    I just wanted to quickly say to those of you who are new to this forum, that the majority of regulars that post on here are not an accurate reflection of the crowd you will find in the gym. Nobody is going to taunt you, or pick on you, or criticize your form/diet/habits in the gym. They might mentally do it, but don't let this discourage you from joining a gym. A lot of people are skeptical of joining a gym because nobody wants to be back in the grade school lockeroom.

    And to those of you who sit around and pick on people asking questions and seeking advice/help, :hsugh: at least they are asking about how to correct their bad habits and addressing the issue of leading an unhealthy lifestyle

    a lot of guys come on here after a traumatic event in their life, ie., being made fun of, being dumped, rejected, death in family, near death experience....or some sort of "fed up" situation, so encourage, don't discourage

    :crying: dude, stfu.

    people in the gym dont say anything to let you know you're doing anything wrong and you keep doing it wrong. on this board people are harsh and to the point, no sugarcoating..but at least they're honest. if you're form sucks, we'll straight up say, "you're fucking doing it wrong, this is how you do it." we wont just pat you on the back and say, good job..keep up the work, though you wont get anywhere doing it.

    and people dont comment on other people's diets and that's why people stay skinny or stay fat. if someone here wants to lose weight, we tell them.."quit fucking eating so much, expend more calories than you consume, fatfuck."

    yeah, we're not the most tactful people in the world, but we give the advice they ask for.

    Everyone knows that nobody will taunt you to your face.

    What they're worried about is what other people are thinking or say behind their backs.

    "Geez, that's all the weight he can lift?" "Nice outfit." "What a fucking tool."

    And if they can't get over that, too bad.

    Its not a bad place really.

    I posted pics and explained what I was planning to do, and got flamed for some reason.
    But whatever.. take the good and the bad, filter out the shit, and you've got some pretty decent posters here.

    Well my comment was based more on your other thread. But I figure I'll offer some constructive advice too:

    Nothing can replace experience. Some things must be learned first hand, under the bar. Right now lifting may not make all that much sense to you but you're about as new to it as you can get. One day everything will fall into place and it will click for you. It took a few years before that happened to me but now I know and understand things that noobs never will until they experience it for themselves.

    What you need more than anything right now is to just go bust your balls and lift hard, get a base, get some experience, and then later on think about taking it to the next level.

    Sorry if I came off as an ass.

    "hey guys, i've been the mayor of my shithole town of 12 people for a month now! how should i go about becoming the president??? i'm really good at dealing with Auntie May's and her abusive boyfriend Ned's marital problems so i know i could handle running the country!!11 omg"

    that's the equivalent of what you did when you first started posting in F&N. do you expect people to give you a pat on the back and welcome you in when you're acting like a toolbox?
