100 lb. Club - I might be the fattest...

View Full Version : I might be the fattest...

So, this morning I dragged my sleepy butt to the gym for a 6AM spin class. I did this class a year ago and I only lasted one class. It totally kicked my butt and I left with my tail between my legs, too embarrassed (and sore) to ever attempt it again. (I'm more of a runner anyway!)

But right now my running bra is too small ::sigh:: and spinning was the only group fitness class offered this morning, so I went for it.

And, while I was very nearly the fattest person in the room, I was definitely not the least fit! I was able to keep up this time around! I stayed with the cadence and stayed out of my seat the whole time I was supposed to. And there were other "skinnier" people in the room (the ones who I'm always so intimidated by) who weren't keeping up as well!

So, I know it's not healthy to compare myself to other people at the gym. It's a habit that has been 25 years in the making, though. I'm working on it, I promise. It just felt good to be able to keep up and see that maybe I'm not as bad as I make myself believe sometimes. :?:

That is so awesome! Go you! I've always wanted to try spinning but I'm very intimidated. I'm impressed!

Good job! I'm not sure I'd like spinning. Those skinny seats on bikes make my butt hurt. :)

Thanks, everyone! The seat is definitely a challenge. I have biking shorts with a padded butt (like I need any extra padding back there!) that seem to help.

Whoot. Keep up the great work. :bike:

Good for you! I think that's awesome. I've been eyeing some spinning classes, but know I'd end up with my tail between my legs and too embarassed to ever go back...

evoo-- Just jump in there! If I can do it, anyone can. But I do highly recommend the padded butt cycling shorts. :o

Cycling shorts? :o On second thought, maybe spinning is not for me... :p

Keep it up! Intimidate those skinny girls. ;)
