thankyou for your message appreciate it :-) bless you! yeah it is intersting and i have done a lot of looking on the internet but there isnt a great deal of positive information to be honest in regards to the op and later life with it. My surgeon told me that i can expect to be suffering from the side effects for years afterwards they dont really seem to know a lot about it themselves. the hospital told me to start eating solid food three days after the op which i cant even understand! I found it very difficult for quite a while afterwards and even still find there are times when i will sit down to eat and as soon as i start i cant swallow it and end up being sick it does get you down but i try to stay positive by thinking that i could be in a much worse state there are some people out there who are really suffering and after that i dont feel so bad. before i had the op i weighed around 14 and 1/2 stone and by the time i had reached my plateu of weight loss i went down to around just under 9 stone. i ended up having to see a dietician (which didnt help) and then eventually cause they couldnt put the weight loss down to aynthing else i was pretty much told that there wasnt anything else they could do and that i would just have to pretty much live with it! if theres any info you would like on the op and what not then i am sure that i can dig it all out for you i have loads on it if your interested? oh and by the way is that an actual picture of you or just one you found?

Oh shoot.. I misread your first post. I read that you'd LOST 9 3/4 stone, not that you were down to that weight. My bad. OK, so you've lost 66.5 pounds (4 3/4 stone) and you're now at 136 pounds. Gotcha. (I gotta learn to stop speed reading)


And yes, that picture is me

I wish I looked like that right now!

I compete, so my training and diet regimes are pretty strict. as a general overview, I usually lift 4 days a week (sometimes 3 or sometimes 5, depending on if I'm prepping for a show or not) upper/lower splits. Cardio anywhere from 2-4 days a week (again, depending on my season) and it's usually pretty short. I try not to go over 20 minutes of cardio a day.

The basis of my diet.. Protein with every meal (of course), 6 meals a day, P/C for 2-3 meals, P/F for 3-4 meals.

So much of what I do depends on where I am in my seasons

I've got tons of pictures of myself. But I don't really post much of them here besides my avi and profile pic.

No comps set in stone at the moment. I have a few in mind, but right now I'm mainly dieting to work some booths at shows and a few photo shoots. Then once I get leaned out some more, I'll make more definite plans for shows.

In terms of the Starting Strength program, it IS a good program. But given your somewhat recent medical situation, it *might* be a little taxing for you. Again, it comes down to how much you can keep up with the nutritional end of things. Physically, I'm sure you'd be fine with it. But like I said, if nutritionally, you can't get enough in to support the expenditure of the program, you could overtax your system.

Have you looked over the program at all? I'd say that if you were to give that one a try, start off with half the volume (cut out up to half of the prescribed sets. So on the 5x5's, try 3x5 or 2x5) and see how you feel after 2-3 weeks of it. If you're not feeling overly tired or sick to you tummy after that amount of time, start moving your way up toward getting in the total volume of the program.
