I enjoyed your post and I didn't think it was self indulgent at all. Quite interesting actually. I hope to follow your journey
in the weeks and months to come. I am quite new to MDA, but still watching from the bushes, even though I know it would be ideal for me (64 yrs, 6"3, 310 lbs [i don't do metric]-even up here in Canada) Maybe you will be my inspiration to start.
I have followed the paths of a few individuals whose posts I enjoyed. All of them have stopped cold. Like they dropped off the face of the earth with no warning. I found it disconcerting, and a little sad.
I am curious about your use of protein powder. Is that the stuff you buy at body building shops? How do you incorporate it into your meals. Probably a foolish question, but no fool like an old fool.
Hope to hear from you.
