    47 years old type 1 Diabetic. In my younger days I competed in powerlifting and strongman now my health is not so good so had to give up the extreme heavy lifting now I am focused more on health, dropping some pounds and living a long healthy life. I have been on a strict diet for many years but do to competing I kept my weight up to accel in my events. Now I need to drop some weight and body fat, in doing so I am also losing muscle mass and strength which I am not happy about but I cant have it all. Would love to join the group for inspiration and tips.

    Hey kids, hope all is well.

    Welcome newbies.

    Have a great weekend ahead.

    I understand you completely, @alstrongman1. While I never actually competed in powerlifting, that was my focus for the first ten years of my lifting "career", always looking to raise the 1RM. It took nearly tearing my arms out of my sockets benching too heavy and narrowly avoiding surgery to adjust my course. I still lift, but top out at sets of five rather than one, along with dedicating half my lifting days towards body recomp and joint health.

    Helped my son move from my basement into his new second floor apartment. Between lugging furniture up multiple sets of stairs, I think that the day counts as a workout, even if it was done in spurts of ten minutes here, drive, ten minutes there, drive back, repeat.

    Haven't checked in here for awhile. Good to see that you all are keeping active here. Off to the gym today for the first time in months. Pray for me! 😊

    Hi all new to this. I’m 47 just trying to shed a few kilos and keep healthy. I drive for a job so keeping active after work is key to my weight.

    I did complete my weightlifting yesterday. Today is a rest day. Tomorrow is cardio.

    I am down nearly 12 lbs since beginning of September....slow fat loss, but I do feel better and by summer I could be down 10-12 more! That is within striking distance of a really healthy bodyfat/scale weight.

    Back & Bis done at the gym yesterday.
    I didn’t feel like dealing with the whole “terror mask” shenanigans today, so I just did some chest and tris at home in the garage gym.
