I have always wanted to join a gym, but, due to finances, and being very shy, I never did. Well, since my stroke, my legs, feet, hands, and arms, have gotten very weak. Also, I have gone from being anorexic, to being fat again. I weigh 164 pounds right now, I am only five feet tall, so I am huge. I am so ashamed of myself for looking like this. At my biggest weight, I weighed 258 pounds. I refuse to go there again, or anywhere closer to 200!! We were at a store the other day, a man offered us a great deal on a family portrait. We could get a 10x13, 5x7, several wallet size pictures, all for just $16.00. I looked at him as if he were crazy. I said, sir look at me. I have no hair, I am huge, I am ugly. I would probably break the camera. He grinned at me, and said, we have been needing a new camera anyway. I am in need of a major overhaul!! Yesterday, I called the rehab hospital where I stayed when I had my stroke. They have a wonderful fitness center there. You can join the entire center, which includes use of the three pools and whirlpool, track, and exercise equipment. Or, you can just join the aquatic center, which includes use of all three pools, the whirlpool, and the track. When I was a patient there, I loved using the pools, and track. They offer all type of aquatic classes, included with your aquatic membership. I really want to join the aquatic center, I think it would be great for my legs, feet, hands, and arms. Also, could be with some people that have experienced a stroke. Some of the classes sound so much fun. Zumba water classes, aerobic water classes, water volleyball, ect. Woo Hoo!! Eddie is thinking about it, will let me know soon. Please pray that this will work out for me, it is something I really want to do. The man told me it would cost me $25.00 a month. Also, I am so tired of wearing bandannas on my head, but, I need something to cover my baldness. Anyone know of where I could get some caps like cancer victims, or the Amish wear? Appreciate you listening to me, and praying for me. I love you all.
