New Guy Intro. Started TRT, Had No Symptoms


#1

what’s up guys? short back story… I’ve been eating like complete crap and drinking heavily for years. I’m 28 years old, 5’ 9".
so… I met the love of my life 11 years ago, and after that I kinda stopped giving a shit about what I put into by body. my wife gained a lot of weight and I gained quite a bit also. after about 6 years my wife gained 50+ pounds and I honestly don’t know how much I gained cause of never cared.

a couple years ago my wife decided enough was enough and lost 55lbs in about 10-12 months and looks hot as shit now. I still kept eating junk and drinking all the time and was up to 222lbs.

I recently took blood tests cause my wife begged me to and I found out that I had low test. (probably from all the booze) and eating like crap. anyway. she started me on TRT 100mg a week. I’ve also been eating great most of the time and going to the gym and doing a combo of HIIT and a couple weight machines. I’ve lost 20 lbs in about 2 months of actually being pretty stricked. I still drink on the weekends.

anyway… I was surprised finding out I had low test because I have almost zero symtoms. no low sex drive whatsoever. I have a big beard and lots of body hair and a deep voice. I have been told forever that I have above average muscle for someone who has never really worked out. I started my injections 6 weeks ago and have already noticed an increase in strength and energy. could it be possible that my body just naturally needs only the near 200 ng/dl that it was producing??

Oh dude at 28 you probably could have reversed the low T by cleaning up your diet and lifting heavy shit on a semi regular basis.
