Girl! that is awesome. You are not alone and know that many of the ladies in your class are probably experience similar feelings. I take a similar class called Rep Reebok at my gym and I started with very light weights, then got injured in class (felt super embarrassed) and when I returned 6 weeks later everyone was so warm and happy to see me. It felt amazing. I had no idea they had taken notice. I now am one of the veterans and I can see my body forming muscles I didn't even know were there. Keep it up and you'll surprise yourself in absolutely amazing ways.

Love it! Joined a fitness/yoga studio last week. I went to yoga and managed not to fall over. I went to Zumba for the first time (and laughed when I couldn't keep up) I kept moving and loved it! Then I was going to go to a "Chisel and Sculpt class, but forgot my new shoes studio shoe (no outside shoes allowed) so I went to Yoga.
Speed up to Sunday morning when I chose "Cardio Blast"... WOW never has my body been through anything like this - Derrick was like a drill sergeant, yelling "encouragement" at the people he knew by his nicknames for them... I was terrified he would yell something at me so I kept pushing myself huffing and puffing, sweat coming out of places I didn't know could sweat - had to walk out of the room for a couple when I thought I was going to throw up - kept moving (slowly) until I pulled myself together and then went back in and finished the class hard.
After class he said "you did it girl, you did it!".
Ceri - lets keep being stronger than we think!

Lol, me too! And, I admit, it helps keep me focused!

Thank you. This morning when I first stepped on the scale it showed 205 I was happy I had lost weight. I logged on to submit my weight and when I jumped back on the same scale it read 208. Three tries on the scale later and the original weight was back. I think I need a new scale.
Little encouragements along the way keep us going. Thank you for your LIKE!

Great post!


Sounds so familiar!! Other toe curling remarks are: you don't need to lose weight, you have such a pretty face (uhh and the rest of me doesn't count or what) or the moment you start losing weight ooh stop before you get too skinny (which actually means, I'm jealous and I don't want to be confronted with your succes).

Change your lifestyle if you feel like you have to and don't listen to others, it's your body and your body only!
