    So how many of you guys used to be overweight

    Just wondering I myself was overweight from middle school up to about 25yrs old. Got in really good shape doing MMA then had a car wreak put it back on..I started trying to get back in shape at 37 I have done good but I almost get there and have a set back with some injury. I am closer now then I have been in awhile but now I have screwed up back so it will be 8 weeks before I cant hit the gym again. All I am doing is keeping my Test up and staying really strict on my diet.

    Well, I have been overweight all my life, due to genetics. I was a gymnast and I lost shitload of weight and my trainer still considered me overweight and told me how in the world I was able to lift all my weight, It seems I was not the regular gymnast.

    2 and 1/2 years ago I was 260lbs at 36-38%bf. Today I am 250ish at about 18%...I'm still chubby in my opinion.

    ^^THIS^^^ I have never been overweight and have always had to struggle to put size on. However now that I am in early 40's I can see the tides starting to change. Still have a fairly fast metabolism....

    My dad was like eat and eat 6ft and 145lbs when he died. He worked on the farm non stop and would eat anything and everything. I helped when I was younger and played football and was still barely making weight.. Plus side I was stronger than all the kids my age.

    I have the reverse problem. The first 20 years of life I was thin as a rail. The last 24? Not so much.

    Was always in good shape ...lifted....trained hard up tell I tore my rotator cuff in 96...mid twenties then...I was 230-235ish visiable turtle shell....didnt touch a weight or go inside a gym for 5 yrs.....ballooned too well over 300lbs...waist pants went from 32 to 46-48.....needless to say excelling in buffalo wings ...beer and Golden Tee didn't help my physique...

    In 01 I had some life changing events occur and some health problems due to my weight and excessive drinking and drive thru food...went for Dr visit when I thought I had a ear infection...turned out it was my 200/140 resting bp that was the problem...Dr told me I would be dead by 40...

    Next day I joined the new gym by my house ....I started with 5 min on the treadmill(its all I could do)and one body part for 3 sets of 20...revamped my diet etc...1,year later I weighed 180lbs....so 140lbs...I also went on TRT during that time due to my prior abuse which I never recovered from..

    Anyone can do anything they want if they commit to a plan and stick to it..

    S2h that is really cool. The first time I lost weight it was because of a bitch that pissed me off.. It is true if you put your mind too it you can do anything. If it was for that I dont think I would have met my wife I would have been too scared to talk to her as a fat ass.
    Just wish I found out about gear sooner. But still a hell of alot of work even with gear.
