You see your face flipped one way all the time from the mirror and grow used to it. Seeing it in a photo flips it to how everyone else sees it but weirds you out a bit cause you aren't used to it. Now you notice the little errors in symmetry that you'd never noticed before. It's why everyone looks at it and just goes "nah you look fine that's how you always look" and you're freaked out. Also why in drawing if you flip an image you drew all of a sudden you see more errors.
There is still some distortion in a photo. When you look at an object your brain adds depth to an image. That doesn't happen with a flat photo. Your brain can approximate the dwepth but it's not quite the same. Also, a camera captures light a bit differently than the human eye.
Basically look at how similar your friends look in their photos to how they look in real life. The same applies to you, BUT you are used to your reverse image so it looks weird. There's also the issue of you seeing your face from angles you never see it from and that can freak you out a bit too.
This is horrifying.
>pic somewhat related. Supposedly 35-70 closest to reality.
This is why many people look ugly in self portraits when they use their phone's front facing camera ~1 foot from their face.
Hold it as far away from you as possible and zoom in for a better focal length.
Also, cameras have shitty dynamic range compared to our eyes.
Mirrors will always be more accurate.
One night I was tired and really depressed again because of it, so I cried when I saw the zyzz legacy video. I am a 23 y/o kissless virgin not even squatting 2pl8 but dammit one day I am gonna make it
35 is not closest. Even 50 will distort the face in an unflattering way. For portraiture, 85mm (minimum) is the most accurate. Photophag so I know. Personally I shoot with a 135 f/2 for the most flattering results.
Bah! I'll bet he still taps into his old playlist from time to time. Hell, every now and again I'll listen to Disturbed, knowing that every song is pretty much the same thing and nothing beyond mediocre.
This fucking post man. I believe in you anon. You're going to fucking make it my man. We're all gonna fucking make it.
I would tell you never to give up, but I know that you won't ever even think abut giving up. Fuck man I love seeing motivated-as-all-hell people on this board. You'll be squatting 2pl8 soon enough. Then 3pl8. Then even fucking 4pl8. We'll make it anon, there's hope for everyone. For you, for me, for this whole board. You have the will, you will succeed
>tfw even /soc/ called you ugly
Brehs one day I'll make it. I'm skinnyfat/chubby at 173 5'9 but even when I cut to 155 I looked like shit because of lack of muscle, so I'm just gonna bulk to 185 despite my ugly chubby body and ugly chubby face, get 1/2/3/4 and finally cut to hopefully have a defined face since my face is basically a perfect fat circle at the moment. Fuck man I look like a baby. AGHHHH WHY CANT I REROLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
>you only get one life
>you get a fugly face and terrible body
>some people luck the hell out
You will always be judged in the eyes of the white man. When you start getting respect from white dudes, you'll know you've made it. Focus on those cultural and attitude gainz too, though.
Well there's plenty of them
Not really. I want to see people maximizing their looks potential via other routes. I don't know, shit like beta-carotene, other supplements, derma rolling, vitamins.
Superior metal transformation coming through.
Yeah, he went from a nerd to metal Jesus. Too bad he's in jail now.
Hey man I'm just finishing my cut then I'll be posting my 3 year progress pic
I was gonna tell you a story that happened just last night but that's irrelevant. Basically the point was its so worth it and it's gonna improve your life in so many ways. The motivation fades though, and that's where most quit. You have to stay disciplined and just have it become part of your lifestyle from here on in. You have to do what you have to do whether you feel like it or not if you want to reach your goals. Let's go
>approach a random person in the gym and ask if he knows someone who could kill my wife
>plan to stay with our mutual children as alibi
>pay undercover cop
>mfw they arrest me
>blame it on his steroids in court
>mfw roidrage doesn't excuse me from the law
>sentenced to 6 years in prison
>become /fit/ success story
Well, no one said he was smart. Still a sexy beast either way.
No homo though.
