I’m sure there are already some posts on this but I thought I’d at least start a fresh post regarding it!
So my SO and I have been together for close to 5 years, and in that 5 years I’ve packed on close to 40 lbs…now we are seriously talking about getting married and I am SO excited! However at the same time I’m not ready ONLY becasue I dont look like I did those 5 years ago when I was fit and in shape, I’m still A shape…but not IN shape.
So to my fellow bee’s I hope you have some guidance or suggestions for me. I’ve had a gym membership, and I’m so shy I end up skipping out on gym sessions because I don’t like other people seeing me workout for fear that I’m being judged. I prefer to workout at home…all day while I sit at work I think about what I’ll do when I get home to workout, but by the time I get home I’m so worn out from being up for 13 hours already, I usually take it easy and just take a stroll around the block a time or two. Everytime I find myself a workout partner, they end up bailing on me 🙁 My SO can’t workout with me since we work opposite shifts.
I’ve tried eating healthy, and I’m really pretty good at it, however the SO is really picky and financially it doesn’t make sense to buy groceries for both of us, it adds up to too expensive. I also tend to have a really bad relationship with food, I love me some pizza, pasta, bread…you know all those things that you should limit…those are all the things SO eats…he’s not a veggie/fruit guy. It becomes really difficult to cook for both of us while keeping healthy choices in mind.
I’d ultimately love to be down 20 lbs (to start) by his bday, next March…
I hate running – but I’ve read that ‘the exercise you hate the most are the ones you need to do the most to see results’ If this is true, I’m not sure.
Is there anyone here who has any kind of personal training history who can possibly guide me? I have no health issues, I’m not extremely over weight, I just want to slim down for when he does pop the quesiton. I’ll be happy and comfortable in how I look in photos, and in a swim suit. I know better than ‘spot training’ however my legs need slimmed a big, and my muffin top is turning into a full blown spare tire!
Please any help is appreaciated from anyone willing to guide me or share their success stories with me.
Thank you to all of you beautiful bees!
