1.5 sounds low....but i understand you ran it for years. how were your results? what did you lose when you stopped?
I don't report any loss because I had more time
after retirement to eat better, sleep better, work out with more energy and have sufficient time to do extra cardio .
Hence, everything balanced out so to speak .
The way I see it, GH allowed me to cut corners here and there physique wise and get away with it. I stayed lean year round even without trying.
I could sit down this second
and make a hundred item list of "things to do." after retirement - Painting, caulking, window cleaning, power washing, cooking, working out and cardio, sidewalk expansion joints maintenance, garbage can platform repair, 5 small motor oil changes, drill sharpening, etc., etc., ad nauseum ...lol.
The more you own, the more it owns your time.
Welcome to the second half of your life.
Fit, strong and lean at 60 and loving it!
