Still working

For me (Matt) I have always struggled with being able to gain muscle. I have finally found what works for me:

1.) Hard work outs ( been going since January)
2.) To gain any weight I need 4500 calories a day (no, that is not a lie (and you try eating 4500 somewhat healthy calories in a day, its hard!))
3.) Consistency! I have to keep at it...

Anyways this is not exactly a fair comparison, because in the picture on the right the lighting is much more flattering (direct overhead) and it was after working out. But the picture on the right is how I am feeling, which is GOOD! =) Up about 20 lbs on the year and only up 1-2% in body fat. I have 3 more months, I am just starting another phase of 4500 calorie days to try to put some more muscle on. Wish me determination ;)



  1. What a difference 10 months makes, huh? I'm so proud of you, babe. You've been working so hard, and your hard work shows. I love you!


  2. Wow Matt!!! You look like a totally different person, or your older hotter brother! :) I'm so glad you were able to take charge of your body, and make it do what you want it to. Send some of that determination my way!
    Lookin' great!

  3. WOW! Such a big difference! WOW! That's all I can say... :-)
