Surrounding Myself More

I am lucky enough to belong to a gym that allows outside sources to come in and hold classes.  I belong to Snap Fitness and there is a Weight Loss Support Group every Monday morning at 8:30.    This works out perfectly because it is right after my Ab Class.  The local hospital has an Community Outreach Program which allows for a liaison to come in and lead us in discussions on health and weight loss.  You don't even have to belong to the gym to take advantage of this!  We have had blood screenings, we have had a dietician come in to speak with us, and as many of us are over 50, so there have been topics on menopause and our changing hormones and metabolism.  There is always something I learn while I am there.  In my personal life, I have so many people who support me.  My family, my Facebook and Blogger friends, my one friend who lives far away who sends me support and motivational quotes all the time.  I am surrounded by support.  Now, I am getting even more.  It is such an amazing feeling to be in a room full of like minded women who motivate you and lift you up.  We feed off of each other and help each other.  I am motivated and refocused each time I leave, and that is a great feeling.  If you don't have a support group in your life, I urge you to either start one, or find one.  (Local people, mine is open to anyone 😊.)  It does wonders for your self esteem.  Plus you make new friends and there is always more than enough coffee :)

Have a wonderful day!

xoxo

  2. That is so awesome you have so many people you can turn to for support. I think the church behind my house offers free support too. I know they offer free fitness classes for anyone in the community M-F mornings, but I haven't attended any yet. I am Facebook friends with some of the gals from my Zumba class, so that's always a great source of support outside of the class, especially since they are all like minded when it comes to fitness.

  6. I wish my gym had something like that! It's a great idea, not only offering a place to work out but making sure you get support in other areas of health and weight loss too.

  7. That sounds like a GREAT group! I know I went to weight watchers meetings mostly for the support and encouragement from the other attendees!
