Ok maybe I'm being paranoid...

Thursday, July 12, 2012

but the woman in the gym was staring at me! Not obviously, but she kept sneaking little glances at me.

It made me uncomfortable.

It made me wonder why I was running on a treadmill at the gym when I'm 220lbs.

Why did she keep looking at me?! She was on the treadmill next to me and she'd look at me, run a bit then slow down to a walk and look at me again and repeat.

I was very aware of her trying not to stare and failing!

It made me wonder if she was staring because she was impressed that I was running for 5 mins, walking for 3 over and over.

I hope it was the last one. I don't like people watching me exercise which is ridiculous because if anyone needs to be in the gym it's me! I have a massive amount of weight to lose and people sneaking little glances at me shouldn't put me off but it does.

I'm hoping the gym will be empty when I go tomorrow.

Fingers crossed!

Food has been god awful this week but it's been 5 weeks of me exercising for 6 30 minute periods a week (at least) and I'm feeling pretty good about that.

On the downside I tried a dress on that fit me this time last year and is now too small. not good :(

Next week? DETOX!!!

    Keep focused on your task at hand... afterall, how do you know she was looking at you, unless you were looking at her too!?

    Perhaps the 2 of you are to meet to achieve something together as a team? Perhaps you can encourage each other.

    There are so many positives that can come out of this situation if you allow them to unfold.

    Sounds like she was thinking that if you could do it so could she. Maybe you are the encouragement she needs.

    She probably would like to grow up with your courage and determination! I don't like to be watched either - but it is usually more positive than negative attention! God bless your success on this journey we all share.
