Anyone else ever feel like this
On a serious note.. I was getting my haircut.. And there was this kid in there maybe 12-13.. about 5 feet tall and prolly about 150 pounds.. really fat.. The poor guy just walked with his head down wouldn't look at anyone.. and as soon as he was done he took the car keys from his mom and ran outside to wait in the van.. His self esteem was so low.. I wish I could take him and everyone else like that to the gym.. We have it good; having the mental discipline to train and diet, but there's people out there who do not. I felt bad for this kid, and hope that one day he decides to change his life. and no I am not on clomid lol

she was feeding us crap for food and he didn't have the genetics to over come the unhealthy eating. When he was 18 he changed the way he was eating and last 70lbs.

Yea, that stuff can make me feel bad for a bit...partly because at that age, that's exactly how i looked. I felt bad about myself, but i wasn't to the point of looking at the ground all the time. But I can definitely feel for the kid...hopefully he'll do what i did and make a change in his life.

I tried to help a friend of my brothers by bringing him to my Gym and putting him on very basic weight training with a dash of cardio. He came daily for about 2 weeks then fell off and won't come back.The poor guy is 29 6ft 1 and a little over 400lbs. You can't make anyone do what they don't want to.

first off I helped my buddy for 6 weeks in my basement lifting weights.. He was all for it at age 25 and benching 115x2... Then the plan was he would get a gym membership and go with me at my gym... He fell right off, and the main reason was he didnt want to look funny/weak inside the gym... I dont really feel sorry for him...
Then there are 2 fat brothers that I use to work with.. the older one was a freshman in HS and he played football.. Had a tough year but lifted all football season.. Well the next year(this year) he signed up for football then quit.. Now he gained about 15lbs.. Bring him to 225 at age 16... Now he younger but bigger brother is a freshman, and he is now playing football.. And lefting weights.. Now he likes it, I wanna go training with him and teach him some things, even though Im 10 years older.. Well What Im getting to is that some people I feel bad for, but as said before after age 15-18 I dont feel sorry for them anymore.. Age 13, yes...age 19, get off your fat ass

This reminds me of this kid who i worked with, he was 12 and about 5' or so and was HUGE! I could not believe that his "parents" let him get like that. Poor kid couldn't run, climb the rock wall, nothing.

Ive given up helping people. Its sad but i have
I used to try and help people down my gym, if i saw some new guys, or someone who looks like they need some help, i offer it. Not in a "im stronger than you woo hoo" type of way, but like i wanna help you know..?
Ive had too many people just throwing my advice back at me. Ive seen so many people down my gym, end up hurting themselves, or what ever coz they didnt take my advice, or something along them lines.
Ive given up on helping people, the fact of the matter is most of them dont want helping

I was skinny, picked on constantly in middle school. I still don't like myself very much it carries over into the rest of your life. I know people value me very much now but it is always there the doubt in the back of my mind.

I agree. I would feel terrible for the kid and I hope he makes the decision to change his habits as soon as he can. After a certain age though, I have no pitty for those who are overweight and lazy. Get up and do something about it. I don;t want to hear you complain about your bad knees!! Your knees are bad because you weigh so friggin much!! just my .02.

You did all that you can. Stories like these are only sad IMO when the person in question has never tried to hit the gym, box, play ball or whatever. It's sad to see a kid whose parents never helped them develop in any real physical or mental way aside from basic supervision. Once the person is aware of their options, tried something and then declined to pursue it further......I say f*ck em, that's what separates the doers from the quitters.

I know three chicks like this. Two of actually trained with me. One only lasted one day. She called me Wednesday to tell me that she wants to loose some weight before New Years eve. Like that's gonna happen. I'll see her tomorrow at a toy drive. I'll lay down the law:
You come to the gym when I'm there. I will not call you to remind you. She knows my schedule
You run/jog/walk for 45-60 minutes after waking up and before breakfast every day.
Put the beer down and grab some water.
STOP EATING JUNK FOOD.
She's like Betty Freaking Crocker. Always making brownies, cookies, and cakes. I hate going to her house because I always end up binging there. Tomorrow is also a car club christmas diner at her place. This has been a bad week too. A cheat week.
Sad because I had just gotten down to 10.3%BF. Was going to get down to 7% then start a cycle, a bulker.
