It's Gym life, but not as we know it

It's Gym life, but not as we know it...

Doedd dim diddordeb gyda fi yn ymarfer corff, tan yn ddiweddar. Roedd e'n ddim ond ar ôl colli pwys fy mod i wedi meddwl am wneud mwy o ymarfer corff. Hyd yn oed wedyn doedd dim diddordeb gyda fi mewn ymuno â champfa ac yn ymarfer corff dan do. Mae'n well gyda fi seiclo a rhedeg y tu allan mewn awyr ffres.

Ond heddiw es i i'r gampfa i gwrdd â hyfforddwr personol am y tro cyntaf. Roeddwn i edrych am gyngor ac efallai mesur fy mraster, i wybod faint o bwysau mwy roedd rhaid i mi golli.

Wel, roedd sioc i fi. Mae'n ymddangos fy mod mewn perygl o gael dim digon o fraster, ac mae rhaid i mi stopio colli pwys ar unwaith. Roedd e'n dda i wybod, ond nawr rhaid i mi feddwl yn wahanol am fy mhwys a fi iechyd - ac yn dechrau bwyta mwy. Mae'n neis iawn i deimlo rydw i ar ddiwedd o golli pwys a nawr rhaid i mi jyst cadw fy mhwys yn sefydlog.

Roeddwn i'n hapus iawn o fod wedi ymweld â'r gampfa y tro hwn. Nawr nydda i'n parhau gyda rhedeg tair gwaith yr wythnos, yn fy nghampfa, yn yr awyr ffres - ac yn ceisio bwyta yn dda ac yn bwyta digon i adeiladu fy nghyhyrau hefyd.

Dwi'n teimlo fel pe bai fy mywyd wedi newid. Mae'n fywyd, ond dydy e ddim fel dwi ei adnabod.

I was not interested in exercising, until recently. It was only after losing weight that I thought about doing more exercise. Even then I was not interested in joining a gym and exercising. I prefer to cycle and run outdoors in fresh air.

But today I went to the gym to meet a personal trainer for the first time. I was looking for advice and perhaps to measure my fat, to know how much more weight I had to lose.

Well, it was a shock to me. It seems that I am in danger of not having enough fat, and I have to stop losing weight immediately. It was good to know, but now I have to think differently about my weight and my health - and start eating more. It's really nice to feel that I'm at the end of losing weight and now I just have to keep my weight stable.

I was very happy to have visited the gym this time. Now I will continue to run three times a week, in my gym, in the fresh air - and try to eat well and eat enough to build my muscles too.

I feel like my life had changed. It's life, but it's not as I know it.
