If gyms cut off a membership for someone once they achieved a healthy weight more people would go go the gym because being surrounded by other unhealthy people won't make them feel as I confident but more faced with reality, amirite?

I think it's the opposite for me. When I went to gym regularly, seeing people in shape inspired me to keep coming back. It was a great feeling to get to the same level of fitness as someone that I admired.

I've seem quite a few people say that fat people lose motivation to go to the gym because so many in shape people are there. The votes on this surprises me.

Fat people here; it is definitely demotivating. I've been to the gym twice, and my first thought whenever I see someone doing their respective exercise is a big "Go fuck yourself" in my head. It's not like I'm ACTUALLY upset with them; they have every right to be there and maintain their fitness. I'm also not going to try any less, because my health is still important to me. It's just passively depressing to be struggling with assisted pull-ups while the guy in front of me is effortlessly swinging around unassisted.

It would be a significantly better environment if literally anyone else there was trying to not die early rather than maintain peak physical condition. I also get a strong sense of judgement coming from the employees, but I'm just paranoid.

Gyms shouldn't cut off memberships once a healthy weight is reached, but rather there should be a separate gym people are referred to once that healthy weight is reached.

I think it's because some people took the post as a suggestion to makes gyms do so, rather than a prediction of the effects of such a decision. I think it may be a good idea for some gyms, but definitely not all. But still, that's not what the post says.
