“Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can't be done.” ~ Bo Bennett

I truly think a positive attitude is half the battle in weight loss. First, we need to believe that we can be successful; then, we need to believe that we DESERVE to be successful! We need to find our own personal “how” to reach our success and to keep trying until we do find it.

Welcome Marie! I'm new here myself; my name is Cathy. I too struggle finding the right balance for exercise. I joined a Curves facility in July, and I started going three times a week. It took about a month before I got over being "worthless for the rest of the day." Then I started looking forward to going, and before long I noticed that if I missed a visit for some reason, I would start to stiffen up and feel bad again. After getting comfortable with my three days a week at Curves, I added an Arthritis Aquatics class (gentle water aerobics) on Tues & Thurs. It is great -- but again, it took a while to not be totally exhausted afterward. If anyone would have told me six months ago that I would be doing 30 minutes of exercise -- of any kind -- five days a week, I would have thought they were nuts! Just keep on trying and you will find your "happy medium." Good luck to you!
