In all fairness, the end result is the same. I believe everyone agrees that following the law would be the best way to honor myself and my family. It just so happens that it also coincides with honoring God.
FYI, that tiny inkling of guilt as you say has appeared many a times...
I appreciate your last few sentences.
This is will be a major sacrifice for me. Lifting is the only hobby I enjoy. I've been doing it most of my life. Only time I made any progress was with the test.
Its a shame that its so misunderstood. Even finding a knowlegable doctor is difficult.
I believe the scripture tyga quoted applies only if the laws coincide with God's laws. Otherwise, God's laws would supercede.
Regarding the clean vessel logic. I do believe God made us all a certain way. I was not blessed with the genetic makeup or test levels of a bodybuilder. For all I know...

And solid numbers man! Making things look easy over there. I'm starting to believe that you are from another planet with a stronger gravitational pull.
I know exactly what you're going through. Be patient and above all else, don't abandon him (no matter how difficult it gets). As much as it seems that this is not the case, much of it is not really in their control. That's when prayers come in...
Edit: sorry quoted the wrong post. Meant for shel.
Yeah agree with mixed up. 5'9 and 29 in waist while bulking is nothing to worry about.
while I don't need as many cals as you, my day is pretty hectic, so I have to get my food in when I can. So if I have to get a huge meal in, my stomach is distended for a couple of hours! It don't look...
I haven't used Osta personally but from what I've read the only benefit that you may get would be better joint health. The test would over power any muscle building or muscle sparing effects from osta.
