I'm a 25 year old male.
Last week I had to move back to the parents house. Why you may ask?
Well - I am prereq classes for med school. 14 credit hours.
Organic chem, physics and Biology.
I used to have a full time job but with my schedule I'll have to go down to part time working 2 days a week. My income monthly will be $1000 with taxes taken out.
With apartments, car payments, insurance. I'll be left with $250 a month. I am currently in a bulking phase so I have to eat a lot of clean (expensive) food. Whey protein cost $40 a tub which lasts 2 weeks. Basically each month will be a VERY tight budget and I don't know if I can budget it will enough.
I decided to move back to the parents house and feel like such a loser. Anyone else have to go through this?
The only physicians I've seen who put a premium on muscle mass and strength are orthopedists. Unless that's your desire, bulking up isn't that vital to "setting a good example" for your patients.
Check out Brett's article on that subject. I'll be 30 next month, and I'm currently living with my dad (my mom passed away two months ago) until I can get a better job and/or eliminate some of my credit card debt from college. There are many men these days still living with their parents and struggling to get on their own feet in today's economy. Hang in there brother!
Don't feel like a loser, it's not like your working 5 hours a week and have nothing going on and just want to sit in the basement ripping bongs and playing xbox. Your doing this to budget and further a goal for a better life ahead ie currently in schooling. There's a lot of people you're age who havn't even moved out of their parents house yet but nothing wrnog with that either. It's a tough economy and we all grow and mature at different times. As long as your bettering yourself and your situation and trying your best good for you.
I'm not quite understanding why you created this thread... do you want sympathy? Do you want people to feel sorry for you or something? I just can't see why you would ask someone "am I a loser"? Money is tight and you're currently attending med school, you are preparing for a successful career.. You shouldn't care if people think you're a loser, you're just doing what you gotta do.
A man is only a loser if he sits around bitching about the way things are without doing anything to make it any better. You seem to be moving forward toward better tomorrows so I'd say no.
I'd recommend you look at two other issues. One, what were your motives for this thread. If looking for sympathy then two, look at insecurity. If truly feeling like a loser because of what you describe then two, look at being overly prideful.
A man is only a loser if he sits around b******* about the way things are without doing anything to make it any better.

At this point in the game, 'bulking up' should be removed from your priority list.
Come now..he's storing fat for the future bad times, lol.
