Transformation.....One sweat tear at a time!!

For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come.  This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance.

                                                                                               1 Timothy 4: 8-9

Oh.....great goodness!   It's my hopes, that ALL of my younger followers will be reading my blog today.   

First of all......I do want to say that I am SOOOOO  PROUD of myself, because I have lost 
26  pounds....   And, when I went for my check up this past Friday, my test were all very good.   My triglycerides went from being around 480 (very dangerous) down to just above 200.   Test results showed that my cholesterol was normal and my sugar levels were in the normal range.

If you don't mind, I'm gonna give myself a big HIGH FIVE, right now!!

My message to all you young readers is.......START AN EXERCISE PROGRAM....RIGHT NOW.....AND DON'T QUIT!   

I'm joking around with these  (heavy set) cartoons, but I will tell you, that you don't have to be overweight to be out of shape. my morning began with exercise.   (AND NOW I CAN'T MOVE)   I joined 3 other ladies this morning to start a friends work out program....   Wendy, Shanda, Carla and myself.     Carla, is in good shape and her job was to train the other three of us.   Of course, Shanda is in pretty good shape herself and could easily do all of the exercises.  

For Wendy and was a bit harder.   Wendy, has had a hip-replacement this year, so she really has a good reason for some of the exercises being a little difficult.   BUT AS FOR ME.....the work out was super tough because I am out of shape.  OH MY GOODNESS!!

I have no clue as to who this person is in the above photo..... (I borrowed it from the Internet)      BUT......this photo describes best,  just how I felt this morning. !!!!!!  I wasn't perspiring like a lady.....NO, I WAS PROFUSELY SWEATING!

I managed to do ALL of the exercises, but  I will most definitely tell you,  the other 3 girls, almost found themselves having to resuscitate this kind, friendly, lovable and adorable, lady!!

I promise.....another minute in that gym and I would have had myself a temper tantrum.....FOR REAL.  

Now.....some 5 hours later.....I can barely move and my entire body feels like a bowl of jello!  I think I'm completely worthless for the rest of the day and to think that I have to do it all over again this coming Wednesday and again on Friday.

Guess this is what you might call......transforming your body, one sweat tear at a time!

Love y'all.....

Shug ~

Congrats on the weight loss. I am so proud of you.. How are you doing it? Is your hubby losing weight also??? My hubby loses when I lose. Wonder why????? ha ha ha

Keep up the exercise --but don't over-do it... I just WALK and am very happy doing just that.

Congrats on the weight loss! I did a boot camp thing one time and nearly threw up. As Betsy said, walking is very good exercise and not so taxing on the body. Keep it up! You're doing great!
