I need some solid advice /fit/.
In my teens I was anorexic. During my recovery process I stabilised around 140lbs at 5'7", but I didn't do it properly, I didn't do it professionally. I only ended up switching one ED for another, grew depressed and began overeating, ballooning up to 225lbs in 2 years
I'm 24 now and I've since sorted out my mental health and I've learned a lot about nutrition, using food for energy and not for comfort, and I'm eating very well and working out at the gym 4-5 times a week. So far I'm 33lbs down and physically I feel amazing, but externally I'm ravished by deep, shining stretchmarks scars all over and am awaiting the inevitability of saggy skin.
How the fuck am I supposed to cope with the fact that even if I make it, even if I get down to my goal weight and put on a substantial amount of muscle and look and function amazingly, that I'll always be 'lesser' because of the permanency of what I've inflicted on myself in the past.
It just seems too cruel. I'll always be defective. I'll never become the kind of woman I dreamed of becoming externally. I'll always be unattractive with my clothes off. Bikinis, cute underwear, sleevless tops, they're all off the table for me. No man will ever REALLY find me physically attractive. How do I cope with this reality?
How the FUCK do I get better at running?
I started a month ago, I can run 4 miles without stopping now
But my 1.5 miles is still fucking 13 minutes...
I've been doing HIIT and long distance ( for me)
Why is my 1.5 mile still so shit?
The best way to get faster over a middle distance is quarter mile repeats on a track. You should be able to do 10x quarters at 1:50 or so with an eighth mile recovery between each quarter. Key is to do each lap at around the same speed and then really push the last few.
Alternatively, you could do the Lydiard method, which is to run as many slow miles as possible each week, working up to 70+.

Has anyone loss weight without diet change?
I'm fat. fabbly, too much pain with rolls under my pits.
I can't change my diet btw. why? cause I'm that way
metabolism goes down when you are fat.
my diet is good
Anti-psychotic drugs cause 4 to 37+ pounds of weight gain per drug cycle (1mo to 6mo+). It is understandable to hain weight even with a good diet. I have to eat less during a bulk or cut because my schizophrenia drug (Quetiapine) makes me a lard ass if I don't. However, I have evaded that issue. I asked my psychiatrist and he gave me Topamax and Metformin to counter the weight gain. I actually cut easier now, especially with my Wellbutrin and Vyvanse.
I'm fucking 18, end me

Can you recommend me some actually tasty chocolate whey? I just bought this one from ALDI and it tastes like death.
So guys, I have so many times in my life encountered a situation where I am intellectually stronger than someone and yet I cuck out from my beliefs because they can beat me up even though there is no real threat. What do you think of starting MMA or kick box to get self confidence in that way. I don't have any problems with self confidence in different situations such as speak in front of many people or getting girls, just with confronting physically stronger guys.
Just do it, it's a great way of exercising, it boosts self-esteem and it grants you skills that most likely will be necessary one day. Otherwise, try to get a friend to train with you. Me and a buddy of mine both own 14 oz gloves, handwraps and mouthguards. We get together 1-2 times a week just to fight and it's good fun + a good way to burn of calories if you're cutting which I am.
You only need 3 or 4 things in a street fight.
A 1,2,3 "goto" combo. A sprawl. A standard Takedown. Maybe learn how to use kicks eventually. If you have at least these few things in muscle memory, you'll have the advantage in most street interactions that escalate to physical aggression.
Also, I like to use "mutual combat law" where if both parties agree to a "sanctioned" (discuss ground rules) fight it is legal as long it doesn't result in a death (best to have...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
To be a good fighter you wanna be good at 1 grappling art and 1 striking art. The best way to go about it is to become good at one first then learn the next one. Start with kickboxing then after a while when you're good at it start doing BJJ and then you can start doing actual MMA.
>tfw can't even make myself eat healthily anymore due to existential crisis reasons ("Who cares, looking good is a spook" or "Procrastinating this won't mater, having low willpower won't matter" etc)
>tfw struggling to have any beliefs at all (whether to work hard or be lazy)
>as shown by my 4chan presence I just do whatever is lowbrow enough to manipulate me (internet, fast food)
Clear your mind, make an effort to find yourself. Learn from within, Socrates said that all truth comes from within and is the greatest weapon against ignorance, which is now conducing you into where you are, going.
This is my biggest fear. I still eat well and lift regularly but its all i like to do besides drinking. Have been extremely bored and trying to figure out what i like to do by myself but i cant think of anything. i like boating and kayaking and camping but when i do those things, im just drinking the whole time. I used to enjoy video games but dont even like them anymore unless im playing with a friend and talking to them.
What do you think you owe your parents?
I don't owe them anything. I told them tonight by the time I'm 30 I will take every single penny they've earned from them for treating me how they did for 20 years.
I will not help them at all and the moment I'm finished college they are dead to me, I will never speak or have anything to do with my family the day I graduate, I'll never ever speak to them after that day.
Anon why so down. Sometimes i have fantasys about me winning money and leaving and becoming great. But nah. Theres a reason why they are your family not just a coincedence. Just love em. And do you.
Sucks you had shit parents OP. I owe mine a lot. Close to half a mil for putting me thru prep school and college. Plus living expenses, buying expensive clothes, outings to foreign countries, be able to buy proton or food without worrying about bank.
ill be a good son and do nice things for them. I still hate myself tho
Anon you don't owe your parents anything, despite what people tell you.
They owe you, not the other way around. At least until you're able to provide for yourself.
They chose to bring life into this world; they are the ones who got pregnant. You never asked to be brought into the world.
