Things are going well with my weight training and the meal plan that I'm following. I'm focused and driven and enjoying eating healthy (sesame Ezekiel 4:9 bread is the BEST!). In less than two months, I've lost *16* pounds!
Although I am determined to succeed, I must thank my trainers, Craig and Allan, and my husband, Matt, without whom I would be unable to stay committed. Their encouragement and support are crucial. I especially want to thank Allan and Craig for challenging me and sharing their fitness wisdom about meals and exercise techniques. In no way, have I ever felt judged or inadequate. For the first time in my life, I actually look forward to working out!
I'm feeling better both mentally and physically and enjoying retiring clothing that is too loose or wearing apparel that I have not worn in a very long time. I also like being able to buy tops that are a size smaller!
In addition, I'm proud of how my strength and endurance has increased, i.e. how many more knee tucks I can do and heavier weights I can lift, etc., since I first started training. Alas, I was so doubtful at first.
I will close for now but applaud and encourage anyone who is on a similar journey to create a new and healthier self you. Always remember that the only person you can change is yourself and that you are WORTH it!
