Summer camp, this really cute girl I talked a lot with was able to touch her fingers around my biceps She wouldnt be able to do anymore, but she lives in another country, i havent talked to her in quite a long time. Apparently she started doing drugs like heroin and shit, also is a bit whore, dont want her to end up bad :/ + first type diabetes, tell me about your shitty genetics... had to be fit to live longer
Shiit.. now that i remember, i used to be a skelly

>>35629289 In college I had a 9/10 blonde gf even though I was a 6'0" 120 lb skeletor. One night out this stocky guy started talking shit to me in front of her and made it clear there was nothing I could do about it. Even though lifting =/= fighting, it shamed me into wanting to get big.
It wasnt until many years later that I discovered /fit/ and was motivated to leave curlbrodom and do compound lifts.
>>35629289 First a death of a family friend due to a congenital heart defect. His kid is like my little brother, so I encourage him to go to the gym in order to reduce the risk of him going the same way.
Then about 2 years ago, I got snubbed by my perfect women. Not even for how I looked, but because she didn't want to deal with long distance, and neither of us were in a position to relocate. I had a lot of pent up rage and sadness because of it, pushed her away, took it out on the weights, and started taking my fitness seriously after that.
>Was drinking at a friends house with a girl I liked >Everyone was intoxicated >Friend, myself and said girl went outside for a smoke >Friend starts telling girl why I'm a nice guy and we should date >Girl says and I quote "I want to date a man" >Her words hit me like a ton of bricks
I swore to myself that I would never have a woman refer to me like that again. This is why I lift.
Was fit then tore my ACL and then I joined a frat and gave up on working out and started drinking my life away. People stopped taking me seriously because I wasnt ripped like everyone else and little did they know I was in great shape before joining. Big blow to my self confidence. Then I started noticing stretch marks on my stomach and decided that theres no way in hell Im gonna get obese. Graduated from college at 230 last august, at 215 now.
My story might be a little more abstract. It's a simple fact that the stronger you are, the harder you can work. A beginner squatting 135 1RM isn't working as hard as an expert squatting 600 1RM, because the beginner doesn't have as much muscle to work with. Basically, getting stronger allows you to lift harder, and exert more effort. And you know how when you're angry, working out feels really good? Well, I knew this before I started lifting. When I was frustrated, I would flex isometrically, but it didn't give the same feeling as a knew squatting would. Bringing the two points together, I lift to get stronger, so that when I'm frustrated, I can exert an effort proportional to my frustration. To me, it's the highest form of artistic expression.
About to turn 27. Be 6ft 110kg. Have a solid frame begging for some pristine gains. Been alcoholic for a few years and can feel the toll on my health. Finished of the last drops of cask wine ill ever taste and hit the gym for the first time.
Want to get a few good years of being fit and slaying pussy before my hair line receeds
Flew to Germany for a friend's wedding (one of my best friends in high school). Met up with a bunch of people I had not seen in years, we all went out sight seeing and even doing some shopping. During that time there were two thoughts I had... 1) I am to exhausted to walk around, I skipped a couple days of sight seeing lying saying I was sick because I was to sore/tired from walking.
2) When I was looking for a suit for the wedding and the sales person asked what I liked, I said "It doesn't matter, I won't look good in it anyways."
And that simple thing, where I felt like I had given up on myself was the last straw. I now vow that by time I have to go to my next wedding I will look good in a suit. I don't particular care to wear them around all the time, but I will at least once and like how I look.
That was August of last year, so far I am down 40 lbs with another 50 to go.
I don't know if I'm more upset with my self for staying in the closet for as long as I did or that a I let my self get to almost 300 lb. thankfully I'm now about 220 hoping to get under 190 by my 23 birthday in august.
>>35631690 DNP doesn't have any long-term effects, unlike steroids. I know if you're under doctor's supervision and you take your PCT correctly you can minimize steroid side-effects, but the risk is too great. As long as you're not a complete retard DNP is completely safe. The only people that manage to kill themselves with DNP are skinny anorexic white girls who are too stupid to diet correctly. I eat 2x my bodyweight in protein, take a fair amount of antioxidants, light cardio, and ate 1,500 calories. I lost around 2 months of fat that took 3 weeks with DNP. Feels like Hell though.

