"Hey babe, your dinner's ready down here!"
"Gimme a couple more minutes honey, I'm looking for people to annoy me and I haven't quite got there yet. Nearly there now. So close. Oh oh oh here we go. Vegetarian in a gym!? Ahhh yeah. Ohhh yeah. [typing message] Ugly people should NEVER go to the gym! You sicken me. Get a life. So sad.[send message] Okay honey I'm coming...."

Gym really is almost like a cult where I live. The looks you get directed at you and the passive aggressive comments if you're not ripped/in-shape are disconcerting and it hardly encourages anyone to go there to start on the path to getting fit.
Back when I was in college and for a few years after, I chose to do aerobic classes instead. The teachers were wonderful and the other members were just your average people wanting to be healthy.
Now, it's like you have to already be in shape to go to the gym. Otherwise, you don't belong.
Good for you in continuing on your pathway though. I really need to do so myself. Some day!
