I joined Shapes right after I turned 40 because I wanted to make a change in my waistline and my lifestyle. My husband had been deployed for almost a year and came back the day before, and I vowed that I would stick with a routine until I got results.
That was months ago. I haven’t been there since last November.
Here’s the weird thing: a month into the regular trips to the gym, I had a weigh-in and body measure. According to their stats (and I had 3 different people do them, just to be sure, over a 2-week period), I had actually gained weight, gained inches, and become overall just a larger person.
I was SO not happy with this.
So I lost my excitement and enthusiasm. I changed my diet a little, but I pretty much stopped working out. And for some strange, unfathomable reason, I lost weight. No idea how that works out.
I have to decide whether I’m going to renew my gym membership and try something different or just let it expire. It’s a tough one. I’m not really sure what to do. Shapes has called a few times, asking when I’m coming back. I avoid the phone.
What do you think?
