Thanks George. I actually hit my goal weight of 175 3 or 4 days ago and I am 18 days from coming home. Time to set a new goal.

It's time to buy new pants too. These 34s are in desperate need to be replaced with some 32s.

I'm back to introducing more cardio and clean up my diet but damn it, this shit is hard.

Not to mention I'm taking a break from TRT. I probably have another month of my natty test boosters and I may get some blood work to see where I'm at naturally and go from there.

I’m still alive. Finally found something I’ve been able to stick with and I’m noticing gains. 3 months ago I was sitting at 206 at 19%bf. I’ve been doing great on diet and workouts since then, gonna go get checked measured again first thurs of December

Keep it up. Find what works for you and stick with it.

I am doing a body comp test in December myself. I'll be on a cruise so I am doing it the first day. Cause I am sure I will blow my diet shortly afterwards. I am going to try my best to watch the carbs and sugars and still hit the gym on the boat but I am also going to enjoy myself too.

You still planning on getting out? How much time you got left?

What are everyone's goals?
Sitting back at 235# after gaining since I stopped the cut. As far as my lift goals
Squat- 385 donít see myself going much past 405
Bench- 365 is still my max. Able to move 315 for 4-5 without a spot. Iíve just hit a lull, but incline 1mr is 315 now so thereís that.
Deads- smashed 550 goal and pulled up 605 for 1 last week. Now I need to work on my form some more before I even consider going heavier.
Positives Are abs are making a decent showing and I got the remaining fat off of my bitch tits and now just need to fill in the lower portion of my chest and Iíll be pretty happy considering how bad everything was 6-7 years ago.

My body must be in hibernation mode for the winter because I can't lose fat for shit! I've been up 10lbs sitting at 193lb. I'm back in the groove with weight lifting and I'm satisfied that I retained all my lifting gains after coming off my supps. Either my size has decreased, which was to be expected, or this 10lbs increase is making me appear that way.

Trying to up the cardio and clean up my diet some. This time last year I was down to 183 but that was taking a really good fat burner. I'm trying to get there again without the fat burner since it's not something I can take long term.

I have been helping a few people and almost all think long and slow cardio is the way to lose weight. HIIT workouts and weight lifting are far better for weight loss and take a lot less time. Diet is key to losing weight and if you are over 35-40 intermediate fasting seems to work well for the majority of people.

Some of you guys have some impressive weight loss and lifting numbers. Keep it up

For me, diet is the biggest. If I am dieting and in turn reducing calories, I get weaker, I can tell in the weights. But I shed fat pretty well and can still maintain 75% in the gym. When I am eating, smartly, I can gain strength (certainly my TRT helps there) at a nice and steady rate.

I had bloodwork done today:
178lbs dressed in winter clothes
BP was 120/80 and I haven't taken a BP med in well over a month.
I'll know my cholesterol numbers in a day along with my T

But I have had so many compliments. Even my blind as a bat Grandfather says he can tell by the shape of my blur to him that I in great shape. My brother came to visit me yesterday and was shocked yet again at how good I look. I went to buy new suits and shirts the other night. I am gonna rock the fuck out of it on this cruise next week.

Fighting a couple minor injuries. Knees are doing some funky shit when I am laying down on my side; walking, lifting etc feel fine. Slightly pushed too far last week and have slight shoulder pain in the right...still did shoulders yesterday and feel okay, just not great. I have some tennis elbow or something in my left forearm that has prevented me from doing biceps and some back (pull) exercises in over a month. I tried a brace yesterday...didn't help.

A well-deserved humble brag.

More to my point, at least in my mind, cardio isn't a long-term weight management tool. I hate doing it, and the more on point my diet is, the less-often I have to.

You're spot on.

Sadly diet is the hardest part for me, but cardio is no problem.

Started keto just after labor day. With a snag from Thanksgiving, have lost 25lbs. Have another 15-20 to go. Goal is ~210.

How I more or less started the year to the way I finished. https://instagram.com/p/BdZA45lnTtA/
Goals this year:
Hit 400 on bench or close to it, keep hammering away on squats, get some god for saking bicep peaks and continue to train with intensity and lean out.

Great work!

I am down 25lbs in this past year. 200 down to 175 and holding. Went from 36s to 32s. Off BP meds for the first time in 10 years and my last check up I was a 118/78. Off cholesterol meds too for the first time in 6 years. My LDL ca use some work but the doc has some theories on why. My B12 numbers are WAY down and believed to be caused by prolonged use of Prilosec. Upping my B12 should help my liver and help my LDL. Also a detox of my liver and upping the B12 should help clear my plateau at 174 and let me finish off dropping the last of my belly fat.

These are from our trip in December.


down from 36s into 32s





I just got back to Africa and have been out of the gym for 2 weeks now. Tomorrow is day 1 again and I am going for even more gains/losses this year. I am taking it one R&R at a time.

Damn Keith. I'm completely jealous. I've been struggling for a long time with my progress. I'm satisfied with the weight I can push in the gym but my diet is total shit and I can't trim the fat.

Awesome work

I thought what the hell is 22LR................then as I went to type it in went derppp. You guys appear to be doing well. Hey at least we are all trying and haven't just given up like a lot of folks our age.

This is going to be the year I get down to my lifetime goal of 220. I need to drop about 20 ish. I have done well in keeping around 230-240 even for the holidays and every year I have lost about five to ten pounds but I need to get serious. I should have pulled this off last year.

Weighed yesterday and was back at 239.00, my before holidays weight where I got to 246. I do low carb and just kept screwing it off last year but not this year. Every time I eat bad I think back on it and it is never worth it. I mean hell there is nothing I can't get in low carb now days so if I am craving it, I am just going to make it. Lowcarbbreadcompany even takes the pain out of breads and such. Seriously, no violations until I am at 220! I told my wife Mexican once a month but not even going to do that. She DGAF either as she really prefers eating at the house anyways. I think I need a rowing machine and stationary bike so I don't have to drive to the gym unless I am lifting.

That might make it too convenient, though...
