    140 Pounds of Fat Down !!!

    Well as you can tell in my pic I have dropped allot of fat ... Let me start from the beginning ..
    I have battled with weight loss since after high school ... My metabolism sucks

    I was at my heaviest weight ever (390 Pounds & 52% BF) and was considering Lap Band Surgery. My buddy told me to get my Test levels checked and to start going to the gym in the AM with him. So reluctantly I did ... I started in May and by June I really decided to get serious about it. In the mean time my results came back and my levels were at 185 ... LOW !!! After my Doc explained to me how my test that I did have was being amortized into estrogen he started me on HRT ... Long story short started cycling (even knowing the risks) in late June with Sust / Deca / Cyp) taking AGGRESSIVE Anti E's and getting my blood work done every 60 days ... (Expensive but worth it!).

    My gains have been significant and my BF has gone from 52% to 23% loosing over 140 pounds and gaining roughly 40 pounds in mass ... My bench has gone from 225 lbs to a max of 405 and doing reps with 335. My last leg day I was pressing 900 lbs for 6 reps and maxed at 1100 for 3 reps.

    BUT here I am stuck .... My gains are out growing my losses and I'm not seeing anything on the scale although my waist has now dropped to a 40 in the last two weeks (from a 54 originally a year ago) I am consuming 4000 calories a day eating three meals and consuming 3-4 protein shakes a day (eggs and oatmeal in AM / chicken and or steak in the early afternoon and mostly fish, broccoli and brown rice at night) I think I could consume more calories but I battle with the thought of loosing weight at the same time ... Any thoughts ?

    Welcome and congratulations.

    Repost in our nutrition forum for advice. Ultimately, if you aren't losing weight, you are eating too much.

    Holy shit that's impressive.

    eat the same amount of calories but spread over more meals. Try not to rely so heavily on the protein shakes as meals. Real food is always better.

    Welcome and congrats man! You definitely have to cut back on the eating if you want to keep on losing since 4k calories is a lot of food a day!!!

    This is why I participate in this forum. Stories like this.

    Great job on keeping the fire burning. A very high percentage of people in your position a year ago wouldn't have set foot in a gym period, let alone stay with it.

    Welcome!
