I’ve struggled with weight since my late 30’s. Weight Watchers, step aerobics, Curves, Atkins. You name it, I tried it. My weight has gone up and down a hundred times.
The last years of my working career were hectic. I traveled for 18 months where lunch was provided and dinner every night was in a restaurant. When the traveling stopped, I worked on stress filled projects more hours a week than anyone should work. My last 2 years were filled with 80+ hour weeks, working lunches with food brought in, “I deserve chocolate” afternoon treats, late nights snacking at my desk.
When I retired two years ago, I “vowed” to lose the weight that had packed on. I joined a gym and went every day. For a few months. I lost 6 pounds. Then a relative was given a life threatening diagnosis. I spent the next year helping her. No more time for exercise and a lot of sitting around. I was emotionally and physically drained.
By this time it was October 2015. The holidays were coming and I knew that meant more pounds. Then I saw a Facebook post from a friend. I had certainly noticed that she had lost weight and looked awesome. I didn’t, however, know how she did it. I talked to her and called Tall Trainer. I was too late for the November class but signed up for December.
I didn’t gain my normal 5 pounds of holiday excess, I lost 6 pounds! I was amazed. During, the last day of class in December, one of the other ladies said how “magical” it was at Tall Trainer. I wasn’t sure what she meant. Seven months later, I know. The comradery is beyond belief. We encourage each other, laugh, sweat together and are the biggest bunch of “losers” I know. I am stronger than I ever thought I would/could be at this age and am looking to keep going and get even stronger. I never knew I’d look forward to pushing the sled, doing planks and lifting weights. I call the exercises “Jeremy’s book of torture” but it’s truly “Jeremy’s book of magic”. I hate getting up in the morning but I never don’t want to go to Tall Trainer. From the bottom of my heart, I thank Jeremy, Andrew, Sarah, Lynn, Christine, Lori and all the members of the 7:45 class. You have changed my life.
