Finally Hired a Personal Trainer!

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

It's refreshing to see a Spark Friend who is getting back into starting over after losing some of her weight loss gains. You Spark Friends are so motivating to me! I lost 70 pounds and gained half of it back, and am trying to get back down to 130 pounds. That last 20 pounds is hard because instead of losing 20, I gain 20 and lose that 20, basically keeping me even at 150 lbs. I've been on this roller coaster for the past 12 months.

I even hired a personal trainer at L.A. Fitness, and was doing good for 6 months. But I'm just not getting any traction. I'm working hard and losing weight, but gaining it back to have to lose it again. I want so badly to get that last 20 pounds off and keep it off! I was working part-time and am now working full-time, but I know I can do this! Thanks for sharing how you are starting over.

I'm excited that I finally got my gray Nike running shoes with the purple swoosh, and my purple Nike running outfit. I just mixed up my morning chocolate peanut butter protein shake, and am ready to go out and walk four miles on my day off work. My biggest motivator to losing that last 20 pounds again is so my fingers will fit into my bowling ball. I really want to use my own personal bowling ball!

It's hard to believe I was 2 pounds away from my goal weight and then gained 40 pounds back. But I've lost 20 pounds since that weight re-gain. I'm only 20 pounds away from my goal weight. I can do this! We can do this together! emoticon

    How great it is to read this blog and learn about your successes! I've always been intimidated by personal trainers but really need to consider one. Is your LA Fitness the one on Alex-Bell? If so, that's super close to me. Do you recommend your trainer? If so, what's his/her name?
