Maybe at some point you have seen someone at the gym that is a bigger person. I am talking someone that is pretty obese. The problem in today’s society is we show this facade that we are all loving and politically correct and turn are back on people when they need us the most. I have seen it many times when someone is putting in good solid work and they are being torn down by others just because of their size. What you need to do is be a better person and let them know they are doing a good job.
Many people who struggle with weight problems have been fighting a struggle for a big part of their lives. I remember being younger before I was active and always being a the “fat kid”. This label discourages you and even when you are making real progress it doesn’t take much to knock you down because your conditioned you are nothing. So to that big guy walking slowly around the gym or that big girl using the elliptical let them know they are doing a good job. Anybody that is in the gym is doing more than someone sitting at home on their couch. Tell people they look great and you look forward to seeing them tomorrow.
Well that is my little service post for the day. So encourage everybody even if they aren’t big and grow healthier together.
