I was told that you look at the Calories lost...when i was at the gym with my friend she said she looks at the amount of calories that she loses..is this true? i did about 40 mins at the gym last night and did 170 calories wise!

Someone once told me that it is not accurate, so I don't bother.

It's not always accurate as different shapes and sizes can burn more calories or less and it depends on your metabolism as well

I look at my sweat and check the scale lol....if I'm dripping in sweat and the numbers on the scale go down every week I'm a happy camper...if not then I push myself until my body says enough lol...well at least when I work out. I'm still pregnant, hopefully by november I can go full beast mode :)

NO!! Looking at how hard I worked compared to the small amout of calories it said I burned makes me discouraged and want to quit.
