What motivates you /fit/? What pushes you when your mind is trying to run you for a loop and say "well, I think you deserve to rest/eat a treat now"?
I don't need motivation to lift weights; I love lifting weights, it's the only thing I do that makes me really happy.
As far as work and college go, I'm motivated by the fear of failure. I work hard because I know that if I fail at something the self-loathing won't dissipate.
The idea that fate guides me and I have no actual say in what will happen to me. Therefore fate will guide me on the proper path to greatness
I found my first and last gf. I loved her, /fit/, and she loved me. God, I was so happy, I thoiught I found the one, I wanted to marry her I swear to God I did. I was with her for two years, which is a bit of a feat because she was a little mentally wacky, but I put up with it because I fucking loved this girl, because she was my everything, she completed me, We made eachother happy. I was completely and utterly devoted to this girl, /fit/.
Then, her fucking tumblr friend convinced her that she was some stupid fucking gender that doesn't exist. It grew to consume her, /fit/. She said it was the most important thing in her life. She cut her hair and started insisting that I use They Them pronouns. I told her this was all kind of ridiculous, and maybe she should slow down with all of it? She accused me of not caring about her. She started fighting with me, the relationship went south, and she broke up with me, /fit/. The girl who was my whole world for a good portion of my life fucking left me.
Aside from a short fling, I've been single since. I decided for myself, fuck it. She was not my only chance to be happy. There will always be others who are better for me, who won't break my heart. I will find a girl who fits, /fit/.
The trouble is I'm a chubby fucker. While it's not impossible to find love when you're fat, it's really hard, because the girl who's right for you might not want to date a fat guy, and you honestly can't fault them for that.
So I'm going to get strong and become Bear Mode/Strong Fat (I don't think at this point in my life I can diet, I've been eating big all my life, maybe later when I'm out of college and less stressed). My ideal gf is a qt3.14 nerdy Mexican grill, and I want to be big enough to carry her around effortlessly. Plus, I want to be big and strong so that people don't feel like they can fuck with me anymore, I got bullied alot in middle and highschool and kind of have an inferiority complex tbqh fam.
I found a girl last year and she saved me bruh. Shes really into fitness and I got up at 5 am to go workout with her. I was having terrible chest pains and I was 320lbs probably 50% body fat or more (currently 291 around 30%) and she still wanted to go out with me. Granted she's not exactly instagram fitness chick but shes in a lot better shape than I.
I lift for many reasons now. To lose weight, to look and feel better, and just to be strong as fuck (Bearmode master race). As much as I try to convince myself that I do it all for me in the end I can't help it, one of the reasons I lift is for her, we inspire each other and we share our little victories with one another. I think I found the one brehs.
You lost her the minute she started getting into all that tumblr bs, you're better without her whether or not you feel that way now. You're gonna find someone who is head-over-heels for you one day and I know that because you're here. You want to better yourself and you're doing something about it - not many people these days actually 'walk the walk'. We're gonna make it man, it's gonna be tough but it'll pay off I promise - take it a day at a time.
