My favorite of all of the victories is how much healthier my skin is looking, my face has slimmed down and it actually looks like I have a jaw line, my back pain has reduced.....I AM LOVING my toned thighs and my lifted tush! Oh, so is my husband. It also sets a better example for my children to see their mom going for a healthier lifestyle and they are learning along the way, which will help them in the future. My energy level is much higher. I am reducing my risk of SO many health problems...diabetes mainly. I had gestational diabetes and had to go on 2 types of insulin while being pregnant with my daughter AND it runs in my family so my risk level is high. Oh, I can also say that before finding a better rhythm...actually a rhythm at all. I started doing Zumba and I am so proud to have some kind of coordination going on. I barely exercised before and I exercise a minimum of 5 times a week now.
I have to say that the one thing that I am absolutely ecstatic about is that I have had a higher dedication commitment within this group than I have before. It is always changing, there is tons of support and it is really keeping me accountable for my actions. That in itself is a HUGE victory for me, because I get bored and walk away and have so many times before. I can admit that has always been my biggest problem in getting fit and sticking to it....BOREDOM! Sweet victories of working out!
