It's your wandering Bonnieangel again, popping back in for another round of weightloss motivation. How is everyone?!! I've missed all of you very much. It's been extremely hectic in my world, so I haven't been able to post like I wanted to, but I am happy to report that I am making some positive changes in my life. So hopefully ya'll will see more (or less?!) of me.
I joined this weightloss center called Curves for Women on January 21st. It's a lot of fun. They work on this circuit type set that is based on resistance strength training. They have stations that are set up in a circle. There is a resistance machine (like for arms, legs, whatever) and in between each machine is what they call a resting platform. You walk, jog, run in place there. Every minute or so there is a prompt over the music telling you to change stations. So you move to the next station. You move around the circuit 3 times. Kind of reminds me of musical chairs for adults or something. They also have weigh ins and measurements done there. That's something that I wouldn't have DARED do before. It's optional, but I was ready for some serious change, so I figured what the heck. Might as well jump in all the way. The scale only goes up to 300 lbs, and they couldn't weigh me! I knew I weighed 304 though, so I know what I have lost. This morning I was 299. I'll take the little victories where I can get them, and on Feb. 21st they WILL be able to take my weight!
It's a very relaxed atmosphere there. Very different from what I saw at the YMCA. I'm very happy with it.
I've also started a (GASP!) a low carb diet. I've never tried low carb before, so I am trying baby steps. But my husband said he would try it with me! I was happy about that. He said that I wasn't the only one who needed to get off of the backside of their lap.
It will be nice to do this together. My dad went on the low carb thing last week and he has already lost 11 lbs! I'm not looking to lose it that fast, but some would be motivating.
Well, that's what's going on with me. I hope all of you are doing great, and I look forward to talking with ya'll again. Have a super day!!
