>>31054718 i was nearly 300 lbs and 6' at that time nad i asked out this cute girl at exchange program she told me i am too fat and ugly and asked if i am joking or something like that i promise myself this is the last time i am mocked because of my look --fast forward to 2 years and lots of deadlifts later 190 lbs 6'3'' and pretty jacked, improved facial aesthethics, full beard i ran into the cutie at a mall and the moment she saw me i could feel jealousy flowing from her to me. she said ''wow anon you look very big but in a different way you put on muscle, wanna hang out later at my place?'' one week later we meet up and i fuck the revenge outta her and never called her back
I've never been too fat, but I was a little chubby in high school. I got in better shape in college due to being more active, not out of any conscious decision to lose weight. I graduated in May last year and began a new, exciting life as a drone in a cube for 9-10 hours each day shortly after. Though I thoroughly enjoy the work I do, the inactive part of it has lead to me gaining around 50 pounds over the course of 9 months without me even realizing I was getting fat. Last week a little kid in Safeway called me fat. Not to my face, I overheard the little shit tell his mom. I've been rejected by girls, I've been picked on middle school, but never has my ego been more destroyed than by that little bastard calling me fat. I went home and ordered a stationary bike. It arrives tomorrow. I live in an area that is no good for running or biking, and my work hours really hinder my ability to go to a gym and still get a good nights sleep, so I'll be waking up at 4:30 and cycling every goddamn morning for now on. I will be a new man the next time that little shit sees me in the store. Fucking prick.
>>31054926 If you keep fat in your chest its gonna be there until you are in a pretty low BF, they will go away as long as it isn't gyno thought, I was a former fatass with more boobs than the regular female.
>>31054840 >I couldn't fit in any of my pants that weren't sweats. When I sat down I had to unzip my pants or at least unbutton them. To be fair, I used to do this even when I was like 5'11 140lbs. Pants are uncomfortable.
It was more a process than a singular moment, but the thing that made me realize how fat I had actually become was a candid photo from a wedding I attended. Up until that point, I wasn't striving to lose weight because I didn't realize how fucking fat I actually was.
I'm sure a lot of fatties are in denial like I was. >"Well, my stomach doesn't hang to my legs like those people on TLC, so I must not be fat!"
>>31055281 Yes, but staying hydrated and having lotion will make it more pliant. However, if your skin has stretched too far, you'll still of excess skin. It's like having a rubber band and keeping it stretched around a large diameter pole. When you finally remove it from the pole, it'll never go down to it's original elasticity.
>I was just an unhealty breathless kind of fatty, not very Big thought. >Friends sign me up for a non-competitive 5 miles run. >After 1 mile the older people (70 - 80 heads old) of my town start to surpass me >70 - 80 heads old >I was 22 (5 years ago NEVER MORE Now I'm a good /fit/izen.
>>31054718 At the age of 17 I was coming in close at the 300 lbs mark, Then one day Dad has a massive heart attack, no warnings no discomfort just no more dad, now he wasn't the healthiest of people but he wasn't completely unhealthy, but dead at the age of 50. That alone scared me enough to drop 100lbs
>>31054718 growing up, realising what life is and what i want from it healthy environment, started hanging out with people that lived healthier and worked out, a lot of old friends also changed their lifestyle. it's easier when you have someone you can talk with, who can give you advice
Was fat and tried to do as much cardio as I could, but was getting nowhere because I couldn't control my eating. One day I decided I was sick of being fat, I have been fat for almost my entire life, so I just stopped myself and only ate 3 meals a day at first, then it got worse... I would eat no more then 500 calories a day and eventually I got tired and didn't leave my house and just played mine craft all day alone. Life was shit, but i was loosing weight, but at the time I didn't really realise the difference. It was until I went back to school and everybody was shocked, because at this time I was a fucking skeleton. I have no mass, I could hardly pick up 5KG, I was seriously close to death or something.
I hated my body still. I looked fucking horrible and had a disgusting hourglass figure and still looked fat because I had no muscle.
