As someone who felt the same, all I have to say is there are no worries. Just go for a run. Trust me, when people see you actually working out they will show nothing but respect. Or they'll be gasping themselves from their own running.

I want you to know that you should not be embarrassed about going to the gym. I can tell you right now, straight up, we love to see fat people at the gym. I'm not muscular by any means I'm just basically average and it's a bit embarrassing because I have to do shoulder presses with like 10 or 5 pound weights on each side but seriously, everyone there (including myself) just likes seeing other people working out. Even if it's a big fat guy doing 5 pound bicep curls.

This may be true of your gym, but not all gyms are like this. My college has an over-abundance of extremely attractive women (great problem to have, but not the point). You would think that this would make guys compete less and, by extension, not be dicks to one another. You would be wrong. Instead, what has happened is the popped-collar douches all go to the gym and snicker at the over/underweight or otherwise unfit guys and try their damnedest to humiliate them. I am overweight (318 this morning), but big enough (6' 3.5") and intimidating enough that they will not confront me. They will (and do), however, talk about me and others behind my back, especially to the women. They play down our assets to make their own seem more impressive. This does not always work in their favor, but it does feel horrible. No one likes to be talked about and, although I have always had extremely thick skin, it did bother me enough that I actually stopped going to the school gym altogether. I bought a heavy bag and a sledge-hammer. I live 30 minutes off campus, so I walk and run around my little hometown, do Indian Mace workouts (great workout, complete body if you do it right) and hit that heavy bag until I cannot hold my arms up any longer. I am down from 360 and going strong. The moral here, though, is that not all gyms are accepting and you may want to find another, more private work-out method in some cases.

1. Read Wheat Belly. Diet is Key. Starch = Fat, LDL and diabetes
2. Join a Crossfit gym. Nobody cares about your body image in a supportive gym. instead, they congratulate you when you start shedding pounds - and it WILL happen.
3. Message me when you've done those things.

Have you tried fasting one day and eating normally the next day? You'd be surprised at how effective it is with reducing your appetite. Mix it with a moderate amount of exercise and you will lose weight.

I don't think I've ever commented before, but it makes me damn proud when I see an overweight person trying to lose weight by doing something as simple as jogging. Anyone who judges a person for trying to improve his or her life, should rightly go **** themselves.

I felt the exact same way. So i said **** that, i bought one of those cheaper manual treadmills for around $150 u.s. and started to walk in my room, dude at first the most I could do was 3 minutes, now i can go 30 minutes and still not feel out of breath. And as for food wise i stopped drinking soft drinks, and i cut down from 3 sandwiches to 2 a meal. Less chocolates, sweets etc, nothing much. Dude let me tell you, the hardest part is just starting. Just some friendly advise, good luck bro .

I'm a complete noob at any form of exercising, I'd like to start exercising to ready myself for Phys Ed next semester (Gr 11 now, didn't take PE in Gr 10). Do you have any tips on what to start with?

Just start with walking a little bit everyday, walking is the easiest way to get started and its a good way to build stamina. Which i think is what you'll need for Phys Ed. Remember when you first start don't push yourself. For the first week just do as much as you think you can handle. Now for the first few days your legs will be sore as **** and you'll have to fight yourself to keep doing it everyday. Once the first week passes then you'll notice you can go a little longer, keep at this and slowly you build up to 30 - 40 minutes. Three important things to keep in mind.1) Keep hydrated, I'd recommend water .2) Always do your warm up stretches before you start .3) Music is important, it helps take your mind off the exercise. For the first week try listening to slower music with a steady beat, I used chill step but you use whatever you listen to. After the first week or so switch to faster, more upbeat music. When i exercise,the faster music gives me a rhythm to follow, so without really paying attention to it you tend to walk faster and keep the pace as well. If you need music then you can check out a channel on youtube called DroneMusicOfficial. It's what i use. That's about it really, just remember to keep at it everyday and you will start feeling the difference for yourself. Like i said, the hardest part is starting, hope this helps

To be honest i don't know, I never actually checked. But i can tell you this, I used to wear 3x clothes, and they used to be tight, now i wear 2x with some extra space. Also i had to take in all my jeans about 3 - 4 inches. I definitely sleep better and I can't eat as much as i used to. I'm still pretty big and i still have alot of work to do. For now it's just to keep at it i guess.