I completely ruined my life and had nothing else. Went from suicidal to lifting. I use the pain of the gym as a way to abuse myself. It pays off tho. It's all out of pain. I also take cold showers as a form of abuse, I eat very strict as a way to abuse myself. I figure it's pain and I can use it against myself but it'll pay off.
>>35630975 >>35631046 Bruhs, I said TO ME. I know it's not really art, but I don't' get anything out of drawing. I meant that it's how I express myself physically. If THAT'S fedora-worthy, fuck, I must be out of the loop.
>>35632819 >>35632835 I'll see her again soon. We'll see how it goes. She has an hourglass figure if that hour hourglass were filled with mud instead of sand. She'll be my cardio bunny fixer upper for the year.
>>35629289 Met my relatives for the first time after my uncle died. My mom never got along with her family so we never met anyone beyond grandma. First off, they wouldn't come up here because it was too hard for the funeral, we had to take his ashes to them. What we greeted us was 14 electric scooters who wanted to avoid at all costs scattering the ashes to the winds as was in the damn will, because "keeping balance while going over uneven ground makes their muscles ache the next day". I am not joking, 8 of them gave that excuse. Fortunately my mom put her foot down and made them drive 200 feet off the road to do it. Seeing that was my future if I didn't change made me start lifting. Haven't glanced back at what I was once. See them every couple of months now to serve as a nice fresh bit a motivation.
>>35629289 >Former pothead >Really lazy >Small dick When you are that much of a loser you can't afford being a slob I still won't amount to much after getting /fit/, but at this point every sort of effort to improve myself can't hurt, even if it's pointless Quitting smoking was surprisingly easy, I could do without the constant dreams though Six months later, and it's still almost every night, annoying shit

