RIP 장군삼춘

My uncle passed away tonight. I got a call at 10pm from my aunt asking me if I could come over because uncle wasn't doing too well. She asked if I could help get him to the hospital. I rushed over, but his condition had gotten worse, so we decided to call 911. The fire department, sheriff officers, and medical team arrived in about 5 minutes and tried to resuscitate him but he was gone. He passed away from pancreatic cancer stage 4 which had spread to his liver and kidneys.

RIP Uncle.

This was the first time in my life I saw someone die in front of my eyes, and to say the least it's a traumatic experience. You really can't describe it in words, nor will anyone unfamiliar with this experience understand the emotions that someone goes through in this situation. After the shock is gone though, the dead body appears to be someone sleeping. I can sorta understand now why soldiers go into PTSD.

Post 60 Day Diet Results

Forgot to post this on June 1st. Total weight loss was 25lbs, however this does not include the added muscle mass. I think i'm at about 12% body fat right now. Current weight is 185lbs and I haven't felt this good since 2011. Back then (2011) i was slim at 175lbs, but i had no muscle mass. I just looked skinny with no definition. This time around I may be 10lbs heavier, but have broader shoulders and a decent 4 pack.

Next phase will be to go down to my ideal goal of 170-175lbs. Optimal weight for a totally cut 5'11 tall person is 175, but that's for people going into body building competitions. I think at 170 I will get the washboard abs i was aiming for. I haven't felt this good in a very long time. Once i reach my 170 goal, it will probably have been over 15 years since i've been in this shape.

Losing weight at this stage gets really hard. Some people peak out and strain to lose the last 10-15lbs. It may take a while, but I will have to press forward. Based on my spreadsheet calculator I created on Excel it's going to take another 45 days. I hope to post more photos then.
