Suzy, I really liked your post. It sounds so much like my experience. I had never been to a gym before I joined this one. I'm seriously non-athletic, and was a bit self-conscious about my flat chest (bilat mastectomy, no recon) and weak muscles. I got bronchitis right after joining and it lasted such a long time, I could barely do anything (10 minutes on a treadmill made me spend the rest of the day in bed). But now, like you, I go regularly. As I gain strength and endurance, it makes me feel really good about myself. I like the sense of accomplishment, however small that was at first. And I began to notice that I had fewer depressed days, and more energy in general. It didn't happen instantly. It sort of crept up on me.
Yes, Nan, if we can do it, you can do it!