>>35633073 Thank god she wasn't a tumblr cunt. First thing I did after her though was fuck one just to see what would happen and if I could. 4chan was right; they all just want Chad. And here I am having become one on the exterior, not for them, but because in the end I wanted to be Chad too.
this is definitely not the main reason but certainly one of them
>18 yr old, out with friends near the beach late at night >another night where I felt angry at being so skinny and not feeling very attractive >been talking to one of the girls that was with us >nothing serious but was down to get with her >eventually we need to leave the beach, have a slight car situation on how to fit all of us in two cars >want to sit next to the girl I've been talking to but another girl complained that the other spot is too small and wants me to sit there and not next to the girl >say that I am bigger than her and it doesn't make sense for me to sit in the small spot (I'm 6'0, she's like 5'6) >says "let's be real, you are not bigger than me. talking hips and waist and stuff" right in front of the girl I've been talking to >feel like my masculinity just got crushed, depressed the whole car ride back home
Man, I'm sure it wasn't something she thought twice about but it really got to me the way she said it. It was like there was no filter and she didn't want to deal with trying to negotiate with me. I really hate being in that situation and I never want to feel smaller or weaker than a girl
>>35633120 Sounds like something I'd do. >which means you're a pussy faggot who should seriously grow a pair >>35633146 You, you're a fag. Don't pretend everything you like is high quality and mature. >you're on 4chan My point is made.
>>35633270 >>35633171 I can't explain it well, but all my friends would side with her. Not that they like her more, but it's just a weird thing. I wouldn't have been a good move by me in my friend group especially since I was still in high school at that time
I was at a party in my late teens and talking to a girl I liked when basically this drunk chad who I disliked because he was a shithead showed up at the party. He got really wasted and then tackled me in the middle of the party and slammed my face into the floor, got a bloody nose and bloody lip. Then he put me in some weird wrestling move where he made me tap out and pretty much everyone just laughed at me and none of my friends did anything and the girl just stopped talking to me. I was pretty much completely humiliated that night.
Became pretty introverted and stopped talking to everyone from my hometown. Ended up just working and then moved to a new city and started working out a bunch. Going to school now and getting ripped, theres a muay thai gym down the street I want to start going to.
Part of me wants to go back and beat the ever loving shit out of that kid and pretty much everyone who watched and laughed, but I think it was the catalyst I needed as a kid who grew up scrawny and bullied on and off to finally change.
I was skinny fat my whole life. During grad school I gained 55 pounds in two years thanks to fast food and tons of booze. I became so fucking disgusted in myself. I was so ashamed of how I looked, especially around friends and coworkers. Only stupid people are fat.
I've been eating well, lifting and swimming for four months now and I'm down 35 pounds. Literally every aspect of my life better. I'm never going back.
>>35629289 I grew up fat and with a really awful mother who liked to point that out, so (fueled by a lot of misplaced Body Positivity culture) my obvious teenage reaction was to say "SCREW YOU MOM! I'M FINE JUST THE WAY I AM!"
Texting a grill and she asks me what I'm doing >"working out" >"lol what? You workout???" Ah fuck that. I quit doing body weight shit, started lifting, changed friend groups, went to parties, girls now find me attractive, lost virginity, gained confidence. Life gets better, anons.
>Ask this big titted skinny nerdy redhead to homecoming >hardcore had a crush on her >Could say first love >she was my first kiss >we made out all the time >never let me put it in tho >she said during Hc it would happen >Turns out she was cucking me for a homecoming date >her Best friend told me of this during homecoming >I said fuck that >left her ass at the dance >walked home >phone blows up next day >Tell her she can fuck herself and don't speak to her. >Skip school for two days Cuz I'm depressed. >come back and Now she's the one mad and hurt. >it's all my fault Cuz I didn't pay attention to her feelings >lol >Did I mention she's Bi polar?
Now I'm a 23 year old Fat virgin I've hit Rock bottom in my life
>jobless >Fat >Virgin
I've decided time to turn shit around. Now I just get angry at myself and try to improve
>going to school to get a major in software engineering >Cutting on a 1800 call diet losing about 2lb a week
So things are looking better >mfw I still think about her, and sometimes convince myself it was my fault. >maybe if I treated her better.
To be honest the only reason I'm still breathing is my anger at how humiliating that time was and never letting it happen again.
>friend shows interest in me >flirting etc >we fuck >try to become friends with Benz >friend won't say yes or no >still flirts with me though >try to see if friend likes me >won't say yes or no >won't date me or reject me >driving me mad >feel like this is a game I'm somehow losing >something in back of head snaps >ditch friend, go on crazy spree of improving myself in every way I can imagine >obsessive, driven crazy >includes becoming fit as fuck >all out of spite >never even see said friend again, just had to prove to myself I was better than them
Probably have a couple screws loose, but I improved so much and I'm glad to be fit. Got a better paying job, moved away from toxic shitty roommates and started dating someone worth my time.
I'm not as fit as I was back then, but I find it addicting/enjoyable to keep up with work outs. Sometimes I miss that wild motivation, but it was almost like a beneficial mental break. I was pretty off my hinges.
>Be me >15 >One of my friends who happened to be a girl told me I would be really attractive if I was in a bit better shape. >She told me she would help me get in shape >Fastforward 7 months and her and I are working out 5 days a week with each other. >I'mlookingdamngood.png >Damnshelooksgoodtoo.jpg

>>35629874 No one clapped for me either, and I was chubby at the time. Is there any such thing as a bad date if you can learn and grow from it? Is there as much heaviness around getting fired or losing an employee when those experiences contain the seeds of your own growth? We're becoming a better version of ourselves, and we should be grateful for those experiences, even if they serve as a low point so that we may reflect and say "never again."
>>35634791 >not realizing that every person on this planet leads a life as intricate as your own, going through their own hardships that, while seemingly insignificant to you, may be a personal hell for them >not realizing that you see what you want to see in every single person you'll ever meet, even after I tell you all of this >you personally decide each person's emotional depth, and your decision reflects yourself and your vanity, nihilism, cynicism, or compassion
I actually didn't have one of those moments of realization. I had always been chubby, but it was within reason. I had people ask me before whether I was fat or extremely fit (weird body type I guess. I had beefy arms and shoulders). I looked in the mirror on my first day of college and didn't really like what I saw, so I started.
>>35630073 When I first started lifting, somebody passive aggressively asked me if I was still doing my gym routine knowing full well I was. I'm still dyel, but I have muscle and strength. I bust my ass and am gonna make it broseph.
>skinny. long hair. "nice guy". perpetual friend zone.

