Alright anyone hear about bigorexia, it’s the opposite of annorexia and you pretty much never see yourself as big, no matter how hard you try, you can be 242 and you still feel as if your tiny, and no persuasion will make you think that you really ARE a big person.
It’s also a disorder in which people always try to attain a physique better then their current one but even when they reach something they wanted, its still not good enough for them and they want more. If anyone looks it up on google, it’s pretty interesting, yet kinda scary at the same time how this disorder can actually take over your life. As in people get fired from jobs because they must workout and thinking that a job will interfere too much with their lifting and such.
Anyways I was wondering if any of you think that you’ve suffered from this. I think I have actually and am kinda trying to sway away because another condition is that you constantly look in the mirror at yourself. Which sounds weird but I do actually, always seeing how I look and such. In highschool a lot of kids tell me I’m big, I’m 195lbs now, and I can admit I have a good deal of muscle mass, cause I’m lean also.
Anyways if one looks at my profile and photos I can see that I’m pretty built (not trying to sound cocky or anything) and I’m 183 there. Anyways now that 195 I can tell a difference and stuff but yet again I feel small. But I did take pics and theres definaetly a noticeable difference in that 12lb. gain.
Either way I’m stopping to look in the mirror as much now. Only couple times a week. I think I’m also done with trying to be real big and stuff. I think if I just focus on strength the size will come if I want it, and sticking with my fighting. I want no part of bigorexia.
