I'm an Irish journalist who has wanted to transform my skinny frame into something brawnier ever since I was a teen. It's as hard for me to gain muscle weight as it is for others to lose weight.
I came across a potential solution to my problem and it's an online coaching program called Scrawny to Brawny and based out of Canada. It's a 12-month program that started in May 2012 so it's a huge commitment.

I also decided to keep a blog of my progress. I'm paying for the program entirely out of my own pocket. And remember, just like you, I don't know how this story ends.
