A Turning Point
This week I turned the corner.
In the past, anytime I found myself in a gym setting, I remained uncomfortable. I always felt like—no matter how kind people were—they looked at me like I didn’t belong. No matter how I tried, I couldn’t seem to fit into that setting. I was an outsider who couldn’t fit in.
That has all changed.
When I went in for my workout on Monday, I felt like I fit in just as much as anyone else. I’m really not sure what’s different—except me.
This time around I’m looking at this experience as the start of a new way of doing life. I’m not looking for shortcuts or a “diet” to get my weight down where I want it to be. Going to the gym is now something I do—like going to lunch with friends.
It also feels like something I can keep doing, instead of using it as the means to an end.
How about you? What’s keeping you from making fitness part of your life?
