wow, ok I’m in a bit of shock!
Ever since I’ve put on weight following my back injury 9 years ago, I’ve struggled with my weight ever since. When I first started teaching, I was one of your “flabbier” instructors, and although I’ve lost a lot of weight and toned up, I’m still a lot larger than most instructors. However, I’m also tall, so I carry some of it because of that, but on the other hand, I’m NOT skinny. My muscle tone though IS starting to show through, but I’m still extremely dissatisfied with my tummy.
However today I was in a computer store buying some ink, and as I wandered over to the girl she said “you know, one of the other guys just commented you must work out in the gym a lot…….I wish I had a body like yours, how much do you have to work out to get that?”
That just kinda floored me, I was in shock. It feels nice to hear that kind of comment, and to know that I AM achieving something and that it’s all worthwhile.
The poor girl was a bit depressed though when I explained that I’m a gym instructor and that I work out nearly everyday.
