I didn't watch the weather forecast today and got soaked when it started pouring without warning.
Just finished riding my bike for 40 minutes, doing 3 sets of 35 crunches, 2 sets of 30 side leg raises, 60 seconds of toe reaches and 3 sets of 7 leg raises.
This week and the one that just ended were soul suckingly busy. I want to measure my weight by the end of this week to see how much I've lost since last month but spending two weeks without a proper work-out will probably mean I haven't lost anything. Oh well, at least my belly is smoother and my butt is tighter~
I just ate an entire 14-inch cheesecake. It was half triple chocolate and half plain/strawberry and it was really tasty.
It'd be funny if these were the same person.
who cares this thread will be on page 0 forever lol

Please excuse the horrible camera and lighting, but I got a new place recently and I decorated my desk! I wanted to share it with Samachan because it came out very cute. Those little easel things meant for holding picture frames turn out to be a great way to display artbooks. The only hard part is deciding which two to put up there.
One of these days I will bite the bullet on a real camera so I can stop using my terrible phone camera. If anyone has a recommendation for a good digital camera that is cheap and easy to use I would much appreciate it.
Is that Akiyama popping out of the mug? Very cute.
>If anyone has a recommendation for a good digital camera that is cheap and easy to use I would much appreciate it.
Good digital cameras aren't required to show off this kind of stuff unless you have a collection valued in the tens of thousands of dollars. Save the money for when you need that camera to take pictures of japanese cosplayers at convention grounds.
well I ain't no photographer but I have a Nikon D90 and I went lens shopping a while back so I learned a little bit about this whole camera thing
You can find pretty much all good/mainstream Nikon cameras here:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Nikon_DSLR_cameras
Anything "Mid-range" or lower and 2010-ish and late would do.
It's probably better to take something less professional but newer over something high-end but older.
A lot of newer models are virtually indistinguishable from older models. Like, for the very newest stuff, literally all they add is wifi support. But there are times when there is a notable tech leap between models. Luckily wikipedia documents all that in the articles so researching this is very easy.
When picking a lens buy something with an adjustable focal length and not a fixed-length pro thing. The ones with the biggest range are generally regarded for "beginners" and so they almost always have built-in AF so you don't need an expensive camera with an AF motor.
My personal lens recommendation is something like the very popular 18-105mm one or the very popular 18-140mm one. Both are bulky but they get the job done and have a very wide range. 18mm is relatively short/wide, especially for an adjustable lens, anything above 80mm is telephoto and allows you to really "zoom in". Having a lens that can do both is handy. Quality suffers, but it's not something you'd probably notice.
Also be warned: All this stuff is VERY expensive.

That reminds me, the Guderian figure I ordered in 2015 still hasn't arrived. I hope it gets here soon…
A worn-out used old smartphone probably has a better camera than whatever he used to take that. Just look at that resolution and filesize!
Did you get kicked out by your "best friend"?
>>23496>Is that Akiyama popping out of the mug? Very cute.
It is, and thanks! I really want to get more plushies, that's the only one I have but I love her.>Good digital cameras aren't required to show off this kind of stuff
Yeah you are right, it's probably not worth the money right now. But I also travel a fair amount and would like to be able to take better pictures when I do. I suppose next time I am gonna be on a trip I'll consider getting a real camera.>>23498
Thank you icicle~
That's pretty much exactly the kind of advice I was looking for.>>23499
I uh, didn't know there was such a figure…
File: 265408.jpg (110.55 KB, 600x831) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
Uh she has tons of figures. I also have all her books. Panzer Leader is one of my favorite books in general.
>>23500>A worn-out used old smartphone
That is exactly what that picture was taken with actually. I scaled the image down so it wasn't retardedly big though.
Hey I have that figure! She used to be a mainstay on my desk but her tank shell kept falling if I bumped the desk too hard so she has to stay on a shelf now.
Maybe they finally tied the knot and settled down in a better place.

