I’m cool with that. You’ve got my respect and kind wishes on your gains and quest to collect proof. It seems like you changed your song overnight from “member’s gain reports with no pic proof have no value to me and should have no value to anyone else” to “they may have some value.” As long as you’re here to PE rather than stir shit up, you’re cool with me, and I misread you as having an alternative agenda of simultaneously making an excuse for your lack of consistency in PE over a decade and discrediting the gains of those who had been consistent over that same decade. I smelled this attitude of “it didn’t work for me, so it must not work for anyone.” But I guess I was wrong. Sorry to have been so presumptuous.
As an olive branch I think the key question for you to answer while resuming PE is: how can I make this a consistent habit that will lead to long term gains? Maybe you need to sift through thousands of old threads and assemble a personal picture evidence thread to convince yourself it’s a worthy cause to devote yourself to. Maybe letting go of the need for proof and making a leap of faith that it will work if you gain enough knowledge and attempt enough methods. Maybe something else entirely.
Holy SHIT brother. Thanks. No TP altering agenda here. If I’ve misled, please ask for clarification. I’m not doing it on purpose. In fact, I’m try very hard not to word everything properly. Listen, I have failed. I’ll reiterate. I’ve always failed in PE. I would ask you to believe that I’ve tried. I am NOT an example to follow. I won’t even try to encourage it. I hope that I can provide enough of what I call “proof”, which basically means, “as believable as possible documentation” here for my first time being active in Thunders. I want it documented for my sake. And to others who lurk or want more direction. If you felt presumptuousness, you are not alone. I get it from other places in life somewhat regularly. I admit this weakness. It is a perception that isn’t really who I am. If you read my back story, you’ll see that I have difficulties giving trust to others. I try to warn folks that I’m brutally honest. It’s very hard for me to be otherwise. As I’ve gotten older, I’m finding ways to be honest to myself and caring of others. For your second paragraph, I have a plan (subject to change always). Be diligent with hanging for the next month and measure to determine if changes are needed. I want to solicit accountability from caring members. I love someone asking me questions. Did you? Blah, blah. I am here to learn, not teach. Now, I hope I can make this clear without being offensive. Those who have been diligent gets more weight. I think Thunder’s would benefit from much more diligence too. That is my opinion. How does that sound? I want to give this an honest 6-month shot with hard work ok.
