Hey everyone. My biggest obstacle is getting over my fear of working out with all of the "fit" gym goers. I need to use those machines to back to my goal weight, but I always freak out when I see how fit everyone is! The guys are strong and built, the few ladies are tiny and strong. So I head to the group cardio classes with women more like myself. I feel very self-conscious about it! Any tips or advice?

Just remember many of the very people you see fit and trim may not have been that way too long ago.They made a choice to get in the gym and I'm fairly sure it's because they had some issue areas they wanted to tighten up.Look at them as motivation for you and your goals.If they can do it,so can you.Set realistic goals and take it one day at a time.Trust me,when you start to see the results of your hard work,you will be in the gym every chance you get working out harder than ever.