Yeah I really want to replace the shell with a real rifle round, like I did with this HomuHomu's stamp. It's been taking a while, but I still can't wait for her to arrive!
That's actually a really cool idea, I dunno why I haven't done it yet! Also that's a cute homu figure.>I still can't wait for her to arrive!
I don't want to let you down anonymous but if it's been 4 years you might want to look into ordering another one…

No, no, I have faith. The store I ordered her from shut down in 2017 so she must have been somewhere on the high seas coming for me for at least two years. I'll hold my ground for as long as I need to for the cavalry to arrive!

I'm a NEET of 15+ years and my parents are getting a (rough) divorce.
Been using historical research for escapism. Gonna read about US marines in China and a Prussian Confederate General today.
Also might watch that Alita: Battle Angel movie because James CaI am a spammer, please tell me to leave, kudasai!n is the only Western director I trust with anything anime related.
Also while I fall completely behind on Summer 2019 shows I find myself re-watching old Pokemon episodes for nostalgia.
My parents have been separated for 15+ years. I've been a NEET for at least half of that.

I was taken out of school and unschooled around 4th grade, so around 9 years old.
So you've received no education since the 4th grade?
Titanic must've made Yuno cry really hard huh…
I've heard it's a better adaptation of Gunnm than most western adaptations but there are some changes that some people didn't like. It can't really be helped at this point I guess.
And also uh yeah it always sucks when there's turbulence at home. My parents are long dead but I've seen my fair share of that crap and it seems they rarely have consideration for the feelings of the real living people they created against their will. Ganbatte.
No official education.
I've learned from my parents and done my own research though and I can keep up in English and History with people who have received education on them.
However I know jack shit about math. I struggle with multiplication and don't understand how division works.
I'm pretty sure you've asked him this before but I've known more than one person like this who had homeschooly families or who had to work on their farms and got homeschooled because of that. It's actually not that rare in some states.
Reminds me of that book by that lady whose name I forget who teaches at Harvard or something now but got raised in the mountains in Utah or something. I should read it sometimes.
It's a stupid thought but when I was younger I used to wish that I'd rather be orphaned.
I don't think children ever really have stupid feelings. They react more honestly to the situation they're in than adults.
Is that shit even legal?
Also, you could probably get an entry-level job as like a waiter or something, those don't have real education requirements most of the time. Heck, even a clerk if you wanted.
But like in that case, can you apply to university and so on? Without a high school diploma? How do you, like, continue?
working is the same as dying
How are you going to afford nendos and games and good food without working
i died a long time ago
just waiting for what's left to rot away
Well if you work you'll die again and so you'll be alive
being a rotting corpse is fine
don't want to die again
no its not because you have to watch anime and post on my site bitc h
don't need to be alive to do that
thanks to uncle sam and the S&P 500 my corpse actually gets slightly fresher each year
why would it be unfortunate? which do you identify more comfortably with?

it's not like we can do anything to you if you aren't
and if you're not it'll be a breath of fresh air to have a competent professional blogging about watching box sets while driving around in a hummer H1 with anime decals and charging all the women who pile into it for wasting your time
or whatever non-losers do it's not like i'd know since i'm a kusoneeto who looks down on people with jobs as the real losers
you don't need to put on a false face to fit in on a website where nobody has a face
I wish I could go back to being a NEET, I hate my job.
Does your job require you to "put on a face"? I work pretty manual labor in which I don't have to speak to anyone and can listen to K-On songs while I work. When I have to talk to my boss and coworkers it is awkward sure but no more so than going to the store or something.
Under the guise of curing my social retardation I got peer pressured into asking some cute girl for her number about a week ago and got very politely rejected. Politeness aside it's been eating away at me for like a week now and I hate it. Is this really what finding a 3D relationship is supposed to be like? Because it makes me want to die.
You're supposed to be persistently asking out every girl you're attracted to with the inevitable majority of rejections bouncing off your iron self-esteem until someone who is willing to try you out goes out with you and then you have to keep doing it to keep her interested until you can agree to commit to each other. Being into 3DPD always seemed like a curse to me.
You're more likely to get a get along with a girl you're already comfortable with though. Why not ask one of your female friends out to the movies?
What if I'm attracted to a frigid genius tall elegant sexual WMD chinese older sister but there's a chinese younger brother who constantly blocks any and all of my attempts of asking her out even though she's into me?
My self-esteem is made of jelly not iron.>Why not ask one of your female friends out to the movies?>female friends
>>23522>Prussian Confederate General
Colonel von Borke? I don't think any Germans reached a general rank in the CSA Army. I've always found it a bit unfortunate how underrepresented the huge cohort of immigrant soldiers in the Civil War is in the popular imagination though. Aside from the tons of second-generation immigrants, part of the reason I tend to think of the war as our own belated revolution of 1848 is all the veterans of 1848 who fought in it. There were bona-fide French zouaves and Polish winged hussars and stuff fighting on American soil. Cool shit that too few people know about.
Sounds to me like you're just overworked honestly.

