Here we go again for the ump-teenth time.

Monday, March 09, 2009

So I fell off the wagon again. My friend that was working out with me stopped going to the gym with me due to family problems. And now I just can't seem to find the motivation to go. I know I need to go and I want to go but hate going by myself. The gym that I belong to is all about looks and money. They could care less about making going to the gym a positive experience. They don't like to help you unless you're already in good shape or paying them to do it. Even if you pay them their attitude sucks. Every time I go in I feel like they are judging me. I work there in the daycare and they act like I'm not good enough to work there. I feel bad enough as it is working at a gym and being overweight.
I'm going to force myself to go tomorrow morning even if I have to go alone. I need to go and get over the whole thing. I know I have to stop worrying about what other people think about me and worry about myself. It's so hard when you've been judged your whole life by everyone, including parents, but I have to figure out a way to get over it.
I know what I have to do, I'm just struggling to do it. emoticon

    Don't give so much of your POWER over to other people who mean nothing. When you are sick from some illness that is do to obesity, THEY will not care. I'm not saying this to be mean, but just to let you know that you have to think about YOU. I'm 59 and OLD, but I go to the gym and I don't care what the young people think. I just go anyway. emoticon

    You can do this!! I know it's hard . . . if you really don't like going to the gym are there other kinds of exercises you think you might enjoy? Maybe something at home? Walking outside? Dancing? There are lots of other alternatives and you should do something you are going to enjoy. There is nothing worse than forcing ourselves to do something we don't like to do.

    Be creative in your exercise choices! The gym is not the only option!!

    Good luck and keep check in often.

    You can do it, and I am right with you, I went to Weight Watchers finally today and had to rejoin again, it has been soooooo long. But Hey, I went. Don't let others judge you, when I start to worry about what others think I just think to myself "I could be at home on the couch eating oreos, then what would they think". At least you are there and that is a lot better than a lot of people. They can judge you, but there is always worse out there, trust me. Get There!!! I will be waiting to see if you went in the morning. I am going to an exercise class tonight. See less of you tomorrow.
