    why do you think you're in a race with 18 year olds? they already have you beat in most regards. It's not worth obsessing over

    There's one particular picture of myself at 20 that breaks my heart thinking how much better off I'd be if I had started then. But all we can do is move forward.

    Don't worry about getting into lifting too late, op. Since you're trans, you should try rope exercises. Roughly 40% of trannies do it so it must work

    So how about comparing yourself to those 18 year olds, compare yourself to those fat 28 year olds who haven't started lifting

      comparing yourself to people worse than you does nothing but inflate your ego, which leads to complacency and worse performance

    OP here once again. I have decided to start lifting so that my body shapes up better. I'm really hoping this will enhance the effects of my HRT and then I can get those fit 18 year old boys.

    Just compare yourself to yourself a year ago. Comparing yourself to others is a pointless waste of time. Guessing this a zoomer/genalpha troll thread tho

    I used to workout when I was 19. had a lesion and stopped altogether thinking it wasn't for me. tried again when I was 22 but had no information about nutrition or proper training.

    nowadays it's way easier to get (good) information online. I'm 34 and been lifting for 2 years now. it's been rough and it barely looks like I lift, but it's better than being obese.

    There'll always be pepole ahead of you, in muscle, social standing, money, etc.
    There's a guy who started working out at 12 yrs old and will always mog you, there's a guy who was born with god-tier genetics and there's a guy who was born with rich parents living life on easy mode.
    And while they all may be "ahead" of you, in muscle, money, whatever, the one thing that they will never be ahead in is being (you).
    Learn to take pride in who you are, love yourself, your stuggles and successes are things unique to you.

    You can't expect the same level of progress when you are on HRT, don't worry sweetie

    Comparing yourself to others is a waste of time. There will always be people that mog you in any aspect, and there will always be people that you mog. And it just doesn't fricking matter.

    What you should be doing is comparing yourself today to yourself yesterday. Are you better today than you were yesterday in some way? Good, that's called progress. Keep going. Are you worse? Figure out why and fix it.

    Now stop being a whiny b***h. Demoralizer threads are for homosexuals.

    You know I have this thought occasionally as well, I got decently fit in like 2 years and if I had started at like 18 my 20s may have been much better.
    But on the other hand the main reason I didn't lift back then was because I had a string of hot gfs that made me think I didn't really need to be all that buff, I was never fat or anything so I considered myself healthy and hot enough since I was obviously still landing girls, some of which stuck around for years, had a good friend group as well.
    One of the reasons I started lifting in the first place is all of that being more or less gone, and once I got fit I can't go back to how I was. I look better than I ever have, but part of me wonders what's the point if my reflection in the mirror is all I have to show for it.
    idk why I'm even blogposting, don't get stuck in the past anons, it's not a fun place to be, even it it was fun when it happened.

    Did some gym stuff in HS, then started in earnest after turning 30.

    Focus on the improvements you make, not those of others.

    30 year old beginners do it by having more wisdom (supposedly, clearly IDK in this case) than zoomers. The best time to start is now, always. Focus on what you can do EACH AND EVERY DAY. If you focus too much on the future, you're going to have anxiety. If you live in the past, you're going to feel depressed. If you don't want to live a life of regret, then live today - it's all you CAN do.

    You think that's bad? I started lifting when I was 16 to help me cope with schizophrenia, and I even started getting pretty big, and then I became homeless, lost all of my gains, lost my will to carry on, and then recovered anyway but never gained the urge back to start lifting until recently.

    I went from decently lean muscle, slowly building up to dl 150lb, bench 125, and squat 145 to skeleton who can't squat 45 more than 3 times. I'm not fricking joking, I cannot squat 45lbs. I can see the fricking BONES IN MY FRICKING ARMS, I CAN FEEL THE BONES IN MY SPINE

    Yep. Glad I started late teens so I ACTUALLY get to play the "haha I look early 20s still" while being closer to 40 than 30. At least you didn't wait til late 30s or not start at all.
