300 plus lbs.....Never Been

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

So today I go to gym and meet with trainer and while I am doind my strength training he ask me how did I feel since our last session.....keeping in mind while I am working with him I rarely say anything. I just do what he says and get it over with. Usually I curse in my car after its over blaming myself for getting this heavy in the first place. But today I decided to tell him I was really sore and he says....You shouldn't still be sore! What? Excuse me good looking made of all muscles but have you ever and I mean ever in your entire life been fat much less obese and over 300 lbs.....exactly! Don't tell me I shouldn't be sore cuz my whole body ache its a daily struggle to move this much weight. All that said in my head of course.....instead I responded with.....Oh Really?
Thats one thing I really don't like about people......if you haver never walked in my shoes you couldn't possibly tell me what I should or shouldn't be doing or feeling!
Actually I like being a little sore it lets me know I worked hard and eventually.the results will be satisfactory.....
Everyday I leave the gym I give myself plenty of reasons to quit but the next day I have 1 Important reason to return........Me!!!! Today I Love me

    emoticon Just keep doing what feels "Right" to you! You may or may not feel sore, and you ARE Right -- Some Soreness is to be expected, and is a sign of Progress!! Enjoy it!!
    emoticon Maybe the Trainer 'mis-spoke'? He may have been truly concerned that you are doing too much too quick, or that the Stretching after your work outs is not effective. Be honest with him and he may be able to adjust something in the workout so that you are not as sore, but you still get a Good Burn.

    emoticon emoticon YOU ARE WORTH IT!!

    Thats awful that he said that. Being sore is a good thing, but can also be a sign that you may be pushing your body too hard. I'm over 300lbs and was sore too, turns out I hurt my foot pretty bad. So listen to your body, and if you are too sore dont beat yourself up if you need to switch to something low impact, or even take a day off.

    Keep up the good work at the gym though :)
