Tonight was the first group meeting for the Extreme Health Makeover. I met the other participants, had my Body Mass Index and Body Fat Percentage measured, took waist and hip measurements, had before pictures taken, and recorded a short video introducing myself. Oh, and they took my blood pressure – after they measured my BMI and body fat. It was a little high. Go figure.
I had to get over my initial reaction, which was, “I’m the biggest person here.” They were all very friendly, though, all happy to be chosen and eager to get started.
I also scheduled my weekly appointments with my personal trainer, Kimberly. I will meet with her once a week to turn in my food diary, report my weight, adjust my calorie intake level if needed, and do weight training. Four more days of the week, I will go to the gym on my own, doing weight training and cardio.
And so it begins.
