Okay--so I have started to notice some changes to my body physically, but I am even starting to notice some mental/attitude changes as well. I have noticed that I am carrying myself differently than I have. I'm not looking at the ground all the time when I walk anymore, I'm carrying myself more upright than usual. I also walked into LA Boxing for class today, and though a bit freaked out because I didn't know what was going to happen, I wasn't self conscious at all. I didn't feel out of place, nor did I care what the folks around me looked like. The fact is, I have come to realize that while I may be the biggest girl in the gym right now, if I keep coming, that won't last long. I will eventually be in shape, and may be able to help others who are intimidated when they walk through the door. I've never been a person with a ton of self confidence, but I will say that my self confidence is growing with every day at the gym. I am enjoying working out, and even enjoying being sore in the evenings. I just KNOW that being sore means I worked hard that day, and that it will pay off! It will pay off physically, mentally and on the scale!
