Two years ago I quit the gym. I was going almost every day and not seeing any results. The number on the scales would go up and down, no more than 5lbs. One year ago I learned about the problems with my endocrine system. Monday I went back to the gym and reopened my membership. I sat down with a fitness evaluator and made out a 1 month and 3 month goal plan. Basically I need to lose roughly 10lbs a month to get out of the "high risk" category. Which works for me. I've already lost 30 over the past year, thanks to medication. Now I'm hoping to see a bigger loss with all the extra exercise.
One of the scary things about sitting down with the goal planner was him asking *why* I wanted to get in shape. I couldn't bring myself to tell his 22 year old fitness major that I'm infertile and hoping some weight loss will help. Silent struggle yall. So I just told him that my doctors wanted me to get in better shape. Which isn't a lie. Both of my doctors do want me to drop some weight, and thankfully my endo is happy that I've lost as much as I have already.
The sucky thing about joining the gym on Monday is I got insanely sick the next day. I've been battling an allergy attack (brought on by the bipolar weather) and it turned the knob to 11. So basically I joined, got an assessment, worked out for about 20 minutes, then haven't been back all week. I was hoping to lose a couple extra pounds before I see my obgyn on Monday, but I don't think that'll happen.
