Why Why Why? We all ask our selves this question... for me I get lost in the question while searching for an answer. Truth is the answers are always there in front of me... I think I am just to afraid to see them. Exercise and eating right....hmmmmm rocket science right? The reason it is so hard for me to keep losing weight or even maintaining is because I am a creature of habit...person of comfort... bottom line I am lazy... mentally mostly...ok physically too! Truth is you can not have one with out the other. I get that...hence the title....WHY does it have to be so hard? My conclusion is we learn from our hard work and devotion, how much we learn is up to us... I have learned a great deal... I know if I stop exercising and eating right I gain weight back...(was down to 260...back up to 275) I know I use break time to relax and eat....haha... busy life... stress...tired...frustration... I use anything to stop myself from continuing at times....again...WHY? Fear is mostly why I stop...fear of dealing with everything I hide inside this fat suit... It is time to STOP ASKING WHY??? IT IS TIME TO MAKE CHANGES AND MOVE FORWARD... It is up to me to get started again... the hardest part about starting over is the guilt...if only I had stuck to it I could be at this weight by now....ARRRRG! Time to stop doing that and just DO IT! Time to stop feeling Embarassed about my body and worrying about how I look to others... How I look is not who I am...

"You are at a crossroads. This is your opportunity to make the most important decision you will ever make. FORGET YOUR PAST. Who are you now? Who have you decided you really are now? Don't think about who you have been. Who are you now? Who have you decided to become? Make this decision consciously. Make it carefully. Make it powerfully."
-Anthony Robbins

    Hey man, glad to see you've taken the next step and joined a local gym. As for tips about how to feel a bit more comfortable. Well it's interesting you bring that up because for Christmas I joined a gym for a week to work out during the break and here is what I found.Hey man, glad to see you've taken the next step and joined a local gym. As for tips about how to feel a bit more comfortable. Well it's interesting you bring that up because for Christmas I joined a gym for a week to work out during the break and here is what I found.

    It really does seem as if everyone is watching you when you join a new place. One thing i'd try is to show up at a non-busy time if you can for the first week to get used to the new machines and in general the gym itself. Other than that the biggest thing is just forcing yourself to go for the first week or two because at first it's pretty intimidating and uncomfortable but rest assured that after some time there you'll start to feel very comfortable and that intimidation factor will go away.

    I know for me, when I went home for Christmas, after about a week I already was starting to feel at home in the gym and not nearly nervous, like everyone was watching me or anything. So it doesn't take long. The key is just to focus on continuing to go and not letting that feeling overwhelm you. Good luck!
