Awesome Workout NSV

Had a great workout tonight. I went immediately after work. I decided I like the 5 0'clock gym crowd better than the 8 o'clock crowd. The 5ers are more serious about their workouts, the 8ers are more about what they are wearing and how cute they look. Tonight there were finally a couple of chubby girls at the gym! Thank goodness I felt so out of place with all those super skinny people. I was starting to get a little self conscious, lol.

I had an NSV at the gym last night, I realized that my thighs don't rub together as much as they used to! Don't get me wrong, they still have plenty of flab, but it's better than it used to be. I have had quite a few moments lately where I have been more cognizant of my changing size and shape. Little things like fitting into chairs or the bath tub or the way that I sit and cross my legs, or how I get in and out of my car. It's like I am just becoming more aware of taking up a little less space in the world. There is still so much work to do, but by golly I am making progress! Hope to see 208 on the scale soon. Scale has been kind of fickle, but I'd like to think that I am building muscle right now with my steady gym workouts--yeah, let's go with that explanation. I like that.


  1. Awesome NSV and I am glad you found a good gym time. Time and people in the gym can make such a difference in how you feel about the whole thing.


  2. I think for me that was the first time it actually clicked for me in my head that I was really smaller. It was realizing how much less space I took up in a chair, car, booth, movies. Even though the scale read 50+ lbs lost, it took those type of moments to believe it. Great job on the gym!!!

  3. love the endorphins from a workout!
    keep on rockin it!

  4. Way to go! Muscle burns more calories than fat so you WILL see results!
