more weight loss woes-why I don't/can't go gymming.

Some genuine reasons I can't/don't/won't go gymming :

1.I am spoilt silly for the choice of gyms in my area ; Small-spacious,personal-pro,page3-nondescript,friendly-snooty,nextdoor-not-so-close,with pool-without pool etc.confusion prevails...whichever you choose,the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.
2.Hey , the monsoons is not the season for gymming in Mumbai!
3.I just recovered from my umpteenth attack of ' catch in the back' (slipped intervertebral disk)
4.The last gym I  joined had obese auny types always discussing food.if they couldn't loose weight,how could I ??
Nah! not MOTI-vating enough..
5.Previous to this, the page3 gym had ,no prizes for guessing-page 3 super thin crowd.No one looked like they required the  gym for gymming ,(socialising oh yes!)
Nope,not dependable/believable..
6.Bingo! personal trainer it is- I decided.He came ,he saw,he ordered.Buy treadmill,buy stepper,buy gym ball,resistance band,weights ( they don't sell will power yet do they?)Few days all goes well and then it starts..he chooses to come when you are going out,have guests,fever,homework(kids' or yours ,same thing) or are out of station, inviting sad comments that you are not serious(I know that dear ,that's why I am paying you)
the trainer starts getting delayed regurarly,at some other client's place,has some mr something contest,marathon training,if nothing else,even Mumbai traffic delays him.
Not done..waste of time and money..
6.Hmm the next  gym that caught my fancy came with a price tag as it had mixed bag routine with a Hitler for a trainer.Goood!Very first day and i saw stars! c'mon ,move it she yelled! where??I wondered. The room was spinning (or was it me?).Next thing I saw was hubby at the gate with the worst 'I -told-you-so' looks laced with sympathy..
Determined I made it next day  and was welcomed with an applause.It was better this time but by the end of the routine,I felt illiterate.The instructions she was giving and others were following were definitely not in english for if it was so ,I would follow some thing..if not everything.Shuffle-shuffle- I was thinking cards they were thinking feet.. and moving them also.It was so alien, I must have looked like an idiot flaying my arms and legs in the air, actually nowhere!
I managed to learn the language, lost some weight, felt fit and then the calamity struck as always,you guessed it right ,'catch in the back'.
Untill my next with some yoga woes!...

weight loss woes and laws!

1.Weighing scale moves only in one direction,to your right!(wrong for the person standing on it)
2.All surprise party invitations land up the day you decide to go on a diet.
3.You get PMS/periods the day you decide to go on a diet so you can blame your excess weight on water retention!
4.Your best friend,your husbands best friend,closest relatives ,conspire to get married during your diet period.
5.Someone decides to be nice to you and comments that you look slimmer, shattering your resolve to go on a diet.
6.Your son, fresh from the baking class surprises you by baking the yummiest cake the day you decide to go on a diet.(of course, you can't break his heart.)
7.You find an old dress that fits you perfectly making you believe that you actually have lost weight(you forget the fact that it was one of those maternity tents from your last pregnancy)
8.You exhaust all stock of fresh fruit,veggies,dalia,oats, in short everything healthy,the day you get up early with the resolve to go on a diet.
You are rendered 'helpless'by all house helps the day you decide to go on a diet so you have to cook'fast food',(pun intended)lack of time you see!