Then I found /fit/. Before I previously browsed /g/, and I assumed /fit/ was for chads and homosexual, but I decided to go on fit and eventually I read the sticky. The sticky is what made me start lifting. I read the section "starvation is not okay" and was in tears. I didn't really know what I was doing, and I couldn't handle that I just fucked myself over big time. So then I started eating more, bought myself a barbell with no weights, at first I couldn't even fucking lift the bar and was extremely discouraged, but I started doing compound lifts with literally no more weight then 20KG, and eventually one day I noticed I could add more weight, so I did. One thing lead to another and I eventually was lifting an okay weight, but I was following a self made routine, one thread later and I started SS and 4 months later I am squatting 2pl8.
I just subconsciously started making better choices and stopped liking most candy and fizzy drinks (except dark chocolate and Reeces cups). I didn't even notice that I'd lost weight until other people started making remarks
>>31054718 breaking up with gf being fat slob in senior year of uni realize that hooking up would never get easier than it was right then (uni sloots and what not) realize that job interviews coming up would immediately judge me on my physique -> unqualified fatty vs able bodied youngster
I'm gonna share my life with you guys. First time posting btw.

I did magic mushrooms and had one of those ego death experiences. Weighed about 260lbs and down to 200. Basically I was depressed after fuckin heartbreak and gained 60 pounds. Realized that I'm the only one that can make myself happy. And that's all you need. Had some insight about myself, the good and the bad, see what I had to change. Next day got myself to the gym. Started taking better care for myself, got a job, got a car, got some friends, and lost some weight. Just believe in yourself /fit/ cause no one else is.
Hit 295 Senior year of High School, played sports everyday up until then so I justified eating so damn much during my younger years. Took sports off my senior year cuz of dat dere senioritis and kept the same eating habits. Worked at Red Lobster and gained weight, one day went to the gym and realized the number that was on it. Over the next three years in uni I've been working out and eating better, got down to 229 before winter break but binge ate over break and blew back up to like 250, so starting my first serious cut to drop down to like 185 by this fall semester.
asked out my dream girl sophomore year in high school. Got rejected, found /fit/ after I made a crybaby bitch thread on /b/ became exactly what I wanted to be. Dated said dream girl after achieved six pack and ended up leaving her cause new inflated ego. Now getting fat again, probably will just kill myself this time.
I was just never educated about it growing up. The day I discovered /fit/ and read the sticky was the best day of my life. I finally knew why you get fat and how to actually change it. Knowing the actual science on it is what gave me the strength. Went from ~290 to ~175 in a year.
girl I liked said she couldn't ever imagine liking me because I was fat So I lost 100lbs over the next 6-7 months, took up boxing too. Went from 270 to 168lbs Then I took a trip abroad with some money I had saved up for no reason other then to just go and have fun. She tried to convince me to take her with me, implying it would be more fun to take a girl all alone to another country. The satisfaction of rejecting her at that point was like drinking water after being thirsty for years.
Let me say to any of you that are overweight reading this. We are all just standing at the edge of that cliff, wondering if we will ever jump. Well I had a bitch push me off, so I caught myself, climbed back up and flipped her off.
>broke up with gf because college >consistently gaining weight for the past year >have never been satisfied with how I looked >doctor mentioned that my bmi put me in an area where I'm at a higher risk for diabetes/heart disease/ect
The final thing to get me though happened when I was showing a couple months ago. I noticed a bunch of red/purple streaks on the inside of my thighs. I thought it was some weird rash but they didn't itch or anything. I looked it up online. They turned out to be stretch marks.
Fucking stretch marks
I realized that no 20 year old guy should have stretchmarks for having fat thighs, so I decided needed to make a change.
My first and only ever gf which I acquired at 21 had trust issues. She would tell me she loved in letters and over the phone, but for some reason, she couldn't bring herself to tell me in person.
