The last few months I have focused on weight training. I have made some significant progress and keeping this somewhat secretive. I don't post on facebook about it but have been getting comments from coworkers about losing weight (I don't see it as much) and so forth.
I'm not where I want to be yet, but I will be.
My arthritis & joint issues, if anything, are only getting worst. I'll be doing something as simple as mowing the lawn (My lawnmower is 190CC and AWD meaning it doesn't take any effort from me to push it) and I have to lay on the ground on my back for a few minutes due to my back locking up. I did my best to push through this over the years, thinking it would get better but I've came to accept it won't. I can lift weights, and have very little issues because my upper body, legs, arms, etc. aren't that injured (have a few shoulder issues but not even half as bad as my back).
I was never huge into lifting weights but was into power lifting around 15-17 and excelled to breaking school records in a few lifts. I cut back a lot on weight lifting in my early 20s to focus more on being at "fighting weight" which I would have to always cut weight for in kickboxing & Muay Thai. I then fell off of weight lifting so it's fun to be starting something over again.
