Want to go away for two weeks to a controlled gay environment to lose weight. Preferably here in the U.S. Does anyone have any suggestions. Also was wondering what it would cost me to stay with a PT escort for the two weeks who would be able to help with the weight training along with some fun stuff!

hmmm. Does such a thing even exist? Or, more accurately, I don't think I am clear on what is being sought.

 

I understand the importance that the environment is gay friendly --- it certainly wouldn't be ideal to work on self improvement while making the effort to hide who we are, or deal with resentment, bigotry, etc.

 

But what's a "controlled gay environment"?

 

And, FYI, I too have considered spa visits or fat-camp. So I'm interested in this post.

I wonder what conclusions will be drawn by 22nd Century anthropologists and social scientists who study early 21st Century social media.

You mean a LGBT weight loss spa? Wouldn't you want to stay there rather than with PT/escort?

While you might lose a few pounds, unfortunately it will come right back on with even more.

You MUST make a concerted effort to commit to lifestyle changes (eating, exercise among others) on the LONG-term basis. 2 weeks is not nearly enuf time to accomplish significant weight loss.

 

If you really WANT to lose weight, and a lot of overweight people do not, please visit a nutritionist and get an understanding of what is involved in food choices (no fads allowed), and try to find a gay or gay-friendly trainer who is sympathetic to the cause.

 

Be aware that you cannot reach your goal of healthy weight loss without committing to exercise on a regular basis.

 

Once you have made the committments, understand food, THEN go to camp!

My partner and I have stayed here a couple times. Gorgeous relaxing place. Spa food, classes, all that sort of thing but not explicitly LGBT friendly, but it IS Sedona, after all.

The ultra-exclusive Golden Door in southern Cal has several men-only weeks. The article below says they're aimed at very wealthy executives, I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of the clients are gay. Might be one to look into.

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

Yes diet and exercise over the long term, but camp could be a good motivator. Once you see some changes, it's a great motivator to work for more. I found that when I maintained a minimum of 12,000-14,000 steps a day, I dropped 20 pounds over 5 months. A gay friendly health spa would also be a good motivator.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I know that nutrition and excercise et. al. are the correct way to go. I have dieted all my life and the results have varied from thin to fat. Unfortunately, it seems that my body keeps deciding that I should weigh in at about a weight where I am not obese, but also not svelte. The spa is to help me with the extra 10 to 20 pounds that I habitually carry. I have a big function (50 year anniversary) coming up and I just want to fit into my tux!

For sure successful weight loss requires a commitment to exercise and dietary restriction. Most often the commitment fails. Rather than self-shaming for being overweight try looking at other factors including genetics and psychological causes. Many people successful in losing weight shift a food addiction to another addiction- quite often alcohol. Camps may be fun and even motivational. But true success requires one to know the cause or causes for the weight gain and dealing with them accordingly.

If you are looking to kick-start your weight loss, a spa might help you shed a few pounds, but don't look for dramatic results after a couple of weeks. Yeah, you'll eat healthy, portion controlled meals, be provided with exercise programs, get pampered and massaged and lose a few pounds but what are you going to do when you arrive home? My suggestion is to find yourself a good dietician who will work with you to avoid all the mistakes and temptations you've faced in the past. In conjunction with this, hire yourself a gym trainer that will provide you with an exercise program that meets you needs. A "diet" or spa week is not the answer to your problem. You are wasting your money on a spa program. You're starting off all wrong! This is not a "gay" thing and you should focus your efforts on realistic and healthy ways to lose weight. A drag queen fitness instructor or a flaming chef ain't gonna do it (LOL). You need to learn to control your eating habits long term and adopt a full time exercise program. This is a life commitment, not a short term solution. Good luck.

You don't have a problem with losing, but maintaining. You have to maintain a loss long enough so that your set point, the weight your body likes, changes - that takes some months.

I'm no help. I opt for the Dictionary.com definition of getaway: "a place where one escapes for relaxation, vacation, etc., or a period of time for such recreation:"

 

For me, a gay fat camp getaway would be a luxury spa with an open bar, brunch, tea-time, and midnight buffets and staffed with a variety of studly masseurs, bartenders and waiters in thongs and cut-off tees. A shuttle service to/from local "entertainments" would be a nice touch.
