Do you think there is a big correlation with being overweight and being angry? Let me explain. I have been an either average or muscular build throughout most of my life. I started getting depressed (will explain another time-not important for this thread) and stopped going to the gym. In the last few years I have gradually put on the pounds. I probably weigh 20-25 lbs. more than I should. Now, dont picture Jared from Subway back in the day, but a muscular guy who has a bit of a gut and chin. So, I have found myself being increasingly angry in the field, losing friends by being extra-confrontational and being quick to call people on their BS when they are lying to me. I know that I have been overreacting quite a bit, but this is where I am right now, so thats whats coming out. And the troubling part is thats its a snowball effect. The more friends you piss off, the angrier you get, deepening your problem. Anyway, I finally told myself the Happy Fairy isnt going to appear at my door and sprinkle me with Happy Dust; I have to make some changes in my life. I have felt gross carrying around this 20+ extra pounds, so I knew working out was a top priority. I finally hauled my ass to the gym today (early afternoon to beat the 5PM crowd and to not let myself make excuses for a 9PM workout). I did really well on the weights and even hopped my chunky ass on the treadmill and put in some good running/walking efforts there. I felt very refreshed coming out of the gym and was actually in a decent mood. I was flirty/charming with a couple cashiers, running errands after working out. I know I am still chunky, 1 workout is only a start, but I felt a lot different. After working out, are there some chemicals released in the body that put you in a better state of mind or is it the psychological feeling of physical satisfaction?
