Well, you know, I am a big girl. Emotionally and physically. I applied to a local "Biggest Loser" type of contest, because, well, I am huge. The "powers that be" must have agreed, because they called me for a final interview. I was in the running for the prize, they narrowed it down to 5 people at each location and were going to pick 3 people per gym. They wanted to meet each of us before choosing and said they would call and let me know either way.
What was the prize? Well, a year's gym membership complete with weekly personal training. This is indeed a prize for a big girl like me. I wanted it, and I didn't get it, but the worst part is that I had to find out by reading the Explorer Newspaper and looking online. I mean I get it. I am less of a person because I am huge, under-confident and shy, so why follow up. (I get that I am being a bit reactionary and silly.)
I told myself, that whether I got this opportunity or not, I would join the gym, and I was going to join at Anytime Fitness, and I also told myself I would start this blog. SO... The blog exists now. However, in this disappointed place I find myself now, I have decided to check out my options regarding which gym I will join. (They said they would call either way. Call me old fashioned, call me a sore loser, but it would have been nice to have gotten a phone call with the bad news.)
I named the blog, Just you wait Henry Higgins, just you wait, but it should be just you wait Anytime Fitness, just you wait. (Because I will show you!)
The truth is, I don't know if I can do it.
I want to lose 90 pounds in the year 2012. But I have a lot against me. My history with weight being number one.
So, I invite whomever would like to, to join me on this trek. Should be fun. I will be checking out gyms in the Oro Valley area and reviewing them during the conclusion of 2011 and joining one of them in 2012.
Wish me luck!
