Been cutting since May when I was 20%
Now I'm ~12%, goal is 10% at the end of next month.
From May til August I didn't have issues but suddenly I am hungry all the time despite weighing 20 pounds less and requiring less calories.
I'm only at a 500 calorie deficit. What gives?

That's a pretty apt description of what's currently happeneing. Except plus cigs and booze. Perhaps that's the trigger. While living alone I was able to budget my time, my money and able to actually do real work and take satisfaction from it. Now i just play video games in my room all day.
God, I need to find a job.

Different guy here, just withdrew from uni because of multiple false sexual assault charges, got kicked out of my fraternity and everything. I'm only 20, but I still feel like living at home really does shit to your brain. I've been nothing but lazy and depressed since I got back about 2 weeks ago.I've kept my lifting schedule consistent but that's literally the only thing.
Let's both job hunt for an hour, right the fuck now.

>ABSOLUTELY NO FAPPING

Your brain doesn't understand 'no'. Once you read fapping, you brain understand 'fapping'.
"Don't think about the white bear"

Sometime, the trigger is something as easy as waking up late or opening your laptop with no idea of what you are gonna do.

>>47707250
Thank you ! I will try to not be disheartened.

>>47707228
Thanks for the idea. I will try to find place where I can not be distracted. The problem might be that I need my computer to work and not opening 9gag or some shit is a reflex. But I will work on it.

I was there half a year ago, the exact age too just a different study. Everyone I started with was in a job and out of the country for years. Something in me clicked and I hauled ass through the rest of my schoolwork and requirements in a month and found a shitty internship.

I don't really like what I do, and I like to think I won't do it until I retire, but the fact is, right now its the thing I'm best at. I'm saving for some courses and found a great place to teach me a trade as soon as I get some more money.

Finish your major, get ANY job with it and start looking for your future. Use what you have anon.

I think you're right. Even if it's there, it doesn't work. I guess I just think "fap? okay!" and then it's downhill from there.
I'll just keep it in the back of my head from now on. Maybe I'll try my previous fix, if you have an urge, take a drink of water. Worked for quitting smoking the first time.

Let's fucking do it bro. No phone or email anxiety, none of that shit. I don't care if I get a gig in california. As long as I can get out of this fucking house. Gotta keep connecting with people on linkedin, making calls, and shooting out emails.

You're just doing a sub-optimal version of PPL. I would say if you're just a beginner you can cut out the fluff and just stick as close to the main movements as possible. You could also afford to change up the individual workouts so they get less boring(for example push day 2 could be focusing on ohp instead of bench). I would say pick a movement from each category(Push pull legs) and focus on improving it. Also vary your rep ranges, it's stupid to do that much volume even as a beginner.

are you overweight? i think the hormone imbalances are what causes it. I've never really had a problem with acne and i don't do anything special like washing my pillow daily, and my hair is usually over my forehead and everything. if you aren't overweight it could just be genetics

Dates is an easy way to get a lot of potassium. But again, don't worry about it. RDIs are autistic broscience and pretty much everything about micronutrients have to do with ratios.

Depends on your size. If he ever jokingly pushes you around playfully smack him while laughing but make sure it hurts, a lot.
If you provoke a fight with him it might backfire if he's a popular figure- everyone will try to get on his side. But if he's looked on as a kind of annoying guy beat his ass and enjoy betas acting servile around you.

OP, it looks like you are suffering from something called the bluepill.
Most everyone on this board suffers from this, but not all suffer as much as you do - though, some suffer more so.

Youve been raised in a society where the idealogy of identity has become somethint that has become considered real. Once you become aware of these social constructs that we have been taught and now blindly follow, it often times will come in conflict with reality and this will sort of serve as a catalyst for things we typically consider as bad - such as becoming a fat loser.

If you really believed that you got fit because of yourself, then why would you have gotten fat because of your 2nd woman leaving you?
You are letting your motivations and life be attached to things that are not in your control and this can make you do things that objectively irrational to your "goals".

You broke down because a woman you loved left you, it is normal to grieve abiut that, but you just could not let go and let it consume you.

Learn to let go of the things that really aren't important, and focus your energy on things that are in your control.
