I joined Planet Fitness Gym (click link for offer expires February 26th, 2010) yesterday, not only because it was a great deal; $20/month, with a $39 one-time annual fee (for the Black Card Membership) with a good amount of perks, but because after a certain event in my life (way too personal to share) I went up to 133 lbs!!! The biggest I’ve ever been (I’ve always been a “small” girl), and don’t plan on being that big unless for a good reason like pregnancy. I also want to be & stay healthy.
It was HARD getting the weight off, but after eating right, and making very small changes like taking the stairs instead of the elevator/escalator, taking the bus that drops me 4 blocks from my house instead of the one that drops me one block away has truly made a huge difference. I’m down to 125.75 lbs now! Very close to where I was before, which was 123 lbs. For my height, my Body Mass Index (BMI) was “normal” at 133lbs, but that’s not okay for me because I was never that size, and a few pounds over, I’d be overweight! My goal weight is 120 lbs. Even when I was 109 lbs (too skinny for me in my opinion) I’ve always wanted to be at that weight & maintain it. 123 lbs is good too. I am 5.75 lbs away from my goal, and I know with some hard work, it will be easy to achieve. I plan on going to the gym at the very least three times a week,
I know there are people who are ashamed to talk about their weight for whatever insecurity, but I am not. I’m sharing this because I know there are some people who might be in the same predicament as me, and finds my story encouraging or vice versa.
I’ll keep those of you who are interested up-to-date.
