There is no alternative bro. The alternative is giving up and proving everyone right. Showing everyone that you were a loser and a failure. We're not gonna let that happen. I used to be so incredibly skinny in high school you wouldn't believe. Everyone teased me about it, made me feel weak. And I was. When I graduated I started hitting the gym pretty regularly. After a couple of months real results started showing. After a year or two I saw some of the people that used to tease me and make fun of me. Not only for being skinny even. Just that I was a stupid or because I had bad grades. Literally most of them just went downhill after high school. Some are junkies, others just became very fat. For the first time I felt power over someone that I used to fantasize beating the shit out of. If I wanted to, I could. If you haven't already tried going to the gym, just do it. Thia goes for anyone reading this. Get serious about being a regular. It's the ultimate confidence booster. Go on /fit/. Read the sticky. Look for advice. And always improve.
