I’m what one would call obese and extremely unfit. I can’t fake that.
Doctor’s have told me to walk, make better food choices, portion control, I know all the right things to do. I swear.
Several weeks ago, I found a video on FB abut a new type of dance/exercise. I debated buying the program. Only $80! But I had no idea if I could do it. Maybe I would spend the money and it would sit on the shelf and go to waist (pun intended). So I search online and found a couple of 5 minute videos of the program. The point is to add them together in whatever way you want to make a work out program that you can do.
The moves were very easy and I could do 2-3 songs and not be in pain the way I was walking outside.
SO I did more searching. I found more, longer videos. 15, 30, 45 minutes.
Now I do up to 15 minutes in the morning before I shower just to warm up my muscles and get my blood moving. When I get home from work, I do 20-30 minutes. On the weekend I do it all together so I have a 40-60 minute walk in my living room.
Well, the scale tells me I have no lost weight.
Am I discouraged? A tiny bit.
My feet have shrunk. I’m thinking my circulation is better so they do not swell every day. I am more flexible, able to pull on socks without getting out of breath! And! the BIG AND! I lost a pant size!!!!!!!!
So it’s working… not in every way but in some ways. So out the window goes discouragement. and in comes a new ME!
