Finally Went!

I finally went to the gym last Tuesday. I survived. I honestly was about to cry when I was checking in but I managed to keep my cool. I did 25 minutes on the treadmill. What I now need to do is have them show me the equipment and weight area. I am still considering doing Personal Training. My preference is someone who has had a weight struggle at one point in their lifetime. I feel like they can identify more with what your dealing with.

Counseling seems to be helping. The book The Grief Recovery Handbook is really helping. It's work but I think it is time well spent. Honestly, I think we need to incorporate this kind of coping tool in our youth's curriculum. There are all different types of loss and I think it would make such a difference if we knew some coping tools in advance. Divorce, Loss of job, broken friendships, its all grief.

My brother, his wife and their two Biewer Yorkshire Terriers are coming for a visit in two weeks. This is a sample pic of what they look like. They have more of a black and white coloring to them.

 Poor Bogey. It will only be for a few days but three dogs and one ditty is not fair.

Eating has been bad. I am hovering at 240. Today is a new day and a new opportunity for changed behavior.

Until next time...



  1. Good for you That's awesome. Now don't stop! Don't make excuses. make time for yourself. Getting a trainer (and not someone that is a two year old just working at the gym) is a great idea. You need to be comfortable. I wish I lived near you! I would show you around!

  2. I'm glad you made it to the gym! I would prefer someone who has struggled with weight before too- sometimes they are hard to find.

  3. Don't know if my last comment made it on here. But I'm glad to have found you and your blog. I'm also starting my own weight loss journey and I've put myself out there in my blog (with photos!) Your success so far is very inspirational to me and I will be looking forward to more posts from you. Feel free to check out my own journey at Have a great day! - Colleen

  4. I hope the visit went well... and you are back on track.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
