My response, summed up:

1)  An overweight person at the gym isn’t necessarily a rookie.  Stop making stupid assumptions.  Also, a fat person at the gym during the start of a new year might not be trying to lose weight; sometimes we want to get healthy and don’t care if that happens to mean we lose weight.   436 more words
