[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
Since I started with this whole weight loss thing, I have not joined a gym. I've said before, I'm a gym slut doing casual classes at several different gyms. Over the past few months, I've also been using guest passes at Fitness First to do some freebie classes there. So today I did something I'm not sure if I've done the right thing: I joined up for a one year Fitness First membership.
Since I signed on the dotted line (well it was more like a shaded box really) I've been screaming inside. I am such a commitment-phobe. I can't even buy a weekly train ticket. And now I'm a gym member. Damn it, people make decisions to join nunneries with less angst than this.
I thought I'd write down some of the reasons for joining to reassure myself:
The cons of it are the expense and the commitment - arrrgh! And, I think, at the back of my mind is the thought that I don't deserve this. Fitness First is a pretty fancy gym compared to what I'm used to and part of me is saying - what is someone like me doing in a fancy gym? But you know something - I do deserve it. I spend at least 5-10 hours a week at the gym and I want to spend that somewhere nice. If worse comes to worst financially, I'll just quit smoking to pay for it.
In other news, weigh in today was arse. I am now 82.6 kilograms. That is a 1.5 kilogram gain. I reject what the scales tell me. It's not true. Screw them. But if it's true, which I'm not saying it is, I don't think I can lose 2.5 kgs before the end of the year. Aint gonna stop me trying though.
If you spend that much time at the gym you deserve to be somewhere nice, as long as it's not one of those pretentious places! Don't worry about your gain, maybe it's fluid and maybe it's time to give your scales a big kick! I haven't been on my scales in a week - i'm too scared.
