Is it shallow? You work out because wanting to be attractive.

    I know working out is not just about having good body image. But recently I felt like, I work out just because I want to be attractive. And it also made me only "like" people who have better body image.

    I was sitting in the subway today doing what I used to do. Watching people their act and then imaging their story. But i kinda felt like I only watched people who have better body shape... (I was not thinking their undershirts or underpants). These couple days, I felt like I skipped those not-in-shape people. Don't even want to watch them or think about them.

    I don't used to be this way, I believe everyone has their own story and that is the most interesting part. But since I have better shape compared to couple months ago. I start to not "like" not-in-shape people.

    Is it shallow? When you have a better body image and then you start to only "like" people who have better image.

    If working out could lengthen a guy's dick by at least 2 inches, every guy in the world, except guys with 12-inch dingdongs, would be lifting everyday. There's nothing wrong with working out to look "perty".

    I see no problem with it. I work out 50% to be healthy, 50% so I can look good. I know it may seem shallow, but sometimes looking at fat, obese people kinda disgusts me....am I wrong for that?

    Hmmm...

    I think looking at yourself in the mirror and being proud of your hard work and your image also enhances mental health.

    So yeah, I do train for my health. Physical, and mental icon_smile.gif

    Me too its a 50/ 50 thing. I saw a huge fat guy this morning, its hot as heck here today and he was sweating, it was gross. I try not to judge people for being morbidly obese, however I do seem to.
    I guess its like anything if I find it ugly or disgusting I avoid, ignore, go around it. Like violence in movies. I generally walk out of a cinema if a movie becomes violent. There is enough violence in the world without being entertained by it. Same with obese people.

    back to topic if you feel better by working out you exude confidence and often attract people

    I felt frustrated when I see a people who has a huge beer belly. Especially when he has a killer handsome face.

    I do it for the look and because unlike team sports you don't need others to wanna play. The weights are gonna be there regardless and I love that.

    I think it's normal. Hell, it's one of my motivations. I wanna look in the mirror and say "DAMN!" But in all honesty, I wanna look good for me. Unless you are special to me, I kind of have the mentality of "it's my body, not yours, so keep walkin" and don't really care what others think. I'm really my harshest critic.
    But when it comes to others that are over weight and obese, I'm not necessarily hypocritical...but I am. I look at them and assume (or blatantly see) that they are exhausted or discomforted or just so unhealthy. I remember what it was like to have the random heart pains and to be tired. If they are not doing anything to get in shape and healthy...then it is pity and some disgust I feel. If they are trying and working to be healthy, then it is respect I have for them. It's a clear example of "you despise in others what you despise in you" and vice versa.

    If working out in order to look better is shallow then everybody needs to be more shallow lol. I like to workout to look good and because I just like doing it. You feel energized and happier and a better looking body is another perk that comes with it.

    I don't like guys with a ton of fat, but I wouldn't need for a guy to be in the same shape as me, which is not perfect. Maybe when I finish Insanity I'll be close to perfect lol. I don't think it's shallow to appreciate a body type that you like. You don't have to look at guys with bodies you don't like and struggle to find something attractive about them lol.

    I do wanna be sexy but mostly I wanna look good to me. I wanna be able to see myself naked and literally get turned on by myself. I wanna feel good putting my clothes. I wanna feel good being shirtless around people.

    Nope. If you're happy what does it matter? Some people look healthy and fit, but smoke cigarettes. If you look good, enjoy it. Truth be told, most people look better than they give themselves credit for...like The Plastics, beating themselves up in the mirror #FWP.

    I work out so i can look hot and lose my V-Card...if it's shallow I don't give two shits. Just catering to the shallow demands of men and women everywhere in Sydney who don't look twice at guys without abs.

    Nothing wrong with that. Working out contributes to physical AND mental health (in all senses of that).

    But your threads tho...

    I workout to look good naked. Well actually, since I achieved that goal already, now I just workout to remain good looking naked.

    With all the beauty products and fashion items on the market to make us look better, it's simply stupid not to finish the deal by also making your body look better.

    Cheers to being Vain... Lets be honest lifting weights isn't the greatest idea for your joints, running isn't exactly all that great for your knees (in the future, long time runners can attest to this), BUT FUCK WE LOOK GOOD, so I say YES, i work out to look good.

    Now eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle is a whole other story all together that one should truly consider, but we were solely discussing "working out".

    Give it enough time and anything you do will fuck you up sometime. You won't live forever, just be responsible and enjoy what you have while you have it.

    No it's not. It is one of the benefits that comes from working out. I work out to stay healthy and to look good. Working out is a huge confidence booster as well.

    Boy if you don't stop with these threads lol. Yes. All of us have some levels of shallowness. What really makes you more attractive above all else is self worth and confidence, this has been said many times before, but it's true. Learn to be happy with who you are, then from there make changes to better yourself. No more of these threads. okay? honestly it makes you look pathetic.
