You guys are never going to believe this... this weeks weight loss is... 8 POUNDS! I was soo shocked!! YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS?!?!?!
#1. I am UNDER 300 POUNDS! Never again will my weight start with a "3"! YES!!
#2. I have officially surpassed my goal of reaching 299 lbs by Andrea's wedding.
I am so excited!
Also, on the agenda of totally awesome... I did a class at the gym today!! I did Group Ride. Which is a spinning class. I've been wanting to, but have been too chicken to try it, but I finally got the courage ...with the help of my friend Jodi, assuring me that I wouldn't die... I survived and it was FUN!! I got there early to make sure I had my bike set up how it's supposed to be. There were a couple people in there that helped me. Then more people came in and the instructor came in. He asked if there were any new people and I raised my hand. He came back and helped me get my bike set up. He put the handles down and raised the seat up. Perfect! We started out and I was doing well. Then we stood. My legs were burning so much!! I thought... How the heck am I going to get through this. I can't stand and pedal worth a darn! Then he said.. and that's the warm up... LOL! Wow this is going to be interesting. But you know what? I really got the hang of it and by the end I was standing for a long time and pedaling while were were "going up a big hill." It was so much FUN!! There was an older guy next to me that was really nice. He asked me a couple times during the class how I was doing and at the end he told me I did a good job. :) There is one thing that I noticed. While riding, my knees and thighs kept running into my tummy and boobs. It will be nice when they get smaller so I don't have to have that contact. The instructor told me afterwards that I will probably be sore and it will take a couple weeks of going a couple times a week to get used to the seat. I don't feel too bad right now. Next time I will have to turn up the intensity a little bit more. I was worried this time about pushing myself too much and getting too worn out by the end. Don't get me wrong... I was pretty worn out at the end and my legs felt like rubber. I sweat soo much, too! I thought it was funny when I stood my sweat would hit the front wheel. ...it was worse because in the beginning of the class I dropped my towel and I wasn't going to get off to pick it up. I'm so glad I went!
What a GREAT DAY!!
