Whiney Weightloss

Sometimes when I run out of stuff to read on the Mens Health and T-Nation forums I have a quick flick through the WeightLossResources one in case theres something interesting happening. I can’t begin to describe how much this forum pisses me off. Maybe I keep coming back in the hope that someone will have written something sensible for once but its the same mindless drivel every single fucking time. 99% of the time it’s a women moaning about how they totally pigged out because of something like they broke a nail or someone said something mean at work. So everyone piles on the sympathy and I’m just left thinking “Wait lets face up to the reality of that instead of making her feel alright about it and trying to justify it”. We’re not even talking about eating maybe a Snickers bar or maybe a packet of crisps but some proper BBW pigging out. There are also a lot of posts along the lines of “OMG I had a big dinner last night and this morning I’ve put on 2lbs. I’m not going to eat for a week.” or “I’ve saved up enough calories this week/month/year to eat whatever I like without putting on weight.”.

Maybe it’s just the attitude I picked up from the Mens Health ones in that if you want to look good you’re going to have to work at it and give it 110%. It’s good to eat the things you like sometimes, but gorging yourself is just going to undo all the hard work you’ve put in.

Well I’m hardly one to talk as I’m no where near my goals yet. I measured myself at ~17/18% bodyfat at 189lbs. So I’ve got to drop at least another 14-15lbs of fat before I can start to think about builking.

    control your eating habits…and you will easily knock off 10 pounds within a few months. but never starve b/c u can wake up one morning to find out your worlds spinning like crazy the whole day.
