Hey guys, I just started working out like a mth ago...and very consistent at it. I do those group classes, as well as weight training with a personal trainer but I found a bit of changes with my body. I'm not sure what's going on so it'll be great if someone could tell me what's going on.
First of all, I always had a bit of a constipation problem and lots of people told me that exercising would definitely help, but it hasn't at all. If it's anything, I find that my situation has worsen.
Secondly, I find myself eating alot more, which I guess is natural since I'm burning off the calories and my body is asking for more. But why do I feel like I'm gaining weight? Like my jeans on the legs feel tighter, my tummy gets really bloated, especially my lower abs...its like huge compared to before. I find it so hard to work on my lower abs because my lower back doesnt stayed flat on the floor...instead my lower back gets arched and I find myself hurting my lower back instead of working on my lower abs
Thirdly, how long does it take to see results? The reason I really joined the gym is because of my flat bum, but I already see abit cellulite on my butt and hamstrings...I'm on 24 years old and a very slim female...5'4.5" and around 100-103 lbs. I'm thinking my weight probably increase since I've started working out.
Am I eating wrong or exercising wrong? What's wrong with my body? Anyway, any insight would be helpful!
