Ive recently bought a elliptical trainer machine (3 weeks ago tomorrow). Ive been using it every day since i bought it for 30 mins a day, according to the on screen display in that half hour im running between 13-17kms in that 30 min session but only burning 150ish calories? Not sure if thats right or not, but im dripping with sweat by the end of it lol.
I chose to go with the elliptical trainer because i have really bad problems with my knees and i have had 5 operations on both of my knees in the last 3-4 years, which has caused me to put on about 10-15 KGS in that time since i couldnt really do much exercise, i always use to be pretty fit and slim before the knee problems, so im looking to get back in shape.
Basically my question is how long would it be before i start seeing any weight loss on the scales? Since i started 3 weeks ago the scales havent changed at all, i still weight exactly what i did 3 weeks ago which is 95KGS. Im not really following any specific diets or anything im just trying to stay away from any bad and fast foods etc. (Probably consuming about 1000-1500 calories per day if that)
I know im not going to lose it quickly but i thought i would have seen some atleast slight changes on the scales in those 3 weeks.
Thanks in advance
EDIT: Just adding.... Could it be my poor eating habits causing me not to drop any weight? I NEVER have breakfast and quite often i dont even get time to have lunch at work so ill eat when i get home from work at about 4pm then again at about 9-10pm... Yep, usually only eat twice a day :\
