And I've surprised myself. I have enjoyed going to the gym. I started off just pootling around, mainly. Then I started doing Pilates and yoga classes. Of course, just when I started getting the hang of them, the gym changed the timetable and I couldn't make it to those classes anymore. So I started doing other classes. Spin, pump, step and combat. Each one has been challenging.
But when I look in the mirror, or try on the clothes I haven't been able to fit into for years, there isn't a big difference. Stepping on the scale, I don't see smaller numbers. I've been working out for 2 years, up to 5 days a week, and still am not noticeably thinner.
Last night though, I realized the differences are there. I'm much more muscular that I was. I have triceps you can see! When I squat, there are real muscles in my thighs. The changes are small, but they are there.
It's like anything. You get results by keeping at it. If you give up because you feel like you're failing, then you're not giving yourself a chance to get better at it.
What have you given up too soon? What did you stick at long enough to see results?
