Today is my 41st birthday. Yup, 41 today.And I received the very best ever birthday gift. In fact, I gave a BIG gift to myself. HUGE
I’ve been talking about losing weight and getting healthy for a while. I’ve even been working at it and lost about 15 pounds. And then, I reached a plateau, and stopped losing. I realized that I needed help. I need some guidance on what else my body needed to get going.
I have a lot of weight to lose: my long term goal is to lose at least 85 pounds, but for now, I have a goal: 25 pounds before Christmas. (Remember my Resolution?) I know that I can totally do it, too.
I met with the trainer, Jim Spada. I knew that the success for the program for me would be my relationship with him and my comfort level with the gym. I was very nervous about both. Jim immediately put me at ease and I just know he’s going to be able to inspire me to get to where I need to go. I’m actually looking forward to him kicking my butt!
I’ve also been visiting to gym for the past week to get a real feel of the people there. I am totally in love, but saving that for another post. All I can say is the vibe there is every single staff person is rooting for me. They may not know my goals, but they’re rooting for me nonetheless.
One important thing I needed was accountability. That’s the reason for this blog. I need support and accountability. I need to know that although I am responsible for the work, I have people who ‘have my back”- who will show support and keep me accountable. Want in?
