    Help..I need to get back into the gym

    OK guys, as some of you know, i have really lacked the motivation to go to the gym. I have been off gear for about 7 1/2 months, and have lost about 20 pounds, as well as a lot of strength.

    The question is, should I start taking a little bit of gear (or a lot) for motivation and then go back? Most everyone I talk to says that you shoudl go back to the gym first them start the gear, but at this rate, i may never go back...

    suggestions?

    Thanks,
    GK

    I had the same problem!! It seems to happen always around this time of the year. try this~ take a picture of yourself. Really. Take a few. Keep one on your refriderator(sp), one on the bathroom mirror, and the other where you will see it. Then set a gaol or a date with goals of where you want to be(ie. 1, 2, 3 months from now) wirte them down and put them next to your picture. Look at this when you wake up, before you go to sleep, and especally before you go grocery shopping! If you actually do this, remember that you need to TRAIN to achieve your goals, and that means going to the gym. If you don't eat right and train you WILL continue on a downward spirial liek you have already said you are. -HERE ARE YOUR CHOICES- THRIVE or SURVIVE! your life in every aspect is better when you are happy with yourself. From what I read above you ARE NOT. Do this and begin progressing in life again!

    -I hope you take this to heart.-

    But go back to the gym before you even think about taking gear again...

    No problem. I honestly hope that all that read this follow through and ake the pictures. Those little snapshots are more motivation than anything I have yet to come across.

    no dont, muscle memory is a great thing. you run a higher chance for injury if you do also.

    watch a good Rocky movie. that usually does it for me
