Joining a gym, I believe was the best decision I have made in a long time. Last week I went every day except Friday. On Wednesday I had my first personal training session and he set me up with a weight training plan. The 1st day I work arms, next day is legs, and the last day is shoulders and back. We will meet every three weeks and evaluate my progress. I finished my first week last night and I could barely finish because I was so sore.

After working out at the gym 2-3 hours a night I weighed in this morning at 207.2.. that is a loss of 2.8 lbs for the week. I am now under a pound of finally hitting my first mini goal.

I have been trying to be careful with what I am eating but I have not been tracking at all - just sort of eye balling it. After all the working out I have been doing I just assumed I would have had more of a loss. Don't get me wrong, I am THRILLED with what I have accomplished this week!

By next week I will be celebrating my mini goal.. hope you all enjoy your week.

recap of the last few weeks.

Days go by far too quickly.

I haven't fell off the bandwagon completely.. still plugging along. I weighed in this morning at 210. The last few weeks I have ranged anywhere from 214 to 209. So glad to see the number I saw this morning. Four pounds from my first mini goal.

The last couple of months I feel like I have been phonying this in. I know I have been lost almost 30 pounds, which is great- but I know I can expect more outta myself.

Last night I joined a gym. I went and worked out for about an hour and again tonight for 2 hours. I feel lost in there.. I don't know what I should be doing! I went ahead and set up a personal training session (it's free, thank goodness!) for tomorrow at 6:30pm, so hopefully he will be able to set a plan up for me.

Oh, today I had a doctor appointment and I was dreading to step on the scale because I didn't want my home scale to be wrong! But much to my surprise it read 212.. which means my scale is correct. I am quite pleased.

I can almost fit into my size 16 jeans. I can get them on and button them but def not comfortably and they do NOT look good. I look forward to the day the fit just right.

That's all for tonight..
