Some people might laugh when they hear the term manorexia, but they shouldn’t. This is something that was thought to have been hard to understand, at first, but there has been more and more people suffering from this, as times goes by. I, myself, definitely feel like I have had this problem almost every other day. Please allow me to go ahead and discuss this in a little bit more detail, so you can understand more about this condition. What this term is, is something that is used to describe a man who does not feel that they are not big and muscular enough the term may should familiar because it is a play on words about anorexia, another serious condition which give people the opposite thought, that they are not small enough.
This has been something that has been going on and can affect anyone that workouts, from new lifters to the most experienced bodybuilders. My own personal experiences started when I first hit the gym. I, of course, started weightlifting because I felt that I was too seal and I wanted to grow those big muscles and get huge. I had thought that maybe after the first couple months of weightlifting, that this feeling would go away, but it never really has. Sure, I am aware that I am bigger now, after many years of weightlifting, then when I first started. However, it doesn’t mean that I feel satisfied fully with the progress that I have made. From time to time, I will still think that I am still skinny, almost to the point of how I looked before I had touched a weight. Luckily, I do have people around me that reassure me that I do look much bigger than when I first started going to workout. This kind of positive reinforcement is good to have around you and it helps to make those bad days much easier. Something else that I started doing and recommend that you do would be to take progress picture. This may sound a little weird, but it is one of the most definite ways to have proof of something, is it not? By having these pictures around and reading about my press over time, it was easy to watch myself get bigger and have proof that I was not getting skinnier or smaller. Maybe it is a mind trick, or something to that extent, but I also find that taking measurements of my muscles and keeping some sort of log or journal can really help erase those bad feelings which we all get.
Remember, if you are currently suffering from this, I am with you. Although there could be a lot worse things that we can suffer from, this is something that is still very serious to the people who suffer from it. It is just tough for others to be on the outside looking in and understand the issue, which is a common misconception that can happen with anything. I wanted to speak to whomever is dealing with this right now. Be sure to keep positive people around you, track your progress with pictures, as well as documenting your results in some sort of journal or log. These positive steps can really help you when you feel that this condition is starting to set in. Do not let false feelings control your life, take the power back for yourself.
