Discouraged


Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Sometimes I feel like I don't know what the heck I'm doing. When I go to the gym I feel like I am not doing the right things. I went to the gym yesterday and was kicking my butt and then I heard a woman behind me talking to her girlfriend. She was saying "Look at the girl in front of us, she is so disgusting, I would never let myself get that big. She should just go home and stuff her face instead of wasting her time here." I felt so bad. I finished my work out and burst into tears once I got home. It makes me so angry that someone could be so discouraging and I hope no one else had to endure what I did. I will be going back tonight and the next and the next. No words can ever stop the motivation I have with in.

    Oh my goodness, what a terrible and rude thing for someone to say! A few months back I was out walking in my neighborhood (getting in some exercise!) and as I passed a group of teenage boys one of them remarked that I needed to "get some Slimfast." Once I got home I cried for hours. Those words hurt me incredibly at the time, but now I look back at it and I think "Who are those jerks to try to dictate how I should look?" People come in all shapes, sizes, colors, etc., and every one of them should be welcome to share in public spaces without rude remarks. Keep your head held high, and show them just how wrong they were to think that you should just give up on yourself!

    Let me tell you first of all, dry those eyes and don't let heifers like that discourage you. You continue going to the gym and do you. I would have stop and turned around and said something to her, because first of all she would not have expected it. Secondly, I would have gone to management and made a complaint about the bullying harassment that I felt by a member. I can tell you from experience myself a while back in the gym. I have been next to people who look physically fit, but they not, because I will do my thing and show them how a big girl and work it in the gym. When you doing all that talking; I personally feel that your not truly working out. So, I say to you keep your head up and be proud of yourself and don't worry about those around you. Stay in your zone and remember why you are there. You deserve to be in the gym. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    What a jerk!!! Unfortunately, there will always be people like that. I'm sorry. You can only do what you can to help yourself. Way to go in staying motivated and not giving up! You know, there are more people who are proud of you and your efforts than there are people like that. One day, maybe she'll grow up. If not, she'll go on being a miserable excuse for a human being and you'll be awesome! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    What a nasty thing to say. Ignore them. You're not home stuffing your face, you're working on getting healthy. Hold your head high and hit the gym!

    That is awful that you had to go to that. I would ignore them you are doing healthy things to improve on yourself. So I wouldn't let their ignorance bring you down. Keep up the good work.

Sad that they do not see you are there to improve your health and get fit!
