I probably weight as much as you and I'd really like to start going to a gym. i run and I'm relatively healthy, so that's not the problem. more so I'm really scared of getting looks at a gym, especially because I'm not really interested in loosing weight? I was just wondering how you got over getting looks at the gym or dealing with fat microagressions or if it's not really something that happens?
For me personally? I haven’t experienced it. I’ve seen the occasional negative thing online but in my experiences people at the gym are kind of nerds. For the gym. They are gym nerds.
So they were willing to help if you needed it and stuff like that. There is a lot of misinformation there and if you engage you might hear more about protein shakes than you want to, but honestly they have always been supportive to me..
I suspect they probably see me as one of the “good” fat people who are trying and they probably have negative attitudes towards those who don’t exercise but I never got that deep.
Honestly my interactions with anyone were pretty limited, we were all there to do our respective things.
Maybe other people have had this negativity but I haven’t really, I’m more paranoid about getting the negativity than there is actual negativity.
