  1. Woah....that's a nice kick up the backside! It's true...IV become so obsessed with what I don't have, I can't see what do I have...thank you Fadi! I think the standards the elite lifters set for us are a bit high. I was speaking to a friend about this (photographer) and he was trying his best to convince me most of social media is editing and angles...he went so far as to show me. IL try upload a picture of me as I am. Be prepared to puke it is DISGUSTING! Lol And one in the right angle with a minute of editing on a phone.
  2. Ah I see what you mean. Gym mirrors make me look hench! But I know I'm not that big. Very true about the lighting though. Many thanks
  3. That's exactly the route I'm going down now. I have bought a strength program from a established trainer. I just feel like I'm wasting my time bodybuilding as Il never be satisfied. So powerlifting it is.
  4. I understand what you mean, but my problem is..... I can't even explain it very well. Even in reflection of Windows or anything I feel like a look good, but in the mirror I have a dad bod! It's like my eyes are playing tricks on me. People are always complimenting on how I look.... But I can't tell if they're just being nice because they know I go gym? Ahh my mind is a mess!
  5. Hi guys, Does anybody else suffer from body dysmorphia? And how do you cure it I guess or cope with it? I'm not depressed or lacking confidence in any way. But I just don't see what others see. It's like I'm blind in a way. I look in the mirror at my body and feel like puking, even questioning why I go gym, why has my body not changed in a couple years of training. But other people seem to think differently, for example in photos I look completely different to how I look in a mirror. Unless I'm comparing myself to someone else who doesn't lift. I can't really see any gains. Basically what I'm saying is topless.... I look like topless will ferrel... But except I don't according to others. I'm confused as hell. What's going on? Do I need to see a psychiatrist?
