        18 lbs is not impressive because 8-10lbs of it is probably fat + water weight in muscles.

            because most people have been lifting for around 3 months. its always a different cycle of beginners who ask it.
            in a way it is pretty logical question. they see a body so they want to know what the guy does. but obviously in the end its a meaningless question.

    Left: Some time in early 2020 I think. ~195 lbs
    Middle: March 3 of this year
    ~165 lbs
    Right: Now
    ~160 lbs
    I've been 6ft since age 13
    I've basically been trying to recomp. I'm visibly leaner (I think), and far stronger than I was in the middle pic.
    For reference:
    >7 Pull ups on a good day, 225 lb bench on left
    >14 Pull ups, 195 lb bench in middle pic
    >32 Pull ups, ~260 lb bench now

    Despite running an average of about 20 miles/week since the start of 2022, I was just as fast (in both speed and distance) in all 3 pics. Strange...

        >Left
        Not *entirely* sure, but If I had to hazard a guess, 4,000 on an average day. My family has serious hardgainer traits...so long as we're severely overweight.
        Paradoxically, I was also more active throughout the day back then. Still in high school (I'm 100% certain the pic was pre-Covid-Lockdowns). The school had weight training as a class. I was taking it. I was on the wrestling team (where I found out I fucking suck at wrestling).
        My only *real* problem was I ate like a ham-galaxy.
        >Center and Right
        2,500 in both, believe it or not. OMAD too. Slamming down a whole day's worth of food at 8:00 in the morning is unironically a great time and no one can convince me to go back to 3 meals a day.

      whats strange about it? you are running the same 20 miles per week, you are not progressive overloading. you wont make progress doing the same thing even if you do it for 10 years. if you literally just do the same thing nothing happens, you maintain it. run 30 miles, 40 miles, do sprints, etc. You need to progressive overload and do something MORE and different to challenge your body to have a reason to improve

        I feel much better emotionally, one entire wall of my room is mirrors so now ever time I look over I don't see a fat piece of garbage. Now I'm just a slightly overweight piece of garbage.
        That being said I physically don't feel different, because its such a subtle change over time I always get used to it before the differences become apparent.
