Not feeling comfortable around skinny sweaty fit people that make faces, and whisper snide comments.
Frightening small children.
The reasons go on, but in the end who really suffers? I have a weight issue. It’s mostly in my genes, but I also have severe sleep apnea. A lot of people don’t realize that conditions like Sleep Apnea can actually cause weight gain.
It’s an ugly cycle. Lack of sleep triggers the body to eat more to get the energy needed to move through a day; however not burning those calories leads to a larger less efficient body which causes the apnea to get worse and speeds up the cycle.
I had a gastric bypass. I’m very happy with the results and it probably saved my life, but weight does creep up.
I’ve been to Over Eater’s Anonymous in my life. Weight Watchers, different diets; gone to gyms; had trainers, worked with professional weightlifters, and those annoying nutritionists that all seem like they’re anorexic or bulimic.
I have two resolutions this year. One is to take a French course or two, (or six) and try and become more proficient en Francais. My second one is to get back to exercising and eating healthier.
So my question to you; my fellow readers in the area is which gyms or facilities do you like or recommend? And I’m even toying with creating a Cornwall Free News Weight Life Club or doing a Cornwall’s Biggest Weight Loser web show?

PS – the picture is not of myself as per the many emails I’ve received. 🙂
