Tfw the only time I'm not miserable and contemplate suicide is when I'm at gym
>it's a rest day
I've been going to the gym for close to 1 month now. I've been doing pretty well. I've got good form, I'm dieting well and I can already see improvements in my strength and life as a whole is generally improving, I'm just still so self conscious about my weight to the point that it cripples my mental state.
I know some of you have been in the same position that I'm in now, and I know I'll lose weight and gain muscle with time (I reckon 1 year until I feel confident enough to actually start doing thing with friends in real life again).
To those of you who were in a similar situation to me, how long did it take you to start feeling better about yourself?
Yeah man, that's the dream. It just sucks knowing that I'm going to feel this way for at least another year or so. I know it'll get better with time, but it's just frustrating
6'2" here, was 110kg once, started lifting at 100kg
got rid of most of the unwanted fat in 6months with still shitty diet but slowly and steady shifted to just eating better
so I guess the jiggling will stop in about 3-4months depending on how serious are about your routine and diet
was mildly depressive ~10years, then my gf of 7 1/2 years left me and one year later my grandma died, so the got way worse...
yet, after 3months I started to feel better mentally, and from there on my base mood steadily increased
keep at it just 2 more months and I'm sure there will be a noticable difference to you!
hope you can take that as motivation, and don't forget:
WE ALL and especially YOU are gonna make it, brah, KEEP IT UP!
This is going to sound so fucking gay, but I legit teared up from your post. You have no idea how helpful that was. I think that's the nicest thing anyone has said to me in a good 3 years. Thank you, anon. You are a god amongst men.
Anne frankly, I did nazi that coming. I literally came here to say this but boy, that escalated quickly so to the top with you! Lost it at 'This is why we can't have nice things' and then my faith in humanity was restored, my mind blown, and manly tears were shed. Well said. As a 'murican, I can confirm this gem has just won the internet and is doing it right. Just sayin', I know that feel, bro, and while that was a risky click, this post was a 9/10, 11/10 with rice, would read again. I see what you did there and it feels good man. You're doing God's work, son. I laughed way harder than I should have at your list that seems legit and totally nailed it. You - I like you. You magnificent bastard; you, sir, are so brave, a gentleman and a scholar, and seeing how you are a redditor for 4 years, this checks out, so I'll allow it. I regret that I only have one upvote to give for this cool story, bro. CTRL+F "about tree fiddy" was not disappointed. Wait, why do I have you tagged as "NOPE NOPE NOPE"? Nice try, you monster. You are now banned from /r/pyongyang What did I just read? Dafuq? I read that as "YOU HAD ONE JOB". I can't fap to this. You must be new to reddit, so I'll see your cakeday and raise you a karma train. One does not simply rustle my jimmies, not even once. Jet fuel can't melt dank memes, that stahp gave me cancer for science, so that's enough internet for me today. OP is a fuzzy little man-peach, 2/10, would not bang. What is this I don't even know how is this wtf? Circlejerk must be leaking. This will get buried but brace yourselves, some men want to watch the world burn right in the feels. When you see it, they'll KILL IT WITH FIRE! But this has nothing to do with atheism. Lawyer up, delete facebook, hit the gym, and SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY, said no one ever, so you wouldn't download a strawman. /r/dadjokes. whoosh. Since rule #1 is 'be attractive', I'll just leave this here: This is my [f]irst post, be gentle.
Edit: This blew up. Pecs!
If you read the whole thing I mention that I know that I'm not going to see progress for ages. I'm more so asking people who were in the same situation as me how they coped and how long they felt like I do for.
hm let me try to remember (so please revise it with someone as it might be incorrect), friend of mine who got me into lifitng wrote it for me, guess it's SS with accessories more or less, 3 sets each exercise, compound excercises 5-8 reps, accessories 10-12:
AxBxAxx BxAxBxx (full body, so pls split bros don't dismiss it, I know about the advantages of splits)
A: Squat, Barbell Rows (light), Bench Press, Assisted Pullups, Biceps Curls,
B: Deadlifts, Overhead Press, Assisted Dips, Side Lateral Raises, Crunches, Hyperextensions (lower back)
and 30min light cardio before each workout.
Sry I don't remember it correctly, but it's been a while ^^
