A Big Step

So today I took a BIG step for me. I joined a gym today. It was my first time in a gym in about 7 years. I have only been in a gym 2 times before today. I never liked gyms. I have always struggled with my self esteem and have never really liked my body, and so going to a gym was scary for me.

I was always afraid to walk inside a gym and have people look at me and wonder why I was there since I was fat, I was afraid people would think things about me, or that I would feel out of place. I was always afraid of walking in and just seeing a bunch of people who are already in shape.

So to sign up and actually walk inside was a BIG step. But I did it. Today I did the elliptical, the bike, and the treadmill at an incline for a total of 63 minutes. It definitely made me sweat. After the elliptical my legs felt like jello hahah!

But I didn’t feel uncomfortable like I thought I would be. Yes, it was a bit weird since it was my first time, but there weren’t a lot of people there which helped. The guy at the front desk was nice, and I was able to get a lot done.

Today was also my weigh in day and I lost 1 pound which means another step in the right direction. I am excited to make it to my end goal and see the final result!
