Here we go, the anticipation is over. Tonight was the kickoff for the Y not be a Loser program at the gym. The members are broken up in groups by the workout times that they chose upon registration. There were to be 7 in our group but only 5 showed up for kickoff night.
Prior to to group meeting I did the weigh in part- it matches my scale exactly which was reassuring. But....the body fat analysis. Shame, shame, shame on me. I went from elated about the weight loss to feeling like a lowly worm with the body fat analysis. Nothing I can do now, I own it, time to keep on working to give it up. Just the fact that I am carrying so much fat is upsetting. For goodness, I am carrying around a school age child in fat- not a toddler, I'm talking a school age child!
I looked around and the group is all women. All much smaller than me and all attractive. All that I could think at that moment was that maybe since I weigh so much more I could earn more team points? I'm not sure about the scoring system and how it works.
Well, on the positive side, I am doing something good for me. I joined the program to meet others who have a common goal of being fit, working out, and eating a healthy diet. I did not join to compare myself to anyone else.
I am well on my way to my goal- this program should help pull everything I am working on together.
