It's been a long time since I've posted here. Went for a short hiatus to focus on some school things and really crack down on the weight loss. I've gotten lazy recently and I think this 8 week recomp will be huge in bouncing me into new strength.
I started losing weight last June. I was 6'2 at 245 pounds, 42 inch waist, well over 35% body fat. Lost 20 pounds over the Summer the unhealthy way, on 981 cal's a day. The first mile I ran was in 15 minutes and I threw up afterward. I could barely curl 15 pound weights.
Here's a picture when I first started:

This was taken not too long ago:
Once again, sorry for the pics, I will take new ones and post them up here ASAP for the log.
I sit now at 6'4, 185 pounds, 35 inch waist. Thanks to the guys at anabolicminds, I got to a decent weight and gained a crapload of strength along the way. For the last 2 months, I've been off of every supplement except whey and amino acids. For this 8-week recomp log, I plan to use the following supplements:
Back on creatine, I want to gain some serious strength to prepare myself for basketball next year in college, as well as increasing my general fitness level. To aid in the strength gains, I will be using...
I don't expect this to do much for me at 18 years old, but I purchased it along with the neovar when nutraplanet had the sale going on a LONG time ago.
Also, the other supporting supplements I will be using will be:
1.) One-a-day Men's Health Active Formula
2.) ON 100% Whey Protein
3.) Amino Acids
