Gym... [Apr. 21st, 2004|08:33 am]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |goodgood]

Had a really good session at the gym last night [details]

This was the first session on our new fitness programme.

I felt really good after the session, but I nearly killed myself during the rowing. I hate that machine with a passion.

Oh well, might go swimming tonight! :o)

I've been a bit wary of going swimming because my body isn't exactly what I would call inspiring. It is for this reason also that I've been showering at home, and not at the gym after each session. Having fully open showers at the Leisure Centre doesn't really inspire confidence.

One day...

I was exactly the same with the showers.

This time I joined the classes I decided to sod it, I have the same bitsas everyone else and I'm there to lose the weight, it's not like I'm just flaunting a fat body at them for no reason.

You're no different to anyone else, and I've found it's only me that's bothered about it. No one else cares and they dont stare either. It's just a matter of feeling comfortable with yourself.

It takes time. I've had numerous opportunities before now to use communal changing rooms and like you, I've gone home to shower. I just make sure I wrap a towel around the bits that I dont want people to see!!

When I used to go to the gym with Catherine, I surprised myself by being quite happy to wander around naked in the changing rooms, even in front of strange women. And I was 2 stone fatter then!
