  • no, I love the gym. I started when I was much heavier and have lost a ton of weight. Never worry about anyone or anything and find what you enjoy. :)

  • I love the gym when I can get into a routine and actually go. I am basically the only female in the gym I go to ....the guys are super nice and very encouraging. I think more so than the woman only gym I went to for a while.

  • I've never really felt weird about the gym, but I've always been relatively comfortable in my own skin. That's not to say I'm some skinny Minnie- I was 269 when I started my weight loss journey, and I'm 215 now. But why be uncomfortable- I'm there for me, not for anyone else!

  • I did feel awkward, but after a few visits, I realized that everyone else was there for the same reason and were probably thinking the same thing I was.
