    What are some negative aspects to being built?

    General, and specific to you.

    Just wondering for when I get that far?

    Interested to see.

    Buying a suit when you have a 31 waist and a 50 chest, finding dress pants to for 28 inch thighs and a 31 waist..........$$$$$$$$ custom made time

    If you weigh a lot, then everything you do is tougher on your joints.

    If you are really built, you may lack some flexibility during certain movements.

    Your thighs might rub together.

    The more you weigh, the harder your heart has to work.

    That's about all I can really think of...

    Your chosen to pick up the heavy stuff a work, you can't fit in spots that you were once capable of doing. Nerds seek you for protection.

    Don't get so big that you decrease your range of motion. I mean you have to get seriously jacked for that to be an issue.

    Chicken breast boneless/skinless here is $14.18 for 6.4 pounds, its not too bad. Being big can be an inconvenience, and depending on your attitude/who you run into/who you hang with you may get harrassed. I actually find the opposite, people 'respect' me.

    My thighs, have rubbed together for years. I'm built compared to the average person but not how I'd like just yet.

    yup...buying clothes is a pain in the ass these days. I can't even think about buying a shirt unless it's at least a 2XL and you don't find many of them on the rack.

    General:
    - The assumption that you are a nothing but a healthnut meathead who isn't very bright
    - The assumption that you are a cocky asshole
    - Cost of food
    - Having people think your eating habits are ridiculous
    - Getting asked constantly for advice and then being seen as nothing but a healthnut meathead for giving such advice
