I am currently losing every ounce of reason to continue on my fitness journey, but I really hope someone can give me a good reason not to.
I do not care.
I do not care.
This was kind of what I had been training for because I dreamt of being someone's first love if I looked good enough. I have kind of given up on that goal since with all due respect, my likelihood of finding a girl who's close to as attractive as me and has never been in a romantic bond is zero.
So why should I continue?
Forget all that. How long have you been working out? How often? What's the longest break you've taken? You'll feel like shit. Your body will want you to continue. After every workout you get a dopamine rush
2 years. I'm at 200lbs with abs. Thing is, there's absolutely no benefit that I value that comes from this, so why continue?
>why not health?
I don't like myself enough to do it to live longer
>motivation that won't break down
Like what? :0
I've never been passionate about anything and I really didn't care about where life would drift me to but that was the sole goal I've had since I picked up my first novel in 5th grade man
>I don't like myself enough to do it to live longer
>anon how do i get motivation?
i can't give that to you fellow anon, i just know that motivation fueled by desires for women and sex is the wrong way because sooner or later you end up like your situation. you need to give yourself the reason, going to LULZ isn't going to do much either. your lack of concern for health probably comes from how unmotivated you are about this and that might change when you reestablish your purpose. just keep grinding anon
I'm not necessarily a lazy or unmotivated person, I have yet to skip a single day of planned training in the past 2 years. I simply just don't have a reason to continue going 🙁
Listen to this anon, broski. /LULZ/ is fucking mind poison. Too much bullshit and self-pity. I try to come here as little as possible. Don't stop lifting. There's inherent value in what you're doing. Only thing you should stop doing is lifting for women.
What do you want me to train for? Everyone seems to have a huge goal or dream that they're chasing after but I don't.
like i told you before that's not how this works. you need to find your own reasons in your journey.
i ran out of lifting pics to post
That logic seems backwards, no?
"Do x to find a reason to continue doing x".
But you still care about looking and feeling good. I really don't. I actually prefer both the times in my life when I was obese and underweight, I was happier during both
>That logic seems backwards, no?
you're definitely not wrong there anon but nothing worth doing was ever easy
what the fuck is that expression?
>health I do not care.
>strength I do not care.
there is more than one way to work out than bench press anon. you can try something new?
>This was kind of what I had been training for because I dreamt of being someone's first love if I looked good enough. I have kind of given up on that goal since with all due respect, my likelihood of finding a girl who's close to as attractive as me and has never been in a romantic bond is zero.
you already failed if you were doing this for girls so it's no wonder you've hit the wall motivation-wise. have you tried not doing things in life with the idea in your head that you might get laid at some point down the road for it? i would start there and try to detox this asap
>my likelihood of finding a girl who's close to as attractive as me and has never been in a romantic bond is zero
Of course it is, broski. It's 2023. Why are you even worrying about whether she's ever been in a "romantic bond" or not? They all have. Get over your hang-ups or die alone.
"No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable."
But why am I working for that strength and beauty?
because you're alive and you can
if you can't appreciate that then just give up and kys already too
I could also do anything else for the sole reason of being alive but that just sounds weird
I just do the bare minimum and be consistent. You'll still be ahead of 95% of people. Don't turn it into a faggy fitness or self improvement journey, there's no such thing, it's just a scam
This sounds okayish, but I still don't see a reason to continue at all :0
Yeah, made this thread because of this. I'd hate to feel like I wasted 2 years of my life for nothing but I genuinely just don't see how continuing will be advantageous to me in any way.
For me its to feel good, I like seeing a fit body in the mirror and I don't like seeing a skinny body or gut. It's that simple
Don't you have an overarching goal that is the reason that you place value on looking good?
No, there's no point. We're all just going to get old and die, that's the only overarching goal we're all headed towards. I stopped caring about stuff like tracking and breaking records, I just focus on the basics and I'm so much happier and consistent. I just like looking good because it feels better than looking bad. I'll do that for as long as I can and that's that, fitness is not my lifestyle or therapy or path to spiritual salvation
All the work that you have already put into it will go down the drain.
>he goes to the gym to get women
>physically strong but mentally cucked and desperate for pussy and sex
you will not make it. just give up.
>desperate for pussy
I have a fwb that I hook up with regularly, sex isn't the issue
I didn't have any other reason to go other than for my future wife
Keep continuing, I'm glad you have a reason
>I have a fwb
LULZ is khv board, not a failed normie i can't get a gf booboo feel dead bored, kys
I agree but behind every hard task, there is a reward worth having fought for. I just don't see that in lifting anymore, as the sole goal behind my pursuit of aesthetics went down the drain.
>my old goals are over and i have none
find new ones
>where do i get them anon
that's not how this works. no one here is going to give you the tools for your destiny
Again, this is weird backwards argumentation.
"Do x to find a reason to do x" just doesn't make sense.
>I do not care.
That's the only relevant reason I can think of. I'm hitting my 40 and I still exercise at home only to make sure I don't end up being unhealthy.
>I do not care.
Maybe just a bit, you still want to be able to lift yourself and your possible future wife. Or robot wife. Who knows.
There is a girlfriend at the end of that road just waiting to have a provider that is barely acceptable looks wise and will have to do after chads lost interest in her. Keep working out anon you can do it.
I mean, that's not the issue. I'm attractive and I've matched with literal models on Tinder, but I genuinely don't see a point in trying hard in dating at all if I won't achieve my goal of being someone's first love.
>I've matched with literal models on Tinder
Then you are just larping. But on the off chance you aren't then there is literally no reason for you to work out.
Nice, someone actually being genuine and honest about the fact that almost everyone lifts for women
just give up if you don't feel like it. after all theres no gym for your face. if youre worried bout safety just buy a gun

skinnyfag manlet here. i used to work out and I didn't get what other people felt out of it. Maybe im defective. Isn't it like scientifically proven that exercising should make you overall feel better physically and emotionally? I have friends whot talk about how they feel refreshed or rejuvenated or some shit after a workout. I don't feel anything besides tired/soreness. Something must be wrong with me. Or maybe depression is just that strong
Same here, it just feels very very pointless
It's not that I didn't get women from it, it's that the women I got weren't wife material and I doubt I'll ever find someone that is
I find most workout guys to be laughable with their copes that any of this is fun. It is not. You force yourself and the only way to stay consistent is if you have hopes that this will give you women. But I managed to cheat the system and I have been exercising for 2 years. I play beat saber and the progression is what keeps me going. I literally gave up on women and I don't care about being acknowledged. It is fun to have an actual goal and for the activity to be actual fun. Instead of your goal being a bench press number that is actually you wanting pussy to notice you.
Just fucking quit it then, and become a coomer consoomer. But then again, you never know when an East Asian girl could use some protection from a strong man. It could happen anywhere at anytime.
What are the odds of that happening? Why put in years worth of effort for a lottery ticket with a tiny chance?
