Hey everyone, My name is Chad

I'm a 26 year old Marine Engineer living in central New England.

I have struggled with being overweight since the age of 8, and have been up and down from Obese to just overweight my whole life, I was so young the last time that I was thin that I don't even remember what it feels like.

On July 15 2013 my brother in law who is a bodybuilder randomly called me and asked if I would like to go to the gym with him, I agreed.

Since that day I have been borderline obsessed with bodybuilding, I haven't skipped a day at the gym yet, and I do not plan to.

My brother in law has taught me clean eating, nutrition, and macromanipulation to aid me in my journey and it has worked well.

Though I will never be satisfied with my fitness level, I have decided on a goal weight of 170 lbs, and a deadline of 6 months to accomplish it. Once 6 months have passed I will be posting progress photos for the world to see. - COMPLETE 12/29/2013

01/31/2014 - New goal of 180 lbs by March 17, 2014 (lean muscle mass gains) 3-17-14 Made it to 179 lbs.

3-17-14 - New goal of 165 lbs. while retaining any muscle gains from my bulk.

6-20-14 - Back in bulking status, plan on bulking for another 12 weeks, no weight goal.

8-24-14 - Bulk has been cut short by 1 week, but I hit 182 lbs. Starting a 6 week transformation challenge today, will post results after my final weigh-in. Most Likely I will stay the course until I hit my original goals.

I am all about passing the knowlege that I have gained onto others, so if you have any questions about my lifestyle please don't hesitate to ask!

Nutrient Content
The Pie chart at the bottom of the screen is correct. The only thing about it is that it takes all carbohydrates into consideration (simple, complex, and fiber) as one number (total carbs) and doesn't count net carbs. if you want to count net carbs as your carb% for the day rather than total carbs, you will have to do that yourself unfortunately...

Pop-ups may not even come from fat secret. It is possible that you may have some sort of ad software installed on your computer. (sometimes this type of software is attached to other programs that you download).

Throwback Thursday!

Summer of 2010 before I gained all of the weight (long before I turned to bodybuilding as well, obviously) Excuse the hair, I was off for the summer from the Academy and rebelling.
