Do you guys really feel good and happy when you lift?

Do you guys really feel good and happy when you lift? I only feel good when other people approve of me and tell me to keep it up, but I myself don't care for it outside of that. I don't get any personal pride and self-satisfaction out of it.

    Sounds like you're still a DYEL. If you haven't actually gotten results out of it, what personal satisfaction would you have. How long have you been lifting

    Yes because I lift for dead Naruto characters. The key to making it is being a fucking sperg retard with aspirations other than “hehe I want a girlfriend and to be a normie”.

    I enjoy the difficulty, improving my performance, and improving my physique. I learned about the rewards of patience and diligence by gardening, and I have applied that lesson to other areas of my life.

    I sort of get this but it applies to different things in my life other than fitness.

    You will soon chudpill or ascend.

    I was like you once, in college when bros stopped lifting one by one, I was the last and then I got bored. Progress was slow and I got no mires. I also fell into a deep depression (not because of lifting but it contributed to me quitting for a year).

    Then something just snapped, something inside of me, I didn't care anymore, I didn't care about anything.
    All I needed was to be the best version of myself before I died or my body gave out on me. You will either learn to love the workout and the journey for what it is or just give in and seek validation somewhere else.

    I don’t necessarily feel happy but I feel good being able to move weights that others can’t or be more athletic than those around. If anything, the lifting itself just helps numb the depression and deep thoughts. I do get some mires occasionally and that makes me somewhat happy knowing that progress is being made, but it’s kind of a fleeting feeling.

    >don't feel good or happy when I am lifting weights/doing cardio
    >feel satisfaction when my strength and fitness allows me to OHP my children so they can pretend to be flying.
    >feel good when my fitness allows me to carry my pregnant wife around with ease.
    >feel pleased that my fitness will likely extend the time I have to live with my family.
    >hope that it will inhibit the same demetia that claimed both of my grandfathers and my father.
    >fearful that it won't
    Find people worth caring for. people who can come to depend on you. Men thrive when they provide.

    I feel absolutely thrilled about visible progress when I notice it. Was feeling up my abs in the mirror the other day grinning like a lunatic.

    Yes, I'm am immensely satisfied by the fruit of my labor, and the growing displays of my strength.
    If you only feel satisfied when someone praises you -- stop being a women.

    I like it for the struggle itself and for the benefits it gives me. I sleep like a baby on nights I lift for example. Otherwise it takes so much for me to go to sleep. Having people treat you better is also nice.

    At first I never saw much changes, some muscle but still a lot of fat over it so I put it off, I didn't lift as much as I should've, played video games instead. I never enjoyed video games, they wasted time but I never felt happy, never felt much. One day though I was looking in the mirror and saw that I wasn't as fat, my muscle was more visible, my face more defined and when I noticed the changes I felt immense happiness.
    Eventually I stopped playing video games as much, lifted a lot more and did other stuff.
    Will I kill myself? Probably but at least I feel happy with the changes I've made, I've never been this healthy despite still have some fat I'm cutting, I'm like an athlete compared to my old self who was a blob. At the moment I'm happy, maybe not with everything in life or even with most things but I refuse to anhero until I'm finally at my peak. I wonder if I'll cum my pants from the pure joy

    I like seeing my numbers go up, even better seeing my arm/shoulder circumference measurements increasing. Physical mires just mean I'm on the right track

    The only time I’m happy is when I’m drunk and half the time it just devolves into me ragging on myself. My depression is never ending

    i stopped really enjoying lifting 2-3 years ago (started in 2012) but still do it bc every night i flex in the mirror and admire my oblique veins and play piano on my abs

    Only when there aren't people around. That way I can make stupid noises and sing operas during my sets
