Today went well, this morning I only did the elliptical and the exercise bike when I was at the gym. I went back this afternoon and finished two miles on the treadmill. The gym was fairly busy and I've always been very intimidated by "the pretty people" all muscled and preppy and yes they were there, but I just pushed through it. I've got to eventually feel like they don't bug me, but when you've grown up being overweight, those people always seem to look down on you because you're not as attractive or as thin as them. I can honestly say that I didn't feel like anyone was looking at me or really cared that I was there and in fact there were several people there larger than I was. If they can feel comfortable there, then so can I.

I think for a few weeks anyways, I am going to go to the gym after work and just push through those insecurities and deal with it. I think it would be healthy for me to get rid of those old feelings since I'm trying to transform into a whole new Seth.

wow.. see.. I look at your picture and think you are one of the pretty/ preppy people.. and some day I hope to be.. I am peppy.. but not so much the pretty..

Mondays always seem to be busy at the gym.. because people cheat on the weekend and have to make up for it..lol.. or so one would think..lol.. come Wednesday.. it dies down.. :P.. thats my GYM anyway..lol.. Friday nights. and Sundays are the days I like to go.. less people..

Keep it up .. your are amazing!!

I'm going to see how it goes this afternoon, just going to push through it. I have my iPod alrady to go and I can just zone out on music.

Thanks for the compliment btw, I think it's just years of not being considered one of those people that gives me that mindset. It is still so strange to hear anyone compliment me because outside of family members who do it to be nice, I never have heard much. It's not a vanity thing for me, it's just so foreign to me, lol. I have to wrap my mind around the new me and get used to it because I'm just not at all used to the attention that I get now.

Get used to it Seth! You will be getting lots of that! Yeah, same here. Not used to it. Not a vanity thing. Even when I was thin many moons ago, I just didn't get it. Always had mental issues with my weight. So, now trying to settle into accepting my body for what it is and accept compliments as well.

I'd go with the iPod and zoning out/ignoring the others unless they try to interact with you. Most probably do this also I'm guessing. Zoning one way or another. I hear ya on the "fitting in" thing! I think either they will accept you (some may surprise you) or they are just too wrapped up in their own issues. Just get those muscles rocking, and you can socialize out of the gym!

Have a great day hun!

Major progress! I went to the gym after work, did my who workout, couldn't have cared less that the place was full up. In fact, it mostly cleared out while I was there. I was able to watch Netflix on my iPod so I had a blast! It was really a good step in the right direction for me. I am glad I made myself do it!

Heard from her today, guess she's good.

Another good workout at the gym, today it is so hot outside so the gym was fairly uncrowded, which was fine by me. Netflix did not want to work with my iPod, but I managed to push through without it.

Hi Seth.

Glad she is okay.

I love when the gym is empty. More time to explore equipment. Good job on pushing through your workout. Keep up the good work, buddy!

Have a good one.

Sometimes the Netflix works and sometimes it doesn't. It really does help the workout though to zone out on a movie or tv show and not even think about the hard work you're putting in.

Definatly tired this afternoon, I did weights and I can really feel it in my arms.

Hiya Seth! Happy Friday! I have Netflix on my iPod touch and love the convenience of being able to watch movies, etc while on the train. Glad you were able to start lifting weights. Good job. Keep up the good work, and have a great weekend!

I am good, just been a little under the weather the past two days. I got up around noon today and went to the gym just so I wasn't completely lazy and then came back home and went back to bed. Sleep always makes me feel better when I'm sick and I hope it's the same thing this time.

Work and gym done for the day. I really hope to get a better nights rest tonight. I moved into a different room of the house and I'm having the hardest time getting used to it.
