Treadmills are scary.
There are buttons on a treadmill that you have to push. The treadmill track can go very fast, and hurl you though the drywall behind you. If you don’t know how to use a treadmill, you have to ask someone to help you. You will have to admit you do not know something. You may look foolish.
I don’t like treadmills.
I like walking. But it is dark and cold in the morning at 5:00 when I want to walk.
Planet Fitness is only a three-minute drive from my house. The fee is only $10.00 a month.
I wanted to join. But I didn’t want to walk across the parking lot alone. My nineteen friends walked across the parking lot with me. My nineteen on-line friends in the Stay Away from the Diet! Facebook group.
My friend Sundi Jo lost 145 pounds. She wrote a book , Step Away from that Diet: Ten Steps To Losing Weight and Gaining the Confidence You’ve Been Searching For. She offers the book for free when you subscribe to her blog, SundiJo.com. Sundi Jo started the facebook group to provide accountability and friendship. Anyone is welcome to join the group, you just have to ask Sundi to add you.
I stood on the treadmill today. I risked looking foolish, and asked an employee to show how to use the buttons. I didn’t get throw off of the machine into the drywall behind me.
I walked as fast as I could for twenty minutes.
Tomorrow I will go back to the gym. My friends are walking with me again.
Thank you Sundi Jo.
