i know we all have this problem BUT WHY OH WHY!
I hate days when I wake up and I feel small and punny, I mean I am only 5'7" @ 160lbs, but still. Why does this happen? Some days are so great I feel good my confidence is up and I am ready to take on the world, and then there are days like this and I feel like WTF is wrong with me, I should just quit training, I look small, I feel small, I feel tired...WTF IS WRONG WITH ME? LOL but seriously, has any1 come up with a way to feel good about yourself 24/7? AND I MEAN WITHOUT GEAR! Cuz we all know on gear we always feel great...feel free to jump on this thread fellas cuz out of 1000000 members on this site I know every1 of us gets like this...

If you didn't have days where you felt small I guess you wouldn't have that drive to keep progressing. I know that's one of the reasons I train, eat, and rest the way I do.
I'm the sam height as you are and way 176lbs at just under 10% bf. I'm no monster by no means but I know I'm not skinny either but I never feel like the way people say I look. Most people thin I weigh in the low 200lbs range. When I look in the mirror I never see it.

LOL.... It never ends once you hit 175lbs it will not be enough.... trust me I'm hopping to get 2 more cycles in by next summer and I would like to weigh in the lower 200's and the same bf.
From your avatar you don't look small at all.

Use it as a motivating factor. If I was happy with everything I wouldn't be driven to be better. I hope I don't sound like a psychiatrist here, but you've got to experience the bad to make the good feel great.

When I was a little younger, self esteem was a huge problem for me, as it is for many young men. So I joined the Marines. And I didn't grow an inch damnit! Although I did learn how to shoot guns, dig holes, and carry huge rucks full of crap I didnt need for assanine distances. It wasnt until I got out of the Corps that I noticed all the intangibles. Good posture, eye contact, voice projection, drive. People notice that crap and in turn, you see that they recognize you as a solid individual. And you don't need to sign your life away for 4 years to get these things either. Just implement them one at a time into your life. Stand the hell up straight for just one day, the next will be easier. Even if you're getting chewed out by the boss, don't break eye contact. Don't get run over! And the very most important is drive! If you have a goal, you can fear nothing. I'm going to the gym at 7 tonight and when I leave that place, it'll all be there on the gym floor. I'm not taking anything back home with me. It's all there inside us, we just have to tap it. People dont wake up one day completely reformed. And not one person on earth feels complete every moment. We continue to get better, one day at a time, one workout at a time.
