    But I don't.  Why?  Because I'm FAT.  And I can't stand to hear all the little snickery comments.  They are said just quiet enough that I'm not supposed to hear, but just loud enough so that I will hear.  

    So, for the benefit of all those little snickery skinny jerks, I stay away from the gym.  And I gave up my beloved swimming.  Actually, it was so i wont get arrested for punching one of them!

    If you want to know the real answer: Just ask a Mom.

      Isn't that important for weight loss anyways (although it is important for other reasons)

    •  Have you been to a community gym lately? (2+ / 0-)

      The YMCA?   I was just at the County pool last week and I can assure you, there were very few snickery, skinny, anybodies over the age of 30.  

      Find the cheapest gym with a pool you can find.  Go there, where all the regular people are.

      •  That's decent advice, (0+ / 0-)

        but what if there are no longer any gyms with pools in her area?

        I ask because the last gym that had a pool here was bought out by some other fitness company, and they closed the last indoor pool in the area. She may not have the option to go to a gym with a pool anymore.

        All knowledge is worth having. Check out OctopodiCon to support steampunk learning and fun. Also, on DKos, check out the Itzl Alert Network.

    •  How About Walking? (1+ / 0-)

      All the "snickery skinny jerks" don't own the sidewalks or the hills for a gentle hike or the beach.  Walk thru a public park.  Walk around your block about 10:00 in the morning when most people are either at school or @ work.  It's a peaceful, great way to start the day.

      When the weather's bad & I can't make it to the gym....I walk up & down the stairs inside & around my house for 30 minutes.  Don't let them take swimming away from you.  

      I lost 20 lbs recently just by cutting back on meat & processed foods.  The gut was the first thing to go away....Thank God!
