It's been a week since my dreadful weigh-in, and so far the scale has not budged. But I feel good about the progress I am making both physically and mentally -- which is half the battle.
I am very proud of myself for meeting my goal of going to the gym this week. In addition, I have been taking more walks and sticking with my plan of eating healthier and smaller portions.
It's been a long time since I went to the gym on any sort of regular basis. Financially, for me the gym has been just like credit card companies are for people who do not pay off their balances each month. They take your money and you get nothing in return.
Because I stupidly I have not made a serious commitment to go, I have just been letting them take my monthly dues for no reason at all. It's exactly the same as throwing my money right in the trash!
Anyway, I am starting slow, but my attitude right now is "any little bit helps." I know I will have to push myself much harder and burn many more calories, but right now I am just at the "ease into it" stage. I plan to do the same (or better) this coming week as I have done this past week. My husband also goes with me, and it's great having him there to motivate me to go. Will update my progress.
On another note, my Buckeyes are in the final four! Woo hoo!!
