Well people like that don't count. Obviously they don't know why we do it or how we look other than show prep. You can't care what others think. Your freind never had a "muscler guy" . They all say its gross but there eyes can't unglue off a guy like that on TV, at beach, in bar or at the park even if there mouth says gross.
People like this say that be are fewer than the people that support you. People like this I just don't talk bodybuilding with them. I stay friends but no bodybuilding talks. As you grow they won't even realize it until they see old pics because they will see you on the journey.
Pic your friends wisely and tolerate your enemies.
Short story side, I tell them "It's better than were I was going."
