Gym Membership

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

I haven't had a gym membership in over 20 years. I didn't join a gym or do much exercise when I initially lost the 90 lbs. I am having such issues with just eating right, we have decided to do a family plan at a local gym. My daughter is super excited about it. I went today and am OK with it. Will see if i can keep up a routine. I had been a bit skeptical as I have a treadmill and all kinds of exercise equipment right here at home that I haven't used. I don't like being another statistic, so that might encourage me to keep things going and stick with it (not be an End of January exercise dropout). So I tracked my calories today and my exercise. Day 1 down --- at least 30 lbs to lose.

    You are doing the right thing keeping track of your food and I think the gym is great.

    I had a treadmill, etc. at home also but didn't always use it. I am starting over to lose the same 50 lbs. I take my DH to rehab (3 days a week) and started going to the gym across the street while he is at rehab. I feel more committed to using the gym than I did exercising at home. (no good reason) Now I need the self discipline to track the food I eat (which I really don't like to do) and do some exercise every day. I set my birthday as a time goal (7-24) so that gives me about 6 months to get my act together.

    Keep track of your food and make your gym trips with your daughter fun outings. The weight will come off. Good Luck to you and your daughter.
