I finished out today’s exercise with two thirty minute sessions on the bike. It’s great to break up the exercise into smaller sessions. I feel like it keep my metabolism going all day long. And, I’m beginning to feel like I can handle almost anything for thirty minutes.
Today was a pretty easy day, so no big challenge comes to mind. But, I do have to say that walking into a whole new place and facing a huge new set of people was a little nerve-wracking. Throughout this process, I’ve gotten a lot less self conscious about my weight but still there is always the feeling in the back of my mind that I just don’t belong. But, I went, I fit right into the class, and I did it. Yes, there were a few things I couldn’t do, but there were other people who were much smaller than me who couldn’t do them either. And, yoga is about as noncompetitive as it gets. That helps a lot!The surprise of the day was definitely seeing the side by side pictures. It’s still hard for me to look in the mirror and see a difference in my body. I can feel it, but I can’t see it. Every day I can do new things, and I’m even starting to wear new clothes. But, looking in the mirror? Not so much. But, when I have the beginning picture next to a today picture, that I can see.