Hey now while I think having a "shut in identity" is kinda silly I do know how anonymous feels. I end up getting down on myself when my life becomes too busy for me to devote time to my hobbies.

Ah, you're right. Not a General.
Hence why I ought to read his memoirs.
And yeah, I definitely agree. You also have the Irish born Confederate General Patrick Cleburne, when Irishmen are often associated with the Union.
It's a shame Japanese immigration only started after the Civil War. I think I found like one Japanese guy who enlisted in New York in a non-combat role and that's it for ethnic Japanese in the war. There were plenty of Chinese Confederates and Unionmen however.
aw no :(

My life is quite similar to yours, anon. I've always been an early bird, so I take care of most of my stuff in the morning, before even leaving for work, meaning, when I get home I can take the rest of the day easy.
At work, fortune smiles on me for I have problems dealing with more intimate relationships, but not so much with professional and more distant & formal ones such as with work colleagues. I'm not really bothered much by them and it's generally a straigthforward relationship. It seems you're struggling a bit here. I've always been a bit aloof and carefree. I can't really be bothered to worry about stuff that is not my job or within my interests. As such, I manage to get along well with everyone at work, simply by not sweating the small stuff, beginning with basic stuff such as greeting individually every morning, chitchatting and etcetera, to cooperating in team projects and crap. I also can't stand alcohol, due to traumatic past events, but also physically, just the smell makes me gives me low blood pressure and itchiness. I got coworkers to understand this and rather than shunning the fact that I don't go out it actually made them pity me. Win-win. To counteract this, I often invite them to a coffee shop near the office during lunch break and doing other stuff to pretend I care.
I once worked at a factory night shift and I'm thankful I got to go to college¹ and get a white-collar job, making dealing with all the bothersome stuff, well, less bothersome. Ultimately hugging my waifu at the end of the day makes it all worth it, for it was her who helped me getting through all of this S2 . Currently considering going for master's degree abroad in France² and possibly experience working in Japan in the not-so-distant future =).
¹an actual a viable option for eurofags. you can pay for tuitions earning minimum wage.
Oh, and for the last part, don't give it another thought. The anonymous online army maintains their duty of keeping normgroids out of imageboards, but the exact definition of which varies from person to person. For me it's someone with generic interests and goals, for others a wagenetorare, for some, anyone who isn't a virgin, and so on and so forth… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
where are you two coming from? why are you on this website? you're doing a really great job convincing me to ban everyone who posted in this thread and make these threads a bannable offense
it's very telling about the types of people that these threads attract when we DONT have people saying "norm" or "weeb" or "cuck" or "groid" on anime threads, or videogame threads, or the multitude of other threads that relate to the site's scope of discussion, but the one that doesn't somehow gets these people posting in it
hey geniuses - this is not 4chan. if you want to bring your retarded "culture" with you, go to literally any other website that is targeted to people as slow as you. if you don't have an interest in anime, manga, japan, etc, why are you here? If you only want to blog about how your life sucks or how you have no girlfriend or you want internet therapy, don't post on Samachan. this site is not for you.

Ah, my Beer Korbo figure that I pre-ordered like three years ago finally arrived but sitting in the hot sun while I slept all day drunk kind of melted the tape on the delivery box and I can't find my knife to open it because they're in my pants and I can't find my pants. I like using the boxes for storage and stuff so I hope I don't have to rip it open…
You only have one knife?
Shota are very important to my happiness!

