Beware! A full length mirror!!
Friday, June 21, 2013
I took a big, positive step for myself yesterday. I joined the YMCA. I have the time now and will find the money somewhere! Why is it that the things we need most in life are so expensive?? I got the grand tour yesterday and a schedule to follow. I went early this morning armed with my towels, shampoo, deodorant, etc. and a brand new locker padlock. As I was getting ready to shower before going to my 9:00 am. water aerobic class, I happened to look up to the back of the locked door. Now, believe it or not, I have never owned a full length mirror. So I have never had the ghastly view that I got today. To say that I was horrified by what I saw would be an understatement. What happened to me? How did I get like this? No wonder my health is so bad. What a wake up call. That image will be imprinted on my eyeballs forever. I enjoyed my first water aerobic exercise class. Nobody seemed to be bothered by how I looked in a bathing suit. Everyone was friendly and helpful. I even saw some ladies I knew. There were some exercises I couldn't do but I'll keep trying. And the best part was getting in the whirlpool afterwards. Boy, did that make my back feel good. Now, to get my eating under control again. Never give up!!
