SOMETHING AMAZING HAPPENED AT THE GYM TODAY

Friday, August 02, 2013

I HAVE STARTED BACK TO THE GYM, TODAY WAS THE 5 TH DAY AND EVEN THO I'M SORE AND HURTING, I'M GOING I WILL NOT GIVE UP, I WILL PUT ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER, NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT HURTS. AS I WAS WALKING IN THIS MORNING, A YOUNG LADY SAW ME STRUGGLING AND SHE COULD TELL I WAS HURTING , BUT I WAS WALKING. SHE CAME OVER TO ME AND TOLD ME HOW MUCH SHE ADMIRED MY COURAGE AND COULD SHE GIVE ME A HUG. I CRIED AT THIS SIMPLE ACT OF KINDNESS. I WORKED EXTRA HARD TODAY AND I KNOW IF IT'S HURTING, IT'S WORKING AND I CAN'T GIVE UP. WITH THE KINDNESS OF THAT SWEET GIRL, THAT MEANT THE WORLD TO ME AND SHE GAVE ME THAT LITTLE EXTRA THAT I NEEDED TO GET TO THAT POOL. I'M GOING TO GET MY LEGS UNDER ME AGAIN. emoticon emoticon

    I am delighted you found the pool! There is nothing better to make you feel you can exercise. I hope you have a suit that you love. I now have about 4--maybe 5 suits! I look lumpy in them of course. But I don't care anymore. I love the classes and people are very supportive. I was always the biggest person around, but there is a lady larger than I am. We have become good friends by the way. There are men in the class, too. I think I look kind of gross, but the guys don't seem to be put off. So I go now and have a ball. Keep up the good work. It will definitely pay off. I have not lost much weight, sorry to say. I need to change some long time habits. In 4 years I have kept off 24 lbs. Being now 255 I have a ways to go. With daily exercise in place, I can now focus on my food habits. I am trying to get the habit of eating at the table. That is a huge adjustment for me, chris emoticon

    You have such a great attitude about this gym thing. I'm so glad that young lady followed through with what she felt in her heart and told you what she was thinking. That hug was such good medicine.

Keep up the good work. You're helping yourself and inspiring countless others.
