Hey 👋 my name is mohssen. I'm just gonna jump right into the sob story. It's very long. I'm sorry.
I was super skinny up until 9 years of age. I don't remember much from back then but I clearly remember getting picked on and being made fun of for being too skinny. When I ate a lot of food I got praised by my family and my uncles and I liked that. But soon it stopped being about the praise and I got addicted to the feeling of full stomach and the taste of food. I have my health documents from back then. In the measurement section shows that I gained 16 kgs in 4 months. That's 35 lbs and it's a lot for a 9 year old! I just kept gaining weight. And after that point I just got made fun of for being fat. at 13 I had a major change in my life style and I became completely immobile and stationary and it exacerbated my problem. I went from fat to obese to morbidly obese at 16 years of age! I tried to diet and lose weight many many times but to no avail. At 16 I said enough is enough and I went to a bodybuilding gym. I trained for 6 months. When I started I was 120 kgs. I lost 7 kgs in 6 months (wieght at the time: 113) but I also gained a lot of muscle. Then I injured my elbow like an idiot. I tried to work around it. Then I injured my ribcage muscles ( how is that even possible? ) but I just found exercises around that too. But then I injured my left shoulder too! When I tried to do any kind of pushing motion my shoulder would make a disturbing sound and uncomfortable popping and grinding feeling which left me unable to do anything. I dropped out of the gym. I lost all my muscles and gained 17 kgs and became morbidly obese again. I was 130 kgs or 288 lbs! Fast forward to 17 years of age, One day I got into a fight and got my ass kicked. Decided to pick up some self defense lessons. There was a jujitsu gym nearby so I signed up and started going. It was horrible for the first 2 weeks but I kinda liked it. My weight steadily dropped without dieting and I lost 13 kgs and became 117 kgs. I was still obese but I had insane stamina. I could out run a lot of skinny guys in a marathon. I got addicted to running. it was insane how much I ran. But I was still super fat and I didn't realise all the high intensity running with that kind of weight was fucking up my legs. After 6 months of jujitsu I became obsessed with cardio and pushing myself to the brink of passing out and death! It was so fun to nearly pass out from all the effort I was putting in. So I picked up boxing too! I did both of them at the same time! I was training 2.5 hours per day. 7 days a week. Then I finished my high-school and took a breather year which turned into 3. That's when things got kinda crazy. I got into cycling and power walking too! I would wake up 8 in the morning go for a ride. Come back at 12 then i would just play games until 4 pm. After that I would go out for a power walk with my cousin and at around 6-8 I would go to the gym for boxing or jujitsu. I was obsessed. Then I decided to diet down and get a six pack!! But every body knows you can't diet without resistant training! So i went back to the gym. Pushed through my injuries or worked around them. I was in pain but I didn't care. I was like a maniac on crack. I was crash dieting and then doing super intense activities for 7+ hours per day with no rest days. It kept going on like that. I lost a lot of weight and gained a lot of muscles. Because of all the running while I was that big my fucking feet had six packs. As I got leaner muscles poped out from everywhere in my body. I reached 200 lbs! I had some digestion problems. I went to a doctor he wrote me for a heart exam. I was having minor heart problems. All that working out was catching up to me. But with further examination I just got some pills and doctors told me I can go back to the gym. So I went back. After a while my knees started hurting. Specially my left knee. It got loose and was acting weird And my pelvis started making weird sounds too. I just didn't feel right. I felt like my legs were bent but I thought I was crazy. I went to doctors and got examined and they told me I had completely destroyed my knees and my legs were bent from too much long term tension and repeated shock and trauma And they said I have to stop any and all kinds of exercise immediately and become lighter. I got bummed out. I kept myself out of the gym for 8 months and gained 10 kgs of fat and lost some muscles. I can't lose wieght when I am not working out because I can't control my appetite and I seek confort in food. I went to a boxing gym again I said to myself I don't care If my legs fall off or I have to crawl for the rest of my life! I need this thing to be a normal human and without it I am just a fat loser. My legs hurt a lot but i pushed through and lost some wieght Until corona came. I stopped going to the gym. I got into a university after 3 years of doing nothing. But when I stopped going to gym that's when I found out how truly fucked my knees had gotten. right now I have trouble walking for even a minute. As soon as I get up my knees burn and I get sharp pain in my bones. 2 years of corona and staying at home made me gain 30 kgs! And I became 126.5 kgs. But the good thing is After 7 years my shoulder is kinda alright right now so I've started lifting again. I am morbidly obese. I have 0 muscles. I have a lot of pain but I am going to continue. I decided to sign up here for motivation and accountability. Specially accountability.
I need accountability.
The picture is me right now. I took it yesterday coming back from a bookstore. I would love to hear your opinions and whatever you've got to say. 20211202_180353.jpg

Welcome to the UG.

paragraphs bro
I don't know how to. English is like my 4th language 😅 I am not that well versed in English grammar. I structured it as I would in my academic language. How can I edit this thing?

