a week, I do 15-20 minutes on each of the following, the bike, cross trainer and brisk walk on treadmill. Some weeks I substitute the gym for aerobics or zumba if I fancy a change. I also do a bit of resistance weights maybe twice a week. I'm on weight watchers and have been sticking to the daily points etc but last week I lost no weight?? Felt really disheartened after all my hard work, I only use about 10 of my weekly points, am thinking it may be worth using more of my weekly allowance each day for things like a larger portion size for dinner? Any experience with this anyone? X

    You may not be showing a loss on the scales as you are building up muscle tone and strength (muscle weighs more than fat) which has led to you not showing a loss on the scales. If I were you (wish I was doing that much exercise) id stick with it another week or two go as your going and see. You might see a significant loss next week! Think if you've built up muscle and weigh the same you've list a good amount if fat from your body :) hope this puts your mind at ease :) jeep up the good work (sorry for the use of the word fat, evil word) good luck :D

    Don't worry

    I've had a similar experience to you Jem. I go to the gym 5 times a week. I do 15 mins treadmill and 45 mins crosstrainer on Tues & Thurs. Then in Mon, Wed and Fri I do 15 mins treadmill then 40 mins weights and 30 mins crosstrainer to finish. I'm losing inches faster than weight loss at the moment and have gone down a dress size too.

    Don't be disheartened - keep going with the exercise and take a note of your measurements if you haven't already.

    Best of luck
    Tracey
