I'v been on a diet for around 3 months now (since July) and I joined a gym around the same time. Since then, I've been having a lot of salads and in-taking more protein. I'm starting to see progress in my biceps and triceps but that's basically it.
One of the biggest reasons is that everyone in the gym always seem to be 'buddied up', meaning that they're always around their friends and they all surrounded the more advanced and heavier equipment, screaming, dropping the equipment, and leaving assisted weights the 12.5 KG and 15 KG left for me, and I'm ready to go beyond that now. I'm ready to work on my chest now so I can get rid of my 'man boobs', and do some leg exercises to straighten them and just start looking better overall. And seeing such large crowds is really a turn off, especially since the locations aren't large. The best location I've found is a small one that is almost always empty, but as you can imaging, most of the, and I don't know if I should be using this word, essential and effective equipment are not there.
It's really discouraging for me and I haven't been making any progress on my belly area, legs or weight loss overall. Last I weighed myself I was 218 lbs, then another I was 222 point something, and that was about a month ago. I'm terrified of weighing myself now because I think I might of even gained some. What should I do? I'm lost and if I don't get help soon I might fall back since obesity and diabetes run in my family.
