    You guys are killing me. I haven't lost a pound. I haven't gained weight either. I blame beer.

    I am just the opposite
    I began my 40s overweight and out of shape
    In turn 50 next month and I am within 15 lbs of the weight I left the military in 1990 and in excellent shape
    I call it my mid life ...

    I got tired of being fat.

    In DEC of 2016 I started counting calories and spent a few months learning about nutrition.
    After 4 months I was down 45 lbs and feeling great.

    Then I started exercising, swimming at first, then I bought a mountain bike and lost more weight. When the weather got colder, I joined a gym in 2 months ago and hired a trainer once a week, and now I am working on getting the muscle back that I have lost over the years. Today I am about 70 lbs lighter and starting to reshape my body composition. My body fat is around 22%, and I won't stop until I hit 16%-18%

    I read "Bigger Leaner Stronger" by Mike Matthews and I am following that program for weight lifting and nutrition
