In early July we joined a health club and I started lifting weights and doing about an hour of aerobic work. I haven't been dieting because it sucks to diet in summer (heaviest workload of the year, plus kid at home
). I haven't lost any weight since I started-- in fact I've gained 2 pounds-- but I am looking noticeably better, and things deginitely jiggle less.
I've joined weightlifting.com's social site. Not because I want to be a body builder, but because I figure if I hang out with the hard core folks, it will help me keep my eye on the prize. I need to lose 40 pounds, but I want to do it by building muscle and getting very fit. I think it would be cool to get extremely fit, just because I don't think I can. I mean, I know I can
, it's just that I've bailed out so many times since putting on this weight. Hanging out with overly fit people will keep my attention.