I'm a pretty decent looking lad, so I just assumed it was because I was chubby. I know subconsciously and consciously that she was just insecure and didn't want to let her guard down, but half-way convinced myself that it was because I wasn't /fit/
After a year of lifing, weight loss, and a new wardrobe I started getting attention from lots of grolls anf it was a real turning point in my life, as pretentious as that sounds
former fat friend of mine was at a mall with this girl and laughed at a fat man walking past them. The girl he was with was confused and said, but OP you are just as fat as that guy. he developed a eating disorder and became a weak skinnyfag. but his confidence is on top and he has a good sixpack
>went through break up >was skinny fat before >suddenly gained around 20 lbs >hated self >met a group of people from r9k >we talk >theyd call me fat jokingly >met some fit bros in there as well >wanted to be them >they'd motivate me, be proud of me when I did minor improvements >started to seriously commit >look healthier, take care of self, depression is so much better >they tell me how proud they are >don't call me a fat ass anymore
My wife. She loved me and married me for who I was, even though I was chubby. Then I started to get fat and one day I saw her crying and praying that God would keep me safe and look after my health because I was gettig too big and unhealthy.
That hit me. I had an amazing woman who kept herself healthy and looking great for me. How could I be such a selfish asshole and not even consider doing the same for her.
I started immediately. Hardcore. Just water, lots of fresh veggies, lean protein and a small fruit post workout. I am now down 30 pounds and back to chubby (like when we got married).
I'm not stopping there though. After being on this board for a while, I started to love this community. I enjoy lifting weights and pushing my limits. I enjoy having control over my own life and saying "fuck you" to junk food . The difference is showing but I am going all the way. Going to cut to about 10% bodyfat and then cleanbulk and cut again as needed.
Doing it for her. Doing it for me. Doing it for the beautiful principles that /fit/ stands for.
>>31061428 Thank you. That said, I am not posting any updates on FB or pictures or anything. I should have been doing this all along. I am an adult. I am supposed to be disciplined and hold myself accountable. I don't even feel proud. Nothing to feel proud of (yet). Instead, I feel deep shame that I ever even let myself get that way. I am going to make it. I already took my before pic at my heaviest. When I get down to 10% bodyfat, I will post a comparison in a thread here with a deeply sincere thank you to you all and as proof that I have taken your philosophies to heart. You guys are true bros and an inspiration me.
>>31054926 I don't remember how long I've had them but in 9th grade, one of my snake 'friends' at the time slapped them upwards and since then I really fucking hate when any one touches me for any reason ( other than a handshake)
>>31058021 I feel those feels too. First relationship and the break up from that relationship taught me many things. Perhaps the most important lesson was that I didn't have to be drunk for girls to like me or find me attractive. That helped me out more than anything, even lifting
>>31054718 The fact that I look absolutely appalling shaved.
I like having a beard, but if I'm going to have to shave for one reason or another then I at least don't want to look like a chinless hobgoblin.
Once I finish with my batch of chicken chili in the fridge sometime in the next couple of days I'm going full IDGAF cut - 6 scoops of protein per day plus some green vegetables and eggs and that's fucking it; at this point I don't even care about my gainz and just want to lose the damn weight.
>>31061807 Also my face looked fucking awful in my high school grad photo. I was bloated and had rings around my eyes. I looked older than I thought I should be. I thought I actually looked somewhat attractive in my school photo only 4 years earlier (you guessed it, grade 9) so I wanted that back and more.
In high school I was a football player and played Offensive line. I was a big guy young, 5'10 when I was 14, and already started lifting, just some casual shit though. Once I joined the team, after freshman year, I got moved up to varsity and began lifting seriously and running college level programs (School was a powerhouse).
4 years later, I was 6ft standing at 300lbs, lotta fat but lotta muscle, I had high stats at that weight. I played the position well enough that I got state 1st team, however, I wasn't tall enough for any D1 programs. So, tons of offers from lower tier programs, however only a few were full ride, some were half, but what I wanted was to go to a D1 school. I was still hesitant to say no to coaches.
2 weeks prior to signing day, I got really drunk one night, ate like the fat fuck I was, and for kicks checked my weight scale >340lbs At that moment I decided, no, I'm gonna lose the weight, get fit, and focus on school. I declined all offers I had, and began the journey.
