I thought that I f I bought a membership to the gym I would automatically lose weight and look like a million bucks. No one told me I actually had to go....I need a good kick start. Can anyone help?

MAKE yourself go. You might not want to, but just go. Don't even think about it. Pack your gym bag the night before you are going to the gym, leave it in your car or something. Force yourself to go starting off three times a week (taking one day off in between), then it will slowly become an addiction and you will be trianing hard 7 days a week! You can do it !

I go in the morning, it was hard to get used to, but overall I find it to be better. I get up, go workout and get it out of the way for the day. This leaves my evenings free and gets me up and moving for work. Another great motivator is getting a partner.

lol i know how you feel! Try a training partner, there were times i hated going to the gym and would make excuses not to go,especially on leg day.hahaha.It helps to have someone show up at your door and drag your butt to the gym! Set a goal for the summer or spring or whatever, like buying clothes that you would like to wear in your new and improved body ,be confident that youll be able to wear them when the time comes and work your butt off, plus no one likes to waste money!

I think that it's the part where you see the results... may it be your pant size has gone down.... or you actually LIKE what you see in the mirror, just feeling better each day, and noticing the difference between before you started working out, and how you feel NOW.
That's when you will start to enjoy going... it is addicting, craving to get even better results!!

Well it's a good start to join a gym but while "part of success is showing up" the rest is hard work and dedication.
Everybody who trains has a role model/inspiration to work toward and that's great! You should find one too. But this is a looooong term goal. Start by setting small short term goals like feeling better, how clothes fit, look in the mirror also reward your hard work each month by getting a new outfit you wanted when you loose those inches or a able to walk longer or lift 5 - 10 more pounds in the gym on an exercise for examples. Also seek out reading material and/or video for women's training to help you along and for inspiration/motivation like I said above. Also find activities in the gym and out that you can do and enjoy so you'll stick to it.
