    About to give up on gym forever..

    I have been into bodybuilding for 6 years on and off, there have been days when I have been built like a monster, there were days when I was well cut, everything happened, but it's the end I guess now. The cycle goes on and off and I am never content at the end of the day, I guess it's time to quit. Even when I was well built I never ended up with a girl or anything, I did impress many though.

    You should train for yourself not girls. But why were you not satisfied?

    Yeah training for girls and expecting them to flock to you is kind of like asking for it. I'm horrible with girls, but from what I can gather most of them don't even care if you're big or not. I see good looking women going out with sloppy nasty no lifting guys all the time.

    It's even harder doing it for myself. I am going to be stuck in this cycle forever, always paranoid about losing my gains, always worried about my next session at the gym, always worried about my next meal. Doing it for girls makes it easier and is a plus point that you may get celebrity attention for what you are trying to do. Doing it for ourselves doesn't lead to anything but loss of muscles one day anyways. Top of that, I am bored of getting attention and respect from anyone for my body.

    Man I don't want to sound like a douche, but be thankful that you are healthy and can train. I've been hurt for over six months, can't do chest or shoulders effectively. Here you are "getting bored attention and respect from anyone for my body." Look at it like that and come on playa.

    I am hurt and injured due to training since 5 years, I have semi-destroyed some of my organs and my whole body is swollen most of the time, yet I have carried on with this hobby.

    Another major reason I do it is because it's a good timepass and gives me something to do when I am bored rather then wasting money on negative things and destroying myself and my morals.

    I just don't understand why you would quit after spending 6 years training and doing all this work. Perhaps instead of out right quitting, why not just a week or two off and not worry about diet or anything for those two weeks. It will be few steps back but maybe it will refresh you. If two weeks is not enough maybe a month, idk. You could also just lower the intensity of your workout in general if you don't care about getting bigger.

    As for the girls, if you "never ended up with a girl" that just sounds like a completely different issue. That sounds like you either need to start talking to more girls or if you are talking to lots but not getting relationships out of it then you need to analyze what's causing it. Maybe it's lack of confidence, the way you talk to girls, not the right type of girl etc. etc...

    Keep your head up brah, no reason to give up completely.

    Like you said yourself, will you have something better to do, if you quit on this? If it would be you starting training in some other sport, or just doing healthy things, than do what your mind tell you to do. But if you will just lay in bed, play xbox, or whatever, than yeah, it is not worth it. This state of mind should be gone soon, i supose.

    Speaking of girls, like one mate said, cool girls are not only into how you look, but what are you made of from inside. (exept for b***** ) True story

    I'm never content at the end of the day either, which drives me further into continuing bodybuilding. I know for a fact I will never be 100% happy with what I'm looking at in the mirror but that's part of what keeps me going. Girls will come eventually, just do what makes you happy.
