Back On the Weights

(Hank) #1

15 years ago I was a power lifter. I lifted and I ate, and ate and ate. Blew out my shoulder and blew up ultimately hitting 350 pounds. In 2017 I lost 10 pounds on Keto but cheated all the time. In 2018 no cheating and I hit 280 -275 a couple of weeks ago. I have been walking since the start. My speeds are way up and I am intermixing some light jogging into the mix. I am also doing some anaerobic lifting only on machines to protect my shoulder. My weight hasn’t changed even with a reduced intake but the fat is melting off. This week I wore a pair of slacks in a size I haven’t worn in 12 years.

I would add that I am a very low carb less than 15g per day. I have zero desire to consume and sugar, wheat, corn, potatoes…

It has been a fun year on the health front. I feel like I have taken 15 years off of my age.

Very similar to my story. Except I ballooned up to over 450. I lost 180 lbs my first two years then went back into the gym. I gained around 30 lbs of muscle and lost an additional 60 lbs of fat using CKD and TKD. It all began about 19 years ago . I’ve never regained any fat and am probably 25 lbs away from seeing my abs. It all works well, your next year will really show a difference, as you shed more weight. It just takes time.
