Interesting points! Tbh there are times where I'd absolutely love to ignore the dumbbells, but I'd rather work my entire body so I can function better.

Thank you for the tips and for the support! I appreciate it.


Forgot to mention that while for now my goal is to lose weight and to keep myself mentally and physically healthy, I'm going to try and get into bodybuilding after I've reached my first goal.

Even if you make absolutely zero gains and look like shit, you feel great after getting into at training regimen and usually sleep better. Nothing has done better for my mental health-- though I've also gotten quite a bit of gains.

I don't mind getting some gains, that'd be a bonus in my current state, but even if I don't I still feel proud from working out.

Also very nice to hear you've gotten gains, that's a lot of effort and that's something to be proud of.

It helps but if I had to pick between that and sleeping well/being motivated/ being less anxious I'd pick the mental benefits.
