As a bonus to my plan, I finally got my girlfriend at least semi-on-board with what I'm doing. She likes me the way I am, and is afraid I'm going to get too big or too muscular/veiny. I convinced her it won't happen like that, but I am getting stronger that's for sure. I'll keep some of a beer belly to keep her happy.
So some numbers to start from. I'm pretty pissed at most of them, seeing where I was prior to injury. It's amazing how much can be lost, but even more amazing how I will get it back, and then some more.
****Current / Goal
Weight - 276 / 250
BF% - 31% / <20%
Waist - 46.5" / <40"
Arms - 16.5" / 20"
Chest - 49" / 55"
Those are just first level goals. I will eventually go lower in weight via less BF, and increase chest size as well as other body parts in proportion. But I figure this is close to pre-injury, so that's my goal to hit before Tough Mudder in May.
Going to bed soon, and then waking to a whole new way to live.
