    -B:You mean at the gym?

    -B:Well,good luck. Many people plan to do thah at the begining of each year but their commitments don't last that long.

    -Моё новогодное решение -заниматься спортом.

    -Ты имеешь в виду в спортклубе(качалке?)?

    -B:You mean at the gym?
    -A:Yеah. I've been gaining weight recently and I don't feel like what I used to be physically.
    -B:Well,good luck. Many people plan to do thah at the beginning of each year but their commitments don't last that long.
    I'd like to say that I clearly understand all your words in Russian and I realize what do yo mean. Some sentences are pretty close to a native speaker's level. But quite frankly it's no chance that a native Russian speaker say all the sentences in that way as he/she thinks in the other way.

    So first of all let me correct a little your grammar.

    -Ты имеешь в виду в качалке? /*Ты имеешь в виду ходить в качалку?*/

    -Да. Я в последнее время всё толстею и не чувствую себя по-прежнему.

    -Ну, желаю успеха! Многие планируют его(решение) в начале каждого года, но их решения не продолжаются долго.
    Now these sentences sound better but the next variant sounds a little more natural in Russian

    - Ты будешь ходить в качалку?
    - Да, я что-то растолстел в последнее время и чувствую себя не так, как раньше.
    - Ну, желаю успеха. Многих посещают такие мысли в начале года, но не всем удается довести дело до конца.
    And last the best variant I've thought is the(?) following. It sounds very natural in Russian, as you guess

    - Ты будешь ходить в качалку?
    - Да. За последнее время я поправился и уже не чувствую себя в той форме, что был раньше
    - Ну, что же. Удачи тебе! Обычно многие люди дают себе обещание похудеть в новом году или бросить курить, но потом их настрой куда-то улетучивается, и всё остается по-прежнему.
    P.S. I suspect you easily noted that I am not a native English speaker.

    - Я твердо решила - с нового года усиленно занимаюсь собой.
    - Пойдешь в спортзал? (качалка also ok)
    - Да. За последнее время я набрала лишний вес и чувствую себя хуже.
    - Что ж, удачи! Многие пытаются изменить жизнь с начала года, но не у всех получается.

    Heh it's funny, astronomer decided that A is a guy and BappaBa decided it's a girl.

    Don't you think that for a girl качалка sounds kinda funny :)

    Лишний вес смутил; мужики обычно мышцУ подкачивают. Да и Парамита девушка. =)

    Качалку взял в скобки как вариант для мужиков. =)

    Мне тоже так казалось.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.
