Rats, he's still on the treadmill!
I'd been waiting and waiting for the treadmill while away from home at a hotel this past weekend. Never mind the fact that yesterday I was on the treadmill for over an hour and somebody was waiting for ME! :-)
Anyhow, he finally wraps up his run on the treadmill and this shorter, but muscular, not obese fellow is so TOTALLY sopping wet with sweat! I thought I was bad...! The treadmill was COVERED with sweat as well as the mirror than ran along the wall beside the treadmill. Not that I minded as I knew I was about to add my pints of sweat to the mix...lol. He was kind enough to swab it up with his towel.
This got me thinking about my attitude toward sweat and obesity. To me it has always seemed to me that my sweating was a form of broadcasting my obesity and I have always felt self-conscious about it. Even after having lost the weight I've lost I still sweat easily and profusely with minimal exertion. BUT: here was an average-weight, average-build person sweating even MORE than MOI!
So it's not just a "fat" thing...it's a BODY thing...some folks sweat more than others, no big deal!
