You guys are killing me. I haven't lost a pound. I haven't gained weight either. I blame beer.
Calories in vs calories out
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 ...
Very nice! What do you attribute it to?

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
I have a new trainer and the squat/deadlift routine is my new life. Last weekend I had an IDPA shoot and i could barely move.... not that it kept me from shooting though! The Mrs. has also found some new stuff on squats and deadlifts.
All I know is that I've spend the last 6 months in the gym bumping my machine weights every week.. first day doing legit free-weight squats and I was checking to see if I needed a doctor's note to rent a walker.
I am 6'6" tall.
Having long legs puts tall people at a mechanical disadvantage to getting low on squats. It have progressed to box squats with a fair amount of weight on the bar but I have also started doing Bulgarian Split Squats , they look easy, but are hard AF
I'll have to look that up. 6'6" is pretty damn tall! I'm built more like a rubic cube (well, ok a bouy right now...) so I can see where I have to work a little less to get to my full "height" lol
495 for reps on my dead lift. We moving on up
