Gym ,no honest I am not lying , me at the Gym .Life,s strange
« on: December 15, 2015, 06:07:45 PM »
So today was my first session in the group run by my psychotherapist at the hospital .
To say the least I had doubts. For one thing would my bones just snap under stress?  Would I ? How much indignity could I tolerate ? The start was not good . The other guy there when I arrived was handsome & hot , but fortunately the room soon filled with a good mixture off extreme thinness & extreme fatness so I at least blended in.

I was surprised by how much my body remembered , the various exercise,s that where part off my week up to age 37 or thereabouts just restarted but with be you weights .

I enjoyed it even if my legs are now hurting , hurting quite a bit in fact.
The group is for two hours twice a week , I hope to at least make it once a week.
I have surprised myself and do not feel sad as I thought I might . Sadness from comparing the past gym me with the 2015 me.

As usual the whole thing is being researched and so there has been lots how do you feel about ....questionnaires , and. Today was my baseline day to be compared to the counts in the tenth week. Plus I had weight etc, and body measurements taken again taken in week ten.

We will see.

I will definitely be following how you're doing.  If your bones don't snap, that would be great. Don't spend time comparing your younger self with now.  I do that often, thinking about how nice it would be to just have a normal body and be able to walk without constant pain.

Good luck, Michael.  Please keep us up to date on how it's going.

Good for you !  I haven't been to a gym to work out in years.
I do take long walks with my dogs and every so often get a hair up my ass
and use my dumbbells. As for my body , it doesn't remember anything
at all about being 37....   LOL
Keep us posted ,  Wade

Please post pics of yourself in your posing strap once you are buff again. Good for you, it does a body good to get moving again.

Pictures or it didn't happen.  :) 
sorry, couldn't resist.

I've been so vacant emotionally of late, yet I so care about you and many others here.  Take care of yourself.  OH, and snap a pic of the hottie. 
Being honest is not wronging others, continuing the dishonesty is.

Dear Theyer, wWelcome back to the  magical realm of the *sprinklings of fairy dust* Muscle Marys.

About 5 weeks ago I finally got back to the gym after a 1.0 year break.

I am hoping to bulk up a bit but so far have lost about 2 kg/ 5lbs, but the waistline is looking fabulous and there's even a hint of abs.
Abs Fab! break out the Bolli, well not just yet, but soon.

I am pushing/ pulling a lot more weight than 5 weeks ago so I know the lean body weight must be improving.

My  right shoulder is strong again after rotator cuff injury a few years ago, it's massively improved my softball hitting and throwing.

My cd4s have slimmed down too,  back down to 100. I don't need my cd4s to have a six-pack.

VL is still undetectable so I'm not worried, just frustrated.

Congrats, Theyer!

This might be the post that gets me motivated to go back to the gym. I have a Planet Fitness that I was going to for a couple years, but the last 8 months I've been having pain management issues and trying to mix a fentanyl patch with exercise doesn't work. I get light headed and nauseated. But I am still paying the monthly $10 for the membership, hoping I'd get back to it. I know that I felt better when I went!

Thanks for the motivation! Let us know how you are doing with it.

I distrust morning people. I suspect they setup the rules of life while the rest of us slept.

I'm glad you've started back!  Wish I could get up the 'mojo' to do it.  I don't know when or how I could fit it in.

When you're an ENT patient, your life is 'no longer your own'.

Hope this helps you feel better and stronger!

HUGS, Alan
