So I'm coming up to 8 weeks with the PT (with a week off in the middle, so 7 weeks of training) and I've lost 3kg and about 2 inches from my waist - pretty pleased with this considering I haven't really been all that strict diet wise. I like that I'm still seeing the results despite this. Shirts that didn't fit in September now do up just nicely, I have something resembling biceps appearing and my legs look nice in skinny jeans. Once Christmas and New Year are done, I'll try to be more disciplined with my diet and see where I go from there. Like @Beginner this has done wonders for my state of mind. I'm feeling loads stronger and I'm starting to miss not going to the gym on my rest days which I guess means I'm enjoying it. It's given me something to focus on and look forward to. After the first 4 weeks with the PT I signed up for another 16 weeks so I'll be with him until mid-March. I can already see myself doing all the stuff we're doing by myself and the gym itself isn't nearly as intimidating as I initially thought it was.
