I am happy being skinny. I have lost some 35# since my BB days and never looked back. I am healthier, feel better and I know my body is not being abused with heavy cycles.

Yeah I went down to 141 last year for a few comps but it was just way too light. restricting water and calories at the same time was awful. I was a prick. at 154 I can eat and drink as much as I like.

soo true. The obsessing over how I looked was very draining. and once I made the switch to eating to feel good and be healthy the look I wanted just fell into place.

I'm 40 and feel like I'm just starting to peak. This year is the first time I ran GH and I'm loving it. Besides that I haven't ran anything other than test for the last 10+ years. And my doses haven't exceeded 350mg per wk. I'm getting ready to come off for a couple months but would like to bump my doses up slightly to see how much solid mass I can add.

I started out at when I was 25 at 180 lbs and now just shy of 220 lbs. I always stay pretty lean and have never been to the point where you can't see abs.

I honestly think it would be hard mentally if I went back down to 180 lbs again.

Well I'm a woman so that doesn't count but when I started lifting seriously I remember England telling that I was 5ft7 and 136 lbs (he had to converse my height and weight from meter/centimeters and kilos into ft/in and lbs lol). I never weigh myself since I have suffered from anorexia in the past but work doc insisted and checked my height (which stayed the same) and weight (138 lbs but that's because I have some water retention from the Himalaya salt that I put in my food and also my carb intake) .... I wish I'd weigh 130 lbs

You're still relatively young. Another 10 - 15 years you'll be where I'm reflecting. You're probably not looking at 180. You're probably looking at more like 200. By the time you get to mid 50s the joints start to complain. Squats and deeds are out. Some size loss is inevitable. Hard to accept at 40 but it happens to everyone eventually. Steroids and GH let you supersaturate you muscles with glycogen and intracellular water so about 8-10 lbs of that is really from the added glycogen, mineral retention and water. Drop deads and squats and some thickness goes. So as an old man you might be a lean hard 200 on HRT or if you can recover, natural. Probably better for you overall since the added weight is harder on the body in the older years.

No way for me haha. I've been 230+ since 18. I'll be 54 next month, weigh a lean 250 @ 5'11.5. I'm still bangin the iron as hard as when I was 24, although lighter weights on some movements, heavier on others. If I ever got down to 200 I would be anorexic. I've never ran big cycles, usually under 1g total and have always come off between cycles. Feel healthy, bp usually around 125/80. I will keep on keepin on - GOD willing - until it's my time.

P.S - I didn't come to the darkside until I was 40, so I'm sure that helps.

I've been living on hrt to 4 or 500 mg a week, with occasional additions to get to like a gram, for a few years now. I don't train as heavy and train smarter. I still go heavy but it's more calculated now.

I'm a quite lean 215 at 6ft tall. People often ask if I weigh 240 or something.

Last weekend I hand shoveled 4 tons of river gravel and about 5 cubic yards of dirt. I'm very grateful my back wasn't even sore! It was tired but not sore. That's from training smart and building some bad ass functional hamstrings. Thanks Doc.

Anyhow yea I can trade not being a big deal for being happy healthy and athletic.
