Greetings. My name is John and I have cycled on and off a regular training routine for over 12 years. I am about to be 48 and feel like this is my last shot at getting it right and sticking to it. I picked up the weights again at the first of May and have been consistent for the past 4 weeks. I am finally feeling good about myself again! I have a long way to go but every day is progress. I'm 6'6" tall and weight 235. I don't want to be lean and skinny but also don't want that middle aged gut that most guys my age have. I'm basically cutting out the sugary snacks, minimizing the bread, and trying to maximize protein for my 5 daily meals. I have a family with 2 college aged kids and one teen that loves to eat out. I just don't want to feel like my opportunity to physically peak is over when I hit 50 in a couple of years. My goal is to be in the best shape of my life at 50.
I've been lurking in the forums and you guys are really supportive and have a lot of good advice on nutrition and training. The JEFIT app is awesome for logging and tracking and think the idea of this site is great!
