find something that you can enjoy that gets you closer towards being fit, or honestly set SUPER FUCKING SPECIFIC goals and follow them no matter fucking what. if you don't set specific goals as well as not doing an activity you like you're gonna end up half-assing/giving up.

Then there's also the points you have about being depressed and wanting to sit inside playing guitar and video games. You can do things even though you aren't fit, just as you can be fit and feel like that. The best is not to hold off on doing stuff until you get fit, because there's really no reason to.

A lot of people do that with different things, such as girls in relationships go "its gonna be better when we get the baby" - no, it's gonna be the same but you're also gonna have a fucking baby. "wow this new pedal is gonna revolutionize my guitar playing" - yeah, you'll sound slightly different but a good song is still a good song, with or without the perfect fuzz, so don't wait for the perfect fuzz pedal to write that song.

going to the beach and having fun is going to be fun as long as you don't go there to get looked at by girls. I am by most standards a pretty good looking guy, i think, but I still have days where sitting inside playing video games and guitar is what i want to do. Sitting at the beach getting looked at by girls is fucking overrated. going outside doesn't get 10000% better when you look better if that's not really what you want to do either.

What I'm trying to develop is an excitement to work out; to wake up and not resent it. Right now, that's going well. I am looking forward to getting back to my Monday - Friday. I also picked up a few cheap pieces of equipment over the weekend. One is a sauna suit that I'm going to give a go. Ricky Hatton lost a fair bit of weight very quickly training in one, but obviously that guy was incredibly active. If I can't cope with it or don't feel it's worth it, I'll just give it to my friend or something like that. It was only a tenner. The second piece was a resistance band for warm-ups and isolated movements. Again, €5. If I don't need it, if it's not that useful, I'll learn that as I go.

I recognise that becoming healthier and fitter won't make my problems go away, and I still won't want to go for a walk on the beach or meet new people at a bar. But it's one less weight (pun not intended) off my shoulders, one I'm fed up of carrying. I want to move on to a different worry. I want to hate something else for a little while. When pain becomes stagnant, you know it's time for a change; you've hit a new low.

I see your point, I do, but don't get caught up in being fit before you start doing shit. Work to get fit and do stuff meanwhile. Don't go cocoon mode on me man :lol:

This is something I need to develop. Thanks for the support.

I'm still hangin' in there.

Standing shoulder press 80#,
Romanian deadlift 130#,
Squat 100#,
Bench press 110#,
Rows 140#.

Instead of doing pulldowns I've started using the "assisted pullup machine" which feels a lot harder but better at the same time. I feel a lot more of my back engaging. So anyway I'm now at about 100# on that.

I quit eating breakfast and I'm eating salads for lunch now too. Lost 8 pounds in the past two months. Woooo.

Going to buy some new weights for my home. What should I be looking for? Fixed dumbbells? Plates that can be changed? Round plates or hexagonal plates? What kind of barbell should I be looking at? What kind of weight should I be aiming for? I'm looking to get stronger, first and foremost, but I also would like to increase my metabolism and thus be able to maintain my current diet without gaining too much fat. Not sure if gaining strength as well as losing fat is possible. Some say it's possible, some say it's not. Either way I want to get stronger. I'm also doing cardio workouts and have lost fat. Even if I don't get that much stronger, my lifts will be improve and I will get fitter.

Hey mate!

Just want to clarify, when I say I want to get stronger, I want to get fitter by getting stronger. I recognise that, unless I start working properly on the three core lifts with heavy weights, I won't get that much stronger. Unfortunately, I can't do that at home. What I can do is use the core lifts, as well as other exercises, to get fitter, healthier and stronger, but with the focus on overall fitness rather than strength and powerlifting. Until I can join a gym, I can't imagine I'll be able to work on hitting high numbers. For now I'd just like to be able to have a balanced regime. I know some would disagree with my methods, and I respect that, but I get bored so easily. I want to be able to stay fit in my way. That includes working strength one day, cardio on another, and body building on another. I know they clash and I know I should be focusing on one aspect at a time, but as long as I'm excited each time I work out, I'm not restricted in any way, I'm losing fat, and I'm getting better at the lifts that I will be doing, I'm happy.

I started reading the Lean Gains site in vidret's original post and did as much internet research as I could on intermittent fasting. Lean gains guy says it does great things for your metabolism, insulin sensitivity, etc. but the research that's out there says it doesn't really do any of that, but as long as you eat 2 meals a day it doesn't do anything bad either. Who knows, could be super beneficial, but worst case it's just an easy way to eat at a deficit.

Day 2 wasn't bad and day 3 I didn't miss breakfast at all. I start to get hungry around 11 and eat lunch around 11:30. I seem to have more energy in the morning too.

Even doing that I didn't see any weight loss until I hit the salad bar instead of the cafeteria for lunch, when I promptly lost 10 pounds and promptly gained 2 back. I'm still at 318, so 8 pounds is freakin nothing. I have been slowly getting stronger over the year though so I'm sure my body composition has improved more than that little bit indicates.

I could probably lose another ten pounds by shaving my beard, BUT AT WHAT COST???
