    So basically I just started a workout plan the other day and I've hit the same problem I generally do, I find that I don't have the toughness/mental strength/confidence/whatever you want to call it to continue.

    I know I want to look better... I just dont have anyone bitching in my ear to strengthen me... I need confidence.

    I had this issue at first when I was 140 lbs of pure rail and, of course, I would get looks in the gym of, "What the fuck is that guy doing here?" You just have to push through it, ignore everyone, and just focus on what you're there to do. I wanted it so bad, regardless of how insecure I felt or how I compared to the other guys there, it didn't matter because I wanted to transform my body. So when I went to the gym that's all I focused on... just went into my own world and did my thing.

    It's something you have to figure out on your own. Just have to ask yourself how bad do you want to improve your body? Depending on your answer, the lack of confidence and insecurities should be dwarfed in comparison to your drive... or you can always hire a personal trainer and have them bust your ass. icon_smile.gif

    Good luck.

    You look pretty great as you are!

    Just remember that it takes time; the best ways, in my experience, to keep at it are:

    - Do things you like; if the workout is fun, you'll keep doing it.
    - Vary the workout to keep it interesting: drop an exercise, and add another each week.
    - Enjoy doing it with friends; they may be better now, but you'll improve, and then you can bring others along.
    - Keep an eye on your goals p and make some easy, step-by step goals, so you can feel that you are making progress
    - don't try to do too much too soon - the surest way to want to give up!

    Good luck!

    The issue is its just me doing it, I have no gym(all I do have is a bench downstairs) no access to gyms or money for them... All I have is myself and I have a lot of stress on my mind and its hard to find support.
