I started lifting to get a better body so the average person would be impressed, especially girls. It started well and made nice progress until I reached a point where I simply couldn't improve because of my body morphology, my poor genes and my low T.
I also realised along the way that lifting didn't change my awkwardness and social phobia.
So I gave up as I will never reach the body I want and that it wouldn't change the situation I'm in anyway.
>>35667579 You started for vain reasons so it's no surprise you out down the barbell so easily
Don't lift because you want status, lift because it's something every able bodied man down the ages has done, lift because it's traditional and in your blood and heritage. Lifting won't necessarily solve your problems, but not lifting will definitely create ones.

>be me >hungry skeleton since birth >decent runner at age 18 (4:36 mile, 17:20 5k) >go to college, stop running because I hate it >3 years later still hungry skeleton >no longer fast runner >want to be in shape again, don't want to run >lift >make noob gains >suddenly strong and no longer bony >holy shit this is great >never stop
now I do it cause I want to look better, for myself. the more defined I get, the more confident I get. so it isn't quite for girls, it's more of a way for me to improve myself socially with the added benefit of getting stronger.
>>35667512 A little advice, you may think you are totally anonymous online, but there's always someone who can find you, and it could effect you in real life. In no way is that a threat or anything but, not thinking before posting stuff online can hurt you in real life. I've been online since I dialed into bbs. I've watched it grown and flex and change. I've seen bad things happen to good people because they thought they where safe. So I guess what I'm saying is, don't believe just because you think you have anonymity online that there can be no repercussions in real life.
>>35668621 What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
Been in a depression for what feels like a decade. My grandmother passed away last year and that made me reevaluate my life. I feel like I finally may be coming out of it. I've made a lot progress and since I've been feeling better about myself, I just naturally wanted to start eating better, and exercising. It surprised even me.
