SFX Member Testimonial- Lori Henry
I have been asked to tell my story. While that is an uncomfortable task for me, I hope that it will encourage others to begin and/or stay the course on their personal health journeys.
I have always been thin with the exception of a 60 pound weight gain during pregnancy. I watch what I eat and cut back on the calories whenever I have gained 5 to 10 pounds. So, what happened that changed my life in June of 2012? I read an article about being “skinny unhealthy” or “skinny fat”. As I read it, something clicked in my brain. They were talking about me. I was thin and I was not healthy. The next day I received an Amazon Local promotional deal for SFX and I decided to take them up on it.
Well, this was uncharted territory. I hadn’t been on the “gym scene” since the eighties and that brought back images of disco balls and velour sweat suits images that I would prefer to forget. I asked several of my friends to join me and I didn’t have a single taker! Actually, not only didn’t I have a taker but I also had numerous friends that chided me for my quest and, yes, some actually implied that it was an eating disorder issue. Please know that I have never even remotely had a weight and or image issue. So, I was on my own.
I went to SFX worried that I was too old and too unfit to fit in. While they made me feel welcomed, I still felt ucomfortable and cautious. Those feelings would soon melt away. My first couple of classes I thought I was going to throw up and was convinced that my heart was going to explode but I bribed myself to continue. “Just put your shoes and workout clothes on…just drive there…just give it 5 minutes and then you can leave.” I persevered, always managing to stick it out.
It has been a slow steady adventure. When I started my BMI was 34% it is now at 14% and I feel great, better than I have in years! I have taken nutritional and fitness direction from my personal trainer, Jill, even when I thought “I knew better”. She pushes me when I need pushing and just when I think that this whole exercise thing is getting easy breezy she switches it up again. Everyone asks me when I turned the corner from “making myself go to the gym” to “wanting to go to the gym”. I’m not sure exactly when that happened but I will say that a personal benchmark was in December, 6 months into my quest, when a retail sales associate described me as having an “athletic body”. The first time in my life!
