    Sometimes I hear some of my friends saying things such "I cant make it there bud, its genetic". I think that if you really want to work out, and you invest a good part of your time on it you'll always see results. My friends think that I was born with some muscle mass or something, well this is a pic of me 2 years ago. If you guys have some pics before you started working out, please post them, Im sure that will motivate a lot of guys to keep it up.

    2 years and you're a tank. Impressive. What is your routine like? Food? Supplements? etc?

    My before pics are too scary to post!

    Well, the worst of them is, at least. When I was almost 310 pounds and 75% fat.

    You'll definitely see a change in my face in the profile pics. Losing almost 100 pounds of fat will do that to you. Although, the other pic was only maybe about 40-50 pounds heavier than I am now.

    Other than the fat size, I don't really see a lot of visible muscular change yet. Still have to get a bunch of fat off before that's really visible. Though, I do see a bit of a nice change in my bicep size...

    It's easier to gain muscle from a lean state. All you need is strict heavy lifting and big calories (eat a lot of food).

    You look great Charlitos and by the sounds of it you have worked hard for it.

    But a lot of people seem to think these things happen over night; well, they don't it takes time, patience and hard work.

    "It's genetic." I've heard the excuse before. Except it isn't solely an excuse--there is some true to it. Some people just have to work harder than others. Some have fast metabolisms and some have slow metabolisms.

    That's not to say you can't alter your body in an advantagous way.

    Habits also play an effect. Studies I have read show that one is more likely to be overweight if they have overweight friends/family. My only friend is 330lbs. and her husband is 500lbs.!!

    My father did not teach me good healthy eating habits. Growing up with a large inactive father was not helpful with my own personal weight battle.

    In High School I lost 30lbs. and weighed around 170lbs. I was in shape for two years before gaining weight againicon_redface.gif--medications for my depression. Now I need to lose a lot of weight before a gay guy will even think about checking me out. Some guys are just plain shallowicon_rolleyes.gif--but others, like myself, want to date "in-shape, heathly guys." Being healthy--not smoking, low alcohol consumption, not getting drunk, not doing drugs, eating healthy, excersising, etc.--is a quality I look for in a guy, or rather, will look for in a guy when I'm physically ready to date. Guys how are healthy generally care about themselves. Of course there are exceptions to every ruleicon_smile.gif

    ...the same as every routine, just no cardio cause Im way too skinny. I eat whatever everytime Im hungry and the only suplement Ive ever tried for 2 months was creatine. But when I started working out I was going to the gym 5 times a week 2 hours per session during 6 months in a row.

    Now that's inspiring ! that's what we wanted to hear so we can know if we're doing it right or enough to get these results ... and not expect miracles without a really hard work.