>>31054718 The fact that running for the bus wore me out, I never wore anything short or light because I was so scared about my mantits. The fact that I moved into a new course with actual females in it and I wanted to gain their attention.
Began running and felt dead within minutes. I knew this wasn't right. Kept at it until the DOMS left and the shin splints stopped.
>overweight >sit around all day eating snacks >maybe I should get into shape >maybe I should get a job >maybe I should get cancer >got cancer now >death chance extremely high >didn't have to get into shape >didn't have to get a job >eating greasy shit right now
I came and went like the smallest dick in the biggest pussy, see you m8s
>>31054718 I pretty much gained 5lbs a year for 10 years. Made some half-assed efforts to lose weight, but continued gaining until I realised that I'd just reached 'obese'. That label was the limit for me, I decided I'd never get to that point again. I'm 20lbs away from it now and I intend to keep going until I'm at least in the middle of 'normal'.
Its crazy how visibly fat people can get. Overweight is seen as being skinnyfat. By the time you stop being shaped like a human being you're already beyond morbidly obese.

Once I have some extra cash I'll go get back into fighting. It feels good feeling strong again.
>>31054718 Once I stared myself at a mirror with my shirt off and realized how disgusting I was. That day was 4 months and a half ago. Went from 98kg to 81, now I don't see much progress on the weight, but feel leaner, is that normal?
A feel i know. Not a hamplanet, but i've got more chub than I'm happy with. I still have sex pretty regularly but its always with 3-6/10s and i spaghetti with anyone hotter, even if I'm in bed with them, because i don't feel hot enough

Never again will I be called the fatboy. Never again will I be the second choice for a woman. Never again will I be weak. I am the alpha male.
i was fat my first two years of college and transferred to a new school bc of money issues and i didn't want to be known as fat anymore, so i spent that summer before starting my new school losing weight. i was just really sick of huffing and puffing up a hill and not wearing flattering clothes.
Got on good combo of medicine and became myself again and the weight started dropping off...but it is hard as fuck to be fairly fit most of your life and gain the kind of weight I did/not really move much for a few years and then be active and leave your house again...like being in your 20s and have a hard time walking a block was weird as hell....
>>31054718 Reached 296lbs at the height of 5'7" (inb4 manlet) was on antidepressants so really easy to ignore a lot of personal feelings about myself. Get home, look in the mirror and realize just how much I hate myself. Browsed /b/ for the longest time see the /fit/ link and decided to give it a try. Read the sticky several times, make a diet and exercise plan. In one year lost 100 lbs, got off antidepressants. Been going since 2013, glad I found this place and hope to keep getting better.
>>31054718 Ended up going on the machinist diet inspired by one true lord Christian Bale, which was one apple a day and black coffee for a month or more. Became a slightly skinny fat skelly. Then went to gym to lose extra fat. Started lifting, realised I had lost any strength I had, now a year later making some gains.
My dad's about 50yo and his eating habits, general stubbornness and a couple of medical scares convinced me that he's about to die soon. In my culture, it is expected for the son to jump in the dugged grave to lay the father to rest. My 330 lbs past self would never be able to do that, and this would be very shameful for me and my family.
So my primary decision to get thin is because I want to be able to properly put my father in his grave.
It was so I could become qt and get laid. So I got skinny, met up with a bunch of people, hit it off with a bunch of people, and had a bunch of freakish events pop up that blue balled the whole situation.
After a year, I realized I was miserable and still not getting laid so I turned back into DYEL status. I'm just overweight on the BMI scale now but it's not as bad as it used to be.
I am 21, I suffer from chronic depression and anxiety. I started eating more and more and I am 210 now. I also used to suffer from anorexia when I was in an abusive relationship because he wouldn't let me eat in fear I would gain weight. Now I am not with him,i eat to feel better then throw it up because I feel horrible. I gained weight because of it. I tried exercise but it just makes me feel worse about myself. I actually need some advice.
>>31070093 You're mentally ill and we really can't help you with that.
The most important part of weight loss isn't exercise, though; it's all about your eating habits.
