Stupid body! Why won’t it do what I tell it to??? It’s like a petulant child that says “okay” when it’s told to be nice to its sibling. Except, 5 minutes later he/she is throwing gum in the other’s hair. I’m not sure how that analogy works with weight loss, but every time I tell my body to lose weight it doesn’t wanna listen. Stupid body!
ANYWAYS… I haven’t written about my ongoing saga with weight loss for a while, so I felt it was time for an update …or lack of one. Whatever. The last time we talked about this subject, it was about a year ago and my weight was 226.6lbs. As of this morning, my weight was 210.2lbs. I’ve lost 16.4lbs in a year… not the greatest of progress, but decent I guess.
Unfortunately, I’ve kinda hit a wall with my weight loss and in order to REALLY get into shape, I need to start doing more targeted exercises. For example, because I walk a lot, my legs are pretty much fine. But my arms are kinda wimpy and I have a bit of weight in the mid-section still to lose. So, rather than try to do this on my own and end up hurting myself, I’ve decided to join a gym and get a personal trainer. I’m not trying to get crazy ripped or anything, but I just want to get into shape and I want to make sure I do it right.Â Plus, it’s really hard to motivate myself to exercise.Â But, if I have someone else helping to motivate me (and knowing that I’m paying $xxx for it)… well, that works a little better.
