I joined a gym last night! The weather is heating up and I want to be sure I never have an excuse not to exercise. A nice cold gym is the perfect solution and I can afford $15 a month. The guy who signed me up made me feel surprised/shocked and so good when he said I looked like I kept myself in good shape and when he was surprised when I told him my age. I really expected more of a "we have facilities for all fitness levels and ages" approach if you know what I mean. Of course I told him about sparkspeople and he knew exactly what I was talking about. He says he's recommended it to some of his clients. He loves the tracking tools.

I tried on 'little' jeans this morning and found the cargo pants my daughter gave me fit. They're supposed to be quite loose and I have a few lbs to go before they will look right but I couldn't button them when she gave them to me and they're no longer even tight. A pair of jeans I gave to my daughter last year, because I knew I'd never fit into them again. go on and button now. Out of the jeans she gave me, the first pair of jeans I could just barely squish into are fitting nicely now and are even a little loose. I now fit into more of the jeans than I don't fit into. I haven't had this many pairs of jeans to choose from in years!

I can't believe how much of a difference being dedicated to my Sparks program has made. I'm not even the same woman I was at the first of January. I'm being completely honest when I say "if I can do this, anyone can". I am a believer of being a 'lazy' fitness person. I don't push myself too much. I simply make sure I do the best I can and don't beat myself up when I make mistakes along the way. I now KNOW I will meet my weight goal and I can be healthy.

It's time to put on my sweats and get out for my walk today because I have places to go and things to see in my fitness future. Yes my friends, I have my spark back :)
