Two years ago this month I started to exercise after many years of not and started my training log on line, first at veganfitness, then at veganbodybuilding a little while later. I took some (poor) pics a few days ago (age 50, 194 lbs) to compare with the ones from before starting (48 yo, over 220 lbs ).

Nice work young man!
By the time you rerach 50 I can imagine you on the cover of one of those fitness mags. :popcorn:

Thanks. I am 50 (read it again) and I don't think I'll be on the cover of fitness magazines when I'm 52 either. I was very hesitant to post the now at 50 ones, until I looked at the then at 48 ones.
