Do I have one of those faces !

I have another post have drafted but wanted to post this quickly. . Was at the gym last night, and hadn't been for 4 days as I had family staying with me. Was tired and cranky (because TOM due tomorrow) and mother driving me mental (god love her, that is her job !!) and a trainer chatted to me. Now this is the 2nd one that has befriended me, is it because I am large? or just have one of those faces. She tried to convince me to go to the bodyjam class. What was good was I had 8 minutes chat to her about mine, and others, fear of classes -she said there is always someone else that feels that way. Apparently next week is some new routine etc and no one will know it I made promise to her that I would go. The thought terrifies me but I think it will be good for me and a change of routine. It is good to face our fears. WI tomorrow so with TOM due I am not feeling positive, probably because I am going mad with PMS symptoms, don't you just love being a girl. My niece arrives tomorrow to spend the weekend with me. Looking forward to it and will sit down and plan what I am eating (as we will be out eating a lot). She does need to lose weight but I want her to realise that being overweight does not define you as a person, you are after all more than a body. As a person that had a mother that hounded me about my weight, I don't want her to go through this, after all we all know that losing weight is about mindset - not what others want us to do, although I know I need to lost a lot of weight, saying that doesn't make it a natural thing to do, I am doing well because my headset is right, but if it wasn't then I would struggle . She is a fantastic 14 year old and I always reinforce that I love her for her.

Martine I am the most uncoordinated person in the world, but a friend of mine has convinced me to go to body jam as it is so much fun. She assures me that there are other unco people there and it will just be a laugh. I'm feeling that I really need to vary my exercise, so I'm going to give it a go next week. Maybe you should try it too and then we can compare notes?? Hope you enjoy your niece's visit.

I would say that you look very approachable.

I tried body jam when I was allowed to go to the gym. Totally uncoordinated but I had a ball trying

I too struggle with coordination. At least in the choreographed movement realm. Sports weren't a problem, but if the dance class repeated something 12 X's I still wouldn't have gotten it. Good for you!

So girls the verdict is in - I am doing it and so is LellyJ ! Report in next week.
