I was insecure about wearing stringers. I grew up a chubby kid and my weight has fluctuated throughout the years so being made fun of was nothing new.
I didn’t realize that what you go through as a kid definitely affects you in your adulthood in certain instances.
I’m very well aware that my weight has been up and down the past years, especially as a gym owner I’d get comments such as:
“Looks like you don’t follow your own advice.”
“I’d train with him but he’s fat so why waste my money?”
which I admit definitely hit a sore spot in my ego.
Does it suck to hear these? Yep. Does it affect me? Yep. Will it stop me? Nope.