No need to edit.

Go to the link below, start a daily log. What you ate, how much, what you did to train that day. Every day make an entry.

What are you doing for nutrition and training?

I received your request for editing help. I'll take care of it, I just can't right this moment. I'll try to get to it tonight though.

And welcome to the Underground.

What are you doing for nutrition and training?

For nutrition I try to get 1.6 grams of protein per kgs of my body wieght and try to keep my calorie intake less than 2500.

For training I just do the basics. I do a push pull split.

For push days I do:
3 sets of Close grip Bench press with tucked in elbows for minimum activation of my shoulders and more activation of my triceps.

Then I do 1 set of inclined Bench press at 40 degrees for activation of my upper chest and front deltoids. Then I go to 30 degrees and do 1 set there to take out the shoulders and put more focus on the upper chest then I go back to 45 degrees to finish it off. It's 3 sets of inclined Bench total.

Then I do 3 sets of chest flys if I feel like it.

Then I do 3 sets of standing shoulder press for my shoulders and it kinda hits my core too.

After that I do 3 sets of lateral raises for my side delts.

Then I do 3 sets of isolation triceps exercise behind the head for the long head muscle which I haven't hit in the close grip Bench press.




For pull days:
First i start with A few reps of sumo deadlift.

Then I do 3 sets of bent over pull with wide elbows for maximum activation of the rear delts and upper back.

I do band extentions for my shoulder blades after each set of bent over pull.

3 sets of dumbell rows for my lats.

Then l do 3 sets of some variation of bicep workouts.

I do 3 sets of alternating hand position between supinated and pronated dumbell curls to hit my fore arms and biceps at the same time.

Then if I had any energy left I would do crunches.


I don't do legs because I can't. I've wrote about it extensively at the post above.

Hey 👋 my name is mohssen. I'm just gonna jump right into the sob story. It's very long. I'm sorry.

TLDR:
Skinny as a child, obese as a teen. Love of cardio, cycling, Jiu Jitsu, and weightlifting. Lots of injuries. Undulating weight up and down over the years.

Childhood Body Image:

I was super skinny up until 9 years of age. I don't remember much from back then but I clearly remember getting picked on and being made fun of for being too skinny. When I ate a lot of food I got praised by my family and my uncles and I liked that. But soon it stopped being about the praise and I got addicted to the feeling of full stomach and the taste of food. I have my health documents from back then. In the measurement section shows that I gained 16 kgs in 4 months. That's 35 lbs and it's a lot for a 9 year old!

I just kept gaining weight. And after that point I just got made fun of for being fat. at 13 I had a major change in my life style and I became completely immobile and stationary and it exacerbated my problem. I went from fat to obese to morbidly obese at 16 years of age! I tried to diet and lose weight many many times but to no avail. At 16 I said enough is enough and I went to a bodybuilding gym.

I lost all my muscles and gained 17 kgs and became morbidly obese again. I was 130 kgs or 288 lbs!

Teen Years and Renewed Exercise:
Fast forward to 17 years of age, One day I got into a fight and got my ass kicked. Decided to pick up some self defense lessons. There was a jujitsu gym nearby so I signed up and started going. It was horrible for the first 2 weeks but I kinda liked it. My weight steadily dropped without dieting and I lost 13 kgs and became 117 kgs. I was still obese but I had insane stamina.

I lost a lot of weight and gained a lot of muscles. Because of all the running while I was that big my fucking feet had six packs. As I got leaner muscles poped out from everywhere in my body. I reached 200 lbs!

Injuries Catch Up:
I had some digestion problems. I went to a doctor he wrote me for a heart exam. I was having minor heart problems. All that working out was catching up to me. But with further examination I just got some pills and doctors told me I can go back to the gym. So I went back. After a while my knees started hurting. Specially my left knee. It got loose and was acting weird And my pelvis started making weird sounds too. I just didn't feel right. I felt like my legs were bent but I thought I was crazy.

I went to a boxing gym again I said to myself I don't care If my legs fall off or I have to crawl for the rest of my life! I need this thing to be a normal human and without it I am just a fat loser. My legs hurt a lot but i pushed through and lost some weight.

Now:
Until corona came. I stopped going to the gym. I got into a university after 3 years of doing nothing. But when I stopped going to gym that's when I found out how truly fucked my knees had gotten. right now I have trouble walking for even a minute. As soon as I get up my knees burn and I get sharp pain in my bones. 2 years of corona and staying at home made me gain 30 kgs! And I became 126.5 kgs. But the good thing is After 7 years my shoulder is kinda alright right now so I've started lifting again. I am morbidly obese. I have 0 muscles. I have a lot of pain but I am going to continue.

Why UGBB?
