I seldom get to acknowledge I am making progress so WooHoo to me!!!!
Things are going well with my personal trainer. I have been going for 5 weeks and have not missed a day. That is a great accomplishment for me. Normally I would have given up or at least missed a day or two. Now don't get me wrong. There was one day I wanted to cancel and made the call to do so, but when I got Shana's voicemail ( my trainer) I hung up and put my big girl panties on and went as scheduled. I was proud of myself for not canceling. So, I have gotten through 5 weeks and will continue another 5 weeks. My strength has improved. I have gone up 25% in weight and have increased my reps each session. I am stronger for sure.
I signed up for a free Weight Watcher's meeting and attended this past Thursday evening. I was nervous but got along just fine. I was not going to go, but talked myself into just trying it. There was no commitment involved so why not try it? I got involved with the meeting and joined the conversation. It was nice to be in a group of others like me...all wanting to lose weight and get healthy. After the meeting I decided to join for a month and see how it goes. I didn't really understand the points system but once it was explained to me I caught on and have been doing very well with it. I have been under my points each day. Most of the food I eat has low points of none at all, so I can actually have more food than I thought.
I started a new anti-depressant at the end of October and it is doing wonders for my mood. I am much happier and have had no desire to binge. That voice I was hearing that told me to , "eat, eat' eat" has disappeared. I feel perkier and in general, good!! I no longer sleep all day and even my afternoon naps have gone down in number.
A few things have gotten off track....like my water intake. I have dropped considerably so I need to work on that this week. I had gotten to a gallon a day and now have trouble getting in 8 glasses. Gotta work harder on it.
All in all, I am making progress and it feels good!!!!!
