need motivation

emoticon I haven't been working out like I should been because I am getting discouraged because I am not seeing any results like I thought I would. I feel like I have gained back what little weight I have lost and everyone who said they would work out with either got a job or the other friend got hurt at Big Lots. She fell and not she is having to go through therapy because of it. I feel very sorry for her because she was getting to where I think she was enjoying working out with me. I don't like going down to our gym by myself because I have had bad experiences at the gym when I was by myself and I don't want that to happen again. This guy kept watching and staring at me in a very strange way and it gave me a very uneasy feeling. I have started back going to my gym today by myself and I was the only one in the gym, but I am always looking over my shoulder every time I hear a door slam or open. I know I am being paranoid but I can't help it. But If I am to lose weight, I guess I will have to get over my fears and stuck it up and do it. If I had room in my house for the machines I work on down at the gym I would have them in my house and then I could do it every time I wanted and not be worried if something will happen. Do you think I'm wrong to feel this way or am I acting normal? Sometimes I feel silly for the way I feel. Everybody is telling me that it is something I am going to have to deal with and just do it and get it over with. I guess they are right but it's hard. Well thanks for listening. Have a great day! emoticon

    Thanks for your response startingallover I have had two ladies that were working out with and I was feeling better but now both of them are either working in the morning and the other fell and hurt herself really bad. I try to go in the morning when I know there isn't anyone there. There is this one guy that I talk to when I'm down at the gym when we are there at the same time and I feel okay when he is in there with me. Thanks for the advice also. Have a great day! emoticon

    You are always right to trust your instincts - its what keeps us safe I think.. letting fear take over though is another matter. Does your gym have a time of day for just women? If not maybe they have a "buddy program" that you can pair up with another female and go together. Even noticing when it is busier there might help..even if the extra people are there you may feel more at ease because there is alway safety in numbers. And if you see someone staring and making you uncomfortable let the gym owners or manager know (confidentially of course) - they will keep an eye on that person...
    Dont let your health and fitness suffer because some people are just plain rude. (They dont even realize they are staring half the time.)
    Your feelings are valid.. but you will feel stronger about it if you find a solution!!
    Good luck!
