Hello all my blogger friends. Well, I am up to week 8 and I have to admit, I love working out. But that doesn’t mean that it is easier. The workouts change every Wednesday and I am super sore every Thursday! But I have learned that I cannot give up. I must keep pushing forward because I know what the goal is.
The goal is to get healthy! And that is exactly where I am heading.
Day after day I am surprised by my results. And had I known that it would have been this “easy” I would have gotten a trainer long ago. I know I have said this many times before, but for me getting a trainer has been the key to optimal weight loss for me. Because I have someone there who is cheering me on! I have loved the last 8 weeks of my life because it finally feels like everything clicks. I am loving how I look, and who I am. And I feel as though life is really great!
I dont want you to think though, that my life wasn’t great before I had lost weight. Because honestly, I loved the life that I had before. But now, I feel as though I can be so much more because I am getting into shape and finding good health. There were so many things that I felt I was held back from because of my weight. And now, I feel like I could conquer anything. Its not even that I am THAT much smaller, thinner, healthier, whatever..the thing is, my perspective has changed. I realize now that I am so much stronger then I ever thought I could be.
So I know you are all waiting for the weigh-in results and here they are:
