Well I finally joined the gym yesterday. The doctor told me to join in September, better late than never. So I went today and rode the recumbent bike for 1.3 miles. That is a lot for me. I felt great that I moved the body. I tried the elliptical but it hurt the left knee too much. I will try to go again tomorrow. My fat went on slow over the years and now the gym will be slow too.

Some days I look in the mirror and see fat me and other days I say, WOW, I look thinner today. After reading other's blogs I think my size goal is around a size 12. My husband thinks I could go smaller. Never been smaller than 12-14 when we got married 42 years ago. I was thinner then because of diet pills. Nasty way to lose weight.

Have a great day all.

Congrats on the bike riding. I have a real hard time exercising (I hate it), I really have to force myself to do it.

BTW - don't cut yourself short on the clothing size. I thought 14 would be great..... I'm now in size 10. Wow!!

I bet you get below size 12, just my prediction.....

Great reminder to get out there and MOVE. My choice of exercise is walking, but I find many excuses to "skip it today." I will be banded on the 21st of this month and I can't have the mindset that I will start to excercise once I have the surgery. I know that is not the way to think. Now---to get myself out of this chair and out the door for a brisk walk! : )

Good Luck in your journey.

It's easier to start and continue exercising when you enjoy it so look for activities that you enjoy. I love cycling, dancing, walking and swimming, which gives me plenty of variety as well.
