I was out of the gym for along time and I let myself get into pretty disgusting shape.About 4 months ago I started to do somthing about it and im pleased to say I have lost 61lbs.
A big part of my weight loss program was joining an on line support group and it gave me a lot of motivation. Problem is the people there dont understand when I complain of losing two inches from my arms,they think thats a good thing.OK in my case I guess it was but I want my arms back.I have had to face the truth,I didnt just gain weight I gained weight and lost muscle.
I thought I had to lose about 40lbs from 262 to return to my collage weight.Well im 201 today and still have a bit of a gut,I lost a lot of muscle over the years.I did the obvios thing and started to lift again.Its going pretty well,I am getting stronger and a bit of the build is returning.
So I came here hoping to find the same suport I found on the diet site but from people who can relate to my desire to be strong too.Im 44 in september so I dont imagine It will be the same as it was in my twenties but I will give it everthing I have.I hope to lear some things about over 40 training here.
Thanks for reading this and good luck with your own efforts.
