What keeps you motivated? What makes you get up and eat all day and lift ridiculous amounts of weight? Is it the health benefits, the progress you see, women(or men for any ladies frequenting this forum) you want to impress, etc? For me, seeing progress keeps my engine running. When I'm liftin more, when I'm weighing more, when I can see it in the mirror. That's my biggest motivator, nothing makes me want to keep working for it like seeing progress. If I never saw results I'd give up and try again later on at a different time(which has happened in the past). Not now, no sir. Women is another big one, what guy doesn't start lifting weights to impress the opposite sex?