No but I lost that one for like two years so I panicked a bit when I lost it again. I still can't find my pants so I just opened it with a hatchet. Wish I had a camera to post pictures but she's pretty nice. I think the colors on the actual figure look a bit better than the colors on the pictures actually.
I like how you used footnotes. Combined with the weird surrealism of the post it reminded me of Infinite Jest.
Going through all my figures I am ashamed to say that I no longer really care for a lot of them as much as I used to and I could really use the space. Selling them online seems like such a massive pain though, I wish there was some kind of RPG store where I could just sell my inventory at. Meanwhile there are like 4 figures I really want to buy…>>23636
Congrats, that looks like a really cute figure. I love her smile. I hope you find your pants soon, going outside without them must be really embarrassing.
Yeah, it's kind of a funny feeling to finally have her after so long. Like, the anniversary she was supposed to be released for was three years ago. Looks very nice though. I only have around twenty-five figures and I don't really buy many anymore since other than a few grails I've mostly gotten all the old ones I wanted from before I started collecting. I'd feel really bad about selling even the ones I've only ever opened once though.
I now realize that I recall very little from Spice and Wolf other than Korbo being an absolute treasure, it deserves a rewatch I think.
And I know how you feel about certain figures, I have probably 10 or 15 that I would never want to get rid of
But there was a time in my life where I had too much spending money and too much space in my apartment and decided to fill it with figures because I liked the way it looked. Several moves later I find myself feeling like a fool for it because I don't care to take half of my girls out of their boxes because I just don't care about them as much. They deserve a better home.
Yeah, I really like those huge collections but I don't really plan to ever have one myself. I can fit all my anime merch into maybe like fifteen banker's boxes. Manga and books are probably what I have way too much of more than any of the other myriad junks I collect.
I wish something like that existed where I live too
The Japanese really do have it great, I want to get rid of all these figures I have no use for anymore but I've had nothing but bad experiences with sites like Amazon and Ebay
I've been in a depressive state for 2+ months now where I don't feel any motivation towards my hobbies of art and music. I don't want to draw anything, I don't want to pick up any instruments and make any music, I just want to stare at my computer screen and play videogames. I wish my brain wasn't fucked up lol
What’s wrong with Ebay? I think it’s the closest thing to Yahoo Auctions in the west.
I've had tons of issues with buying and selling shit on Ebay, even recently with someone not shipping the $20 game I bought over a month ago
Oh crap the thread is on autosage now lol
Just when I was led to believe it was OK to even make the thread too…
Oh well it doesn't really matter so long as it isn't locked I guess?
It's on autosage because people are taking the 'blog' part of the blogthread to mean /r9k/ instead of just chatting and being a random thread.
>I suppose it can't be helped
You can read 15 posts above at Yuno's post and see why it can indeed be helped
By "it can't be helped" I mean that I myself can't do anything to help it. I have no control over other people making stupid posts.
It’s a war on love! Hey!

