I think it's great that as of late, RealJock has refreshed it's position on guys losing weight with the Weight Loss Challenge and the members have reached out with various threads on the subject, but I see a trend developing that I do not like in pertinence to all of this.
Why, when regular (jocky) guys join the site and sometimes create introduction threads, they just say something to the effect of "Hi, I'm here....great guys on this site...yadda yadda....howdy, etc", but when bigger guys, (your less fit for the time being have lost a lot of weight or just beginning) do a thread like this, it is always, Fat Ass Delurking....exsqueeze me?
To delurk, you have to be lurking in the first place and being here partaking of the eye candy on parade that is RealJock, that is not lurking (because everyone here does it), especially if here for more than that like fitness tips and such. I just got the vibe that these "fat asses" thought they were some how "less than" just by bein here. That is bull. If gym is gay church then it definitely behooves us to rally the fallen. In that vein, it means, ya'll are welcome so no need to be so modest. So you found yourself in a bad way, SO WHAT, does not a lurker or a fat ass make.
You had to look yourself in the mirror and find fault in your body and along with that, find fault in your lifestyle and take corrective measures. That isn't easy, especially when everyone programs themselves not to do that.
If anyone here calls you a FAT ASS or makes you feel the need to call yourself one, kill that person in your mind, he is not worth your time.
You bigger guys bein here around all of these gym bodies, that takes courage so no way are you less than. You've got guts and what's more, you are going for what it is you want in the face of adversity; that should be commended. Not, "I'm a fat ass, please don't treat me bad, real jocks." I'm willing to bet you've got bigger stones than some of these big ole gurls here anyway.
Ooops, I did what one member here that I know of hates: I made a statement and failed to ask a question. Well, it did puzzle me how long we'd let guys call themselves names in public posts. Am I the only guy that bothers?
