Guys give attention and precum if they see even a remotly attractive girl and spill spagetti all over the place if they do work up the guts to talk to them

Girls however can be alot cooler since they arent bound to a single attractive guy, another one will come along shortly

It's going to take some time.

I'm 38, was skinny fat and on my way to Otter. People only started noticing my gains after 6 months and I only started getting compliments after a year (including a winter in long sleeves so no one saw the improvements until Spring.

Still going. It's slower than the younger guys you see in the CBTs.

Do you think so? Ive hit 90/102 (yeah I know... 120clean tho) with 160/140 bs/fs and ropey technique and poor flexibility... Recently started drilling technique with sub 70% to focus on not pulling with arms, proper catch etc while working on mobility

Realistically with this approach for a few months how quickly do you think I'd see my classics go back up?

So 2-6ish @9, about 5% fatigue? I read the RTS manual once upon a time, don't really remember weekly/monthly fatigue accumulation or whatever off the top of my head. I remember that he recommneds six press and six lower slots per week as a baseline somewhere on the RTS forums too.

>fucked if I do, fucked if I don't
Only if it were to come down to those two options, which I'm 99.9999% sure isn't the case.

If you're directionless, it means you've not taken enough risks with yourself to find where you should be going. You should be branching out more into things that pique your interest and accept what the outcome of pursuing that might be.

If you're alone, it means you're not comfortable enough with yourself, and you either can't let people in enough because of that, and/or you refuse to put yourself out there.
>>
>>38849535
>If you're directionless, it means you've not taken enough risks with yourself

Yeah, that's me. I always do the safer thing, every time. I've never broken a bone or lost my wallet or cracked a tooth having fun, and I've never been in a fight. I feel like those are just things that are supposed to happen in a guy's life before he's 25 like me. Though in fairness I did leave a great paying job that didn't interest me at all a few months ago to pursue a career in programming, an interest I've had since I was a kid.

>If you're alone, it means you're not comfortable enough with yourself

Yeah, this. I'm basically in "run and lift until someone loves you" mode since I grew up fat and an currently recovering.

Overall, I guess I am one of those guys who is waiting for his life to actually start.

That's a start. What about outside your work and lifting. What are you doing for yourself?

>I guess I am one of those guys who is waiting for his life to actually start
Doesn't happen that way, senpai. Your life has started, and it's moving forward without you, so you need to either hop on that train or watch it go by from the platform
>>
On one hand, it's clear some males have a narrow view of masculinity (I know I wasn't the only one here called a faggot for liking poetry and literature).

On the other, masculinity is neither entirely subjective or objective, it is a socially constructed phenomenon that also has biological foundations.

College frat / meat head type is not masculine, he's dumb.

>>38849662
>That's a start. What about outside your work and lifting. What are you doing for yourself?

Well that's a question that fucked me up. I work PT as a cashier while I study programming at the college nearby. Average day is lift, class or work, study/readings from class, and then mostly nothing else. Shit post on 4chan, shit post on reddit, suck at Overwatch. Fuck.

>Your life has started, and it's moving forward without you, so you need to either hop on that train or watch it go by from the platform

She's pro-ana tho, it's entirely plausible that she also exercises for multiple hours every day and/or takes dangerous fat burners like sibutramine, the combination of which could realistically push her up to 12 pounds of real weight loss(although logically at least 2 pounds would definitely be glycogen depletion)

I saw similar from water fast. You lose a ton of weight first few days, mostly water that you regain. If you don't take in salt or electrolytes, you lose water weight fast. I lost like 7 or 8 lbs first 3 days and then between a half pound to full pound every day after. About 15 lbs in my 10 day fast, regained about half.

You also clear out stools from intestines, etc...

>>
>>38849482
>You DO digest the calories, if you eat a box of cookies and then go puke 30 minutes later you probably already digested the sugars

it depends largely on what you ate. sugary liquids digest in 20 minutes or so, but fatty foods take hours to digest. Chronic bulimics have very structured and layered binges, so they're able to puke it all out easily without digesting anything.

Another reason I can attest to this is that I'm a type 1 diabetic, and I can exactly see how many carbs have been digested by measuring my blood sugar. I've empirically tested most food combinations while binging, and most times my body absorbs 1/10th-1/20th of what I ate (keeping in mind that my body lacks amylin due to being diabetic, so food moves much faster from my stomach to my small intestine than it does in normal people)

>Bulimia is as much of a mental disease as anorexia, ask any doctor

I know how it's categorized, but as a person that fit all the criteria for being bulimic and after a year or so of CONSCIOUSLY doing it I stopped it one day just because I decided to, I can attest that categorizing it as a mental disease is an insult to people with actual mental diseases
>>
>>38849650
>Needing to puke to lose fat

no, it's more like needing to puke so you don't digest binges.
>>
>>38848726
so? what, does this box will make you fat, just eat less on next meal. That's it. Fuck. In what degenerate society we live that that caloric value of things is a bad thing. It's foods purpuose to supply us with calories. Get it dumbass
