Re: Starting, helpful advice needed.
Twitchee, welcome to the forum.
In my expierience i have never actually seen a guy ridiculed because of his weight. Never.
Id like to bore you with a story a minute. My gym is in a rough area. I mean a notoriously rough area, i used to get dropped to the door and collected outside immediatly after for a long time. I was a quiet kid when i started and looking back, insecure was the word to describe me, i was totally unfit and couldn fight my way outta a wet paper bag. I was terrified entering the gym. The other kids seemed so fit, n scary n i kept to myself. Now im 19 not the worlds greatest boxer (yet), im lean as a grilled rasher n all the kids beg me to hold the pads for them. The gym is now my comfort zone, where i love to be. Do it man, if uv got the inclination just do it, it helps!
I was only an instrument that God used to play his music through. Loved being that instrument because he gave me some beautiful music to play.
