Change is scary, but it's exciting too. This past weekend I gave my notice to cancel my gym membership. The gym is less than a mile from where I live, open 24 hours, even has a pool. I signed up knowing that this day would come. I figured either April 1st or May 1st I'd be without my membership, but it was still hard.
So now what do I do? So many times temporary gym memberships have led to regaining of the weight lost. Going to the gym provides an escape that working out at home doesn't quite provide, so that will be something to get used to. I have Wii games, dvds, and a bike I can take to the bike shop so it will be ride-able in the spring and summer.
I think I'm also coming off a mini plateau -- I finally dipped below 266 (258.8) yes, I know not much. I had let myself get a little lax for about a week, although not too stupid. I needed a vacation. There is a time to embrace a plateau, and a time to try and push through it. With only one more month at the gym, it's pushing time. 250s, here I come.
