This is my first blog post. Yay.

I decided to join a gym back in Late september. Actually joined on October 5th, when I weighed 372 pounds. I was all gung-ho to go and lose this weight but I knew I would over-do it, and burn-out. So I started out going once a week for a week,then twice a week for a few weeks, then after 1 month of easing into it, I really jumped into it. I have been going 4 days a week (I go after work at 3:00am, and they are closed Friday to Sunday at that time).

Luckily, I have a perfect scenario working in my favor. I have a younger, obnoxious, sarcastic Gym-rat supervisor at work, who goes with meto the gym and has been teaching me there. We tend to push eachother during our workouts. I also have the daily motivation and tracking found here on Sparkpeople (HUGE HELP!!), and a loving family that wants me to live longer than "any day now..."

My routine has been watching my calories and carbs, a post work weight training program at the gym, and I recently added a 1/2 hour "at-home" cardio burn-in beore work. I have dropped 26 pounds so far from my previously 372 pound body, and I feel great.

Short term goals are to see 330 on the scale by Christmas and be under 300 by Tax day.

'til next time...

  Be cafeful. It sounds like you are losing weight way to fast. I know it can be exciting to see the weight come off quickly, but it can also be detrimental to your health. It has also been shown that weight that is lost too quickly tends to return.
