After spending the last two years in a lot of pain and unable to do much exercise between two frozen shoulders and a trapped nerve in my neck (and a LOT of drugs making me feel drowsy and sick), I decided enough was enough. Cutting down, eating healthily still hasn't shifted the weight I gained through the inactivity, although I don't think Hypothyroidism helps either. Sooooo, on Monday, after the scales showed me I was my heaviest yet, I took action - a two hour walk, then joined a ladies gym on Wednesday. No posers in front of mirrors, no stick insects making me feel bad and choosing a time when it isn't busy means I can exercise without embarrassment. It has taken me until I am nearly 52 to set foot in a gym but I intend to use this annual membership to help get me back (at least) to the weight I was before. 3lbs down this week so far, but another 30 to go! Wish me luck!!
