My oldest son (7 years old) has gotten used to me going to the gym Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and in his own way is making sure I go on those days. Whenever I do a video my 7 year old does them along side me and tells me what exercises he thinks I should do next. When I stretch or do sit-ups my 2 year old sits on my stomach.
I love that my sons are helping me in their own special way. I did not think it mattered having them supporting my exercise habits but I am finding it does. I also have my 19 year old niece going to the gym with me. In the past I decided to keep my fitness and weight loss goals private but the more vocal I am about it the more support I find. However, I have encountered some people who feel the need to tell me I am doing some things wrong and I'm ignoring those people.
Yes, I haven't lost weight (I stepped on the scale prior to starting this post and I lost 2 pounds but it isn't my day to weigh myself but I'm happy about those 2 pounds) but I feel better about myself physically. Next week I am going to the doctor to discuss my fitness regime and make sure I am still healthy.
I want to thank all the members who have sent goodies, messages, and comments I appreciate them all. I usually post from my phone and it is harder to reply to certain things so I want you all to know I appreciate you.
I am hoping by my 26th birthday (June 7th) I have lost some pounds hopefully at least 10. This is a process and I am taking my time as long as I continue to work on bettering myself I am very happy.
