“Don't fall off that treadmill.”text-autospace:none">These are words I hear often, as I get dangerously close to being ejected from the treadmill. text-autospace:none">I used to think I liked the treadmill. That was before I learned you could change the incline to eight and walk at 4 mph. I despise that horrible machine. I am having problems with my knees and it has become very difficult to walk, let alone run on the treadmill. However, I continue hoping I will be able to exercise through the pain and pressure on my knees text-autospace:none">I gained a few pounds and I was so disgusted with myself that I started crying in front of my personal trainer, Ken Cutcher of Anytime Fitness, when I saw the numbers on the scale. I did lose inches, but those numbers on the scale get me. text-autospace:none">I meet with Ken on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On Tuesday and Saturdays, I'm on my own. I usually do about 30 minutes of cardio. Thursdays and Sundays are my free days. text-autospace:none">I have started to come to terms with the numbers on the scale. I'm not trying to impress anyone and as long as I am healthy and continuing to exercise with Ken and staying active then I know weight loss will occur. text-autospace:none">I learned I was not eating as well as I thought. We have started to work on that, too. I am happy with the direction things are going and I have accepted my failures and shortcomings thus far.
