If results are coming real slowly, ask yourself why. Yes, it takes time, but, what defines slowly?
In the case of Chaser, it could take months for him to look halfway decent, but, one should be able to see a noticeable change in him in just a few weeks. He has a number of mental issues needing addressed, and lacks any real stick-to-it-tive-ness, coupled with ongoing self-pity, and so he is his own worst enemy.
If you're an average person (not real fat, and not real skinny) and, let's say your goal is getting "bigger" (more muscle weight), and you don't see gains in a month or two, then, you might be training like an idiot.
Time and again, I've seen guys bust ass at the gym and eat stupidly.
Gay guys, especially the young ones, have a tendency to starve themselves. I have to giggle when I see someone 5'11 and 130. I have to shudder when I see someone 6 ft and 120. Many are to thin.
I give myself 18 weeks to go from 12% fat to about 3% fat. That's really not that long, and it flies by.
Chaser fails across the board. It's not just the food, and weight he talks about, but, is in a job he doesn't like and so on, yet......doesn't make moves towards active change, thus, after hearing it a bunch of times, and having told him a bunch of time, you realize that he likes being miserable and failing on a regular basis. What Chaser doesn't understand is that success is by design. You come up with a plan, execute it, reach the goal, and repeat.
If he was on the football team, they'd throw him off for non-performance, or..they'd throw him off for ruining team morale.
He should be coming back, tooting his horn saying stuff like "I walked 30 minutes today. I think I'll go for 45 tomorrow."
If premature death isn't enough to inspire someone I don't know what is. Feeling good?
