Well boys (and now) girls, I thought it was just about high time I gave everyone an idea of just what I am up against in this fitness struggle I find myself in. I have always been a big kid, both in weight and structure. At eleven years old I hit the 200 pound landmark ( I was also about the same height I am now) and in the past 7 years my weight has hit 260. As of yesterday, I am now 254. This is the byproduct of lifting weights and decreased food consumption. Never really was good with cardio, don't know if it is a lack of effort or commitment...or my heart current state (compliments of Kawasaki disease). Bottom point is, after the first couple minutes my heart feels as if it is being curb stomped. So it has been on the back burner for the past decade,I realize it is a rather big part of the problem. Soon we will be starting up with some cardio and easing ourselves into it. That is when I am going to start expecting some bigger results, till then, I have the mass on my body to form muscle. May as well have something to look at when it is all over, right? Anyways I have plenty of tell-tale signs of change already. Flab is now gone from my lower legs, my entire arm is rather solid except for around my arm pits. My stretch marks are shrinking and becoming far paler. I feel no fatigue when lifting weights, even when increasing the weight I am lifting. Instead I feel a rush of adrenaline that lasts until failure. Feels natural. My gym buds are rather impressed with how quickly I progressing in strength. Anyways, off to class and then the gym, thanks again to all my subscribers. I am now past the 50 landmark and am hoping to have 100 followers very soon. Have a great night everyone.
