PUSH!!! Everyday I am saying, “push…just 10 more minutes… push now 5 more… push 1 minute left…push you can do it come on!” Everyday is a new experience for me, a new challenge, how far can i push myself? Well the answer is already clear, each day I just push a little bit more. I did 10 minutes yesterday well today I’m doing 15! Each time I walk into the gym it feels like a breath of fresh air…I know that everyday I workout is one step closer to being healthy and a more active person…one step closer to running at the park with my son…one step closer to a whole new lifestyle a whole new Kelly! I did not realize before I started the full effect this would have on every aspect of my life. Not only do I physically feel better when I workout I have already started to feel better about myself, I’m happier, I just feel good inside. I’m not saying by any means it has been easy, because it has not. Everything we do hurts, but it is worth it and I just have to keep telling myself that. Sometimes I can’t do what everyone else is doing, but Lisa and all the staff at Flab to Fab understand that, and when I can’t do something they show me a variation that I can do.
We had measurements done week one, this week we stepped onto the scale. This was the hardest part for me so far, I weighed in quite a bit higher than I thought I would. I guess the severity of my obesity never really hit me until this competition. I did not expect this to be as hard as it is…I definitely feel it was an eyeopener to how unhealthy I really am. I just don’t know how I got to this point, everyone always assumes if you are fat you must eat all the time, for me that’s not the case. I have never had the problem of eating to much, my problem with food has always been not eating enough, eating more than once a day as well as making sure I eat a variety of foods so that my body gets everything it needs. I have been eating every 3 hours since we started and I’m trying to eat the foods I need. I have more energy already, which is amazing.
I can’t wait to see how all of us do! Every girl in this understands what the other girls are going though and are so supportive, we stick together we push each other and I’m thankful that these wonderful women are here for this roller coaster to a healthier life with me, We can all do it and we all will!
