Im 42 yrs old, single, no kids. I have been doing aerobics for more than 10 yrs. For work reasons I wish I can work out or hit the gym during the week (I cant cause I leave work very late at nite and I get up very early in the morning to come to work) but I only work out Satrudays and Sundays. Those 2 ays ar the days I try to do my best. I try to eat healthy, I hardly eat junk food or chips (like pizza, hot dogs or even hamburgers), I indulge once in a whiole sweets but I do not over eat those things. I eat fruits, and vegetables and salads everyday, I eat chicken fish, meat and at work I ont eat at coffee time mid afternoon or mid morning.
The thing is that I been noticing that ladies who are a bit younger than me (like 3 yrs) and even have kids, and they have told me they have start to eat better or dieting or even starting to work out had lost weight in a shorter amount of time and I can really tell cause they do have lost weight.
On the contrary me that I have been working out longer thtn those ladie, sometimes I even run (nut Im not a runner), I do not have kids, I feel I havent improved anything. I still have my love handles, my flabby belly and I see my body the same size as always. I know that is the eye of the beholder that could tell me I am thinner than before not myself, bu tisee myself the same as always.
At work there is a lady who use to tell me a while back, you ahve lost weight or something I told her I dont know I see myself the same. Then this lady started to run each morning before coming to work for more than 5 months now. SHe has 2 kids and now she looks way more slimmer than I am, her love handles dissapear and she sure had lost weight you can easily tell. Im sure she now weights much less than me. She is 40 yrs old.
The only thing she does for work out is running and she has a stationary bike at her home, but she works out during the weekdays before coming to work cause she do has time. My work out are weekends, 2 hrs each Satruday and 2 hrs Sunday.
For lunch this sometimes I see this lady eating 2 carbs at once, lets say rice and spaguetti or even friend pork and spaguetti..
I dont know who come this lady in like 5 or 6 months she started to exercise I mean running, she lost rapidly weight and she has a much better figure than myself and me that I been working out longer than her , I dont eat junk food I dont see myself in the same position and I dont have kids. I have flabby parts.
This same situation happens with a sister of mine she use to be overweight, she starte to exercise in the week (cause she does not work), she no longer eat junk food, she is 30 yrs old and quickly she lost weigth and also u can tell.
Sometimes I gt frustrated myself at this that other ladies start to work out in a shorter amount of time they loose weight and it is noticeable and me I had been working out longer thatn them I my results are not the same.
