Yesterday, when I was picking something to wear for a dance, I noticed that actually nothing fits me. So of course I started yawning, cursing everything, etc.
and then my father gave me one of those speeches. He said that lifting weights is stupid, that I will become too big (hell, I'm only 6'2, 210 lbs, and I strive to have ~230lbs, not more)...
I didn't know what to think. My father is quite a big guy, so I don't know why the fuck is he always saying that. I constantly listen to shit like you are just bodybuilding, you have no stamina, you are not really fit because you don't run... I'm getting sick of it. even though I don't run constantly (I do hill sprints, but no light cardio) I'm probably in better shape then most of the guys I know.
I read about D. Tate saying that you should avoid those kind of people, but HOW can I avoid my father?! And even my mum is sort of mad, because I lift weights, like being skinny, with no ass or legs has now become something you have to be look like, to be in and to look good.
I don't want to look a like a metrosexual who can fit into any pants.
I have quite wide hips, big ass (genetics + compound lifts), and mum is always making fun of me, and my ass.
I've jusr read one of Shugarts blogs, about Butts shrinking...
And it's true, I don't know anyone around me (I hope this won't sound gay) who has any ass. All just skinny or big asses. I stand out, and now even I don't know if this is OK, or should I just stop doing DLs, and become like others. Sometimes I really have this kind of doubts.
Yeah, it's sometimes annoying buying pants, but still I don't want to be like others. I want to lift weights, be strong, but with all this shit around me... No one supports me, and I just don't know what to think.
I apologize for this rant, but considering that you are the only people who can actually understand me, I just had to write this, and let it out.
