A bit of good news, future plans and a gym membership=)

So, my life has just generally sucked lately. I have been really depressed and haven't had the motivation to do anything. I had a long talk with my husband last night about my current feelings and my fears about the future. I was feeling a little better after the talk, tired but much less stressed.
After waking up this morning, I felt this sort of renewed sense of self-worth. I decided that I was not going to continue to be down on myself. I got my kids off to school, pulled out my workout clothes and drove to the Curves gym down the road from me. I met with the owner and tried out all the equipment. I really liked it there. I signed up for my free week and walked out feeling awesome. I had only done a few seconds on each machine, but just moving my body made me feel better.
While I was at the gym, I got a bunch of measurements done. I wasn't paying too close attention to many of them. One that really hurt was my body fat percentage, 48.8% Nearly half of my body is just fat. GROSS. However, the good news came next. She had me step on the scale. I watched as she slid the first weight to 250 (NOT SHOCKED), and then I watch in somewhat amusement as she moved the smaller weight, first to the 30, which is where I thought I would be. Then over to the left to 28. 278 POUNDS. I hit my 20 pound loss. I was so excited. I can't wait till this Sunday, so I can really celebrate.
So, I have some future plans that are somewhat exciting. Next Thursday the 18, I am attending my son's very first field trip to the nature center=) Lots of walking. Friday the 19, I am doing a walk-a-thon with my oldest daughter at her school (We are team Michigan State,,Go Green Go White),,and then finally Saturday the 20th, my husband and I are taking the family along to my youngest daughters girl scout trip to the apple orchid. Picking pumpkins. I can't wait.
