Your gym sounds nice. The less frills & less expensive the better! Keep up the good fight!

It sounds like you get an odd kind of satisfaction from the sweating it out. Honestly, as crazy as it sounds, plenty of people on this forum will tell you that cardio does not slim you down. The diet supposedly does it on its own. I don't know how you test for that. How do you prove a negative? You can compare yourself to others but that is not really useful. I have to do it on my doc's orders but for a different purpose.
