    Uncomfortableee...

    I tend to wheeze and grunt and breathe funny, so I don't like it when people watch me, especially since I do it wrong a lot of times :P

    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...

    Anxiety

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Is It Weird?

    I hate it when people who are thinner than me watch me workout it's uncomfortable and I feel like i'm doing it wrong. I feel like they are judging me in their mind and I hate it. I hate how they can work out for hours and I can't do 5 minutes without feeling like i'm going to die...

    I Hate It When People Stare

    Wow! I seriously thought that I was the only one in the world who gets stared at at the gym.  Man, was I wrong!I absolutely hate it when people stare at me!  I don't know why.  I just do.  One of my friend's recently told me that when someone stares at her, she stares right...

    Weird

    It makes me uncomfortable although it pressures me to do better since people are watching me. But still it's a bit creepy and it feels weird.

    No Gyms

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

    Another advantage when I exercise alone is

    that I can also be focused on my thoughts without thinking about the people around me.

    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...

    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.
