    exercise helps with emotional issues too. If you exercise you will be less likely to be morose and need carbs to feel better.

    I've only really been a gym rat once in my life. I was in my thirties and handling a very difficult appeal, made thousands of times worse by the meddling of every supervising attorney on earth, or so it felt. Every morning (yup, 7 days a week) I did 90 minutes in the gym for almost 18 months...and never lost a pound or an inch. Didn't change a damned thing about my appearance.

    It did, however, help me greatly in managing my rage. I wanted to murder almost every supervising attorney involved in this debacle. I had great, intricate fantasies about doing each of them in in especially fitting ways -- they really were driving me absolutely batshit. With the exercise I was able to hang on to my temper and my job, and eventually file a winning brief.

    I never had to deal with that much sustained rage again, but I wouldn't hesitate to cope in the same way. Maybe exercise isn't all it should be for my physical well-being but it sure did the trick emotionally.

    I'm a week into my exercise/diet routine and it's made a world of difference. Feel better, eat less, more energy, no afternoon naps, sleep better at night, better appetite when I do eat, more self-confidence, etc etc. It's easy. Eat only at meals 3 x/day, no snacking whatsoever, no junk food or sodas, and ride my bike for at least 1/2 hour. I've already lost 5 lbs. And I'm saving money not eating out (well- that's free sometimes :D) and not buy junk foods.

    Then you were either:

    -Too thin and actually gaining muscle
    -Eating more than you were burning
    -Exercising improperly

    It wasn't the Exercises' fault you weren't losing.
