My comeback journey.

My comeback journey.
So I'm putting up a log of my journey from now until I step on stage and compete next year.
Tonight was the first time in 6 months since I've been in the gym. I have Crohn's disease and got really sick and lost 30+ lbs. tonight was a very humbling and embarrassing experience. At 175lbs and struggling my butt off to farmer's walk with 80lb dumbbells was brutal. It was extremely disheartening and I seriously was questioning if I even wanted to put in the work its going to take.
Time to check my ego and pride I guess. Here's what the next 3-6 will look like for me. Still planning a few things out but these are the basics.
I've hired a coach I will be eating 5,000cals per day. Only changing the protein sources really.
I will be running GH Test and Mast. Not starting those for a month or so. Need to get some bloods first.
My goal is to get to 240 and step on stage around 220-225.

Thank you very much but don't feel bad.
Only the strong survive. I won't quit and I'm hoping the GH really helps with recovery and healing of my insides.
I'll be honest though mentally it's rough as hell. For the next 6 weeks I'm wearing only hoodies to the gym and only lifting at 5:30am or 3pm when no one is there.

Best of luck!!!!! In it for motivation!
If I live every moment believing, then the chaos in my heart will be a beautiful thing.-
I am in love, but not in love with someone or something, I am in love with my life. And for the first time, in a long time, everything is inspiring.-

I just ordered anabeta elite to help with appetite as I'm going to be consuming a ton of food daily.
I've heard good feedback and reviews from a couple guys. Has anyone had a good experience with it for increase in appetite?
In was going to use ghrp 6 but decided I'd try this first.

Well day two in the gym and it sucked just as bad as yesterday lol. Worked back and shoulders and I think I'm weaker now than I was when I was 16. I hope it comes back fast.

I won't give up. Horrible to know you went through something like that. I feel your pain and it's horrible.
I'm currently on prednisone but only for another week or two. I've never taken it longer than a month and never plan too. When I get off of it I get horrible acne and my joints hurt like hell.
What mg were you taking?

Wow sounds like you went through some rough stuff. Glad you're getting it back. Congrats on those solid lifts as well am.
So ambien didn't help you sleep? I haven't had a full 8 hours sleep in probably ten years or so honestly. I haven't tried ambien or anything in that class of drugs really though so maybe it would work for me.
I'll take a xanex every once in a great while, but that doesn't get me a full 8 hours either. I also had a serious bout with anxiety and panic attacks a few years back but hate to put pills into my body so I learned how to manage them and they have gotten significantly better.
Go figure I'll pin myself full of gear but refuse to take something a doctor prescribes me for long periods of time. I haven't had very good luck with doctors though in my past.

Yeah I never saw a doc until I was diagnosed with crohns. I've had some really bad experiences with dr's but a couple good ones as well.
It's funny i have 3 business partners who are doctors and although they are great guys and very good and actually care about their patients they don't have a clue about much else outside of any technical expertise. Lots of times I feel like they are the dumbest smart guys I know lol. Two of them I don't ever think had a real world job before they started practicing.
