There is a huge misconception about fat people - we don’t work out. Sure, there are some that don’t, but there are a lot of us that do. We do aerobics, we weight train, and we can even bend our round bodies in position to do yoga. Yup, just like fashion, working out isn’t just exclusive to skinny bitches!
A few months ago I was on my way to the gym when I was stopped by a woman who I saw at the gym a few nights before. She kindly told me that she and her workout buddy were talking about me after I left. The nerve! I just knew they were talking about my fat ass sweating like a hog at a barbecue while working out a few treadmills over. Oh no, she told me that they were talking about how my workout clothes were color coordinated and how great my hair looked after my workout. Well I’ll be darned! I had no idea people checked out your gym clothes too. I don’t put up much of an effort since the clothes are only going to get soaked with sweat. I was flattered. I LVoe compliments!!
