My waist is actually a bit more narrow now than in that picture. Now, I'm having problems finding pants/shorts that fit in the waist but that can handle my quads. I went to the mall looking for beach trunks the other week. My waist fits into 29's and 30's very well. But, it doesn't leave much to the imagination they are so tight around my legs. 33's fit my legs, but fall off, literally. Guess its to the dry cleaners for a little tailoring.
I've gotta get some new pics up, but the light is so bad in my apartment, I really need to take them at the gym in the cardio room or something. Maybe I should just make a video with STP's "Creep" as the theme song. I really am "half the man I used to be." Or maybe Collective Soul's "Better Now" would be more appropriate.

For me, and take this for what it's worth, the training/program planning/nutrition stuff was super easy because I've been doing this for so long. What I had to focus on was the legal stuff in the back of the book...it felt like I had a lot of questions about that stuff. Also, just make sure you have a good understanding of what exercises work what muscles...that was easy for me but there were a lot of questions about that.

A few New Pics
I took these today. I gotta take the good digicam to the gym tomorrow. Sorry about the size and poor quality. But, maybe these are clear enough to get some feedback, mostly
1) I think I need to work on my bi's a bit to get them proportionate to my delts. They are reasonably cut, but my delts totally overpower them in person when I look at them in the mirror.
2) And advise to build my right outer calf. I've dropped a bit of calf size overall, but they are much better shaped and more vascular. It's just that S1 nerve damage gives me fits trying to get it to grow. I can go high rep, light on it, but not heavy, as it gives out long before my left.
Anyway, a few pics.

Very impressive transformation. At my largest I was 265 and I am now in the 200 range with some musle tone. I still have a ways to go, but I am determined to get there. I will post a thread once I have the ability to post my pics.

My New Long Term Goal
Well, its been a year since I ended the first big cut, and its time for a new long term goal. So, here it is. In the last year, I've added just over an inch to my bi's and started to make some inroads on my chest. I went to the store Sunday, and bought this over-sized tank top. The goal is to add at least another 10 lean pounds to my body, and fill this thing out while staying in these shorts (they are 30 inch waist).
It's an ambitious goal to make clean bulking, but I think I can make it. It's just a matter of eating right and lifting hard. ress: And a little bit of luck.

Rest of Jul 08 Update
Here are the rest of the pics from the other day. Sometimes, I think that I haven't been progressing very much, but 1/2 the people I know think I have body dysmorphia and are serious about it (especially over my chest.) Several people come back to me telling me that pictures do not show how big I am now, and over the last few months a lot of people keep asking me if I am getting ready for competition. I just do not see it though, as my weight on the scale stays basically pegged to where it was 7 months ago. I do know that I need someone to teach me HOW TO POSE PROPERLY.
I'm thinking about trying to bulk for another 6 months or so, get up to 215 or so, and then start a clean cut to see if I can finally shred the abs.
Anyway, any feedback on where to focus my workouts on?

First time Iíve seen this thread. Truly amazing transformation! Itís insane! I've never seen such a huge change! You must have worked so hard! Huge inspiration to everyone! I'll defo be showing this to a few friends.
Did you get a lot of stretch marks? If so how did you combat them?

I didn't have the stretch marks all over like you would think. I have some around my tris and stomach. They have just faded over time. The hard reddish color faded first, kid of looking like a scar, and now he scar look is fading away. I didn't use a special product. I keep my protein intake high and take a vitamin E supp, to try to help the skin repair itself. The only lotion, etc that I use consistently is Aussie Gold tan intensifier. But, honestly, I do not know why its happened the way it has.

An Update - April 09
One of the guys here came across my Youtube vids and reminded me that I have not updated in a while. So, here it is. Yes, I am still in the gym. Everyday, as a matter of fact, now that I have my PT certification. All of my coworkers talk about how I can related to clients -- but they all know that I have not been in shape forever and it helps. Anyway, I am slowly gaining size, and strength. I think I am finally starting to develop better through the pecs, which has been a major battle.
And I am starting to vid some of my lifts. I'll post the newest one here. My squats on Monday. 465 lbs x 6 reps. I was dead tired, being the 7th set of squats. We taped this to correct some form issues with my feet and needing to go a little deeper. But, from where I started, not bad I think, and I will ass-to-grass this one day. :-)
A few update pics now and vid.
