First thing, I want to thank everyone at T-Nation for giving me the motivation to start back building my body the way that I want it. Whether you were a complete smart ass or almost like a mentor to other members, I took that and used it for myself.
Now onto my story:
I joined the Army back in 2004 when I was a fat kid. The army got me down to a whopping 170, but that wasn’t where I wanted to be. When I got off of an active status in 2007, I dropped all training and went back to doing what I wanted, not what I needed. I got back up to about 225. (not the good 225 either)
Well in February of this year I went to New Orleans, and had tons of pictures taken of my wife and myself. That’s when it hit me that I was out of control. I got back into town, and joined the gym the next day. The next day I found T-Nation. I lurked around and read, and absorbed the info in the threads, and got to work.
I’m back down to a not impressive, but non the least bigger (not fatter) than the average guy. 202lbs.
I really don’t have pics of me then that shows my body because I always hid it, but will post pics of myself soon.
