Get your T-levels checked.
I started 2018 at 283 lbs. I’m currently at 170-175lb. I began T-therapy in July of 2019. It’s amazing how much better I feel with my T-levels at 500-600 instead of 183 like they were initially. I’m also a one stripe brown belt in BJJ since I saw someone earlier talking about Muay Thai and BJJ. I’m the same size I was when I wrestled in high school. I turn 50 in one month.

Yeah I need to see about this. I'm still in shape I just want to get ahead of the Curve.. and I just want to feel good I used to have Boundless Energy.
I would start with Test. Get it checked. My guess you are low. Test is amazing. Also get your estrogen checked as well.

Low T nation here in Atlanta is where I go now. They even shipped everything to my door. Very simple and easy. I get check ups every 3 months. My range is around 750-850. Makes me feel great.

Better to see an endocrinologist. My GP said my levels were fine. My endocrinologist said I was low. They saw the same numbers.
My GP says mine are all good. I don't know the numbers, but he said they are normal. I am tired all the time.

I have actually found it much cheaper to eat healthier. Before, I was stupid and cook 1 pound of fatty hamburger for 2 people. Now I do half a pound of the lean stuff which does cost more but the same if I portion it!

“ knock on wood”. I have never gotten the flu in my life. 35 years strong. Never given a flu shot either. My parents didn’t allow us to as kids. Flu shot = you get the flu.

Yeah I did not get the shot, never have actually. my reasoning was that I've never had the flu.

Yea I hear it sucks, my wife gets it every year but she has to get the flu shot since she is a teacher.

Interesting.... has to because she feels the need to b/c she is a teacher or is that a requirement? Just curious, my wife is a teacher also and has never had the flu shot.

Bought some beef tips for my cheat day later this week and some corn on the cobb. No butter and using zero calorie cooking spray. Baked potato too with nothing on it. Potatoes are cheap been doing all kinds of things with them. I love cutting them up and frying them with onion.

Are you going to gym regularly?
