    I wouldn't either..after reading most of these posts, my gf is doing the same type of thing, she's just a little taller and weighs a little more..she is starting to see results it's been about a month. she was thinking about eating less on the days that she didn't work out but we read somewhere that it will counteract her hard work....keep at it, you will start seeing results

    Women...

    Ladies, ladies, ladies!

    Come on, let's work hard here!

    5-10 lbs is a great place to start.... for a week or 2. Work hard. Are you "just a little bit" sore each time?

    Men are not the same!
    Women need to take advantage of the lower body more to maximize effectiveness.
    We also need to use major muscle group exercises- ones that more many joints at one time!

    Here are the exercises I would do to up your metabolism:

    Weighted walking lunges
    Smith Bar squats
    Decline Leg press (great for the butt!)
    Hamstring curls
    Leg extension (make sure to balance- use hams alot!)
    abs, abs, abs

    Then add;
    Lat pulls, seated cable rows.
    Pec press and pec flies.

    Do not waste your time on:
    calf raises, bicep curls, tricep work.
    These are small muscle groups and will give you much less bang for the buck!.

    Go here, and read about HIIT:
