Okay, calm down, I know! I am so psyched about everything i've been doing the past three weeks, and I CAN'T believe it's been 3 weeks since I decided to change my lifestyle. Last Thursday at the weigh-in I was at 289 even. Which is down 11 pounds from when I started!
I can say though that I have been feeling really great just getting to the gym and working out. I have already seen progress and while the weight isn't MELTING off- I can feel my body waking back up and responding to all this movement. I can be kind of intense and hardcore, so hopefully I don't burn myself out!
I really didn't know what to do when I started going to Gold's. I have never really gone to a gym or done set workout routines. BUT through Sparkpeople and a few other sites- i have focused on strength training with bits of cardio.
OH- I am also proud of myself because in 18 days it will be my one year anniversary of quitting smoking. I did have a few slips, but only when I had been drinking OR it was a big event. :P
I also gained a whopping 25 pounds in this past year, putting me at my heaviest. I've always been a big girl, and it never really bothered me. But when I had troubles unhooking my bra and fitting into a theatre seat- I knew it was time.
So maybe i'll write more about myself later. But the couple of people who have supported me already have been awesome!
