    Once you get over wanting to puke, you'll love it!!!
    The moving to a desk job does suck! I've had a real hard time getting some of my lifts back to where I want them, my desk just seems to suck the life out of me...

    Well done, stay with it!

    You're far too kind lol.

    So far so good. I've lost like 3 pounds lol.

    Not exactly but that's what the weekly "for the hell of it" scale test said. The more definitive points are my lats are becoming much more defined and hints of my abs are starting to show lol. Mr. Anthony had mentioned that I would likely get the cool effect of burning fat and gaining muscle mass from the stage I was starting at; He was unsurprisingly correct. Last week I even had the surprise of having my first admirer when I was at the squat rack. The good thing was it was a girl and the better part was she was a good looking blond; Perfect would have been if she had been a hot redhead but I have one of those at home so it doesn't matter anyway lol.

    So I am coming up on two months since I started going to the gym. Doesn't seem like it.

    I have been surprised at both how much strength I still have plus where I am at so far. My upper body strength was the most surprising. Last session I was doing bench 3x5 at 205lbs. I was expecting it to take longer before I broke 200 but I was wrong. I wasn't surprised by how much I lost on squats. It will take me a little longer to get back over 500 lbs lol; Last gym visit had me doing 3x5 at 260lbs which when compared to the 185lbs I started at 7 weeks ago is a huge jump.

    I really did forget how much I enjoy picking up heavy stuff.

    I even have independent verification of my progress. A girl at work asked me what I was doing because I "am getting beefier and loosing weight at the same time" she said.

    I should have done this a long time ago.

    I wish that forty years ago I knew about diet and exercise what I have learned over the past few years on this forum.

    So its been almost 4 months... Doesn't seem like it.

    I was putting on my shorts and belt this morning and had the realization that I no longer have any extra flesh that muffin tops (for lack of a better term) over the top of them. Not sure when that happened but its pretty cool none the less.

    Though I still hysterically weigh 250lbs but I look much much different in the naked in the mirror test lol.

    Are you still adding weight on all the lifts? If so, that's terrifying. Is it time to tweak the program?
