it’s no secret i hate my weight. i figure i’ve got about 60, 70 lbs to lose, easy. maybe even 80. but it appears that self-reproach isn’t enough motivation to do something about it.
i think it hurts my get-up-and-go that it’s really not a health issue. despite the fact that i’m carrying extra weight, i’m in relatively decent shape, i’m active, and i don’t have any health issues (apart my hereditarly bad knees). it’s really a matter of image and confidence, aka–says the voice in my head–vanity. and i just can’t seem to fit such frivolity into my schedule.
we’ve established in the past that i work better in a group. i can pencil in a class, feel like someone’s waiting for me to show up, and end up going on a regular basis. plus, it’s fun. however, classes in this area run between $60 and $80 per month (for about 8 sessions).
i’ve got a nice gym membership — at $12/month, it’s a great deal…if i go. but it doesn’t include classes. i’m trying to convince myself to just GO and WORK OUT.
i love to walk, and there’s some nice safe sidewalks around my neighborhood, not to mention the lake near work. but somehow (again) there never seems to be time in the schedule for random wanderings.
i’m in the market for ideas. >.<
