This is more of a rant than anything else. I’m gettng frustrated day in and day out by my family and friends. My parents keep telling me that I’m too big (which i dont agree with 24y/o 5’9 205lbs). They obviously dont dictate my life because I’m an adult but wheneverthe topic of exercise, weight lifting, or nutrition comes up they look at me like I’m crazy and “overdoing it”.
Then come my friends who like to go to happy hour during the week and all quit lifting because they do not want to get “too big” and when anyone one of them decides that they are getting too fat and decide to start lifting they go for a couple of days and amazingly disapear when leg day comes up and then they say they dont have time to lift anymore. My best friend trains MMA and constantly states that lifting is gay and that I should start training to fight.
To compound the issue the girl i am currently talking to occasionaly likes to say “dont you think you big enough?” Sorry for the long rant but again I am frustrated that no one close to me supports me or at least not give me a hard time about something I am passionate about. No one around me shares my enthusiam and all the comments about not wanting to get big or “big enough” makes me question the sanity of the people close to me.
