Attending classes was another source of extreme anxiety for me - I'm talking shortness of breath, excessive sweating, teary-eyed anxiety - so I always placed myself at the back, or against the wall, because I just felt safer there... hoping that nobody would see me, judge me, shoot me dirty looks, or the worst? Say something unkind that I could overhear.
The sad, but very true reality, is that people aren't nice to overweight people. They just aren't. It seems to be the last socially acceptable form of discrimination.
Anyways, you should hear me lately...all of the time saying "I've never done that before", "This is new", "That's weird", "There is a first time for everything."
And last week was yet another first. In an ongoing effort to curb my spending, maintain my activity level, and surround myself with people who support me; I quit Goodlife, and joined Fit 4 Less.
Remember the girl would wouldn't work out in the co-ed section!?!
I, yes! Me! went to the gym WITH a
But I like it.
Sometimes it freaks me out though, so I breathe deeply, practice being brave, and frigging do it anyways.
It is definitely better than hiding in the corner hoping to God that nobody sees me.
Doesn't make it any less weird though.
I hope that you are having an awesome day!
