Last Saturday I joined the gym.
I wasnt the most eager of people to be honest. I have always thought of the gym as a boring, smelly place, full of thin people who love themselves more then anyone else does. Who sees the place more like a catwalk then a gym with the top brand sportswear on display.
And I guess there are gyms that are like that and maybe this one is on certain days, but I havent seen it. Yet!
I have been four times this week and its full of a mixture of people. Ok you have the buff blokes at the back with the weights (I havent seen any girls yet) and then at the front you have alsorts. The very toned, fit runners on the treadmill, the odd older person on the cycling machine, but many more bigger people trying to loss weight and plodding along slowly like me. No designer labels, no one keeping up with the Jones.
And do you know what? I am loving it, ive lost 8 pounds and its good to be wrong.
