Back with an update. Since my last post through New Year’s my weight pretty much stayed the same. I did not stick to a diet as per my last update.
Since new years I have been on a cut. I had been waiting for my weight to naturally start to drop as that’s what I had read was many guys experience but it doesn’t seem to be mine, so I have started to really try take charge of my diet and not half-ass it. I’ve lost 10lbs and currently I am aiming to loose another 25 by my 40th birthday in June.
I have been lifting weights 4 days a week and have been making good strength progress. Overall my numbers are still in beginner territory.
I did get a Dexa Scan late November which is more accurate than the InBody I have been getting at my doctors.
Numbers weren’t too different but the Dexa had me at 32% Body Fat which is a little higher than the InBody. Which puts my Fat Free Mass at about 173lbs.
As far a my protocol goes I tried ED injections but really hated how many times I had to pin. I’ve switched to EOD and I now rotate between my belly and my delts.
Overall I feel great and I feel no negatives being on the EOD vs ED protocol. Improving my diet has had a large effect of how good I feel. Eat healthy and particularly avoiding sugars (and sugar crashes) has had a huge effect of how I feel.
Anyway, a lot of rambling and this post is mostly for my benefit but I’m also hoping some of this info can be helpful to anyone else on TRT that’s also worried about their weight. I had hoped TRT would just fix my weight and by itself it didn’t but it had given me the engery and motivation to do something about it.
