So I have been going to Body Pump and Zumba now. I have to tell you, I love Body Pump. I hate it when I am doing it, but I love how it makes me feel afterwards. I already am feeling a difference in my strength.
I can get up easier off of the floor, and let me tell you at 50 that ain't easy! I can pick up my 47 pound 5 year old grandson like a sack of potatoes and carry him in my arms. I could never do this about three months ago even without complaint.
This morning I got up, and was looking in the close as to what to wear to work. I decided to try on a skirt that I have not had on in 10 years. Guess what, it fit me! An A-line skirt actually went on and looked good!
Can I tell you how excited I am for my new found control! I gave up letting the weight control me anymore. I gave up allowing food to consume me anymore. I walked away from over eating, and choosing the wrong thing, to SparkPeople, and the wonderful tools that it provided to me. I now know where I am at in my food budget each and every moment of my life. This has give me a new found freedom and sense of great accomplishment!
I look forward to moving downward and becoming the me I always knew I could be but was afraid to strive for. Anything worth doing is worth doing well, and Nothing tastes as good as THIN feels, I mean nothing!