Yes - Cool Story Time w. Uncle Swagbot;

> 10th grade. Never exercised before in my life. Fit-ish but flabby. No endurance. 11 minute mile. 11 ******* MINUTES!!!
> Friends tell me to join Track Team - they're signing up. Startled, I consider but say No. They see my interest and press. I join up. Don't know what the **** I'm doing.
> Get shoes. Join Track. Start running. Still don't know what the **** I'm doing.
> Pain... but the pain feeds me. More running. Doesn't matter how slow, just don't stop running.
> Mile time drops to 6:30.
> Veins throb. Massive calves. Better energy. Get runners' high. Destroy competition on hills.
> Run Track next year, then hardcore Cross Country Senior year. Started doing 5Ks (3.2 mi).
> Still running/biking/hiking/crossfitting to this day.

Moral of the Story: Running gets your ass in shape. Running + Lifting = even better. Running + Lifting + Body-Strength Exercises = Best. Running + Lifting + BodyX + Diet + Yoga/Stretching = You Becoming a Sexy Beast Real Fast.

Results will come. Just start doing something. Crossfit is a good place to start. Also, read 'Wheat Belly' and change your diet.

If you want to focus on loosing fat I don't think you need anything fancy like that. Just prepare your body for some extensive cardio training, some motivation, water, cut off the carbs, and you're good to go.

It's what I know anyway, based on reading Men's Health and magazines like that.

I'll let you in on a tip buddy. Consider this, no money for a treadmill? Go outside and walk. Don't like your body image, but too ashamed? Hell, don't jog. Just walk.

Walking is fantastic, it clears the mind, and with music becomes FUN rather than a chore. You see a fat person walking and you think 'walking to the store' or 'getting mail.' You see them jogging and think exercise over purpose. So by walking you are STARTING the process into exercise, and avoiding criticism.

And for the record, you don't have to jog to lose weight. It's (mostly) calories. If you eat less than you put out you will lose weight. The basic guide is if you're very over weight, odds are you can eat 2k calories and lose weight, so do that. If you're obese'd but not too awfully, then eat about 1700 calories. And if you're overweight but it's nothing bad at all, eat around 1500. The only other thing to do aside from calories: Protein and Sodium. You (well, mostly) can never have enough protein, it's fabulous, eat as much as possible. This will preserve muscle mass so you aren't bones when you lose the weight. Sodium is its own beat, it's hard to eat a little of if you eat a lot of packaged foods. Just find out from a doctor (or a reliable source) what safe amounts you should be taking in.

If you guys have a question you need answered, I'll try and help, I've lost 60 lbs total and I like seeing people want to better themselves. Good luck everybody.

I need help with what I eat. I don't have a great budget right now (saving up for when I transfer), and those boxed salad things seem to have a pretty steep price.
Is there anything out there that's relatively cheap that will supply me with sufficient nourishment while keeping me from starving to death?

