    help getting back on track after a fat winter

    I've been through a lot in the weightlifting and cardio business before, I spent a good year dedicated to everything I ate, kept track of all types of cals, and had a series of workouts. I was in the best shape of my life last summer, but I have fallen off lately over the last 6 months. I really want to show off all that work I put in a year ago and so on, but I don't know if I will see it again and I've gotten to a point where I have been lazy. But im looking to turn that around

    What I'm getting at is, If i put in a lot of hardwork for a couple years, and now I'm at a point where I am not happy with the way I look and feel, will it be easy to turn that around and quickly see my old self again? Or am I looking at having to do the same workouts for the same ammount of time, 18 months, to regain my old body. Also just posting for something to get me commited to making this change, here are my stats: 18 y.o., 190 pds, 5 10. I used to be able to bench up to 265 at my peak, now my guess woul dbe I couldnt do half that.

    It'll take a bit of time but not all is lost. Muscle memory etc.. you just gotta burn the fat off. Wont be instantanious, but wont take forever either id say.

    Good luck!

    I am in the same position as you. Winter was hard on me, ate everything and anything. Decided to get back after it a couple weeks ago. Started with the nutrition first, lifted just some light compounds first week in. Second week a little heavier. This week I am going back on my WBB1 routine. Lost 4# since I started and already noticing the losening in my pants. My heavy lift ( bench )1.5 years ago was 245# I got 185 # last Saturday so it is coming back to me relatively quick. I guess the commitment is the biggest thing. You'll be back in no time.
