At 57, I can't regain what I had at 54, mirrors won't lie to me.

are you working with a trainer?? Have him help you set up your workouts and figure out your beginning macro's. if not take the time to figure out your calorie and macros, it helps support building the new you. Your body needs the correct fuel to function at its best. I am much older than 57 and not worried about what was, I am working on building a better me. I don't let age limit what you think you can do. Siegels, it is a long journey to rebuild a better you. trust in the process. it will not happen in a day. I was totally no muscle tone at all. it took me weeks to safely build up some muscle tone and slowing increase my work outs and level of work out.

Thanks for insight and advice. I've never had a trainer. Would indeed be good to get some professional guidance on a plan for safe growth. Thanks too for the perspective. Helps to hear that you've had similar experience. Steve