This question is one that has had tons of answers, but here are some options that will save you money, and since I'm a protein fanatic, it'll get you some of that too.
Option 1: Rice and Beans
Simple! Two ingredients, NOBODY can **** that up. Add whatever extras you like, I'm a soy sauce guy but my friends like hot sauce. Now, this is used all over the world as it's a complete protein. The beans are the most expensive part but don't skimp on these, you'll only be hurting yourself.
Option 2: Canned Tuna
This one is harsh, tuna seems like a love/hate kind of thing. If you even slightly like tuna, keep some in the house, it's tasty, and makes for a good sammich. If you really can't stand tuna then it's not like I can force you to eat it.
Option 3: Chicken breast / Bagged fish (doesn't have to be expensive fish)
It can be bought in bags, stored for a longer amount of time, and is versatile with toppings/seasonings or whatever else you want.
Option 4: The BEST option saved for last, are you ******* ready for this?
MUTH. FUGGIN. PORK SHOULDER.
Stop eating cheap cuts of like, ass and lips because you know you should get meat.
I live near beef, not pork, but I can buy a pound of pork shoulder for about 90 cents. That's right, 90 cents a pound. Buy that ****. It's versatile as ****. I for one love putting it in a crock-pot with potatoes. But try new things.

The thing about eating cheap, is it's not hard, but of course there won't be ENDLESS option, y'know? Keep in mind meat is important, but keep cheap veggies in the house too. (I prefer broccoli, that **** is gold.)

ive always wondered how people like you started your food habits. I know its partly genetic how your body takes care of the food. i cant gain a pound over my current weight no matter how much i eat, i can only gain weight in muscle mass. is it something related to genetics in terms of needing body fat to survive. would be cool to know.

"starting food habits" and how your body deals with it are two different things. As a young boy I loved the indoors too much, and loved food. So I over-endulged with my parents not saying a word. They didn't like telling me no, for almost anything really. So I taught myself discipline and then decided that I should take care of myself. Not that I have bad parents, they have been very supportive. Although I do think it's more common to see people that eat a lot, and gain little/no weight, than people who eat normal, and gain weight. That only really comes from a thyroid condition, if people tell you "I eat the right amount of calories and STILL put on weight." Then, odds are, they eat more behind closed doors than they'd like to share.

Whenever i see someone lifting at the gym and they're skinny and obviously dont lift all i think is "everyone starts somewhere, atleast hes trying instead of sitting at home". Its jus tlike fat people jogging. and dont be afraid to ask someone (who doesnt look like a complete douche) about the lifts youre doing, just make sure not to ask them while they're doing a set.

Thats the way I was. Then I went and the guys I lifted with quickly became some of my best buds. They taught me tricks and generally how to do lift properly.
TL;DR Lifting people are typically cool n helpful

That's how I used to feel. I have an extremely fast metabolism. There's a difference between skinny and scrawny.. I was both.

I started going to the gym and looking like an idiot, trying to figure out what to do. It takes online research and an understanding of bodybuilding to figure it out.

I'm not a tall guy, but I went from 117lbs to 153lbs (gained a bit of height too). Trust me, anyone can do it. Just takes knowledge and dedication.

Yes it's me, and yes they're EXTREMELY asymmetrical. It used to bother me a lot until I got over it.

About 25% of males don't have symmetry in their abdominal muscle. It's one giant sheet of muscle and it's covered by tendons attaching it to the ribcage, which cut it into a "six pack". In my situation, the tendons are completely ****** up.. just genetics and there's nothing short of extreme surgery to fix it.

<---- Here's another example of it

Go for it, honestly. Don't give a **** about the other people at the gym, (They all started where you are pretty much) and they don't give a **** about you - they do their weights and concentrate on that alone, so there's really no problem.

My sister dragged me to this gym which is mainly body-building but there's some cardio machines, we're both quite chubby and go on those while all the muscly guys do their lifting, none of them pay attention to us because they're focused on what they're doing.

You've got the incentive, don't let worrying hold you back.

You actually gain weight suprisingly fast when you eat alot and work out. It will be akward the first weeks but you will get used to it. Also no one really gives you the "ih gof what a faggot" look because everyone started at some point and its ok as long as you arent trying to lift weight that are way to much for you and fail

When I started lifting 2 years ago I was 56kg and now I'm 73kg (relatively skinny still). I'd say concentrate on eating properly and improving on main lifts, you'll gain weight pretty quick.

