So my best friend and i have done just about everything together since we were 10. We have worked at the same jobs, played the same sports, everything. I have spent these last 12 years trying to compete with his God-given genetics. I have worked out, without much idea of what i was doing most of the time, since i was 12. I am 6’3’’, and three years ago i weighed 155 lbs, at this same height. He weighs 185 and has for about 4 years. since three years ago, i have put on 50lbs and now weigh between 205 and 208lbs, I kinda figured out what i was doing with weights.

He hasn’t done anything, in fact he mostly sits at his laptop. he still outdoes me at every act of strength, looks better, and has bigger muscles. he is 6’ even. It’s ridiculous. I have always wanting to get into bodybuilding, and he thinks it’s disgusting, but he is sitting at 185, 7% body fat and if he looks at weights he get’s bigger. Even though i outweigh him, his arms are still an inch bigger.

just felt like ranting. he took his shirt off 5 mins ago in my apt. and my girlfriend was over squeezing his well formed pecs. lol[/quote]

look at the good side, you always did everything together, now that includes getting your girlfriend! BROS BEFORE HOES!

Here is part of an article from JM Blakely that I like… slightly out of context but you should see how it applies

"I will readily admit that it seems to be easier for some than others. But the price is relative. You are not anyone else. You must not compare the ease or difficulty which you are presented to anyone else’s situation. So what if it is easier for your pal to gain weight than you? What does that have to do with you? Nothing. Your task is your task. If you must eat 400 calories more than him to get the same results, then that’s the price for you . You decide for yourself whether to pay up or not.

Oh yeah, I should mention - life’s not fair. He got a discount and you got taxed. So what? You can still both have it. Are you willing to pay or not? If you’re not, you’re not. But your reason shouldn’t be because it cost you more than someone else. When someone wants something bad enough they’ll pay double! They don’t care- they are just happy to get it. "

I had a friend at school who started lifting weights the same time as me. He grew ridiculously fast and progressed much more quickly than me - even with rubbish form he had girls all over him in no time at all. People telling him to do a contest he gained muscle so fast.

Saw him a few weeks ago and we arranged a gym session. He was no stronger (and in some exercises weaker) then when I had last seen him 2 years ago, I was way stronger and now bigger as well. He said he just couldn’t be bothered as soon as he got a girlfriend because he doesn’t see the point of working out unless you’re single. he was really smart but scrapes by in university as well. What a waste.

Santana row.
the french place.

She’s gorg long long brown hair green eyes tan

She should be famous. She’s a hostess.

Just a question…why is this retarded? Not everyone wants to be famous or lift or body build or be anything more than what they are. Just because she’s beautiful doesn’t mean she has to parlay that attribute into cash or fame. The same goes for the super smart guy that wants to bag groceries.

This is just something that untalented people tell themselves to make up for their lack of natural skill…the truth is, most of the great inventors, athletes, politicians, military strategists, writers, and on and on, were the best of the best from the start, and that combined with drive put them on top…sure there are a lot of fuckups with talent bagging groceries at the Safeway, but there are countless more out there putting these people to shame…

This is true. What is also true is that most of us are really not all that talented or gifted so we’d better develop drive and learn to work hard in order to excel.

Hence my use of the term “generally.” I am not disagreeing with you: the best of the best are always those with both insane natural talent as well as drive. But just like the general population, most talented people do not possess this drive.

Of course all I have to go on is what the OP put in his post, so to be fair it could be that OP is exaggerating and I am way off base.

I was thinking the same thing. But I also think that living off one’s beauty is not good for a woman, generally speaking, in the long run. The are a gazillion beautiful women making porn as we speak…not really a waste of genetics necessarily but not exactly every woman’s dream job either.

i understand that we should not compare ourselves in a negative way with other people. i’ve always used the fact that my friend has always been so much stronger, and more agile to motivate me to work more. i’m by no means weak, but he has always been a step or two ahead. i preacher curl 175, he curls 185. i bench 275, he benches 290. lol

I know this girl very very VERY WELL.

She is held back by fear.

She does have dreams just fails to pursue them… fear. Irrational fear.

Ahahahaha! No, hostessing for thirteen dollars an hour at twenty six years old makes total sense!

LMFAO.

EDITING TO ADD: as a hostess she IS making money off her looks. Just not very much money.

Just wanted to say that I feel your pain.
I have a buddy that has a GARBAGE diet (I mean awful; fast food constantly, potato chips before bed, Pop-Tarts like a boss), does not supplement protein, has a decent workout routine but nothing terribly special, and drinks fairly often.
He’s the guy on the left:

lol

Unless it’s to find a source of inspiration.

There’s one guy at my office that used to work out just upper body (especially arms) during this teenager years. During the last years he just worked out randomly, with poor diet, barely no lower body, etc. yet he has monster arms (size and strength).
Some people who don’t work out use that to poke me, but well, I’ll just keep training hard and eating oats.

How are her serving skills? Does she remember your order or does she have to write it down? Maybe she’s just killing it with tips.

I think a field trip is in order.

I bartender and served in college and believe me I know the potential there… and the skills required to really do well. She isn’t a server and she doesn’t make much in tips at all. She has been offered to be a server but is scared she will suck at it. Anyways now I feel like a dick talking about here.
