My School Crush Rejected Me – So I Got Shredded

Rejection can be a bitter pill to swallow, especially when it comes from someone we admire and desire. In high school, I had a crush on a girl who seemed perfect to me: smart, funny, athletic, and beautiful. We shared classes and interests, and I thought we had a chance to be more than friends. So, one day, I mustered the courage to ask her out on a date. She smiled at me, thanked me for my interest, and gently declined, saying that she saw me as just a friend. I felt stunned and embarrassed, as if a part of me had been shattered. I wondered what was wrong with me, why she didn’t feel the same way, and how I could move on.

At first, I tried to pretend that nothing had happened and that I was still cool with her. I acted casual and supportive, hoping that she would change her mind someday. But as days turned into weeks and weeks into months, I realized that my crush on her was not fading away, and it was not healthy for me to keep hoping for something that was not meant to be. I needed a new focus, a new goal, a new way to prove myself that I was worth more than just a rejection. That’s when I decided to get shredded.

Getting shredded meant that I wanted to transform my body into a lean, muscular, and defined shape, through a combination of weightlifting, cardio, and nutrition. I had always been active in sports, but I had never taken lifting seriously before. I started researching on the internet about workout plans, meal plans, supplements, and progress tracking. I joined a local gym and hired a personal trainer who helped me design a customized program that suited my goals, my schedule, and my physique. I invested in good shoes, clothes, and accessories that made me feel confident and motivated. I set up a calendar and a spreadsheet where I could record my workouts, my meals, my weight, and my body measurements. I also joined an online fitness community where I could share my progress, ask for advice, and support others who were on the same journey as mine.

The first few weeks were tough, both physically and mentally. I had to push myself harder than ever, lift heavier weights, and follow a strict diet that excluded many foods I enjoyed. I also had to deal with soreness, fatigue, and cravings that tested my willpower. However, as I kept going, I noticed small improvements in my body, my mood, and my confidence. My muscles began to show, my skin cleared up, and my energy levels increased. I started to feel proud of myself, for taking control of my life, for challenging myself, and for achieving something tangible that I could share with others. I also found that going to the gym became a stress-relieving activity, a way to escape from my problems and to focus on my goals. I didn’t forget my crush, but she became less important to me, as I realized that there were other things and people that mattered more.

After a few months, I had achieved my goal of getting shredded. I had lost over 20 pounds of fat and gained over 10 pounds of muscle, reducing my body fat percentage from 20% to 8%, and increasing my strength and endurance significantly. I looked and felt better than ever, and people noticed. I received compliments from friends, family, and strangers, who admired my physique and my dedication. I felt more confident, outgoing, and optimistic about my future. I also realized that getting shredded was not just about physical transformation, but also about mental transformation. I had learned discipline, persistence, resilience, and self-esteem, all of which would serve me well in other areas of my life.

Looking back, I can say that my school crush rejecting me was a blessing in disguise. It forced me to change my perspective, my priorities, and my actions. It made me realize that I could not rely on someone else’s approval or affection to be happy or fulfilled. It inspired me to set a new goal and to pursue it with passion and purpose. It taught me that rejection does not define me, but only challenges me to become a better version of myself. And, who knows, maybe someday I’ll run into my crush again, and she’ll see what she missed. But by then, it won’t matter as much, as I’ll have already won the greatest prize: myself.
