    Everyone's got one (besides just wanting to be healthy overall). Mine is my mirror, when I stumble into the bathroom every morning, rub my eyes, and mumble, "God damn it."

    Well, 2 things.
    The more immediate of which is to be stronger, more fit... help self confidence.
    But long term, my step dad has had heart problems, my great grandfather has had a stroke. I want to do what I can to prevent problems now.

    I'm sort of in the same boat. Both of my parents have had heart attacks, and my grandfather died at around 40. My brother used to be extremely athletic when he was in high school, but it makes me sad seeing him waste away getting fat while playing World of Warcraft. I don't want to end up like any of those things :hs:

    It's as satisfying to me as, uh, coming is, you know? As, ah, having sex with a woman and coming. And so can you believe how much I am in heaven? I am like, uh, getting the feeling of coming in a gym, I'm getting the feeling of coming at home, I'm getting the feeling of coming backstage when I pump up, when I pose in front of 5,000 people, I get the same feeling, so I am coming day and night. I mean, it's terrific. Right? So you know, I am in heaven.

    .

    I wrestled 119 in highschool and I refuse to be the skinny kid ever agian. I like being strong enough to help my friends move things without having to go "sorry dude, not strong enough". I also like the time that gets spent in the gym. It's a nice way to relieve stress and makes me feel great. Also, no matter what, the gym is consistant. A 45 is always the same weight. No matter how much other bullshit pops up in my life, the weight room is an easy way to measure progress.

    Self-confidence, self-esteem, getting ready for the USMC so I don't die at boot camp, and to just be thin and muscular looking. I've always liked the look of fitness/figure models, and I'd love to look like that one day. Also, I love the looks I get at the grocery store when I pick up a 22lb bag of dog food with one hand.
