performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week
I'm 55, from central Maryland.
5'10" and fluctuate between 154-157 lbs
I'm currently at 12% body fat. I believe I have achieved 10%, and would one time like to achieve 8%
Married for 35 years have 3 children, 2 girls, one boy. Two years ago I lost my son (26 years old at time, former USMC who toured Iraq) due to PTSD and an overdose while self-medicating.
I have 11 grandchildren.
At my heaviest I was 191. I got into a 116 week weight loss competition with a group of about twelve people. It was evident by around 6 weeks no one but me was serious. By the end of the competition all had dropped out but me. I really liked both the weight loss and the health gains that I had achieved and continued. At my lowest I got down to approx 143 lbs, all through portion control-no exercise.
It was then that I had been noticing people's concern for my health. I looked so guantly that some thought I was wasting due to cancer. I finally, realistically looked in the mirror and saw what they saw, ergo the exercise phase. Needless to saw I didn't pursue this properly either. I never warmed up or cooled down all while achieving unbelievable numbers for a man in his 20s, let alone 50s. I completely tore off my supraspinatus and had it reattached. Needless to saw it will never be right in spite of all the PT and exercise I have done to overcome the malady. No one could know unless I had to do something overhead. My present journey is one of health and physique. I NEVER exercise without warming up or cooling down-NEVER. Every workout is an internal competition with myself. I love to compete.
