I have been up and down on the scale all my life. I have tried and succeeded and then of course failed just about every diet that exists. However, I never exercised, EVER. It just was not something that I thought about or wanted to even try. I knew how to lose weight and I also knew how to gain it, and I was really good at both😊.
A friend of mine joined Fit 2 the Core/NutritionWorks and whenever I would see her or we would chat online she would mention it to me and how she knew I would love it, if I would give it a try, yeah maybe, maybe. Then she told me about the Little Black Dress Challenge and convinced me to participate in the challenge. She did not join the challenge, but I did.
The first day I walked into the gym and met Camille and the other trainers/girls for my initial weigh in and measurements for the challenge, I was very comfortable, comfortable like when I go into a bookstore or a library, which are my favorite places. This was going to be great……then we started working out, well maybe it is not so great ☹. I was shocked at how weak I really was, at one point my legs were so weak I was going to fall down. It would have been very easy for me to walk out after that first work out and never step foot in the gym again. But then I remembered how I felt so comfortable and welcomed and decided to persevere. The challenge was fun, I was cooking and eating properly, and exercising was getting a “little” easier. I made it through the challenge and knew I had to join the gym for my own well-being.
It has been one year since I walked into the gym and it really has been the best year for me. I have learned to take much better care of myself and realized when you feel good you do good. Healthy living “as they say” really is a thing. When you feel good and you look good, it is amazing how good everything else is. I have really stuck with it and proud of my achievements. I will be a “lifer” at Fit 2 the Core/NutritionWorks.