Dude, you shouldn't give a **** about what others think about you. That **** is just going to bring you down. Buy yourself a gymcard, and just try it out. I've always been a skinny guy, and I still am, but I started to work out a couple months ago and I might not have gained a lot of muscles. But just the confidence of being able to show of my own body is one of my greatest accomplishments.

I will say it once again, I'm not any huge guy. I went to the gym to get a body that I can live with, a body I be relatively proud of.

Now get yourself to the gym and gain some muscles and confidence!

I'm losing it for the girl, the one. I'm going to ******* do it FJ. She's ******* perfect. I've lost 15lbs just by getting out and actually running for two weeks. My best friend stole the love of my life due to my own lack of telling her and personal appearance (or so I think). This has been the toughest time in my life but **** it, I'm doing it for love. Mfw to anyone who is/has been in my situation. Wake up and try like me. You've only got this one life so just ******* do it. It sucks but once you start, you can't stop and you'll want to keep going. I know I do. For her. Good luck. Thanks

You shouldn't do it for anyone else other than yourself. What makes you think that she's so shallow that if you just lose weight or gain muscle she's going to fall all over you?

You do it for yourself and if she isn't interested then **** her, because you've just opened hundreds, if not thousands, of new opportunities, not just from being more attractive, but from confidence.

I would say that this is not the right motivation, but I don't honestly know that for certain. I've started working out and losing weight (recently dropped from 360 to 318, I'm 6' 3.5", though, so it actually is not all that bad) and my recent motivation has also been a girl. I have never, in my life, been as motivated to go and workout. I used to play football and wrestle. I was recruited and trained for college football and I was ranked as high as third in my state in the 285 lbs weight class in wrestling in high school. Even with all that, I have NEVER been as motivated. Not when I went through the delusion that I might someday play in the NFL (I was young and stupid), not when I was beaten in a big tournament by another wrestler that I disliked, not when my team-mates told me I was not good enough. NEVER.

So, you know what? Maybe this does work; we are designed by nature to seek out a mate and impress them. It is the driving force behind all non-sentient life and the base of our instincts. All I know is that, for now, it is working for me.

I know exactly how you ******* feel bro, Same here for that girl, except i don't want her to want me, i want her to feel like ******* **** like a ******* bitch. I asked this girl to prom(junior year so i still got one more chance to not suck at life) and she tells me she can't go to prom, so im all sad and what not but she told me she wasn't rejecting me just unable to go to prom, so i thought it was a chance to see if she wanted to go out on a date, well she said her parents don't allow dating(******** cause i knew she had boyfriends before) and well prom comes around and people are posting **** on facebook and whatnot and i saw her....at ******* prom, with another dude. oh god was i pissed, but i really liked her so i never confronted her, but was told from one of our mutual friends that she said "she would never go out with a fatass like me" god was I pissed but it dawned on me, I always thought i wasn't that fat and was comfortable with my weight, im not obese but i could use to lose a few pounds. but shieeet. I'm 180 -185 ish btw.

That anon is completely correct, though haha. Eating well and maintaining a good diet is like 70% of losing weight.

When I started out, I had to eat food that I didn't like at all, but now I eat it all the time.

Don't seem to think it works like that. A lot of it is genetics. Women prefer men who are tall and have a good body frame. Muscle is just a plus but the genetics are actually key here because it means they will have offspring that also have good genetics etc etc. I've worked out for 2 years and I am in great shape, but I'm only 5 ft 11 inches tall and I have small wrists, which are a really bad sign for genetics. Therefore I don't get any women still.

Word of advice, if you feel low confidence, chances are getting into a relationship will not make it better. Before this, you must feel some type of self worth, or else dating will probably just make it worse, ex: constantly wondering why you have a gf, paranoia that she'll want other more attractive men, etc. So if you lack confidence try and do something to improve it like work out or eat healthy for your physical appearance, and read books, or learn java or something to make you feel smarter/ talented in something. There's plenty of other ways of course ,just some suggestions.
