I am not good with pain. That is to say, I am a wuss with a low pain threshold and while I have tolerance for pain that is "happening" to me, causing myself pain is something I do not have any motivation for. I am currently about 110lbs overweight. Today I went to the gym. It was mortifying - basically. I explained to the gym instructor that I get pain and winded from even a couple of minutes brisk walk, so naturally she declared that we would "warm up with ten minutes on the treadmill". Ten minutes is beyond my limit for cardio, never mind a warm up. It hurts. And when it hurts I want to stop. Not only do I want to stop, but I find it very very hard to push myself past that want to stop. Exercise of any kind has always caused me pain. Right back to school physical education. It is why I don't do it. It is why I know get winded and red and wheezy from more than a couple of flights of stairs. I am not sure what I am asking for in terms of advice - maybe just looking for encouragement. Does anyone know how to convince yourself to inflict pain on yourself for an hour a day every day? Because I am not good at this.
