Hmmmm everybody's body dysmorphia is different. Mine has gotten a lot better.
For me I grew up being weak & very skinny. So I hated anything close to skinny.
About 5 years of lifting & I'm finally happy. I mean I haven't reached the goals I want yet since they are only attainable with steroids.
But at my weight & frame, I feel pretty strong and finally tshirts fit nice and tug which is all I wanted since I was a kid.
The reason I want to hop on steroids at this point is no longer body dysmorphia but because my mindset is...why not be the top 1% in everything. Why not experience what it's like when I only have one life to live.
So long story short what I'm trying to say is, you may feel better when you start getting very near your genetic natty potential.
Goals for 2019
Hit 6 figure income from business
Have 100k saved up
Fuck 3 girls
Continue healthy habits (Wake up 5-6am, sleep early, no porn, lift, do mma, wear penis extenders, meal prep,etc)
Age:21 Height: 5'11-6ft

- I have absolutely hated my body for the last 2-3 years (the entire time I've been on GLL). It's a massive point of insecurity for me, and recently I've realised that despite getting stronger and adding muscle, I'm no more happy than I was when I could only deadlift 40kg (I can deadlift 170kg now). I feel like I'll never be "big enough".
So despite all that progress, I don't feel any better about my strength/body; in fact, I hate my body more and more as time goes on. So I'm chilling out for a bit, focusing on learning to like my body, and slowly cutting down to a place where I have abs. I like my body when I'm skinny, the issue is I hate it when I bulk and look chubby. So I'll lean out and then *slowly* lean bulk from there, making sure I never get fat and never dislike my body again.
It fucking sucks hating your own body - you're stuck in your body, so you need to get to a place where you're happy with it. Bulking (and getting fat) hasn't ever made me happy.
LOL Don't be a sad cunt.
gimme a few days I'll make a video regarding this.

I've actually enjoyed the gym this week (normally I use my workouts as punishment for not being big enough).
Look forward to your vid though bruh
It has taken me 5 years to reach my gym goals.
My goals are:
The reason for this taking 5 years instead of 1 year is because I went through the exact same shit as you. I was unhappy with my bodyfat, and felt inferior because of all the ripped dudes on the internet, including GLL.
So I bounced between cutting and bulking and making very minimal progress. Compounded by the fact that when I was going out to bars in Hollywood girls liked me better when I was skinny and ripped. A pretty boy.
But then I would see a tall jacked masculine guy and would feel intimidated by him and usually they would have a really hot girl with them. The guys usually weren't ripped either, just stacked.
So my psyche was torn by 2 extremes and this led to me spinning my wheels for 5 years.
I don't know how guys get ripped and maintain their muscle so well. I think it's the camera that makes them look bigger, because when I see ripped internet guys in videos on IG or something like that, they look tiny and sucked up like I did.
I've tried everything under the sun. You name it I've tried it all and literally nothing worked better than committing to one thing for a long period of time. During my bulk, I have decided to just eat the fact that I'm gonna look like a "built-fat" person and focus solely on gaining muscle and strength naturally.
The only times that I've been able to pull off the lean gains when bulking is when I was using SARMS, but naturally I've never ever been able to bulk 100% clean OR cut 100% clean either.
Now my strength is at:
I've committed to this bulk no matter what I look like in the short term because I know that in the long run, I'm headed in an upward trajectory anyway. I know for a fact that if I reach the numbers above and then cut, I'll look way better than when I started. This is my second time trying this strategy and it's been the best strategy that I've ever tried period.
My point is this-
I think it's a waste of time cutting until you're perfectly happy with your strength and size even if you're chubby right now. I'm talking about over all diameter of your arms, disregard the fact that you don't have veins yet. Just focus on the size of your muscles.
In fact it might be better to go a little beyond your goal just because you're gonna lose a little bit when you cut down. I would only stop bulking if I became absolutely hideous and fat. Being a little chubby with blurry abs or maybe zero abs is a sacrifice I'm willing to take for the sake of my ultimate mission.
I wanna be 170 @ 10%
Then I'll use a little bit of gear to get up to 175 @ 10%
Look, maybe some guys can lean bulk without getting fat, but I'm not one of them. And I can bet that there are some of you out there banging your head into the wall struggling with the same body image disorder and frustration with lack of gains in the gym.
I either have average or below average genetics OR the internet is distorting what a natural bodybuilder looks like.
I seriously doubt that there is anyone who can bulk up and make significant gains while staying under 12% BF completely drug free. No fucking way jose. Maybe those with elite genes, but not the average joe like me.
Changes are you're an average joe just like me when it comes to bodybuilding. Beware of bouncing back n forth because you'll waste time. A lot of time.
Based on my 5 years of experience in spinning my wheels, Pick one and stick with it for months Andy.
Cutting is faster than bulking. You can loose 5lbs of fat in a month no problemo. Easy.
You can't bulk 5lbs of muscle in 1 month.
Unless you're pushing 18% or 20% and look really fat, I would think twice about abandoning my quest for mass just for short term gain.
Unless getting swole and being strong isn't important to you, but it was for me.
I loved the way I looked with abs and veins, but I felt like a weak pussy. If you wanna ultimately look like a spartan, it might be worth bulking up until you make substantial gains that will endure your cut in the future.

Been away for a bit so just catching up on your log. The post about the ginger girl was dope, it both made me want to jack off and start nofap (think I'll try nofap). Keep this log going as long as you want to, I for one love it.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
