    Hey all! Maf here, former lurker, now registered!

    Hey there

    Just thought I'd make a short introduction of myself, allthough knowing myself it'll probably end up being quite long!

    I used to work out quite a bit, mostly in the gym or doing Kyokushin but injuries, work, injuries, and life in general got in the way. So i ended up a 33 year old fat slob! Did I mention injuries?

    I've been feeling weak, exhausted and unintrested in lifes pleasures for quite some time, and have been trying to get my Testosterone checked for 5 years, but my Docs refuse, do some other tests and say nothing is wrong.
    Last spring i got utterly fed up, went to my doc and told her what friggin tests to make in an angry manner, and lo and behold: Testosterone came back at 6 nmol/L, normal range being 8-30. I FINALLY got to see an endo, who just dismissed me because I'm under 40 yrs old, and she won't treat people under the age of 40...?!

    I proceeded to tell her that it would take me about 10 minutes to get a hold of some Nebido (same stuff, other brand tho) and treat myself, and at about 1/5'th the cost at that!
    She asked me how I was supposed to know what doses to use, to wich I relpyed that the reccomended dose is 1000mg every 10-12 weeks, but that I'm not comfortable with injecting 5ml's of oil at once and would be doing 400mg every five weeks instead, and that this might even keep my bloodlevels more stable, even though Nebido has a really long ester.

    She was horrified that I would even consider doing such huge ammounts, this was doping in its worst form! So I asked what the difference was between if I did it myself, and at a dose that even works out a tad LOWER per 12 weeks than reccomended, or if she did it. To which she responded "Well... what do you mean by a really long ester? It sits in a depo deep inside your muscle, slowly being released into your body. Injecting every five weeks is way way way too often, you'll have many times your natural test!!"
    I said "It's the ester that controls the slow release" she interrupted me and said: "No, its the oil"

    I concluded that She was an idiot, and left. Her final words being "I hope you get only water in the vials!"
    Needless to say, I've lost all trust in the Dr's at my disposal, when it comes to hormonal matters.


    I did what I said I would do, and got some quality of life back! I can't tell you how good it feels to wake up after a good nights sleep an no longer be tired. To wake up with a smile on my face, eager to take on life's little challenges, and no longer feel that making some coffee in the morning is a nigh on impossible obstacle to overcome.
    My girl is quite happy with the change as well.

    No longer feeling like crap I decided to get myself back on track again, set up a goal: have a 6-pack within 2 years, something I've never before achieved, always being "skinny-fat" Endo/Ecto combo.
    And somewhere along the way I managed to motivate my GF, who have always been a big girl. Starting at 230lbs, she is now down to 196 and still dropping! Wich is awesome =)

    I'm about halfway to my goal myself (you can just barely glimpse my 3-pack! ) Having dropped 77lbs so far.
    I started out at 256lbs, and am currently sitting at:

    6 ft tall
    179 lbs

    I got this far on my own, but I'll probably need a bit of help to push me that last little bit to a visible 6-pack, or considering I've got a bit of loose skin now, atleast a 4-pack. Hence why I finally decided to register, after months of lurking

    Once Abs are showing I plan on start rebuilding my physique, and getting my shoulder impingement sorted a.s.a.p, I got it due to *bad* posture and hunched over shoulders and need to strengthen my posterior delts, as well as rotator's quite a bit!

    Anyways, this is me, and I hope to spend a long time here getting to learn you guys and gals!

    Oh, and if I figure out how to to it, I might be able to post some before/after pics.. If I can find any before that is, I was a bit camera-shy :P

    Cheers!
