Thanks for all the compliments guys. It's awesome to got props from people who are as into bobybuilding as I am. We are always the harshest critics, what most people see as 'fit', we see as 'lagging delts' hahaha

First of all, great transformation!
Secondly, what was your main inspiration to lose weight? I'm just curious - I like to hear what drives some.
Reps for sure.

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to BBR again.

You're a gentleman and a scholar Cub, we seem to have cause to rep each other quite a bit huh?
Soseg ... I lost 65kg and it took about 14months. That equates to approximately a kilo a week for over a year. It's great to lose weight that fast, but now I have quite a bit of loose skin around my midsection.
Iron Lungz .. Honestly man? I was miserable my whole life, I'd lie to myself and say that I "carried it well", but how "well" can you carry 141kg at my height! I began having heart problems and getting sick all the time. I went to the family doctor and he told me straight out, with no padding, if I didn't lose weight I'd be dead by the time I'm 40. To me, that wasn't f**king acceptable. That was when I decided it was time to lose weight.
Now that I've lost it, I still have some health issues as a result. I have fatty liver disease (mild, but it's there), low iron and low testosterone. I was on Sustanon 250 but the dose was so low that they were willing to prescribe that it wasn't really doing anything. I decided to stop the injections because the frequent blood tests prevented me from using any supplements given that any 'higher than average' test readings would like very suspicious.
Thanks again for all the compliments, it's awesome getting recognition by people such as yourselves.

That's unreal. I know a few guys at the gym who have dropped a considerable amount of weight and they also have loose skin around their midsection. What ways, apart from surgery, are there to try and tighten it up a bit? What about Bio-Oil or Vitamin-E cream? Both are meant to be good for stretch marks too. There's probably threads on the issue. I'll have to have a look.

give it time first i think with the lose skin it will even out with time but as to how much? time will tell
the best thing is your comfortable in a shirt etc so who gives how you look at the beach thats only a bonus
i lost 20kg when i was 14 coz i was a bit chubby so ive been there... but ive never managed to get ripped or abs etc...it sticks around the chest etc but being 183cm tall.... i could drop into the low 70s and look stick thin so **** it... im bulking up... then ill ask the pro's how to cut down to 8% or less and try maintain as much muscle
12-30-2008 08:16 AM
Yeah, I've come to the realisation that with this skin I will never be ultra ripped, at least not around the midsection. My only option is to stack on massive amounts of lean mass and hope it fills out.
Cub .. I've used lots of creams etc. but nothing seems to work. My problem is that I have so much loose skin that I doubt it will never totally elasitcise back in. Realistically if I wanted to look 'normal' I'd need surgery. $13000 for a tummy tuck though is a lot of supplements!
12-30-2008 08:24 AM
Haha! You have no choice then. We need to lean-bulk you up!

That is f***ing AMAZING
GREAT work and Im sure you busted ya ass to get there man!!

Awesome work! I am curious about how your face looks because you look much older than 25 in the second set of "before" pics. It is amazing how much younger people look when they drop wt.
You are so lean yet muscular, more like a person that was skinny before and then bulked up. Usually people feel satisfied when they drop the wt and look good in comparison. You definitely were not satisfied to simply lose wt, you got RIPPED!

Great transformation buddy. You look like a completely different person!