I wish I was Japanese so much sometimes. They don't know how good they have it online compared to most peoples.
How good do they have it online? Don't really understand why, do you just mean their ability to read manga raws? Or like, region-locked video games?
I know how you feel. The amount of times I've been stopped in my tracks going down an internet hole by inscrutable Japanese websites…
Why'd you delete your post saying you wish you were a girl?>>23696
Yeah I feel this way a lot too. I hate not being Japanese. I want to live in Tokyo!
You don't have to be Japanese to live in Japan.
Well to pretend you're Japanese you have to be asian and speak Japanese and I am not asian and I do not speak Japanese so I wouldn't fit in very well
Because it was a dumb post and I was very drunk when I made it
dunno why anyone would want to be a girl
sounds like too much trouble
If I could be a girl for a day I'd want to get gangbanged
why would you want to pretend to be japanese
then they'd hold you to all their retarded social rules and shit without the benefit of the doubt
and if your nihongo ga nigateda they'll think you're a zainichi korean or a chicom spy or something and bully you
best to be a gaikokujin who speaks good japanese
all the benefits of living in japan and none of the drawbacks of being japanese
After hearing that otaku can be kinda racist I’m not sure about that
spin spin sugar
hahaha what the fuck are those smarmy little fuckers going to do to you
just shudou them right in the anus with your massive gaikokujin no chinpo-sama and establish dominance
they probably won't go miyazaki on you unless you steal their 2D oyome-san and you're a decent guy so I doubt you'd do that
Cycled for 40 minutes, then did a variety of calisthenics exercises focusing on my core, glutes and legs. The price to pay for having such a hot body~
At the end of a soul-sucking week, but I still found time to exercise a little. I'll measure my weight tomorrow. I am hoping to either having maintained my weight or lost 3 pounds relative to last month. Look forward to my update~
hope you're doing strength training too
wouldn't want to lose too much strength while you cut
getting it back is way more of a pain than losing it
and a nip nong ching chong to you, young lady
Good job anonymous!
I'm going to buy a scale soon and I'm afraid to see how much I weigh. I lost about 50 pounds in 2017-2018 but since my big move I haven't watched my weight and I'm afraid some of that has come back. Maybe sometime soon I will swallow my fear of going to a gym. There might even be some cute girls there!
are you one of those creeps who stares at women's asses at the gym while they do leg raises or whatever
It was a joke anonymous! I may be trying to meet girls but my ideal gym experience involves neither looking at nor talking to anyone because I'm a self conscious loser. I can't approach the opposite sex unless I'm being pressured into it by friends.
yeah and they'll all be interested in the ripped attractive guys, not you LOL
And I slimmed down 3 pounds. This will do wonders for my line~>>23737
Calisthenics is the only strength training I'm doing. There's no point in spending money on a gym or equipment if you don't have the basic strength required to lift anything.
Besides, why would I want to be buff while wearing a skirt~?>>23762
Your job involves carrying heavy things around, doesn't it? I doubt you have the energy, time and money needed to go to a gym. Focus on core strengthening exercises since they'll help you keep a healthy posture which helps in carrying heavy things since the pressure will be redirected from your spine to your core. I'm a fan of leg raises, side leg raises, planks and crunches. You could try those first so work is less strenuous and solve a third of your problem.
I don't have any background in fitness and the only thing I do is calories-in-calories-out while doing some exercises to have a basic level of strength and a toned sexy midriff.
I survived another week and so did you, congratulations Samachan.>>23771
Well then the gym is just like everywhere else and there's nothing to be afraid of! ;_;>>23772>Chronicle of manhood>wearing a skirt~
…no comment>Your job involves carrying heavy things around, doesn't it? I doubt you have the energy, time and money needed to go to a gym.
Not so much anymore actually, although it is still active work where I am standing or walking all day. You are correct about the latter statement though. I really just want to get rid of my pudge, and to that end I am gonna attempt to quit drinking on weekdays. I probably consume a large percentage of my daily calories in beer and such so maybe that will help.
Trashpicked a CRT and my sleep schedule is fucked, that is all.>>23783
I’m glad you’re getting by.
sounds like you can no longer escape your salad destiny
>>23783>I am gonna attempt to quit drinking on weekdays
You said this a year ago.
But vegetables are icky…>>23792
I really don't think I did but even so that doesn't make it any less of a good idea
I find intermittent fasting and portion management a lot easier than just drastic diet changes like eating salads every day and only having two glasses of Franzia when the kids are driving you mad instead of five.
I did intermittent fasting for a while and it worked quite well for me but it's no longer and option with my current job, I would probably die of heat stroke on my fast days.
A quick five minute jog and all my favorite core exercises. I am growing stro… I mean, sexier!~>>23798>>23799
If you exercise you can probably keep eating what you always eat and still lose weight (unless you're regularly eating more than what's required to keep your weight).
You can but it'll probably take forever to lose a noticeable amount without calorie restriction unless you're doing a shit ton of exercise. It's the healthiest way to lose weight though yeah.
>>23803>unless you're regularly eating more than what's required to keep your weight
Well, realistically speaking, he wouldn't have rebounded unless he does. The fact is that while calories aren't the end all be all of health in general they're more or less the end all be all of total weight. If you eat more than you burn up then you'll going to gain weight, whether in muscle mass or in pudge.
Cutting the sweet drinks and the beer is the best way to start. There are studies that show that human brains have serious issues identifying liquid calories as liquid calories unless they're heavy and creamy like milk, soup, or soy, especially if they're also cold, so stuff like beer and coke let you consume hundreds or even a thousand calories without your brain telling you to put down the fork. It's actually a weight gaining method for people who are underweight to constantly drink sugar water.
hearing japanese in real life will never not be strange
i've taken this thread off bumplock, please don't turn this into a pity party circlejerk
I saw a couple of black dudes speaking Japanese with each other while we were waiting for the bus in Tacoma once. It was pretty cool and I wished I was good enough to get in on the conversation.
I hate my life q_q
I actually need industrial quantities of pity but I never talk about it, so no-one ever pities me and the amount of pity I need keeps increasing every day. Please send me pity.

