Like "Joyce, The gym I joined is owned by my employer who promotes healthy lifestyles. It is not very large & it caters to alot of the elderly as well. A good place that I will be very comfortable at. We have a program that assists us on eating right, moving more, etc. Its a great thing that I have not utilized enough. I'm so sorry that gym was not very compassionate but you are better off without them bringing you down. There a lot of free ways to exercise that I will be doing after the deep freeze thaws here such as walking the wonderful trails we have with my kids! Riding bikes, etc. Motivating myself has never been a strong suit so this is new for me. I have very supportive people in my life and I'm tired of being what I have always been. So it's a new day, to quote Jennifer Hudson, and a better me! Good luck!!! "