You don't have to be anorexic to lose weight. The only thing that has ever worked for me is eating low calorie foods that I enjoy. Count your calories and find distractions. If you don't go to school or work, then losing weight is a lot harder because you're not distracted.
>>31054718 lifelong obesity, a lot of depression, actually didn't have anything to do with my being obese
During a period where I had suicidal thoughts (wasn't actually suicidal but the thoughts popped up often enough) I signed up for mental help. After I heared it would take 7 months before I'd get my application talk I figured I have to change my life now whatever I can or I won't be alive in 7 months. So I grabbed my balls and just started. 7 months later I was 20kg down and that was the start of the rest of the weightloss
Still struggling with depression, but havn't had suicidal thoughts for 3 years now.
As a child, food was alsways a sign of love for me. Our apartment was a mess because my mum wouldn´t clean anything up. She regularly beat the shit out of me for everything false I did. When I was 20, one week after my finals, I moved out from my mobidly obese (~230kg) mums apartment with about 80kg at 159cm. I stopped eating because she wouldn´t talk to me as she was angry with me because she felt I had left her alone. She couldn´t walk, wash dishes, wash clothes. Anything. I dropped to 75 kg in a very few time. I keep losing weight since then because I´m afraid to become such a stupid, self-righteous fatfuck like her. It scares the shit out of me.
It was all completely natural since I left my parents' home. It turns out my mom was a fucking gains goblin constantly discouraging me from doing physical activity and buying all kind of sweets and cake. As soon as I started planning my own meals and running everywhere it was all natural.
Fucking bitch gave me a sweet food addiction I'm still fighting against after 5 years though. I cannot have snacks around because I completely lose control around them, I've gone as far as gulping a whole box of 6 donuts and a big bag of doritos in one sitting, and I'm now starting to have control over portion sizes and stop eating when I'm satisfied instead of cleaning my plate like my parents (both fatasses) always forced me to.
Food addiction is fucking real, and it's horrible. Please encourage recovering fatties, and make those that still haven't started their fit journey to look for help.
>>31070594 I know this struggle. Love you mom, you were awesome, but since I've started living on my own and buying my own groceries I've lost 40 lbs no joke. She meant well but my family's eating habits are terrible.
> 6'0 230lbs as skinny fat >couldn't bench 25 lb dumbells > no job > never had girlfriend(had weird sexually related situations as a child can't say im a virgin) > hated myself > video games, books, anime, any form of escape i could find, never turned to drugs or alcohol though(thank god)
My brother started working out, and he never suggested I work out, but he always hinted I should and he would help. After first browsing /pol/, it made me realize how degenerate I was, since I've pushed myself to become better. Found /fit/ shortly afterwards.
>6'0 184 lbs >bench 110 dumbells, squat 275, deadlift 315 >hotel frontdesk >realized getting worked up over women is pointless >still resent myself, self pity is gone, ive accepted the fact im generally a terrible person >realized hobbies weren't pathetic means of escape, drinking and hanging with people is overrated by our mainstream culture

>tfw still 5'9 manlet while friends all got 6'+ >at least I still have my personality r-right /fit/?
It wasn't from negative "motivation" from /fit/ I can tell you that much. Acting like heavy people are retarded and infuriating to you is not what you do to create a future where ppl are in shape and happy together.
One fat friend of mine who lost weight to this day carries hate with him because of how so much teasing and disrespect just randomly stopped because of his weight loss. Now he feels like most people are vain and only accept you for what you look like and its really hurt his ability to get close to people.
>>31054718 Was playing America's army at about 2am when I was about 14, My mom came down the stairs and said turn that computer off and loose some weight, I decided to make changes, 10 years later I have moved out and now I play call of duty and have developed diabetes
For me it was about looking good in a suit. The first of my highschool friends were getting married and we were all groomsmen. Looking at my friends that had kept themselves in shape post highschool/college and then looking at myself next to them, I felt like shit.
I vowed the next time I had to wear a suit for a wedding or some event I was going to wear it with some style. It worked pretty good to motivate me.
