The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Even that doesn't do that transformation justice.

    Not only is that an awesome transformation, it's an awesome transformation from anything - especially for one year.

    ****, I've gotta post again. Freaking AWESOME work. Hell, I don't even know if it's a 70 pound loss. More like a 90 pound fat loss and 20 pound muscle gain. Simply uncanny. I am EXTREMELY impressed.

    Wow. wow. wow. You certainly get the most improved award for the annual WBB awards and you're an inspiration to everybody on the boards.

    I could add a bunch of smilies and exclamation points but that still wouldn't reflect how impressed I am. That takes a lot of dedication and will power, so if you ever need a job, give me a call. That's the kind of willpower much of the world lacks.

    WOW!
    That is simply amazing!
    Are you sure it's you in both pictures?

    Just joking....seriously, I would never think it's possible to accomplish what you have in just 1 year.
    You don't even have loose skin.

    all I gotta say is that I'm ****en impressed, great work man, keep it up!!!!
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
