I was always a heavy kid, you know...the one everyone else calls "the big guy". After 17 years of being "the big guy", I decided to change. I started eating a low cal, (low fat - DUMB!) diet, and I lost a lot of weight. Unfortunately by the time I discovered proper nutrition, my muscle was all gone, and I still had a fair amount of fat. I went from a fat 230, to a skinny-fat 160. I kept trying to lose my remaining fat, but I just couldn't do it, no matter what I did.
That's when I discovered BB.Com, and some very nice people set me on the right path. Slowly (Yes...I am a teenager) I began to realize that I would have to put my thoughts about losing fat on the shelf, and put on some muscle, because I had become a kid with no muscle and still a moderate amount of fat.
I have only been lifting weights for 10-11 months, but I am 100% dedicated. I eat a 100% clean diet and I bust my A$$ in the gym every single night to get stronger and bigger.
I have only been actually eating enough calories to put on muslce for about 3-4 months now, but I am happy about what I have accomplished in those months.
All of your support, advice, and motivation is greatly appreciated. I hope that I can be an asset to the board in many ways, and I am looking foward to contributing what limited knowledge that I have. Thanks!
