I'm overweight and I recently joined a gym but my self confidence is so low I find it hard to go because I feel so judged. I know logically that everyone's just doing there own thing and don't care about me but I just get so scared
Any tips to boost self confidence in the gym?

think of it this way: you're doing something about it. it's not logical for them to judge u for being overweight, when u there to lose the weight. I actually think it's kinda cool to see someone overweight at the gym. it shows me that they haven't simply given up, and are trying. I think that your decision to go to gym is commendable and brave. if anyone judges you, just keep in mind your goal. once you reach that goal, if they still judge you, I suppose it's probably because they're jealous. hope you don't feel too overwhelmed, and good luck 😉3

As a "fit" gym rat I'll tell you exactly what I think about overweight people at the gym,
"Good for her. That's inspiring. I'm so glad she's so dedicated"
Seriously that's what the gym is for, personal improvement for whatever level you're at. And honestly I still have days where I judge myself too. It's natural but you have to learn to kick those thoughts out and see how far you've come!3
