Hurdle one, done!

Published January 20, 2015 by Harri

I walked to the gym, drinks bottle and purse in hand, thinking it would be the usual fat-shaming, embarrassing shit that you usually see in these type things. Pleasantly surprised, is an understatement.

Toni (I am assuming that’s how she spells her name as I didn’t see a name badge) was lovely. She didn’t make me feel guilty or horrible for what I had done to myself. Taking height, blood pressure (143 over something), weight (we decided to stick with the Slimming World scales and to weigh then, because I am not getting confused by the two scales and their differences), health issues, why I was referred and we talked about the timetables. The fact that after I have gone through the first initial session I don’t have to stick to the GP hours (I think I will though for the first couple of weeks, I don’t know though), which is a bonus, it means I can go during quieter times. I was also told I could go swimming, which won’t be happening for a long long time. I am not ready for that yet.

I have to go back for 9am on Thursday for my first session. The official gym induction and my first workout. I am absolutely bricking. I will be walking to and from the gym.


Let me know what you think.
