I’ve been actively lifting weights 3x/week for about 8 weeks now. It’s not something I’ve opened up & talked about since I don’t want to be flooded with opinions masquerading as “advice.” I’m doing a program, I’m being smart, & I’m seeing progress.
This morning, I squatted 135 lbs. That’s a 45-lb plate on each side of the bar. I felt hella proud. I don’t think I’ve squatted a plate since high school. It was a great milestone for me. 🙂
It feels good to be getting into physical health. It’s amazing how being on the right medication gives me the mental ability to keep going forward. I have the energy now & the willpower to stay with this. I can’t tell you how huge that is to me. I’ve struggled for YEARS with not knowing what was wrong with me. Didn’t seem to matter what I did or read or ate or anything, I couldn’t do it. Kinda sad, right? At least, I have it “fixed” now & I can continue moving forward.
My weight’s still around 20 lbs lost but I can tell I’m looking smaller. My clothes are fitting better & I’m starting to see some definition in some areas. When I’m upset or angry or frustrated, my first thought is to go to the gym. Go work it out. So if I start looking like a fitness model, you can imagine how frustrated I’ve been. 😉
Kidding…but only sorta… 😉
