    Yes (but more overall gym-rattishness), doesn't really affect progress.

    My wife isnt supportive because it takes away what little time we do see each other. She also says I get real vain and check myself out in the morning and what not.

    I try to explain the minutes I give up now equals years together in the long run ...And the mirror is because I am a fatty and Im trying to check my progress for my own reassurance

    I get alot of support from family and friends especially moreso recently with the CL spot.
    My gf has been supportive from day 1 though prefers me leaner rather than when I'm trying to bulk.

    Your gf should shut up and bowdown to you everyday.
    My gf likes me bulking. My energy level and sex drive is WAY higher.

    Plus I'm not an unhappy pain in the ass when I eat more.

    I have a lot of people who support me, and some who just don't know any better and are worried about my health, even though I'm still a hair under 180 lbs and not fat. :rofl:

    I haven't had a good gym training partner in years, whuch sucks, but I like going in, getting it done by myself and getting back home without spending a bunch of extra time there.

    No, the majority of the people I know make fun of me for lifting and staying healthy, including the people at the fire dept. (whom you would think should be most fit of all).
    I do it all for myself and hopefully I'll never get any recognition.

    My parents like how I look and enjoy seeing me grow, but they worry about what I eat because they don't know anything about nutrition.

    My GF supports me, but she was a college athlete too and works out almost every day. She always tells me she wants me to have bigger biceps and shoulders, but I tell her I have to do squats and deadlifts to impress guys on the Internet :hsugh: (the first part is actually true).

    Yeah because I have a pretty good group of people to train with and know a lot of lifters in the area.

    My "normal" non lifting friends don't really care either way but some of them think its cool.
