Wanted to say hello.
I have been reading/lurking and PE’ing for several months now, and decided it was time to officially join the community. I also felt that because this is a free site, and I have already seen benefits, that I am obligated to share with those who may be curious about PE or just beginning their PE journey. I also feel obligated to add to this wonderful body of knowledge.
So to those who might be reading wondering if this is some kind of giant shared delusion, I can assure you it’s not. I stumbled on this site in May of this year, and began reading, and reading, and reading. After a month I was ready. I took my first measurements, set my goal, and started tugging on my unit like so many that had come before. On 6/16/08 my measurements were: EBPL=6.5 EG=4.75.
For the first month my routine was sporadic, to say the least. In fact I didn’t bother to measure again until 8/17/08. I was shocked to see my measurements had changed at all. My new stats were: EBPL=6.8 EG=4.8.
I decided this was worth getting serious about. And as of this writing I am: EBPL=7 EG=5.
My goal is EBPL=8.75 EG=6.5 and I feel that with the help of this site and the wealth of collective knowledge it provides, I’m going to get there.
Peace and happy tugging
