Well I have been MIA for the past few weeks, just haven't felt to great. But I have decided a big thing in my life and have decided to tell no one my plans so I can get no negative remarks. I need encouragement not negativity. THe decision is a great one, it will have a huge impact on my family. SO yesterday I went to the gym to talk to them about personal training, turns out the have group personal training. SO I went to another gym in town and signed up for personal training through them, man that is not cheap. THe guy who will be training actually does no my plan, so ok maybe I told a few people, I also go to school with him, but he plan on working me really hard and not letting my slack. Which is exactly what I need. I can here my former sensei fuss at me for paying for personal training and not coming back to the dojo. With the dojo they have set times and days, where as with personal training I make an appointment for after school and I am set. I will still go to my gym and do hip hop abs, I am going full force with this. I also have giving up meat and dairy, in other words vegan. It's really hard cause I am wanting to eat this stuff, but I know with time the need to want it will go away. The hard part is making sure I get those 1600 calories that sparkpeople says I need in a day and that is the minimum. I want to know in a few months that I can wear something nice to my former brother in laws wedding. I want to know that I get that first big goal accomplished, which I will in just 11 more pounds. I bought a new shirt from Planet Fitness yesterday and it feels good to be in 2x instead of 3x shirts. I am even fitting into my old clothes again. I have no intentions on putting on any of the weight I lose back on. Once it is all gone after working so hard why would I put it back on, makes no since to me.

    Congratulations on your decisions. You can do this. This is encouraging. I used to belong to PF and I loved it when I went. I really miss it. I am all over the place right now trying to decide what I want to do; i.e., personal training, re-joining the gym, line dancing. All I do now is water aerobics and I do it because I love it. I just need to add something else other than the water. However, you are doing great. Hang in there. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Glad you are back emoticon and that you are making another change to improve your health. I have a personal trainer and find it to be very helpful to get me into the gym - especially now that i am just starting to exercise after surgery.

    Hi, I just wanted to congratulate you for making this step forward. Yes trainers are expensive but if it works for you it is worth it in the end. Some people need a trainer to help motivate them. We need to figure out what will work for us and roll with it. I know that working out will make a huge difference in your life. I have found that anything that I put my mind to I can accomplish. All the best to you, I know you can do it.
