I know people who already weigh 2x times as much as they should and they don't have any problems getting around. It would be like serious weight training with weights on all of the time. I think 2X gravity would be livable, though it would either strain your heart, or you would have really good cardio health because of it!
Weighing twice as much as you should isn't the same as the increased acceleration of higher gravity, which means impacts are more severe, etc.
