    don't be a weaknut, that helps.

    my motivation is to simultaniously beat the disease that tries to take me out and also to choke motherfuckers more efficiently

    1. Picture a fat dude in your head
    2. Picture what you wanna look like
    3. Compare
    4. Choose
    5. Motivate

    Self-hatred.

    I suggest you quit being a pussy. That helps, too.

    I think self-hatred is also what does it for me. I've hated myself for as long as I can remember.

    You want motivation......go find the biggest guy in the gym and ask if you can workout with him.....then have him push you till you puke......you will learn to love it.....

    I'm not looking to be huge by any means, but I want a nice cut body that I won't be ashamed of once my shirt comes off. My main motivation is looking at my friends, and realizing that I don't want to be like them physically.

    Health. Knowing that i've already dropped 50lbs and that i still ahve 30lbs to go. Knowing that it's the right choice.

    I dunno. I just have a ton of free time on my hands and you can only jerk off so much.

    i used to be overweight so I hit the gym. Now I what motivates me is trying to get better gains. I know I can do better and lift bigger. It's just a mind over matter type deal with me.

    I used to think "hey if i work out maybe the chicks will like my new improved body." Fuck that. I do this for myself alone. If they like what they see cool. I dont care anymore.

    T.I. - Motivation Lyrics

    [Intro]
    Better get on yo job, tell'em, haters get on yo job, nigga
    (Motivation)
    Nigga, get on yo job, tell'em, haters get on yo job, nigga
    (Motivation)
    Haters better get on yo job, tell'em, haters get on yo job,
    nigga (It's motivation)
    Sucka nigga, get on yo job, if ya, hatin' get on yo job, nigga

    [Verse 1]
    You can look me in my eyes, see I'm ready for whatever
    Anythang don't kill me, make me better
    I ain't dead nigga, you can take the fame and the chedda
    And the game, any deal, I'm still a go-getter
    Take my freedom for the moment but it ain't fo-ever
    I got the spirit of a god, heart of a dope dealer
    I'm a king, seen hangin' with some cold killas
    I ain't never back down or ran from no nigga
    I ain't sat down yet, pimp, standin' gorilla
    Even if I'ma all alone or standin' with four niggaz
    Tell'em jump, pimpin' it don't get no realer
    5'9" with the soul of a 6'4" nigga
    I separated the fakes, paralized from the waist down
    From the real stand up guys of the A-Town
    Can't even look me in my eyes, put yo face down
    I'm outta jail nigga, whachu gotta say now?

    [Chorus]
    Motivation
    Niggaz fakin' only gonna inspire (Motivation)
    All yo hatin' in fuel to my fire (It's motivation)
    Niggaz plottin' on the crown soft droppin' (It's motivation)
    Hey but I ain't slowin' down and I ain't stoppin' (Motivation)
    Now nigga don't stop my show (Motivation)
    You ain't know I don't stop, I go (It's motivation)
    Sucka niggaz can't make me suffer
    Just make me stronger and make me tougher (It's motivation)

    [Verse 2]
    To be locked in a box niggaz happy to see
    Put anybody on top, any rapper but T, I, P
    But back to reality G, O.G. still carryin' me, nigga I run this
    Spread yo rumours, kick all yo lil' dumb shit
    Tell lies, laugh 'bout the time that I'm gon get
    If it make you feel better, picture me over and done with
    Punk bitch, come with all the gossip you can come with
    Small thang to a giant, I can overcome this
    Jail, I don' done this, rap I'm just havin' fun with
    I could be a local joker, never have one hit
    Nigga, "New Finish" alone'll get me dumb rich
    While these rappers sellin' records gettin' pennies
    If Grand Hustle sell any, I'ma get plenty
    If God with me, who could be against me sucka?
    Can't make me suffer, just make me tougher

    My 2 training buddies. They are both bigger and stronger than me. I have to deal with that everytime we work out. I just keep tellin em that one day I'll pass them and they just laugh.........

    That's motivation enough right there...........
