Default How you know you are getting fatter

So about 6 months ago I joined a local gym. Usual story really: A rare burts of fresh exuberance to get healthy. It rapidly dissolved into a very half arsed volley of excuses why I could no longer make it to the gym sessions I had promised myself not a few weeks prior.

I have spent 300 [50 sucked from my bank account on the same day each month with stellar consistency] - an increasingly depressing item on my bank statement. Out of the last 6 months I have attended 5 sessions, of those only 2 have been in the past 4 months. Oh Lord, I am a disgrace.

The point being, that I attended tonight out of sheer humiliation. When I had origionally joined I was weighed, measured and generally categorized as a fatty by my instructor. The measurements where noted on my gym plan card. Well, tonight I went through the same measureing and weighing ritural and compared myself to me six months past. Oh my, oh my, oooooooh my.


[Confession time: I got a teeny, tiny, secret thrill from the whole thing]
I am 22lbs heavier :-) without even trying - check me out, thats quite an achivement I think, and mostly on the old belly]

I understand what you mean about being weighed and measured...
Why pay so much money if you want to exercise? Walking, jogging, swimming, etc. are all free or low-cost

Btw, I liked your picture and hoped you would post more

Seriously. Walking, biking, swimming, even cleaning, are cheap n' easy exercise options. Put on some jams and it's a good time!

Can you bail out of the contract? If you're not using the gym, no sense in paying $ for it. I trudge to the gym every so often, but I'd much rather go biking or walking.

You look gorgeous- more pics please!

Green Eyed Fairy and Love Dubh: why on earth are there not more sane people out there like you? I have no idea why anybody would want to pay dearly pound the dark satanic treadmills and go nowhere when cycling (for example) not only costs nothing (besides the capital cost of the bicycle), but saves on fuel bills compared to using a car? And one gets actual scenery. For free.

Cool

Well, I'm happy you got a rise out of your membership, braveUK.

I don't understand why a lot of people go to the gym either. I hate treadmills and yet I see legions of chicks running on the darn things for an hour or so a day and then going home. I guess it's a good idea if you live in a truly inhospitable climate or could use the time to socialize and network, but still..!
I can think of one good reason to go to the gym: equipment. There's nowhere else I can find things that weigh 1.25 to 1200 lbs in conveniant increments that are so perfectly shaped or arranged for me to find some way to lift them. Oh.. and you can meet cute girls in tight clothes

Hi Brave! Well, it's not all money down the drain... you had the naughty thrill of being re-weighed and told you had gained 22lbs Now cancel that membership and standing order and next time you're in Edinburgh pop through here with a cheesecake for two
