Are you ever judged by how big you are?
 
I have been lifting for several years and I have only been judged that I know of once. A friend of mine told me that a buddy of his said that body builders were dumb and I fit that bill 100%. Needless to say I had to confront him and he was scared out of his mind. Him having no muscles and me in the prime of my weight lifting. Bet he had to change himself after I was done with him as he was studdering so bad.

A couple of the members think I am a meathead because I only do barbell lifts.

I'm not all that big so I don't have to worry about that for a while. however, I do get funny looks from other gym members when I do Pendlay Rows and power cleans. And this is a serious BB gym with members far stronger than in a typical commercial gym, some of these guys compete in shows.

Personally, I could careless whether another human being "judges" me small or big.

I be.

What I want to be.

You see.

What maketh' a man in thee?

Just be all you can be.


Best regards,

Chillen

There are only a few people in my life who's opinions mean anything to me. They love me as I am.

The rest don't matter.

The truth...most people don't give a crap what we look like.

True dat.

Most people only care what they look like.

I'm not really all that big but I do want to get big. I do not understand why people judge anyway. We all have our flaws.

Life's too short to care what most people think. Unfortunately, stereotypes exist everywhere; a female that lifts must want to be a man and will no longer look like a woman...which is quite a common belief...uh-huh, right! :tomato:

I can't really be bothered to argue with people, it's a waste of time anyway, it generally won't change their very narrow-minded view and even if it did, you can guarantee that the very next day, you'll be changing yet another person's view...and another...and...well, you get the idea.

x2.

My initial dream in lifting was to be big enough and strong enough that people thought I was on steroids while still being natural.
