    I grab a fist full of body fat and shake it while looking in the mirror and say to myself, "You fat turd, are you gonna always look like that? If not you better put down that :burg: and start running." Usually works pretty good for me.

    I took a year and a half off from training and I ballooned up to a SLOPPY 225 LBS. I was a fat mess. Ive been back in the game for a lil over a year now and cut down to 175. Just the desire to not look the way I did back when I was 225 is motivation enough for me.

    What keeps me motivated is thinking how i was bullied in school for being overweight and wanting to prove to my self that isnt true. And also my life also depends on me controlling what i weight cause i dont want to be some one who has to be carried out of a cut up brick facade weighing nearly 700-2000 pounds.

    Awesome. It's the best and anytime I don't feel like going to the gym, I pop it in. That flick smokes any Ronnie or Jay vid. And it's got a plot. I can even get my girlfriend to watch it.

    Quoted for truth, as I do the same. You have to think why you started exercising in the first place. I just think about "What if i stop caring, and let myself go again"

    Then, like clockwork, when I get back into lifting, I become angry with myself for ever quitting or becoming unmotivated in the first place. I have been in the gym 8 straight months now without missing any significant time.