Are you making fun of me?
What? No I legitimately think it's admirable if people are able to be self-fulfilled and overcome the biological drive for a relationship. I am just not so strong-willed and have come to accept that.
Why would you be interested in a 3D woman who wouldn't approve of your hobbies?
Funny how Yuno says 'don't pity and circlejerk' and people instantly start feeling sorry for themselves

A light jog around the house, followed by a battery of calisthenics exercises. Yes, it's the Monte Cristo method. And it makes my butt so sore~!
Then I spent some more calories thanks to samachan. I loved this face enough to make a crop of it for my collection! Ah, Max, getting the best of both worlds… Lucky you!>>23804
Assuming you do 30 minute light workouts 5 days a week while consuming the required amount to stay at your current weight, you'll see some results relatively quickly but you'll plateau just as fast since you'll no longer be at a caloric deficit for your new, lower weight. Personally, I'm at a healthy weight and am only doing this to improve muscle tone and posture (and to get all the boys and girls to gawk at me~!), so my goals are almost definitely a lot shallower than someone looking to lose weight.>>23815>Cutting the sweet drinks and the beer is the best way to start
I've never been a fan of casually drinking soft drinks and I rarely if ever drink any alcohol. I do drink a lot of milk but I eat little enough that it doesn't make a dent.
>There are studies that show that human brains have serious issues identifying liquid calories as liquid calories unless they're heavy and creamy like milk, soup, or soy, especially if they're also cold
I've heard about this and it doesn't surprise me in the slightest.
It looks like a joke more than anything
Also, Lolicon tend to have this persecution complex, they can be so annoying!

Well yeah, I'm mostly talking to yuyu there since he's talking about gaining weight. Beer and coke have to go if you want to lose weight. Wine or whatever isn't that bad so you can always go for some whiskey if you really need the alcohol hit.
Hmm, what OTHER internet loser does this remind me of…?
>>23902>Beer and coke have to go if you want to lose weight.
Speak for yourself, fattie. I drink just as much beer when I cut as when I bulk and I don't have any trouble. It's like a bag of crisps or a small sandwich in a bottle. Average beer has only about 50% more energy than wine per serving. Calorie restriction is all about portion control and anyway since alcohol itself is the most energy-dense component of any booze stronger than kvas it's a lot easier to overdrink wine than beer.
kvas is my favorite drink
what does it taste like
sweet-ish beer… kinda
>>23905>average beer only has about 50% more energy than wine per serving
Right but then you look at the size of wine servings and beer servings and then compare with how much beer you can easily drink. Nobody selled canned wine but beer cans are cheap as dirt for packs of twelve or twenty and you go through them almost without thinking. Coke isn't that calorie-heavy either, the point is that you can drink tons of it without realizing how much you're drinking.
>a bag of crisps
Crisps are the second thing that have to go.
dunno how you guys get fat, i never watch what i eat and im skinny
Didn't you regularly go to the gym though?
yeah i do whats that got to do with anything smart guy
Well that must be real nice huh!
Also didn't you say you only ate like 1000 calories a day?
Having activities help to burn all those calories.
The average girl has a nearly nonexistent appetite.
i eat two meals a day though

I dunno what constitutes a meal.
When I eat four poptarts or a bowl of cereal is that a meal?
If so then I eat four to five meals a day and I'm skinnyfat. I have a beer belly and fat thighs but you can see my ribcage.
I think if I didn't eat unhealthy shit then I might be skinny no matter how much I ate.

