I just noticed that I celebrated my one year gym membership anniversary (June 11). I remember going to the first water aerobics class. I enjoyed it but the other members talked all during the workout. I have grown so much since then. I've taken a variety of group exercise classes - Zumba, weightlifting, Master's Strength, Jazzercise & RIPPED classes. I've also run a 5k.
On most days I exercise at least 2 hours - one hour in the morning and one in the evening. And now I'm about to seek Zumba certification. One of my church members remarked last night, that I should videotape the moves I had the kids doing and make a exercise dvd! Some days I don't recognize myself!
I was going through some pages on the Spark website today and according to my BMI- I'm still obese. I don't feel obese; in fact I've not felt this healthy since high school. I didn't gain my weight until I graduated college and moved out on my own. I was lonely; 2 hours away from my family and I ate to "comfort" myself.
