So they say if it is easy it isn't worth it, and I can completely get behind that statement now. I started this way of life about 3 months ago and I can not say that I have had many "easy" days. There have been days when I didn't really think about what I was doing, but there have been others I have literally wanted to pull my hair out. Come to think of it I did clean up a lot of hair in the bathroom the other day!
I joined the Team Weight loss at Lifetime Fitness for motivation and found a new love for strength training, and a great group of people to grunt and sweat with, who would have thought it! Getting back from the gym today I stopped and thought about how far I have come. A month ago I would be asleep right now because I was so tired and in pain that it was the only option. Now I have energy and can get stuff done before I go beddy by.
Even though these last few months have been hard I have enjoyed every minute of them. I found out that I am a whole lot stronger both physically and mentally then I give myself credit for. Giving up it not an option, success is the only outcome no matter what it looks like.
