Not a Bad (re)Start
Friday, April 26, 2013
The last two days have been pretty good. I had joined a new gym, one that is a little nicer and had more to offer, including a pool. I went on Wednesday to have a introductory session and signed up for a few personal training sessions. I like my trainer, except that he looks like he is 18, and it's hard to take him serious. Nice though.
I went swimming yesterday, which is the main reason I picked the gym that I did. It went ok. I had to walk more than I thought I would have to, but I was able to keep a steady pace and my legs felt like jello when I was done, so I'm sure I was doing something right.
Food has been pretty ok too. I've had some ice cream, but kept in to a serving and having it be my only snack (unlike before when I would eat ice cream and chips and cheese and maybe something else, all after dinner)
I think I'm going to wait a whole month to weigh myself. That way if it doesn't come off quick to start, or I have a slow week in between I won't get discouraged. I am looking forward to seeing one big number. I'm hoping for at least a 10lbs. drop in this first month, but would like more around 15. I know that I will loose a lot at the start and then it will even out.
My trainer says that loosing 100lbs by this time next year is not unreasonable and I'm trying to stay positive about that. I want to also stay realistic so if it doesn't happen I don't get down about it.
