No, I am not Monstar (sorry Mike), but I figured that since the competition was over, I needed to get out of the IM Comp forum and re-introduce my diary in this forum. I am planning to continue training with HIT and try to get my food intake under control.
I need you folks more than ever because I have literally found myself gaining weight (occurred right after I hurt my shoulder) and I am not happy with me and with my current state.
Ya'll are my inspiration and I am ready to continue with this. I do need all the help I can get and you folks have always come thru for me...
You're doing fine. We have ALL pretty much had to deal with injuries. The fact that you are still here speaks for itself. Regroup, refocus. You can do this... as for me, I'm still stuck at 240, compliments of a stress induced binge eating (LOL)... coupled with no gym (BAH!). Needless to say, I too am regrouping, and refocusing.
"Dude... thats a lot-a weight... I mean yer like... what... 50??" Said to me by a 17 year old when I was doing deadlifts.

Steve: That's my wake up call. I really don't need help, otherwise I'd be paying for it right? This is all on me. I guess I let the injury get to me, and I guess I am frustrated about me not progressing as quickly as I used to. That, is part of aging...No, I don't mean it in a funny way. I was told back in the day to be careful and lose the weight early because if I didn't, it would get a lot tougher to do as I got older. It got tougher.....thanks Steve. I needed some tough love
Arch: I am good thanks, just regrouping as, Dan said...
Dan: Thanks, I appreciate you telling me that. I did panic a little bit and I am somewhat panicking....My birthday is coming up and I am going to be an unhealthy 36....That's what scares me...