5'11 of 6ft in shoes i guess.
this is the physical transformation
Lol yeah you're right man but ive got it figured out. That pic is from this summer, Ive made huge gains in my lats and chest and biceps, been targeting them super hard. Id take more recent pics but the lighting in my new apt sucks and im bulking and i dont look as good in photos, although i prob have at least 10 pounds of new muscle mostly in upper body. Im gonna look absurd when I cut in a weeks.
Fat here, lurking /fht/ for motivation on the daily. Eating around 1500 cals a day, gym 5x a week (3 days PPL with 2 days oly lifting)
One day I'll have decent facial aesthetics.
We r all going to make it brahs
>tfw no matter how ripped you are your skelly manlet friend with Chad face will always steal you girls.
I wouldn't say that I've become hot, but I definitely think I've improved
You look a lot like my oneitis except you're a lot lighter (the only thing I didn't like about her). Does nofap end today? Find out on the next episode of Dragon Ball /fit/!
But no really though, keep it up. I'm super introverted but if I saw you in person I'd try to make something happen.
Zyzz was already handsome and had a good body natty, tbhfam
>tfw 220 down from 350
>tfw chinline finally starting to come in
>tfw it's bretty good
too bad I'm babbyfaced. old people tell me I'll be happy for it in my 30s but thats fffffFFFFFUCKING FOREVER from now
>mfw I'll never be 6'4" with god tier face and am stuck at 6'0" with good face
>do you really gaf what they think?
Everyone cares what everyone thinks deep down brah.
Why else would I lift?
>Mirrors will always be more accurate.
Fuck I hope this is correct. In the mirror I have a diamondy but round face. In a camera my face looks long as fuck and it's like all my facial width disappeared.
I remember seeing this before on here. Think someone posted it along with reddit/imgur link. Comments were basically:
"Glad she got over anorexia but now she's too muscley..."
"Traded one mental illness for another."
"Is it wrong that I liked her before?"
"At least she looked like a girl in the before photo. Now she's just a dude with tits."
Fucking hate leddit.
>tfw 6 foot 200lbs down from 400
>tfw was fat fuck my entire life, not as in chubby, as in ham-planet-holy-fuck-thats-basically-child-abuse-fat
>tfw moved schools every year 4th-12th grade
>tfw very little friends
>tfw complete cocoon mode since I was 17, 21 now
>tfw look bretty decent nowadays, I guess
>tfw people treat me like a normal dude
>tfw people try to joke with me
>tfw people try to socialize with me
It's especially hurtful with people, like family, who just kinda wrote me off when I was at my worst.
I mean. I don't want to blame them. I'm not mad. But that doesn't mean that I want to talk to them now. I still feel the same as I did 3 years ago.
Worse, even, because now I have massive social anxiety thanks to cocooning+having a normal body/dyel gains for the first time ever.
Does the cyborg life ever end?
Or is inner me always going to be the wow-playing, warhammer 40k lore-an, fat fucking nerd I've always been?
(pretend I posted the 40k edit of wojak, I can't seem to find it)
It feels really weird when people who wanted nothing to do with you before now try to be all fun and social.
What's even worse is when women show interest, because you know that they wouldn't even talk to you before.
Anyway, congrats on the weight loss.
This nigger right here took his love of disturbed to far.
This nigger feel asleep listening to "Monster"
This nigger had a poster of the Monster on his bedroom door.
This nigger wanted to grow up and look like monster
He probably has skinny fucking metal head bitches on his dick all the time. I'm jelly.
Jesus fuck I wish you could date a chubby bitch and help them make this happen.
I was trying to do that. Chubby girl at work totally would be fuck-able if she lost 80 lbs.
She was running with me every day after work and then lost interest.
Fatties gonna fat.
If you think girls with vascularity and wide shoulders are attractive then you are a fucking retarded faggot. So sick of seeing you fags on here saying girls that are one step away from FBB mode as being "so hot" and "better than skinny girls"
It's fucking stupid
