Glad to hear it!! It keeps us going! Stay Strong and remember Baby Steps - and it is okay if you fall down, just get back up and start over again!

yeah, i know once i go a few times, i'll get back into the swing of things. and yes, baby steps are key! i think the excitement of knowing what the end result will be, is overriding the nerves.

Welcome VivP. emoticon

Have fun at the gym and start slow. Don't push yourself to the point you won't or can't return for a few days or more.
Hopefully they have someone there so if you have questions they will help you out.
Enjoy!!

I understand how you feel about the gym, I was that way at first, but look at it this way - going by yourself, you may find the ability within yourself to push and move forward. Remember - baby steps will get you there and only you know what you want to succeed for yourself! Plus - going by yourself, you won't feel the need to meet someone else's goals right now - that you can work up to.

Baby Steps!

thanks. i might need a little motivation. i'm going back to the gym tomorrow for the first time, in over a year. i'm really excited, but also kind of uneasy. i know i'm out of shape, and i'm going by myself. which means nobody to push me, but me. i know i can do it, i'm just a little nervous.
