Being new to exercise, although I am 38, I have a few questions. I
have been exercising faithfully for two months -- that's great. I
have been doing at least 25 min at 125 or above -- trying to stay
closer to 140 - 150.
I gained about 5 pounds at first. I am back down to where I started.
I expected more.
I have a shin splint in my right leg that is keeping me from running
much. I walk up hills a lot to get the heart rate in the right range.
Shouldn't this exercise be having more of an impact on my weight? I
haven't exactly been dieting, but I did cut out caffeine for the past
three months, and I haven't had fries in ages.
I have still have faith, and I will continue to exercise.
I just wish I saw more results.
