I started Balance because I wanted to get in shape for my wedding and I couldn't find classes that I wanted to take at a time when I could actually take them. Of course there is more behind my decision, but basically, that is how the ball got rolling.
Like many women, I wanted to look good in my wedding dress, on my wedding day, in my wedding pictures! Now that fitness is my job, this hope better materialize :) (I get the pictures back in a couple weeks so fingers crossed!) Believe it or not, I have not lost a pound or an inch since opening the studio almost six months ago. WHAT?!?! I know you are shocked, but here is the deal - I am okay with it. (Kinda!) I would love to look like those slim fitness models, but I also love to drink wine with my friends and eat mashed potatoes when I want. Don't get me wrong, I think I look more toned and all that positive stuff that comes with working out several hours a day, but I also still look like me and I love that, too!
The moral of my little story is this: If you have a goal that you are working towards - don't focus on the numbers! Focus on how you feel! Exercising offers more benefits than just losing weight so if the numbers aren't shrinking, don't worry! You will feel happier and be healthier and that is the most important!
