"It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better.

what to do

I have cerebral palsy. It's mild and only effects the way I walk. I go to a mainstream school. People always make up reasons as to why I walk a certain way, they never really ask. My guess is because you probably wouldn't know I had a disability if it wasn't said. I'm even in a few honors...

Sleepy/Useless after workout

I can work out either in the morning or the evening, given my 9-5 schedule. If I do it in the morning, i'm a useless lump at work. If I do it in the evening, I sleep forever (like 10+ hours), often through my alarm, and am half-useless at work the next day. I enjoy the exercising, but I...

Unhappy Staying motivated while being depressed.

Hi all. I've recently been diagnosed with bipolar type 2, which explains a lot about my previous attempts in trying to get fit / not fat.

Weird. Normal day at work, and I looked at the mirror and I was about to cry in the restroom. I've been going to the gym for like 8 years now and NOTHING is changing. I guess the good thing is, I'm NOT getting bigger, but the bad thing is I don't see a transformation whatsoever... I'm 31 now...
