Bigorexia gives me pause...

Really wanted to make my arm muscles much larger but only made my arms smaller
--went from 11.5 to 10.00
All the while taking in more cals & working harder.

Dysmorphia = Cruel Mistress

Love the "Faux Food Fighter" thing. Awesome.

Try this on for size. I happen to believe, and I'm not alone in this, that the body responds more powerfully to thoughts than action. Which means that what you think about something is far more important than what anybody else says about it, or what you do about it. If you do what all the experts say because you think you are scrawny and need to get bigger, what carries more weight, the actions you are taking or the belief that you are scrawny? Clue: Many, many people hit the weights every day with an intensity that would impress Jay Cutler but they bring with them into the gym a muscle-shrinking mindset that says "I am not enough yet." Year after year, these people stay pretty small. They gotta get to the place of "This is working" before it will work. Seems like a mind scrambler, I know, but if you deeply desire physical change and passionately believe that you can accomplish more than what has been done before, are you wrong or are you an Olympic athlete? (Answer: you are an Olympic athlete. If Olympians only did what has been done before, no records would be broken, ever.)

To get in the mindset, review your facts: your are freakin' awesome. You are tight, strong, educated, experienced, you could teach anybody in the gym a thing or two about a leg workout. You have seen the dark side and you know what it feels like to break through it. You have felt the intoxicating euphoria of success, the sweetest mental morphine of them all. You've loved and you've built things. You are hot. You are funny. You've seen sunsets. You're gonna change everything they say.

Knowing all this, your biceps will grow. It's true. Hold onto it.

G.I. Joe, then and now. The action figures say it all. Barbie's always been freaky, though.

If your impulse is, "She's really not all that thin, she looks pretty good," then you're part of the problem.

BDD, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, is a sneaky, horrible, silent disease that rips the sufferer's world apart. There is no part of the waking day that a BDD does not feel anxious and unworthy. Just walking from their car into a supermarket can bring on an panic attack that renders them weak and unable to breathe. Many cannot hold down jobs, most have few if any friends. Worst of all, no one understands. It's like an emotional cancer.

What're you saying, KarakD.? That spending an hour every day picking at your face until you look like a strung-out vampire Kewpie Doll isn't as much fun as stepping out of the shower clean, pure, naked, and gorgeous? :D

Just watched America the Beautiful with my hubby. Hard to watch at times, but well worth it. Thanks for sharing.

This guy is smart to blow off the check up at the end. If something works for you, it works. If you're happy, you're happy.
