Looking damn good for your age. You have plenty of time to get super shredded. I am excited to see your progress.

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.

WOW that's the kinda stuff people need to see. All those lazy asses who complain they don't have the time or energy.
Way to go! Looking forward to your contest prep and results.

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.