>>31054718 >physical 2 months ago >bro you're 6'0", just turned 18, and 190 pounds >but doctor, im stronk like serbia >"no" >doctor, look at these gains though, you mirin? >"you see this chart? this is where you are, this is where you should be" >points to chart that indicates that im fat. >"no"
Later reconnect with high school QT who gave me my first fuck in freshman year, she's now 9/10 instead of 7/10. I've lost 10 pounds in the last 10 months, but everyone knows girls dont care about the body. >2015 >still thinking girls give a shit about how buff you are. >have fun fucking sluts and being a vagina vibrator.
>>31054718 One day you'll look at yourself in the mirror and all your self-hatred will come bubbling to the surface. In your broken state you awaken an ambition. Who's in control but you? Get off your ass and move.
I swear becoming /fit/ is turning into a curse rather than a blessing, but I'll get into that later.
Basically I woke up one day and finally realized how much of a fat piece of shit I really was. I had spent years and years telling myself that I was fine the way I was, as I had a girlfriend and everything was cool. Well besides being unable to do virtually anything because I was nearly 400 pounds. That same day I decided to come to the board I've never been on in my 7 years of being on this hellhole of a site, /fit/. I gave the sticky a good read over two times to ensure I understood everything and started to browse /fit/ on a daily basis from then on, learning all the le epik memes, browsing FPS threads to stay motivated and generally having a good time being with people who want to make it. Mind you this all started 6 months ago and I just crossed over to 297 yesterday. I'm looking pretty good in clothes now at least, and I'm getting plenty of compliments from friends and family alike.
So here is where the whole curse thing comes into play. As I was pretty much fatasfatass for 70% of my life, I've grown accustomed to having my opinions invalidated due to me being fat. As such, I didn't argue with anyone when they'd say shit that I knew for a fact was wrong as I feared being ridiculed by strangers and friends not wanting to talk to me. As I'm continuously getting fitter, my self-confidence has skyrocketed and I no longer have a fear of being ridiculed and I'm more inclined to correct people when they say shit that makes no sense. Basically I've become much more direct. Over the past few months though, my girlfriend and friends alike have been becoming increasingly distant as I've been more direct with them. It's to the point where they see me as an arrogant ass.
tl;dr Used to be fatasfatass with little to no backbone but now have a backbone and I'm driving away people I really care about what do
>>31076746 It may seem like a curse now, but later on in your life it will be a blessing. I think it's just a matter of getting used to. Your weight loss is commendable anon, don't let other people get in the way of your own self improvement. If your gf and friends can't stand a more confident you then they don't deserve you.
>>31076746 your friends are cowards, only the weak minded are distraught when subjected to honesty. I have a single friend, i don't need her. As you mentally age from being a child [essentially what you've described is indicative of an ignorant, comfortable, ideology that mothers and betas emotionally circle jerk into children and peers alike.}, as you become more confident your beliefs will change exponentially on a weekly basis. To be extremely fat at a young age means you've not experienced interaction without pity from those around you. If you were a jolly fat fuck, you're not anymore, be prepared to cast aside those who slow you down.
>>31054718 I realized i was trying to self distruct but couldnt just kill myself or run off because of family obligations, it just made life more unbearable to be fat. So basically the desire to not be in mental agony and the hope that it would help. So far it kinda has, it's like therapy to run and lift to music that makes you feel like god. Lost a lot of weight too.
>>31054718 one day i was out for a coffee with friends, when i got up my belly threw the table off and all the glasses fell off and broke. afterwards i walked 100m to my car and my back hurt. since then i lost 40kg. not a former fatty yet, but halfway there...
>>31054899 its good that you found a purpose, but don't do it for someone else, especially if you have a crush on a lady who gots u friendzoned, youll be dissapointment (but you ll get another gf , because you lost the weight)
>>31070594 So were you the youngest child in the family? I'm the oldest and I never felt pressure for food and stuff. My youngest sister though. She gets anything and its all hers. Her own room food clothes car etc Kinda funny. We just call it youngest syndrome
