Just have patience with this.. Weight does not go away that fast and remember that even if you weight this, you could still be healthy since its more about eating the right foods(food pyramid now comes handy!).. Oh and Dont try diets, they Dont work.. Try having a balanced diet.. Its not so much on how much you eat because we need a little bit me everything:) and I agree with the keeping track of your calories thing it really works!
Keep it up you are doin fine:)

First of all take small meals in a day rather than 3 heavy meals and it should consist more of salads and soups. Also it is good that you have joined a gym but you should not repeat the same type of exercises everyday. After warm up session, alternate between cardio, abs and other floor exercises in a week and per day concentrate on one particular part of the body. Your physical trainer can help you in this.

Swimming, cycling etc are one of the best exercises for weight loss and you can do it regularly.
I hope it helps. Take care and regards.

hi, have you tried counting calories? how much you put in and how much goes out w/ the exercising? i know what works for me especially in the beginning until i have a general idea of my eating is jotting down how many calories i've eaten throughout the day and how many calories i've burned from exercising. it keeps me on track to make sure i don't eat too much or too little. since you said you've been eating right and exercising, i'm sure the pounds will slowly start to go away. sometimes it just takes time. remember, it all depends on what you put in and what goes out. good luck!
