My Weight Loss Journey...AGAIN

So a few short weeks ago I started on the journey to lose weight AGAIN. I am the heaviest I have ever been. I have gained entirely too much weight and it has to go or I already know I will live a very short life.

I started by joining the gym across the street from my job. Go me! Okay joining is one thing but actually going to the gym is another. I signed up to have a Evaluation done by a trainer named Brenna. She is a young little curly haired white girl. Really sweet. I love her. We did my evaluation and Lord Have Mercy am I OUT OF SHAPE!!! She made me feel comfortable enough though to get the evaluation done but when I was done, I was spent. Exhausted beyond belief. I hadn't exercised since the 1900's and my body went in total shock by all the activity it was getting all of a sudden.

She had me doing crunches and I did 20 in a span of 3 minutes which she said was really good but what she didn't know was that after that my stomach said "B*tch I don't know who you think you are but going from O to 100 like that doesn't work for me". My stomach cramped up like hell. I couldn't even move. I had to lay there on the floor like a old lady until my stomach calmed down and I was finally able to pick myself up off the floor. LOL

That was a experience to say the least. It was the beginning of my new journey to lose weight. Fast Forward a couple of weeks later and 10 pounds lighter and I really do feel a change in my body. It's amazing what a difference a couple of days make. After my 1st full session with her my body was so sore but I pushed through it. I give my body a break in between each workout. I workout Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays. The weekends for right now I have been taking off to let my body recuperate. I just got back from working with her today and I AM TIRED!!!! So tired I don't even feel like typing anymore. I'll add more to my story later. Til then....
