Mind trick or not, it was stated earlier (somewhere onthe site) that sometimes perceptional gaions are just as motivating as physical gains. Inches will come, give it time.

ynarevith73: (waving hand subtly) You will give it some time
HoustonMan500: I’ll give it some time

ynarevith73: (waving hand subtly) Gains will come
HoustonMan500: Gains will come

Ah, that ole mind trick gets em every time.
