What do we use gyms for? To keep up our fitness levels, to get toned or muscular. And for a majority of us, to lose weight.
So when one overweight gym user hit the machines in order to “better herself”, but said she was mocked in the process, the internet was justifiably outraged.
Imgur user MrsJimBeam313 said she was walking to the gym, and overheard a group of men laughing and making rude comments about her.
On a kick-ass Imgur post, she said that after the men called her a “hog” she sat in the parking lot and cried, and “wanted nothing more than to go home and binge watch River Monsters”.
But she didn’t let the bullies win: “But I didn’t. I gave you all a big f**k you and busted my fat ass.
“Over an hour, of sweating and huffing but I did it. Now please excuse my big fat ass as I go home to my loving son who probably wants me to run around with him for another hour.”
“Please excuse my lack of makeup and my ratty old clothes. I did not leave the house to impress you today. I went to impress myself and to make my son proud of his mom.”
You go, MrsJimBeam313. For any lame person who gets a kick out of body shaming at the gym, there are many, many more people who have nothing but respect.
