So within the past while I've dropped some weight, a bit more than I think is good to, and I'd like to gain some back but in a healthy way. For example, by building some muscle. This probably sounds like an easy thing to do but I have a slight problem, I'm quite lazy and don't exactly have any motivation to do it. Anyone have any tips I could use? I'd be very grateful for some help!!

Find something inside you thats worth fighting for and keep fighting for it!

Lift heavy weight till you fail and stick to the weight when your happy with the muscle you gained to keep it lean muscle not bloated muscle.

Setup a routine certain time of day/week so there no excuses and never give up.

Exercising releases the "happy hormones" right? That's something that would be good to fight for, as you say, and help me a lot! For lifting, do you have any recommended weight to start at?

You decide based on what your comfortable its different for everyone. Start light with single numbered weights....just remember to push yourself to go a little heavier now and then and dont be afraid to go down in weight..forget what other people can lift is about building muscle not how much you can lift

For me its a bug its creeps up on you, after gym you feel high again...few days later you feel downish and hit gym you feel high again.. then it hits you it makes you happy to be physically free even thou it seemed hard to start with...keep going and reap the rewards

Alright! Thanks for the advice! I'll definitely be trying! And it looks like I've found a new thing the get that good kind of high from... performing is usually that thing for me but my band hasn't done anything recently. I just hope I'll be able to keep up with it!
