So I'm pretty excited. I just moved 1,800 miles from home to Boise, Idaho & I absolutely love it here. Everybody is so friendly and welcoming- it's great! My favorite aspect of it is that It seems to be easier for me to lose weight here.. super! :) First of all, I'm on a tight budget so I tend to eat at home a heck of a lot more! Secondly, I get to go up and down these stairs every time I have to take the dog out and/or go anywhere...
When I first moved here I decided there was no way I was going to be able to do it. I freaked out & started looking for a new place to live that day... I got light headed and out of breath just with the thought of moving all of my stuff up to that third floor. THEN I had an aha moment... this was going to be really super duper good for me. I get a bunch of exercise everyday without even having a choice. The last thing that has been really helpful with my weight loss is that they have two pools & hot tubs here in the condo community. I have been out swimming and getting my tan on almost every day. It has been so liberating for me, because I have not really swam in public in a bathing suit for years. When I moved here I decided there was no way I was just going to let that pool sit there and not use it just because I'm fat and don't want people to see me in a swim suit... So, I have been taking full advantage of it!
I have been busy adjusting, working, getting settled and organizing my stuff these past two weeks, so I have not yet worked out. There are two workout facilities here on the grounds, so I plan to fully utilize them starting next week once things are a bit more situated.
So my great news is that I lost 9 pounds these past two weeks since I have moved here. The most awesome part of it all is that I haven't really tried too hard at all... I have just been eating fairly healthy, and have been going up and down those dang stairs! lol :)
I hope everybody has a wonderful day! It is sunny & beautiful here... I hope the same goes for you all!