I'm going through my Yuno canon version 3.6f notes and it says here that you have a job that's making you so busy you don't have time for anything else besides work eating and sleeping.
Young lady, are you sure you're telling us the truth?

Go away, mother. It's because of you that I have a rough time controlling my appetite in the first place.
How many packs of poptarts do you go through in a week..?
I used to be like that too up till I was around twenty when I got on the ale and cider diet. Some people never balloon up and it all goes to their belly.

At least one eight pack. Sometimes two eight packs.
I'm like 155lbs.
theres a gym not even a mile walk from my place, ive been going for 2+ years now
Learn to eat some actual decent food
You'll save money and be healthier for it and it'll taste better anyway
The smallest of activities makes a world of difference, even something as simple as walking. I don't know the statistics but I would think that countries with a decent public transport would have a leaner population than those that relies on private vehicles. I have always been borderline underweight and I walk a lot in the past but since becoming a shut-in I've become skinnyfat. I used to subsist on two meals a day as well but nowadays I don't know if it's because of the quality of the foods I eat or sedentary lifestyle, I find myself getting hungry easier.
Today is day 16? 17? of being a NEET, I had to start adding extra cardio to strength days last week since all the boredom snacking is making me feel fat. I have all this free time now but no motivation to enjoy it. What's with that?
is your body mukimuki
not really, though i do have definition
i mostly just do cardio these days
I eat quite well, thank you. I keep in shape just so I can eat what I like regularly.
In short, I'm really not. The ideal is to have someone who I can share my interests with. but I'm willing to accept a tolerance for my being a weirdo rather than outright sharing that trait. And that tolerance is easier to achieve if you don't have loli dakis…
Also I'm pretty sure all the girls with otaku interests are either taken or so spoiled for choice that there is no way in hell they would consider me out of the thousands of other lonely nerds clamoring for them. Or they weigh 300lbs
Fortunately I actually don't like soda or chips. Aside from alcohol all I drink is water and my go to snacking food is fruit, cheese and bread. And my actual meals lately have mostly consisted of rice with various meats.>>23905
I will explain my logic
I drink something like 3-6 beers after work usually. The beers I drink tend to be 150-200 calories per serving. Just by saving the drinking for the weekends I am getting a significant calorie deficit on weekdays so long as I stick to water! And who knows I might be more productive since it is less enticing to just nap and become a vegetable when you aren't slightly drunk.>>23932
I wish I had definition
Well yeah, if you drink like an American of course you're gonna get fat. Comin home downtown from werkin at da factory uptown to watch da handegg game and chug you a big ol twelpack a bud light while da wifey be makin you a nice supper a mac n cheese and meatloaf to help wash down all that grog booze.
Yeah but if it's 200kcal a bottle it's probably not light beer. You might have a problem there.
Most of my go-to drinks are in the 7%-9% ABV range
And I guess it depends on how you define problem because it's not an actual dependence, and I hold my liquor fairly well. Seems to run in the family, that.
You might hold your drink well but your liver is another matter. I drink 2-4 pints a day myself though so take that as you will.
Some of the men in my family easily outdrink me and I know for a fact their livers are fine. Doesn't mean I am immune though, fair point.
>>23935>I wish I had definition
Literally the only way
Buy some dumbells and do some curls, squats, and planks and shit
The odd thing is how you don't even need to not be fat for people to think of you as muscular. Maybe some kinds are just into the gorilla physique.
I mean there's a difference between chubby flab fat and muscular gorilla fat
The strongman physique looks fucking powerful even though you're clearly really overweight, the fatass physique is just flabby and soft.
You need to have low body fat as well.
Friendly reminder to make two posts on /a/ for each one of your /z/ posts or else Yuno will shut down /z/.

you ever really want to yawn but force yourself to hold it in because there's a fly in the room
just cover your mouth with your hand. alternatively clean your room so no flies will want in.
don't worry it's ok since i know how to yawn with my mouth closed
