New Low and Gym Membership

I hit a new lowest low this morning!!  I'm officially down in the 250's.  259 to be exact.  And it feels great!!  With ever pound I lose, I gain confidence and motivation and excitement at my new life!!

Yesterday I got a gym membership to a local gym near my house.  Its just the basic gym with exercise equipment (eliptical, treadmill, bikes, etc.), free weights, and weight machines.  Its only $19.95/mo. which fits perfectly into our tight budget.  I was a member a few years ago but... well... we all know where that went.  But I went tonight and it was so great!  I surprised myself at my endurance!  I did 30 minutes of cardio on the recumbent bike.  It was exhausting, but it felt GREAT!  Then I did 15 min. on the eliptical.  I did great which surprised me because the last (and only) time I got on one of those devil-machines, it was pure carnage.  I couldn't make my body move the right way.  It was like watching a clown run backwards in scuba flippers.  But today... today I did it!  Only for 15 mins, but I did it!  I ended with a 10 minute cool-down on the treadmill on a level 12 incline. 

Tomorrow my sister (you know, the super-skinny one) is meeting me at the gym to work out together.  I'm actually excited!

In other random news... my bff and I reconciled.  I saw on her facebook that she was sick today and I couldn't help myself.  I called her to see how she was and left a message saying that I thought this nonsense between us was stupid.  When she returned my call we had a great talk.  We both apologized and hashed out the major miscommunication  we had the other day.  Things are probably going to be tense for a while, but I think we're going to be ok.  So, thanks for the support ladies. 



  1. Congrats on the new low! You're really plowing along! Glad to hear you worked things out with the BFF. Those are some of the hardest conversations to have, but so worth it in the long run.

  2. Yay!! Congratulations on your new low and on your gym membership. Sounds like a really great deal. :D

    And glad you and your friend got things worked out. Arguments are so hard, but sometimes they get needed issues out in the open to be resolved. :)
