Just a quick bit about me. I am currently 225 lbs, 5’9. I measure my body fat with calipers in a simple mid chest, low stomach, and quad measurement. I don’t find it to be accurate, I think it shows me low, buts it’s increasingly consistent. I can get the same exact reading nearly day after day, so that’s what I use. Calipers show me at 16% body fat, I think I’m in the upper teen range. I am on prescribed trt 140mg per week, and just started to try out low does nandrolone at 70 mg per week. I am on week 3 of that.

Previous PED use was cardarine, s23 (no good and felt like garbage, two weeks in fact and I stopped) and astatine. I also stopped it, it felt like it was doing zero. And I felt that was the less known and possibly safe alternative to other well known and established options. So I stopped, felt it was the smart thing to do. I thought that before starting, even more so while in it. My point is, pretty much no real PED use.

I generally follow full body workouts due to fitting it into my life style. I do 3-4 lifts a week. My best maxes so far is a 505 squat, 565 deadlift, and I’ve hit 365 bench with ease, and can regularly hit 315 for 10 if rested. Have not tested a RM on it for a while. For now I want to try to lean bulk a little more, but my 32 inch pants are starting to scream at me a little. So I’m getting fluffy and want to lean down soon. Looking forward to the log just for my own personal reflection if nothing else!

Current photos of me. This is totally unflexed and unpumped, literally just the middle of day photo. Can you tell I don’t hit arms hardly ever directly? Haha. My goals are to bring up hanstrings #1, chest #2, and triceps #3. I’d like to hit bicepes but I have ulnar nerve on my right side that likes to inflame up some when worked too much, I’m trying to sort through it.

Fuck you eat a lot of fat. What does your diet usually consist of?

I gravitate forward low carb high fat. Right now, high calories, so kinda high everything.

My typical fat sources are also my protein sources. eggs, 80/20 ground beef, steak, fish, vegetables cooked in butter, cook a lot with olive oil or avacado oil.

I don’t like super high carb. I get tired on and off all day, and feel like trash. For me now, that’s more than 300 grams of carbs a day consistently. One day at 400-500 and I’m fine. It’s like I absorb all the glucose my muscles can handle, and once I can no longer keep it depleted somewhat, I start crashing and feeling bad. I can eat fat all day and do great. That gallbladder down there is just a hummin along haha.

Just to throw this out there, here are pics of me at my fattest (and heaviest, 245) and down to my leanest a year after the first pic 160-165 lbs. I quickly realized how much muscle I didn’t have, and like most of us, I was ok with my shirt off but shirt on I felt tiny. Nonetheless, I was feeling 10x better and way healthier. The Pic at my leanest was 6 years ago now (and I was pumped in that pic and flexing obviously) and yes I did previously have lifting experience, with bad programming, but still had lifted before for a while before quoting and getting married: that’s when I got to my heaviest. I say that because I felt I built decently being that I was hardcore keto, and still not yet really dialed in on my lifts and just doing random stuff. Big lifts, but randomly.

how satisfying is it that the current unflexed unpumped you is bigger than flexed pumped you from then.

amazing progress
Thanks, it means a lot. Sometimes you look and start seeing the old fat you in your pic as you gain weight and can’t help but wonder if you’re getting fat. But I mean, I still squeeze into the same pants I wore then, they were just loose then and tight now haha. But that’s just me being a woman. Most of the time I’m dang proud and know dang good and well of course I gained some fat, but along with it was a lot of growth, especially in my back and legs. And TONS of strength gain. But still, it’s nice to be reassured by others in the game and further along.
