I've fallen off the bandwagon. I no longer like lifting... I just don't care anymore. :(

For reference I've taken comparison pictures from when I was in my prime to where I am now (I haven't lifted seriously in over a year). I'm the same weight, just the muscle weight I've lost has been replaced with fat loss. I think it might be of some interest to folks here.

Will I ever lift again? I don't know... :drooling:

Why don't you care for lifting anymore?

I've been lifting for about 6 years now and I fell into a rut as well. Lifting just got insanely boring and I didn't see it as fun anymore. My body looked great I was comfortable with my weight I just wanted to maintain thats it. Having no goals made the whole thing seem like a burden.

Anyways long story short I found some other physical activities that could spark the flame again. I joined a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gym and I'm back to lifting and even working on my cardio really hard which I've never done before. I actually don't lift weights nearly as much because my body is so exhausted from everything else that I over train easily.

You did look more cut before, but you honestly don't look that bad now. You just look like a normal, non-weight lifter. You don't wanna train, no biggie....you may get the motivation back one day. If not, no sweat.

Yeesh. I am prone to this kind of thing myself, sometimes for long periods of time.

I don't know if these links will help but I hope so.

Lmfao...I didn't have much to add but that was my first reaction when I saw the pics. Lot of hard work was lost but yeah if you don't care or enjoy it anymore its pretty tough to force it.
