    I went to a block bar-b-q this weekend. I was talking to the dude that lives with his family 2 houses down from me. He's like in his mid 40's, around my height, about 165-175 pounds and has a gut. He starts the usual stuff like "I used to workout all of the time like you, I used to be in great shape, I used to run 10 miles twice a day everyday and I had 23" arms!" WTF?? I mean seriously. When I was at my biggest at 270 my arms were around 21" and they were fat. A 23" arm is professional BB status. I don't know anybody with 23" arms that runs 10 miles twice per day. I didn't say any of this to him. I mean, what's the point. I was just like, good for you dude. Then he asked me if the bowflex was a good machine! LOL!!

    I don't know why people lie to strangers to try to make themselves feel better

    Of course we've all heard this one, "I got a cousin/friend that's twice your size!"

    You know I used to work out but then I had a kid or I got married or I became paralyzed in a car wreck blah blah blah. Everybody has a story. This story is of course at a bbq where he's putting down his own bodyweight in pork and beans.

    from my training partner's log last week:

    "At work a guy told me a glory days story how at 185lbs and 17yrs old he did a raw HS meet. He squatted 750, and then felt so good, he did it again. a 750 double at 185 and 17. But he only benched 245 and deadlifted 450. Must be something to out raw squat Siders at 100lbs less and 10yrs younger. I am thoroughly impressed. I invited him to our gym he said those days are past him."

    He was probably trying to relate to you but didn't want to sound like a bitch.

    same thing here. guy at work said when he was 14 @ 140lbs he could bench 500, squat 400, and pull 600. We all just kind of :hsugh:'d. Another guy here goes to the same Y he goes to. He said he's never seem him touch a weight. He just does aerobics and jogs.

    Wasn't it you that was in the locker room and had the two guys talking about how they could be more jacked if they tried but they had education and work to worry about, and didn't you just spend all day in the gym - then you gave them your work card or something showing that you were an engineering specialist

    It just makes you look worse. Mine is pretty bad thanks to fucking baldness but I don't make shit up. I just go with it, joke about my shortcomings then go home and weep with my dick in my hand.

    "I could look like that/lift that much if I went to the gym for 8 hours a day like you."

    Uh no. I spend at the most 60 minutes at the gym. Tack on another 45 minutes for cardio. How many hours do you sit on the couch in front of the TV? 8+ hours? :ugh:

    People are dumb. It's easy to say and believe but hard to really accept it when it's in your face. I get asked if I work out from time to time. No dude, I'm 270 and look like I do because I like cheesy poofs. People who don't train cannot relate. I wish they could, but they really don't understand. They tend to think I'm just a big guy who is really strong, no real relation between the hard work and the results is apparent to them, and they would never believe that they could do the same thing, shit, it's hard enough to convince guys on the forums that it isn't genetics holding them back... and they work out!

    My wife's family was asking why I was wearing a weighted vest for some walks... then my wifes fat mother criticized me for eating 6 eggs for breakfast, saying to my wife "but I thought he was trying to lose weight". Sigh. They just don't get it. P.S. She was having leftover chinese take out for breakfast.

    That's awesome. I get surprised looks from people from time to time when they find out I am an engineer and work for DoD. Stupid and weak is no way to go through life.
