1 more step in the right direction

Monday, August 13, 2012

I finally joined a gym. I have put it off and put it off. One I don't like people looking at me because I am so big. Two I don't know how to use the machines. Three will I even have the time to go, and excuse after excuse. I went to 24 hour fitness and asked a lot of questions, looked around and said yes I can and Yes I will do this. I'm very excited to finally start an exercise program. I did a little walking here a little dancing there but this will be much better for me I think in the long run. My sister Janet joined with me and we can take our night kids to the child care there so we can work out 3 or 4 times a week. I have an orientation to get weighed, set goals and learn the machines tonight and then I will work out. I hope to take up Zumba soon as I saw it through the window and it looks fun. When I get down to 250 (61 lbs) I am going to start Tae Kwondo again. I WANT TO LIVE not just exist.

    Oh, my dear, I am so-o-o-o happy to read your blog. It wasn't until recently that I realized that I was and had always been physically handicapped due to my own self indulgence, and decided that I don't want to be anymore. I knew I was overweight and unattractive, but the fact that there were so many things I couldn't do just because I was too big really hadn't dawned on me. When it did, it was an eye-opener. Shortly after, Susan put something from SP on Facebook. It is an answer to prayer. I'm glad for you girls, getting after it so much younger. Hope you and Janet enjoy the gym. Wish I could go with you. I'm about to apply to the Kroc again, so I can go to the gym. I want to try Zumba, as soon as my knees are stable. emoticon emoticon
Love you, Aunt Janet
