Goodbye Skinny Fat Man
Hey there -
After years of simply being neither unhappy nor content with my body, I simply let things stay the way they were convinced that I couldn't build muscle. After reading Tim's book and getting over some insecurities, I've decided to push myself to a new physical, mental and spiritual peak.
I'm hoping to learn a lot from all of you, and I can't wait to share in your successes and trials and that you'll be here for me when I face them myself! So far, I'm three weeks into SCD and I've lost weight and started to bulk up - I can't wait to see how much further I can go with your support : )
The Best Answer
Your question title summarizes why I started this adventure - the Mr. Bean in a bathing suit look (long, limpy limbs, intersected with a built-in hip-sack, belly roll) was NOT the direction I wanted to head any longer. Still trying to find the balance between gaining muscle and losing fat. Not an easy balancing act and lots of trial and error, but I am slowly heading in the right direction. I, personally, have not found any magic, one-month mass-gaining technique, or fat-shedding strategy, but I am finding success with the basic premise of Tim's book (adjusted with advice from the knowledgeable folks here).
Best of luck in your quest, Uncletoucan!
