Third time HAS to be the charm right??
Thursday, June 24, 2010
So this is my third time starting my blog.
I never gave up, just lost track and stopped blogging because I wasn't doing anything. I would lose weight and then gain it right back the next week. I made myself only get on the scale once a week. I ate healthy meals, but the sometimes snacking and gorging myself on extra food on the weekends with my family, didn't help. It maintained my weight at or within 3 lbs of the original weight.
I moved recently and now I was walking over 3.5 miles per day, albeit slowly.
Well last month, a gym had opened up near me and of course, not having money to pay for a gym, I didn't even take a second look. UNTIL my brother and his gf went. Then they took my parents in. My mom told me about how right now, if I sign up before the end date, I could get my gym membership for $16/month FOREVER! No contracts, no obligation except to myself. I thought, I spend that much on myself in two weeks buying coffee and fast food!
So now I am a member of Vision Quest! I go with my mother about 3-4 times a week. And in two weeks of going and getting two FREE trainer sessions, I have lost 11 lbs!! I have tried and TRIED to get past this 241 lb mark since Sept. 09 and it just wasn't working. Now I've gone past it and then some! I'm so proud of myself and I can't wait to hit the gym again tonight! Third time this week already!
