Yeah, DQ, it's on everyone's own time... You can't just force yourself into it, it has to be your decision, not because of social pressure or pressure from family/friends or wanting the attention for it, it has to be because you, all you, 100% want to change your life around and are sick of how you look/feel. Perhaps you are happy the way you are?? Or maybe years from now you'll have the same realization? You have to wait for it to come along, because if you force yourself, you'll gain it alllll back.
Thanks, Vay!!! I'm excited! My guy is super into working out and trains in MMA at a local gym with top UFC fighters, and I love hanging out there watching him and talking to everyone, but I figure it's about time I actually work out and enjoy the social aspect, not just sitting down at a table, ha ha! It's not going to be a big lifestyle change at all, so I have confidence! For my man, in about 3 months he almost has a six pack, o_0 If it's really that quick, well, I'll have no problem at all!! Even his mom is all, "What happened to your thighs?!" and now we're betting on if he'll be bigger than his dad, hehehe! (They're Hawaiian aka "Pacific Islander" and his father is HUGE!)
I'm excited, though, because I like the MMA stuff, too, but when I practice with him he always gets me in the first 2 minutes, when a couple years ago I could fight with him forever it felt like. Obviously he takes it easy on me, but it's sad that even with him taking it easy on me, I'm still a little girl about it... >.< So that was a huge motivation for me, too.
I had the wake up call, realizing my whole life was literally changing because of this, and I didn't want to continue down this path and become "fat & lazy". So I felt a strong need to change immediately before it was a habit and I was set in my ways for a long time..
