Fat Girl Confession # 24


I confess… I didn’t realize what I was missing out on! 

I never thought I would say this but I love exercising.  Now for those of you who may know me, you know I have always been someone who couldn’t stand exercise.  I believe I used to say that the only exercise I wanted to do was from my house to my car and vice versa.  Now here I am, in the gym every morning for about two hours a day and I absolutely love it.  It is a great start to my day and I am feeling healthier and healthier as the months go by. 

Someone said to me yesterday that they remembered when I first came to the gym and couldn’t even manage to jog on the treadmill and now here I am able to run 2 minutes all while carrying on a conversation at the same time which is a monumental accomplishment to me.  I honestly wish that it didn’t take this long for me to see that this was something that I should’ve been doing and to see the benefits of it.  Maybe if I had developed a love for it sooner then I wouldn’t be in such a great need to do it now.  But who knows, maybe I wouldn’t have appreciated the exhilarating benefits of good exercise before now.  I do know that now that I have developed this love of exercise I don’t think that I will ever give it up. 

I do worry though that I might be substituting my love of food for the new love of exercise.  Some say that they think I might be overdoing it and the truth is that they might be right but I guess as with any new habits that people might develop, I have to find the balance in everything and I’m sure I will.  Until next time…try something new, you never know what you might be missing!!!
