aaaaand.. here's the big one. Sigh.--

7-9-2022
o.. I REALLY tried to avoid this. But for the sake of accountability, transparency, and showing people that consistency and dedication can get the job done. I'm going to post my before pics WITHOUT progress pics. Now that my post injury workout is being posted, my diet is being posted, my thoughts WHILE working out is being posted, and my coach recommendations are being posted... well fck it.

I thought I was going to jail, geared up, ate like a pig, and gained to 230. Hurt myself and was out of the gym on injury for 5 months. I'm definitely a product of "do as I say and not as I do."

This is me after PCT, back down to 212 @ 30% BF. I fucking hate myself at this point. I was injured, and a fat fck. Anyway, here's to getting back to where I want to be, and showing other's that ANYTHING is possible.

THANKS "buddy"

For "encouraging me" to embarrass myself so that other's can see the struggle is real. Even if you have the knowledge, it doesn't mean you use it. I'm the prime example.

And yes, my profile picture is me, just a long time ago.

not sure what else to say other than my previous credibility online now feels like total shit. This is what happens after addiction, 2 divorces, and a toxic life of off and on "caring " about how you look and "taking care of business. "

Here's my follow up after that fucking shit show:

My addictive personality says, "I better see results in 3 weeks!" BUT, I know that's not realistic. That's what "almost " sobriety does for you. Brings things into perspective.

Anyway. It's all out there. Nothing but progress from here on out. All you fuckers watching will be amazed. I may talk to myself during workouts, but it's meant to churn the mind to get results.

Anyway, if you can handle the rambling. You'll see my work and effort with Fred Biggie Smalls' direction turn to results. Yeah, it's kind of a schill, but credit will go where credit is due. He's my friend and if he can help reprogram my fucked up brain then I'll refer that mofo to anyone.

Thanks for listening gang.

Actually had some energy tonight, maybe due to running late on meals or schedule, or different crowd and not as crowded. Who knows. We'll see what time works for tomorrow.

Lastly, I missed meals today. Gotta get back at it tomorrow.

Following your thread. Congrats on landing a coach/trainer!
Thanks! I started the diet on 7-3 and the routine 7-5. 12 days in and I'm down 6.5 lbs already. Check in is the 28th. I'm curious to see what my scans are going to be like. Still amazed at the amount of weight coming off. And this isn't water weight, I had 2 weeks in the gym before meeting with Fred and started to clean up my diet a little, but NOTHING like what he has me doing now.

Morning Weight 202lbs. Down 6.5 lbs 13 days
Day 5-> never made it back

Went to the gym and the leg room was packed with big boys putting in some work. Note, don't go at 3:30pm.. ever. If I don't make it tonight, then I've got to work out tomorrow even though it's supposed to be a rest day.

Cheated on diet and had a bowl of ice cream AND chips an quest dip. I was starving and couldn't resist.
-----

-This week: 135x8, 185x8, 205x8 (got light headed), 205x5 (lightheaded bad, dropping weight), 185x7 +progress -coach smacked my wrist said I'm lightheaded bc my blood sugar is low. I didn't eat morning meal before coming in. Also wants my ass to get lower and stick it out further. Gave me am Achilles stretch and inner groin/hip stretch to help with mobility.

Stiff leg deads 5 x 8-10 3 sec negative each rep

-Last Week: 200x15, 290x15, 290x15, 290x15
-This Week: 200x15, 290x15, 290x15, 290x7 -fatigue showed only on last set, not sure why. Blood sugar is better but no fuel from food I'm assuming.

Lying leg curls 5 x 12 3 seconds negative each rep

I am glad you are sticking to the diet. I started up with my coach again this week. I hadn't message much on the other log because of all the hoopla there. I will post some progress pictures here. I am wrapping up my third week of test 400, 1cc/wk, pinning 0.5 mL every 3 or 4 days.

Focus on the forum that supports you best! That's awesome your back with your coach and for the record, I've only cheated twicein almost2 weeks, last nightwas major, before that on like my 5th day I had four (4) chocolate covered raisins.

I'd love to be on gear right now, but coach said wait. I'm gonna talk to him about it when I get scanned again. My only thoughts are that he wants to see where my body either is or can get to with a dialed in diet and natural.

My blood showed my test at 430 and that was 6/30, I have a follow up Dr. appointment on the 28th. If he doesn't script me anything, then I'm going to start hoarding anything and everything for the "just in case" as I have the funds.

Edit: wanted to add.... t400? Ouch. Tried 1 shot of that shit when IP put it out like 20yrs ago, was crippled for a week with fever. That an his tren 150.. fuck that. Never made it outta bed let alone to the gym.
