Me intimidated by a chunk of steel?? Sadly, yes.

I remember back in the late 80s looking at pictures of female bodybuilders with my sister and both of us saying how beautiful we thought they were and how much we would love to look like them!
Fast forward 20 years and I have several books related to weight training, some specifically for women and some general in nature, I have a gym membership, I buy Oxygen magazine and marvel over the beautiful bodies, BUT I can't find the will to start.
I know I'm afraid to go to the gym by myself and workout alone or look like a dork using the machines. But I wish I wasn't and I have to find a way to get past that. Has anyone else been in a similar position? What did you do to by-pass this silly fear?? I don't have the $ for a trainer, so that's not an option for me. And I don't know anyone who is interested in the same sort of training.
