Ever fear you will go back to how you once were?
 
Do you ever fear that you will go back to how you were before you started lifting? I do. I never want to be fat again. I know how hard it was to lose the weight and I am determined not to.

I used to be afraid I would bloat back up for over 360 pounds if I ate anything I wasn't supposed to. I'm not anymore. I know I'm in control of my waistline and the food I eat. It won't happen overnight. I put on more fat that I planned getting stronger, but in the end, I'm happier with how I look now than how I looked at 215. That was small and weak.

Now its a focus on adding muscle and losing fat. Weight doesn't matter to me anymore, just body composition.

I used to be terrified that I'd go back to being skinny. I remember the nights of praying that I'd be able to gain some weight; while pumping my muscles and eating chicken. Once I found real food and real lifting things changed rapidly. I have no more concern that I won't stay big and strong as long as I keep squatting and eating.

Not really. I mean, as long as I keep lifting and eating right I have nothing to worry about. All of the education and practical knowledge that I have built, and my work ethic, will keep me fit. I guess my only fear is to never reach my full potential.

I recently lost over 100 pounds...I did have that fear, but after eating a LOT during the last 3 months, and gaining muscle instead of fat...I no longer fear getting fat...PLUS...I will NEVER let myself become that lazy, fat guy again !!

I was 130 lbs at 26 years of age when I started, 198 lbs at my heaviest (albeit a bit fat) and 184 right now (cutting to 175). If anything, these days cutting weight is as tough as gaining weight, so I am pretty sure I have nothing to be afraid of :)

Barring some big unforseen accident, no way I am going down to 130-140 lbs again.

I'm living that fear right now. I have minor arthritis, and it's been leeping me from training for the past 6 months with any seriousness. I actually just noticed I'm starting to get a spare tire, again. I'm hoping to get my insurance with a new company sqaured away, so I can get my shoulder fixed, and then start rehabing my leg as well. Shoulder has arthritis, leg still yet to be full diagnosed. It's just always sore, like a shin splint. ut after this much rest, it still hurts intermittently...

BUT>>> I WILL NOT FAIL, NOR STOP TRAINING, OR CONTINUE TO GROW IN THE WRONG DIRECTION!! I made my mind up on that already, and that's the most important part. I will heal, and I will reach my goals. No matter how long it takes, I will climb the mountain, and piss on those who held me back.. er, well, not piss on my own leg and shoulder, but you can't get the point.
