Exercise has been like a roller coaster ride for most of my life. I would have times when I’d be dedicated and committed to it, then life, work and family would require my focus and it seemed like I always had to “start over”. It’s not enjoyable to go through the beginning phases of any exercise routine when you’re out of shape, and I often would overdo it and then dread it.
Weight loss had become unreachable to me. The things that worked before just didn’t work any longer. I tried weight watchers, green smoothies, and even the Medifast plan, with nothing to show for it but a few pounds lost. At almost 62 years old, I was telling myself that this was the way it would be for the rest of my life.
Then one day I stepped on the bathroom scale and realized I needed help. The numbers were constantly going up and my “fat” clothes were tighter than ever. I did some searching online and visited a couple of gyms. Then I found Individual Fitness. From my first visit with Jim I felt more energized and was even excited to start working out again.
Since joining Individual Fitness just a few months ago, I’ve learned to exercise smarter. Being consistent is paying off and my weight is going down by following their guidelines. It feels wonderful to remove slacks from my closet that started hanging off me. I am optimistic that I will reach my goal this year. The work is up to me, but the support I’ve received from the staff here is motivating me to keep going and not give up.
