    My First Year's University Gym Experience

    No one needs to see my fat jiggle when I exercise. That's not fun especially at a gym with a lot of fit people in it. I'm not exagerating, I go to the university's gym and there's only fit people there. I thought there must be something wrong with my vision, so I brought in some...

    Dying To Stop Dying

    Not every story about weight loss begins with a traumatic and eye-opening event that makes a person go on a heroic journey to a better self.  Mine is quite the opposite of that in fact.  My journey began years ago.  I would say it truly began the summer before my freshman year...

    It's Distracting

    I become too concious about my posture etc. I get distracted from just doing the excercise. This tells me I still have some issues with shyness and/or bad self-image.

    I'm naturally an anxious person, so of course that manifests itself as social anxiety as well. My great dislike for people watching me exercise has a big thing to do with why I don't go to the gym often. I sweat a lot. A lot a lot. It runs in my family from my dads side. This...

    My Personal Trainer Is Crazy!

    I really don't like people watching me exercise. Part of it is because I have this huge complex about doing something I don't do well in front of others. I'm a bit of a perfectionist in that respect because I will work on it over and over again until I get it, and then I'm...

    I won't work out around other people. I get too self-conscious and don't do things properly. I prefer working out alone.

    Please Stare At Someone Else

    Oh my god I hate it so much when people watch me exercise. Yeah I'm on a treadmill, and I'm not a size 0. I've started wearing sunglasses whenever I exercise. It probably looks stupid, but that way I can close my eyes and not drive myself crazy watching other people staring at me...
