taking pride in myself (something I never do)

Saturday, April 10, 2010

For months I have been disapointed that I have not lost any more weight. I measure myself and have not lost on inch. I go to the gym every day, take classes, go on the eliptical, do weights, why not.

I realize I am 59 years old, back surgery, years of bad eating habits and lack of exercise. This is a life change for me, not just for awhile.

And then........

After my pilates class, my instructor came over to me, put her hand on my shoulder and said, " Diane, you are becoming very strong and have great form, keep up the good work."

Needless to say, I have been feeling so good about myself (this instructor is alway correction us on form)

I find myself walking a bit taller this week and feeling stronger. I am so glad I did not give up on myself, just do my best and not give up with my exercising that eventually I would get stronger. there are still days, the body just won't move that way, so I would motify the exercise.

    Attagirl- we women of a certain age have to gauge our success in many different ways. The pounds may seem glued to us at times but we just have to trust the process and glory in our good days and better health.
