I asked him directly what he meant when he said he loved me. So my trainer explained himself via email. He said "There are many kinds of love and the love I feel for you is, I guess, a fondness. You're fun to be around. I look forward to seeing you and hanging out (he works me like it's my job. I guess I wouldn't call it hanging out!) . Kind of a relief to know. We've got a good thing going and I'm glad we are friends, and he's a really really good trainer, I get a lot out of our sessions and he wants to see me achieve better goals in terms of fitness. My weight loss is steady. I just decided that 2 pounds a week is a more realistic goal then concentrating on losing 30 plus pounds by August. My mantra is "what am I willing to do to lose 2 pounds this week?" and I find that works. I'm having a bit of a challenge when it comes to calorie intake. Some days I have to force myself to eat just to keep my metabolism up. I am trying to become more mindful about food and exercise. The last thing I want is for any of this to become a chore. But so far, so good and everything that is happening.
