Time to update my intro information again, since I just had another birthday. I'm 34 now. Not much else has changed, though. Quick info about me:

34, married to my husband of 13 1/2 years. No children, but a lovey cat named Beto and a little precious dog named Ginger. We live in Columbus, Ohio.

One of my biggest health struggles is being a Type 2 Diabetic. It is not well controlled right now, but I'm working on it diligently. It's more than a full time job some ...
Time to update my intro information again, since I just had another birthday. I'm 34 now. Not much else has changed, though. Quick info about me:

34, married to my husband of 13 1/2 years. No children, but a lovey cat named Beto and a little precious dog named Ginger. We live in Columbus, Ohio.

One of my biggest health struggles is being a Type 2 Diabetic. It is not well controlled right now, but I'm working on it diligently. It's more than a full time job some days. Slow and steady wins the race, though.

My other big health challenge is, obviously, my weight. As of this morning {6/13/14}, I weigh 268.2 by my home scale. That's down 23 lbs from my all time highest weight of 291. I've been stuck in pretty much the same weight range for a couple years, but I'm ready and motivated to get the scale going the right way.

I think that covers the basics about me. If anyone has any questions, just ask!

Thanks! I've always enjoyed strength training. There's a very real sense of personal satisfaction of being able to pick up heavy things. You just have to constantly keep yourself out of your comfort zone. ST is definitely one of those things that builds up quickly. And I'd totally bet you could lift more than you think you can. I definitely surprised myself today!

You might want to check with your gym to see if they offer discounts or complimentary sessions. Sometimes they do, but they don't advertise it. Worse comes to worst, you're not out anything :)

I think you'd really enjoy getting a plan from a Personal Trainer. Usually they're pretty good about listening to your limitations and giving you ideas of things you can do. The first time I met up with a trainer, he was a 60+ body builder (I didn't even know they HAD senior body building competiitions!), so he had plenty of experience with the different types of equipment. I told him that I have a bad back (have since I was 8) and he gave me some ideas for different ways to strengthen my core so my back wouldn't hurt so much.
On the "scary" note, maybe they just get shy?
