    Thanks, Brent. Since I've not done this before, it's going to be a discovery process for me. - Joey

    I would also like to add that although I have never done a show, nor will I ever... but I would still like to help out. If you want to know about fat loss products, ask me. Anything else.... ask someone else.

    Thanks to all of you who have welcomed & encouraged me. I'm going to take you guys up on nutrition ideas for the cutting phase. Right now carb cycling seems to have the most supporters - but the implementations vary widely.

    As for what I was like when I started - at 44 I was fat, no muscle, and in cardiac intensive care. Two years of yo-yo dieting left me worse off than before - about 238# of blubber.

    This is fun ride - and I switched from being a Systems Consultant to Personal Training to help other people get it together - and have never regretted it.

    Thanks again for the warm welcome. Progress pics to follow.

    Thanks again for the many welcomes & encouragement. I'll take my cutting questions (and I do have a few) over to the nutrition forum.

    As to where I started - at 44, Cardiac Intensive Care. Got just scared enough to do something about it. But at 46, NO muscle, 238# of blubber because of yoyo dieting, etc. Then I got religion in the form of GOOD workouts and some sound nutritional advice. It's been a good road since then.

    The nutritional approach seems to be working well. Cardio starts this week. Daily intake is approximately 3100 calories.
