No Ban for the Broken

If you’ve ever decided you wanted to get healthy so you join a gym to get some exercise, but your too embarrassed to walk in the doorsbecause you feel like you won’t fit in at your size.  Like you need to be thin before go to the gym.  Vicious cycle.

Well there’s a gym in Canada  that gets that, they’re focusing on helping people that or Obese, so they banned skinny people.

The owner said that thin people often bring down the morale.  And she wants the gym to be a safe haven for overweight people who may be intimidated to work out in front of skinny people. 

Funny...it kind of reminds me sometimes of what people might think about God.  You know you want to change, and you do that with God’s help, but you think you’re not good enough yet.

You know God’s not like that.  You don’t need to have it all together to talk to Him.  In fact it’s better if you don’t.  That’s his specialty. He says just come as you are.

That is sad.  Banning skinny people so others won't feel bad.  How come no one cares about the skinny people.  I am almost thirty and every where I go people make nasty remarks and turn their noses down at me because I am so small.  I can't help it being 80lbs and 5'1.  Its embarrassing and people think I  don't eat or do drugs.  I would never ban a larger person because I am jealous that they have some meat on their bones and can find clothes to fit them.  At least there is help for the larger people.  There is no help advertised for me just people judging.  To ban skinny people from a gym just seems wrong.  Maybe the owner should counsel the patrons into loving themselves and not worrying about who weighs what.  When the patrons lose the weight do they have to join another gym because they may offend the others working out?
