My First Blog Entry-Tuesday, Oct 25, 2011

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

I had Weight Watchers this morning. Not happy, had a 2.2 lb gain. I know I did everything right, except one thing. I don't move enough. Also, I have Edema in both legs for over a year now and I'm on meds. I tracked everything I ate, I drank water, I didn't go over my daily Points. I just do not know where to begin with exercise. I have a lot of workout dvds too. My husband and teenage daughter workout everyday. I feel embarrassed to workout. I have to be alone with the blinds closed. I will get to working out, I promise.

I have been with Weight Watchers most of my life, off and on. I don't believe in weight loss gimmicks and I sure can't afford to have my meals sent to me. I love Weight Watchers, that's why I still keep going even though I'm yo-yoing. I feel different this time. I feel like I want to do it. Weight loss won't happen unless you want it to. You have to want it for yourself, not for your spouse, your friends, your job, etc. I want it for ME!!!!

    I was a lifelong WW too. I have joined so many times I could wallpaper my house with the cards! But...I agree, as good a plan as it is (and it is) you still have to DO it for yourself. I'm managing without WW at the moment myself. I think it's great you are hanging in there no matter what. Think about checking out the chair exercise team here...there are a few things there you could do!

    I am with you about being embarassed to work out in front of others. I cleared a place in my bedroom to do chair aerobics and hid out there at first. Start with baby steps. I started with 10 minutes a day and have worked my way up to 45 and strength work 3 times a week. Now, I am completely shameless. I plug into my MP3 player wherever I am and do my chair marching. I still don't walk very well(arthritis in both knees), but I can chair march up a storm. emoticon

    Yes, indeed everyone's advice is so great - baby steps is what got me connected to SP in the first place. Every other program is so overwhelming, all-at-once. I love feeling successful right away. So do anything - march in place to your fave music! Chair exercises! Hey, log thos ten minutes is all you gotta do! They add up over time and there you are with a personalized 35 minute workout plan! emoticon

    I concur with taking baby steps. Just walk to the mailbox and back for 10 minutes. You'll be surprised at what you can do. Keep it going! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Start small - go for a brisk walk, do some lunges and squats. Then slowly add in more strength and cardio. You could do some jump roping, push-ups, etc. Once you have a nice foundation, you will feel more confident in popping in a DVD and sweating!

    Good luck!

    Great first blog and believe me you have the right attitude. To help you exercise, just start walking bit by bit. I call this my baby steps. I couldn't hardly walk and was bed ridden well actually chair ridden as I couldn't sleep in nothing but my couch. I am up and walking and moving daily, trust me darling friend anything is possible. Check out my new video blog and if I can do that in public during the day, you can too hun!

    I am praying and wishing you the very best luck ever!
