I know alot of people want to lose weight or tone up or get huuuge muscle but are there any other reasons you guys work out???
My main reason for working out is to fight depression and give myself something else to focus on after a life changing event a few years ago!! It helps me stay positive.

It feels good, you look better, feel stronger... I get nervous if I don't...

Yuh I get really self conscious. One day of working out can make me feel like a million $$... one day of binging and being lazy can make me feel the opposite

(I'm fighting major depression.I want to say "I did it. You said I couldn't do it." I grew my hair to below my shoulder blades, pierced my ear was engaged to a beautiful young woman 21 years younger than me. Everything I was told I couldn't do. Now I'm going to get rid of the baby bump and prove I am worth it. I can do it. And I'll prove it.(a man shouldn't have a baby bump. Lol

03 Mar

03 Mar

I needed a change or call it a mid life crisis. Used to be in shape when I was in the army and wanted that back. My wife was diagnosed with lymphoma a few years ago, is cancer free now. Made us more health conscious. Several reasons I guess :)

03 Mar
Sorry, didn't realize this was in the women's locker room - my bad.
03 Mar
Thats okay!!! Guys are welcome to input!!! So glad to hear about your wife!! But if all that is over now then all you guys have to look forward to is a happy and healthy life together! Yay!

I do to lead a healthy life than to suffer from any type of illness. To be fit and strong as its the new definition of sexy. To get compliments that boost my confidence and keeps me self motivated each day. So I want to enjoy all the positive fruits out of it and never quit.. :) :)

I feel the reason why I want to work out is because exactly what you said ... Depression. I'm the heaviest I ever been which is 140. I don't keep a scale anymore in my house I go by how my clothes fit ... I would love a motivational partner though

My reasons are to feel more confident and raise my self esteem. This is connected to my depression and anxiety as well and the working out definitely helps alleviate a lot of it!
