how is 2015 going for you, /fa/?
>started hitting the gym in january as a 5'9" 185lb depressed fatass with literally zero muscle & constantly ate out of boredom; couldnt even run 1mi on the treadmill without taking a break
>had enough money to buy clothes but i could only wear fat people stuff or look obese as fuck
>wore a jacket literally everyday to hide fat
>now 155lbs and built enough muscle with >dumbbells to actually start lifting
>run 5mi every day and feel less winded than i did running half a mile before
>eat one healthy meal every day and fast food is literally disgusting now
>social anxiety and depression are completely gone
>i can actually wear clothes and have them fit
>have enough confidence to start convos with people
>10/10 best year of my life so far m8s
I did all of that in 2013!
I worked out very casually before that and was convinced I was incapable of having abs/muscle definition. Got a physical job (but still in retail, so human interaction), started losing weight/looking slimmer, so I hit the weights. Became very aesthetic in about 7-8 months.
Updated wardrobe, better fitting stuff, more /fa/.
Working retail made me less socially self-conscious, more confident - no more depression.
Found a gorgeous girlfriend who is best friend. Regular sex. She is madly in love with me.
Fast-forward to 2015, still have all these things.
Feel empty again.
Sorry man, didn't want to bum your mood, but you can't just fix your life by looking sexier. Take this new-found confidence and make a difference in the world. I haven't done that, and I'm starting to hate myself again.

that actually hit pretty hard. Getting happy, fit, healthy is only step one. Keep moving forward.
cant do anything about it m9 cant change genetics
only 19 so i might get one or two inches still
yeah got adderall script (i actually have adhd im pretty sure) so that really cut down on my eating until i got used to it
if everything keeps going for me im planning on starting med school after undergrad so hopefully passion for my job will carry me after i get fit
Are you a woman?
Terrible. At this point, I'm starting to give up on some of the things I expected to achieve ever since 2012.
>still a dumbass
>never regained my confidence that I lost in 2011
>never acquired a steady and decent social circle like I did before I moved back with parents in their hometown in late 2010
>tfw he doesn't text you anymore
Back to where I started I guess
>Realize, once again, I am a huge faggot
>Start eliminating fake confidence that I created to convince myself I am cool
>Start gaining confidence from myself rather than what others think of me
>Social anxiety eliminated
>Dressing by what I think looks good, not what others think looks good
>Create personal aesthetic
>Listen to different music, stuff that I like, not what's "hip"
>The people who mock me are now easily distinguishable as insecure when they are doing so around me
>I can feel my personal magnetism forming
>People start to like me more
>Become more social
>People like me because I don't try to be someone I'm not now
I should stop writing these, usually my personal successes go to my head and I get too confident with the shit I do, then I get depressed again.
Anyways, I dress however the fuck I want now, take chances, I don't care what people think of me, and people like me because of this. I'm the happiest I have ever been in my life, and I can say that honestly.
