Almost 50 and looking for advice

Hi I'm Tony from Scotland , I've been on a bit of a mission over the last year. Last Christmas I was over 20 stone and looked in the mirror and thought fuck you've let yourself go. All fat no muscle.

One year on and I'm 14st 6lb , been training for about eight months now on a split routine as that's what I enjoy as it probably reminds me of youth. My problem is fatigue, I feel totally knackered.

Im still on a calorie defecit around 1800 calories, 

I was wondering if my tetestorone was low and if steroids would give me the push I need but looking to learn and educate myself before I rush into anything.

Any advice greatly appreciated

I am not real certain of the healthcare system in Scotland because I live in a country still holding onto profits over actual health. Are you able to get a full male hormone panel done where you live? That is what you are going to need. If you are able to post the results here on MG and we will walk you through it.

Do you know what is wrong with Scotland? Its full of Scotts! ;))))

Doubt thats going to work in Scotland. I guess he could rack up some frequent flyer miles traveling to the US for regular blood work. ;)

Welcome to the site and know

Welcome to the site and know that I am quite impressed that you did what I failed to do and you are seeking knowledge before using aas.

That said, after the blood work, figure out some of your goals and wander the archives a bit. You will probably find that everything you want to know about achieving those goals....from nutrition, to steroid help, and exercise. Has probably already been covered or maybe even better has been touched upon and you may have some questions and insights to help expand the knowledge base even further.

As a relatively new guy who has traveled a very similar path to yours let me encourage you to find people whose notes and comments best 'fit' your personality and reach out to them as a 'friend' on the site. You will find outstanding help in those scenarios on personal questions.

Good luck and I bet you find you like what steroids can do for you! Just be careful with some of the 'bigger ones' and start small and safe....

I hope you hang around and thanks for joining MG.
