What a Difference A Year Makes
About 1 year ago, at 48 yrs old, I was 270 pounds, just had a mild stroke, and lost my business due to my health. After a lot of self reflection, and a plea from my kids, on Nov 1st, 2011, I decided enough was enough. In the next 7 months I lost over 100 lbs, and last April I started lifting. I cannot convey how much weight lifting and getting into shape has changed my life for the better.
Here are some before (notice the treadmill has become a Clothes Hanger)and a couple after pics.
Anyway, thanks for allowing me to pat myself on the back !!
Best Gym Lifts...Dosen't matter....they don't count!
Best Meet Lifts:
Squat = 330
Bench = 215
Dead = 375
Total = 904
The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
