    We are bombarded everyday through all types of media on how to lose weight, get a 6 pack and etc. All these meal plans, diets, exercise routines are supposed to show us all how to achieve the ulitmate body and physique success.

    You hear so much advice from different you know why?

    We all have different body types, and food, exercise and diet affects us all so differently. I have a friend at work that doesn't eat just right or workout but is huge!!! and I have some friends/family that can eat all day long and never gain an ounce!!!!

    I am probably the worst at comparing my body to others, especially on this site and I get discouraged sometimes. I want to have the perfect physique like alot of you do....but my work schedule sucks, I have kids to take care of by myself and etc....

    I have to keep in mind that everyone is different and what works for others wont work for me and vice versa...I have to remind my bf of this because he has superb genes and has never really had to watch what he eats or work out and has an awesome physique!! he had an 8 pack when he was younger and thought he was fat....uhhhh ya, whatever..

    He eats Ice cream every night and is only 170 lbs and still has a 6 pack and is muscular and cut...makes me sick!! I have to work myself into oblivian and live off of rice cakes to lose weight! haha

    Anyway, do any of you get discouraged because it is harder for you?

    I found this video of Dexter Jackson winning the 2008 Arnold Classic. He is a pro bodybuilder and is telling Arnold what he does or should I say doesnt do to be in that kinda wont believe it....

    just goes to show everyone is different....I wish as gay men we could all encourage and help one another with our goals ( and many of you do on this site) instead of tearing each other apart andputting each other down.

    I agree and sympathize with RedBull

    I have been struggling trying to Bulk and Cut for nearly 2 years now. Each time I switch I try something new to see if my body will respond the way I want. I still don't have a real answer as of yet - I'm still experimenting.

    I find RJ to be a bit of a double edged sword. I love to come and see the workouts, articles and use others profiles to help motivate me. At the same time though, I compare myself and sometimes just want to give up. I just don't seem to be getting closer to the people on this site I admire and want to be like physically.

    I would just like to say to anyone that goals don't come easily for - like myself - that I'm sure that it will be all the much sweeter at the end and that I am CHEERING for you!

    Just a few days ago I weighed myself and was not happy with the result.

    Then I'd look at my reflection and was not happy with what I see.

    Eventually I'd go home, feel rotten and have something bad in me.

    ...all of the sum that does not make me happy, frustrated and wishing I could grab one of those fine guys at the gym and scream to their face, "You cheated!!!"

    Then I know I have to make a change in my nutrition and work out. I visit RealJock (among other sites) for inspiration and guidance. I know I'll have to post my pics here to show my progress, and hope get some advice and feedback. I just perk up and keep trying, cause stopping isn't going to make me happy.

    Good luck everyone!

    I truly and honestly believe that if you want to shape your body for the best - it has to be a lifestyle change. There is no such thing as results happening in days or months. It takes real discipline and a daily regime that you keep up with consistently. Like I said, LIFESTYLE CHANGE.
