Can't Change My Body... Help!

Hi everyone. I'd really appreciate some help. I am 26 years old, 5'1" and I fluctuate between 120-125 pounds. I've been trying to slim down, as I realize I have a pretty bad body shape... I'm way bigger than I should be for my height, and I just look really flabby.



I joined a gym about eight months ago, and for 6 months I was working out regularly... an hour 3 days a week (30 mins aerobic, 30 minutes weight lifting) along with doing belly dancing and martial arts. I also got measured once a month to chart my progress.



My progress was... NOTHING. I seemed to go down in body fat percentage, but I didn't lose a single pound, and the only place I lost inches was my bust (great...) About 2 months ago I gave up and quit going. I decided to go back in today to see how far I'd slipped. Barely anything! My heart rate at the beginning and end of my aerobic workout was actually LOWER and I'd only gained one pound.



What do I do to actually change my body??

If you did not lose any weight but did go down in fat percentage, that is a good thing. You may not feel skinnier, but you ARE healthier. Keep in mind that muscle ways more than fat, so weight loss is not the only way to determine how "skinny" you are. If you are still looking for another way, I would try Weight Watchers. A friend of mine tried this (she's 40) and she did lose weight - however, there was a point when her weight loss just STOPPED. Even though she won't lose any more weight, she has learned from Weight Watchers how to eat more healthily, and that's important. So, don't give up yet, but keep in mind that "healthy" is what you want, not "skinnny."
