Is anyone else embarrassed over the fact they work out?

>live with parents
>only one in my family who lifts or diets
>they always make fun of me for having huge protein shakes and eating chicken all the time, try to explain to them the concept of bulking and macros but it all seems to go over their head
>whenever I exercise in my room, I always immediately stop if someone walks by
>always feel a bit ashamed whenever I leave the house to go to the gym, while my other siblings go out on dates or parties, the only time I ever leave the house is to go to the gym
>feel embarrassed whenever I eat alone at 10pm

I feel like such a tryhard gymcel, do I have anxiety or something? How do I learn to stop giving a shit

    Have more experiences in life. Know more people. You shouldn't be embarrassed about working out, but you should be embarrassed to be a loser who works out.

        this. Milk is absorbed almost completely and if anything it leaves a sort of stool-cement in the intestine that makes really hard single peace poops. If milk is giving you diarrhea you are not absorbing all of it (aka lactose intolerance)

      I used to be like this, now I just pose if someone comes to watch. Its way more fun to make them look useless and to show your progress than it is to be shy and not show the body you're building.

      Your body is not properly digesting all that milk, stop drinking so much you quite literally are not getting the nutritional benefits from it you think you are.

      Or start buying lactose free milk/ adding lactase to your milk.

    Iktf OP. Move out from your parents, then have the absolute peace of a home gym.

    It's incredible. And I pretend as if I don't even work out with anyone I know even though it's absolutely obvious I do workout, but I never ever talk about it even though at my apartment all I do is cook extremely cleanly and lift heavy ass weights up and down without ever skipping a single workout. Just leave me alone and let me lift heavy objects and put them down in a repeated manner by myself.

        >Lie to win at the game.

        How about I just stop doing all of that and not play the game at all. Reject the game altogether and play your own game. They're losing their own game they have a chance at, but they'll never win the game you created.

        That's the real basedpill. Don't bend over backwards to do what you need to do to win at someone else's game. That's a slave-mentality. Create your own game. Make it so hard to get into that once they're in and they see the rules that are impossible to play by, they'll want to stop playing altogether. Then you can laugh in their face. They lost twice, and you've not even begun to stop winning.

        I'm firmly convinced the point of life is to leverage that melon sized bunch of wrinkly brain matter. That's where the key to all of this is. Nothing else matters besides the stuff you experience in your head. Everyone is telling you you're a piece of shit? That infuriated rage you respond with is the truth. Work with that. Make it known what you want. You feel like you're a smart motherfucker? Show it to the world. Go out there and make it known that you're smart. You think you're a hot guy? That's the truth.

        Go out there and manifest what's in your head.

          At one point I would not have believed this, but experience has shown me that delusion is more often the reality once enough people believe it, as it becomes the foundation for all other behaviour and is legitimised that way.

      Clearly she is right. You're a fucking pussy. You have no balls whatsoever. She is doing her feminine duty by shitting all over gays like you. The male-female dichotomy is one of intense passion, struggle, and is ultimately a war just as much a contest of compassion. She WANTS you to be manly and if you were then she would reward you profusely for it, but your mentality is so fucking weak that it would be shameful of her NOT to shit all over you for it. You can't even handle a woman walking by you while you're lifting big heavy shit. Even if you look like Hercules you're still a mental midget and she knows this. Women will identify your weakness and exploit it all the time because they don't want you to be weak. No balls bro. She wants to know that you're secure and doing alright because you're bigger, stronger, and smarter than her. If you're not doing alright then how are you going to give her a decent life or care for her babies? You gotta fix this shit yesterday my man. You gotta get your mentality on point or she will ruthlessly bully you until she leaves you. Her bullying you is her giving you a chance to stick up for yourself and not be such a bitch every single time she does it. She wants you to fight back and tell her to fuck off that you're doing your thing. You're reactionary like a woman, men don't do that.

      Hope this helps

    Spend less time and energy lifting and more time and energy not being poor so you can leave your parents house and live your life however you want without them influencing you. Being a gymcel while living with your parents is completely and utterly fucking retarded. Stop being fucking poor first and then make your decisions on how you want to live your life. It's downright shameful and embarrassing to be whatever age you are (guessing 20s) and spend so much of your life force energy on picking up heavy things and putting them down when you dont have your own house. Even if you bought a fucking van and lived in that then that would be respectable and noble, but this is just shameful my dude. You'll feel a lot better when you move out. Whatever you think you'll gain in monetary value saving money living with them is nothing compared to the peace of mind you'll have knowing you graduated into true manhood. Quit being a boy and become a man. Surprised nobody else in the thread said it already

        And yet you're the one that feels shame because you live with your parents and can't properly express yourself like you want to. You're a fucking boy, not a man. You have all of that money and yet it means absolutely fuck all because you have no peace of mind or security. Your parents could literally kick out at at any second at any time.with an eviction notice and treat you like shit constantly if they wanted to. And fine, maybe you want to keep your house. Did you even think for a fucking second to check out your options for alternative living? Probably not. Because yet again, you spend all of your time and focus on picking up heavy things. Your priorities are all fucked up. You can own a house with no money, no credit, and without having to qualify for a loan, that also pays you to live there, but even if I told you step by step how to do it, you wouldn't, because you're a boy and not a fucking man. If you're 27 and you're living with your parents when you have other options and the means to do it then you're a fucking loser. Bottom line

            Clearly you do not love it there and are attempting to justify it by saying you do so that you can stay there without having to leave, even if it is a lie. Motherfucker just put in a couple of weeks worth of work and get paid to live in a house while you rent hack it and have people pay you to live there. You can control your environment and be the head of household. You can unabashedly do your thing while having college kids shell money out to you. You do this once and you get paid to live in a house. You do this 2 or 3 times and you will have a passive income stream that brings money in every single month and you can rent a house as large or small as you want and the tenants will pay for your expenses. Then you can do whatever you want and not be a loser still leeching off of mommy and daddy. If you're content to be a 27 year old boy making excuses and justifications as to why they don't control their own space then that's your own retarded decision I guess. Priorities motherfucker.
