    She's doing great man. She's down a little over 20lbs already too. She's had to do a little more suffering than I have with no carbs for a while but she just got some back last week. Monte's been guiding us really well!

    She actually wanted less carbs then we added originally lol.

    Results Trump comfort if they're good enough.

    Got my oil changed today, did a regular whole blood. Already feel way better. Once I rehydrate I'll be running on all cylinders again. Was staying to feel like crap with a lingering headache and blood pressure started going up a little to 130/70. Should drop back down to 124/65ish now. Hemoglobin was at 16.8 so I was getting up there

    Had a solid back and shoulders session today. Beat the logbook on pretty much everything except the shoulder stuff, because I'm still rehabbing the one. Was able to do overhead presses today without pain, so I'm super happy about that. Not only was I able to do them, but I was able to use more than 10lbs per side too lol. Felt great from donating today too.

    Little update on things.

    Diet was increased some this week, I get carbs with breakfast again and increased fats through the day. Since the recomping is going so well.

    GH for me was switched to Supertropins so the wife can continue using the Opti. Not sure if they're any good or not but I guess we'll see. Sides had already diminished with the split dosing and the numbness feels about the same. I'm planning on pulling IGF scores in 4 weeks just to see what they turn out. I haven't taken a true baseline for probably 8 years, but back then they were in the 160's so I doubt they're higher now. Lot of debate on how much they're affected by diet, stress, etc so who knows.

    Well had to start nolva again. Gyno started flaring up bad again today. So there goes the IGF testing unless I can stay off of it for at least 4 weeks. So that sucks. Guess I'll just have to go off the effects. Seems like it's going exactly the same as before I switched so there's that. Hopefully I can get it under control and stay off the nolva for a while

    Fuck Igf1 test, gyno is no joke. At least your priorities are in order. I wish they could do a small laser ablation with a thread so, we wouldn’t have to worry about gyno. Surgery is hella expensivola! Smart GC

    Here's today's half assed check in. I don't have anyone to take pics today so I tried doing the whole phone camera delay thing today and I couldn't get any decent pics in the same lighting as normal. So just did a mirror selfie instead. The progress is pretty obvious this week, I've been waking up leaner every day it seems like. Weight went up a tad, but so has my shirt size and my waist size dropped dramatically this week.

    Weight: 187.4

    Thanks guys! It's finally starting to fall off now. I was starting to wonder if my metabolism would ever decide to start burning again like it used to lol. Guess we've finally hit that time!