That made me snap Everything about being fat growing up built up to that moment

Feels good brehs. Just the discipline from working out has gone a long way.
>I'm an absolute bore to be with >never start a conversation on my own - and when I am in one, it's typically short >Never had a gf (had crushes, but not the balls to ask them out) >really quiet all the time >sometimes I wonder if people would even notice if I am to disappear one day
I have found temporary peace and calm by combining /fit/ and /out/...resulting in a life changing experience.
I'm still kinda quiet and all, but I'm sure as hell more noticeable for people. Conversations are still short, but I've found myself starting them.
Literally for no reason just one day on the way home I went into a sports store and bought a set of dumbbells (obviously I didn't know shit at the time). Fucked around for a bit with them and bought a barbell and fucked around with that for a while (still didn't know shit). Eventually I started going to a gym instead as I couldn't afford to get a squat rack or bench and a friend got me in on one of those first month free deals w/no sign up fee.
So now finally I work out with a proper set of equipment and I follow an actual routine and I really enjoy seeing my numbers go up.
I pretty much don't have any reason to do it other than I like it. I'm not lifting for gf (already had relationship for a few years) and I've got no aspirations to be a power lifter or body builder.
Realizing Im a socially anxious sociopath who burnt and alienated every friend and partner Ive ever had, with no strong passion or aspiration for the future despite being enrolled in a pre-law program at uni. I feel I have nothing positive to offer this world and think about offing myself frequently. Thus, Ive decided to get shredded and see if that improves my outlook. Then, if I still wanna off myself, at least Ill leave a sexy corpse.
>>35635091 fellow depressed brah here. don't let it. i know it sounds like useless advice, but every time you start thinking thoughts that make you sad, actively switch your thinking to something else. don't dwell. this advice literally cut out 80% of my depression. YMMV.
i still have 30 or so lbs to lose before i will start building muscle. (currently 222 lbs at 6'0'... highest weight was about 245.) I'm not gonna stop, and neither should you. I'm, 26 now, haven't been under 200 lbs since like 7th grade. fuck it, i'm doing it this time.
I just decided to start gyming consistently and get off bad shit, no energy drinks or smoking, gone from eating fast food twice a day (i know right) to cooking my own meals for work. Down 20lbs. Sitting at 230 lbs. But slowly and surely gonna make it
>>35629289 My grandfather's funeral. While he was dying of cancer, the last words he said to me were that he didn't want me to become a drunk, he was a reformed alcoholic, sober for 40+ years. I had a few drinks before seeing him one last time to muster up some courage. When it came time for his funeral, I had to buy new dress pants size 44 waist with elastic bands on the sides to fit my size 47 waist. At that point, I weighed 270 pounds, the most ever in my life. I was deeply ashamed and disappointed in myself and I vowed at my grandfather's funeral to get fit. Took me four years to drop 100. at p
>>35629289 I am half-asian and live in a neighbourhood with mainly white people. They always made fun of me because I was different and also a little bit fat. So I decided to get better than them in every important way and started lifting
>lecture hall seats uncomfortable >out of breath after walking across campus >stairs are nightmare >out of literally all of my childhood friends I've become the fattest of the group >can be injured easily
Last straw was when I pulled a muscle in my pelvis while having sex with my gf. Sex is supposed to feel good, not be a goddamn fucking painful chore.
>>35637066 Because we can all relate with being lonely and friendless but that other post seemed made-up shit for shock value >>35629289 Last summer was near obese according to BMI, right? One day one of my friends invited me to spend a Sunday climbing on a mountain path. Sure, I thought, let's go, I am a bit out of shape but I walk everywhere so it should be fine right? We got to the parking area but it had started to rain, so we decided to call it quits and just go to a very near refuge. It was 200 meters distant, on a very sweet incline, maybe 20 degrees. That 5 minutes walk on an incline fucking obliterated me, I arrived at the refuge out of breath and drenched in sweat. That got me thinking, what if I had to face the whole climb instead? What if someone's life depended on it? And that's the story of how I decided to not be a fatass anymore.
My friend wanted a gym buddy so I told him we'd read SS and get rippletits. I read it, he didn't. I woke up one day and said to myself, "I read a goddamn 350 page book on lifting, I'm fucking lifting."
>>35630956 You too? Man fuck these women . :/ >>35632995 looool >>35635289 Bitches will pretend to care , sad true man. And me? When I would get called skinny and made fun of by 5'4 180lbs 13 year old fat hispanic kids , I was 5'11 135lbs , I had a gf that always said the same shit , until I found Zyzz and /fit/ , all i used to do was play WoW .

I lift so that one day I can punch him for that incident, and it will hurt him like he did to my chances of getting laid that week.
