Ht. 5'6", Start: 225 lb, Today: 225 lb (BMI %tile: 98), Goal: 180 lb - Hi you guys......Today i decided that i'm tired of being as big as i am, and so i have decided to go to the gym. The problem is that i don't like going to the gym because i feel that its only skinny people that go there, and i feel like they are going to stare at me and just look at me weird, or think that they are better than me because they are thin.
I have not been able to loose weight because i'm so scared of what others might think when they see me walking my dogs, or doing excersise at the gym. I am just not confident, and i need help. And it gets me so frustrated that i think this way.
can anyone give me some advice?!?!!

Honestly, I see more overweight people at the gym than I do thin, ripped people. Everyone wants to better themselves and I promise you people aren't going to be like "WTF IS SHE DOING HERE?!" I thought like that too, but everyone there is there for THEMSELVES. Focus on you, not what they're thinking.
Good luck! :D
