39 year old ex-military. Football, track and wrestling in high school. Joined Army, jumped out of perfectly good airplanes and started wrestling for the Army. Then KAPOW! Injured....end of story...spinal cord injury in 2 places (C-5 & L4-S1 with 2 more discs disappearing), spinal stenosis and both ankles reconstructed.
Fast forward 20 years and 17 years on pain killers...legal and illegal. Almost died from the methadone mixture, so I have been off of the pills for about 1 year now. All of this information for what?
Well I am waking up and realize I am a fat slob. Gained 100 lbs. Recent testing done and my testosterone was like 158! So the V.A. doc is going to prescribe injections for me. Well along with the waking up and realizing I am a fat slob, I miss working out now. I have a gym membership and I am wanting to lose my freaking fat and get back into shape. It feels like an uphill battle and I understand this will be difficult.
Basically, I am looking for any advice on how to take advantage of my injections to lose my weight, lose fat, gain muscle and to change my life forever! Yes, I have read various information from here and other web sites, so please be patient with me.
