Good evening to all my wonderful friends!
Thanks so much for all the comments & support from my last posting. As I re read it, it sounded pretty negative, which isn't like me to be that way but you get the gist of where my head was....not a happy camper. Anyways, just wanted to let you all know that I am feeling better and while the scale STILL hasn't moved this week even though I am doing all the right things and limiting sugar & carbs, I am hanging in there & continuing to keep on keepin on. I know that it will come off....I am just a very slow loser. To each one of you ...thank you for your wonderful words of encouragement! I have read & re read those comments & appreciate you all being there for me. This isn't easy but I do feel like I get by with a little (or maybe its a lotta) help from my friends! You are all simply the best!
I have decided as a bday gift to myself that I am going to rejoin my gym this weekend, maybe even as early as tomorrow. I have been hesitant to go back because I am so afraid to pay all that money to rejoin and have my Achilles tendonitis act up again from stressing the tendons too much but I know that I need to increase my activity level so I think that I may try some water aerobics classes & maybe try a spinning class or gentle yoga. The gym that I am joining is the "Taj Mahal "of gyms and offers a wide variety of things to do. I am just so used to the elliptical & the "gym" part that I never utilized the other things so perhaps I will do that this time around to mix things up a bit. I love this gym because it is immaculate & adults only & people of all ages, sizes & fitness levels so I never felt weird being there. The trainers there are fantastic & always made me feel welcome & always called you by name. Somethings gotta give here girls so I am biting the bullet & going back! I always felt so good after exercising and I realize that although it is $59/month, I am worth it!!! I look at the people on the biggest loser show & they all join gyms when they go home from the ranch because they know it is an important component of weight loss. I cant say that I love to exercise but when I was in the groove & going 3-4x week, I did find myself enjoying it and the stamina I felt from it was worth it. Wish me luck! I pray this is the missing component to my weight loss lately.
Well, thanks for listening to me babble tonite. I don't feel terribly inspired lately so sorry this isn't a great inspiring post.
Hope you are all having a great week!
Love & Hugs to each you!
