    Am I getting fat or look too fat? I know I have been letting myself go gradually and feel like I should get back into working out with more rigor. But lately, some guy who I didn't want to hook up with called me fat, and then this RJ member decided to make a post about how horrible I look. I haven't been told I'm physically ugly from the neck down ever really until recently. I mean, I know I'm not a 10, but really? Need your input to see what you think. Here's what this RJ member said about me (in a thread lol):

    "You are not a jock, not even close. Jocks have a rugged look and they don’t have flabby bellies and round fat cheeks like the ones you show in your lame profile pix. You flex your biceps yet it’s barely there. I strongly recommend a goo goo diet for you and a 100 crunches daily, and since you are unemployed, you surely have some time for that shit."

    I'll take him up on the 100 crunches daily fo sho to start.

    Assuming your pics are recent, then you have a nice body - if you are worried you are getting too fat, then just watch your nutrition more carefully and exercise more :-)

    First of all - I'm sorry someone wrote that about you. That's really harsh and certainly not warranted. I think you look pretty damn good. Jocks come in all types - lean, muscley, "beefy" - depending on what they do.

    Don't let it get to you. Most of the guys here on RJ are nice and helpful - but there's always a bastard sneaking in, too. You got unlucky.

    When I read this I thought of Glee's Rocky Horror episode where Finn (the hot jock) was self conscious about being seen in his underwear. Some people are just ugly on the inside which causes them to say mean things to others to make themselves feel better. I suffered a back injury several years ago and actually still struggle with it today. One night at our local club, a "friend" came up to me and said something like "oh my god you got fat" while he patted my belly. I was so shocked that I actually slapped him across the face. (I'm not a violent person, honest!)

    Anyway, you look great and your videos are really funny. Good luck with the job search.

    Did you possibly say anything that would incite that? I have a hard time with things like this, I mean what kind of a miserable, malcontent son-of-a-bitch do you have to be to go out of your way to be a douche-bag to someone like this?

    From your profile, you seem like an awesome guy Jake. no worries.

    that's a douchy thing to say to someone

    IMO, if you don't play a sport then you aren't a jock. If someone is only concerning themselves with looking like a jock, then they aren't one.

    in your latest avi, you resemble a younger robert deniro. (godfather II, dear hunter)

    any hateful, spite-filled queen who called YOU "fat" must be one of those 30 inch twinks whose "abs" stick out farther than their pecs. icon_rolleyes.gif

    God we get enough hate from others do we need it from each other..?
    As a trainer I am really big on body acceptance..Jake your freakin' gorgeous..who gives a shit what someone else thinks...?If they would project that on you then its an issue they have with themselves...It was a nasty unpleasant thing for them to do-but it belongs to them....I honestly don't see why you would let someone else influence how you feel about yourself..go to the gym for you.... there is nothing wrong with how you look..and a lot of guys would kill to look as good as you do....
    we're all different and even the Adonises get rejected because it just doesn't turn on a particular person.Somebody is always going to be better looking,be hotter,be sexier always.The best fashion accessory?CONFIDENCE!

    That graph doesn't look right. Doesn't take into account muscle.


    Yeah sorry I feel like I was fishing for compliments. I'm used to people flaming me on RJ (not uncommon especially with noobs), but this guy just attacked my look and I was thinking...well, maybe I AM getting fat lol.

    You? FAT?!!!? I don't think so! I seem to remember that thread and thinking that the guy was a douche for calling you that. You are good looking with a nice body and a sense of humor to go with it.

    WTF??? I could only dream of looking as good as you do. Did this person also provide pictures of themselves for our review? Because I'm sure we could have a ball.

    I think he must have been offended by one of your more 'colourful' comments.

    I think you are a good looking guy. In fact, I was going to drop you a line saying how good your new main pic looks.

    Someone suggests doing 100 crunches a day.

    1) You know that abs, like all muscles, need recovery time between workouts to actually strengthen

    2) Crunches, of course, don't burn virtually any calories so even if you were getting fat they would do virtually nothing to counter that...

    ...so, why would you assume he knows what he's talking about?

    As for your request to judge your body, I will say that your photo where the earliest comment is from March 15, 2010 shows better definition and a lower body fat percentage than the one where the earliest comment is from July 21, 2010, so that could be indicative of some changes. It's still a very nice body, just not quite what it had been, but if you're looking for honest feedback, there is a change visible.

    This is RJ Jake, don't forget how much man-drool there is on here for you (bakejenson anyone?)

    You look great, and I mean that seriously. You pack a one-two punch of good looks, amazing personality and a healthy life.

    So you think you let yourself go a little, change it. You already look a lot better than 80% of your competition out there.

    Would you like to grab some tea or coffee?

    Dude, it doesn't matter what others think. And you're not fat. If you feel like your slipping a bit just eat better, hit the gym and do a little cardio... you'll be fine in no time.
