    Because I used to be a loser bugman and I realized that my life would never amount to anything if I kept it up.
    So I hit the books and starting lifting.
    Life has been far from perfect since, but I'm a hell of a lot better off than I once was.

    I lift because i am convinced that i am much better than 95% of all people, however my bubble of delusional fantasies would burst if i kept staying a skinny loser which is why i had to start lifting so i had something to back up my confidence with. Now that i am significantly wider than before its even easier for me now to keep living in my fantasy where everyone except for me is a fucking subhuman

    This is not being done by accident. In many of these cases, the toxic product is more expensive to produce than the non-toxic product. The government will subsidize additional tax dollars to make the more poisonous industrial product viable over the natural alternative.

    This is not an accident, this is done intentionally to castrate you. Because they hate you and they fear you. They fear how excellent and perfect you could become. They fear beauty. They fear goodness. They fear the light of god.

    You waking up naturally in the morning, next to your wife ... feeling no joint pain, no tiredness, full of vitality and happiness and plans for the day - somehow this is the thing that terrifies the modern bugman bureaucrat the most.

    So at the base level: you should lift to have access to an unpoisoned, joyous experience of being alive (you can legit feel orgasmically good and healthy 24/7, just from being alive).

    At the higher level: you must lift for vengeance against ugliness - and for the coming day when we mass execute everyone who is responsible for the modern state of the world. Millions of office drone bureaucrats must die.

No drugs, no booze, - just feeling real fucking good being in your body. Near religious levels of wonderment and joy.

      My dad died of lard related complications when I was a little kid so I have always had an underlying fear and hatred of fatness. I am scared of being fat and then dying.

      For a long time I was so angry with him but I've forgiven him now. I didn't know what happened. Turns out he because massive because he was being physically and mentally abused by my mom, and she was also sabotaging his diet. I only figured it out because she tried to do it to me.

    When I first asked my wife out, over a decade ago, I had a dad-bod and dressed like shit, was very much the stereotypical "le awkard funny class clown" archetype in the early 2010s. She was a model. Not only did she say yes, but she was very warm and friendly to me in a non-patronizing way throughout our entire date. The story of how we went from that date, to best friends, to a full-on relationship, to now married is pretty long so I'll spare you that.

    But, I'll never forget how she treated me when most other people (including people she was friends with) did not treat me well, and it really inspired me to get my shit together. So at the very least she deserves a husband who she can brag about. The fact that she's the one in her friend group, or at social events with "the hot husband" feels pretty fucking good too.

    I never took gym seriously when I had it in with women. When they gave me the time of day, I was slim and could look good in what I wanted to wear. Ever since I lost that, I've taken gym more and more seriously.
    I'm at my strongest now, but not at a level I can be that proud of, but I'm at an upwards trend.
    I'm looking more and more better and getting more stronger.
    I'm lifting at the moment for many reasons.
    The foundation of the reasons is to look better. No matter what, that's the invisible goal, but I focus on getting stronger when I do go.
    I'd love to be able to be approachable with either my level of strength or how good I look.

    >Why do you IST?
    Because this body is one of the few things you are guaranteed to be confined by for the rest of your life. No matter what you do, no matter how you live, your body is one of the few things you truly own.

    I am disabled and as such will never "make it" in the sense that the people on this board use that term. I will never be strong, I will probably never even reach what is considered average. But I can be better than I am now, and that's really all that matters.
    Part of growing up disabled is getting to know other disabled kids. I have met children that probably had about a year or two left before their lungs or heart would give out. I have met kids that had muscle cramps so severe they couldn't communicate properly (or really at all). I have met a kid that had such issues standing outside of his wheelchair that he usually fell down within a few minutes. And I realized that yeah I am disabled, but those kids have it much worse. The kid with the muscle cramps would give everything to be the kid in the wheelchair. The kid in the wheelchair would give everything to be me, and who am I to just look at healthy people with jealousy when relatively speaking I have it so much better?

    A healthy body is a gift that you probably don't know the true value of, because you have never realized what it means to no longer have it.
    Next time you walk up some stairs, know that you are doing something I wish I easily could do.
    If you are fat, I encourage you, lose that fat. You will feel so much better after, in ways I can't explain unless you experienced it. If you are weak, try to get stronger. If you have limited range of motion, stretch. You have a lot of time left in this flesh vessel, might as well make it a decent one.

    Cause around last christmas i weighed 205 pounds and had weird stomach pain combined with having a hard time breathing from being a fat fucking piece of shit. I also found out i have diverticulosis. So i started eating like 40 grams of fiber a day. Some how without even trying i lost like 20 pounds. I also had a shoulder injury and went to physical therapy and started working out for real after. Now i got a four pack and i weigh 168 pounds and im learning the gym routine bros. It also helped that i had photos from my early 20s to look at and say. I wanna get back to that. I had the abs the arms etc. I just said even if i fucking die and injure every single part of my body. Id fucking flail around on the ground like a slug or some shit to get to the gym. Combine that with watching rich piana videos.
