I think that the people on this board are capable of so much, and no matter how hard we work, we get comfortable and fall into patterns. My hope is that this thread will show us just how much someone can accomplish when they put their mind to it (we always underestimate ourselves), motivate a bunch of people to take control, and just be a general kick in the butt for all of us.

    Thanks @hairygrandpa for the original kick in the butt!



    You just keep trying to pad your numbers man. I know you're 215. No need to play around, haha.



    Nope. You're either in now, or you're out. When opportunity knocks, you'd better be ready to answer.
    I wish I was, I felt like crying when I saw the scale. But... thats gonna be my motivation!!

  4. I'm thinking if I can use my start weight a couple weeks ago when I started my Epidrone log, I can do this. But I already killed the easy stuff. I might just be in after all. WTH, right?

    Yes! You in??? I should have mentioned you, back over a year ago you were one of the few people on here who even knew what a PSMF was when I was considering it and you had great input that helped me get started! It would be great to have you in here!

    LMAO - there's no crying in fat loss! You fight fires! Who am I kidding....I cry when I drop my candy still.

    Yes, Firetitan has the ballz to put it on the line and step into the game! Failure is not an option!

    Yes, WTH? Stop making excuses. I've been doing under 1,000 calories since May 10th (yes, I cheat at times), and I've lost over 30 pounds since then. All of my easy weight is long gone. This is the push I needed to get rid of the last 20, the toughest 20. If I can do this, you can. Jump in my friend!

    So, what exactly is this excuse? You want to join, but you don't want to commit? When is your bulk over? You don't have to stop your cut after the 6 week portion. The goal is to lose 18 pounds in 6 weeks....if you want to go to 8 weeks, that's fine, but the first 6 weeks will be epic! Join already!

  10. Meaning, I want to cut (join) but the way I've planned my training block, I am due to peak in 2 weeks (which is the end of my bulk). I'll be joining in 2 weeks. 18 lbs in 6 weeks looks like a tough task, but competition is a good plan to help motivate me.

    That works, I don't expect everyone to drop right now and start their cut. 2 weeks, and you are in! I'm sure we will have others running the same time as you. Great to have you on board (and you know I was just giving you a hard time, for fun)

    Niiiiiice. Firetitan has brought the diet game. @hairygrandpa has been quiet though. He must be busy eating his meatballs and drinking wine.

  13. I'd be so in but I'm trying to bench 4 plates right now so no big deficit for me maybe after mid October lol

    I've been lurking not posting much these days. Yeah I remember using PSMF with some strong fat burners that I can't talk about. 18lbs a bit rough for me as I'm about to go on vacation and I'd be weighing like below 150lbs if I did lol.

    Agreed. I think the correct spelling is "YOUUUUUUUUUUGE" (do people really not realize there's an H in there?)

    That said, I'ma be huger. Esp after shredding myself thanks to this stupid challenge!

    Until then, I make sure I'm a safe distance from @FireTitan so he can't knock me out before I can compete .

    JUST 6 WEEKS brother. Once you get through the first week, you will be cruising.

  18. That's all for one day:

    Life is fair it's your expectations that aren't.

  19. For what it is worth, if you are allowing others to join in on this competition make them go home today and weigh themselves and report back with their current weight today or tomorrow. That way if they try and be shady and eat a ton and spill over between now and their official start date you can just use the original weight.

    I mean I know what I am doing and could eat enough over the weekend to be 18lbs heavier on Monday or Tuesday and be right back down to my starting weight a week later. You don't want anyone sand bagging. Every time I throw a transformation contest everybody wants to get fluffy and bloat themselves for the before pictures. So now I get current pics to compare to the start pics and make sure there was no sandbagging or intentional spilling over for the first pics.

    What are the rules if everyone loses the 18lbs? Then does it go to who lost the 18 lbs the fastest or who lost the most weight in that 6 weeks?

Weight has been anywhere from 180 - 190 over the last 3 years as I try to build up some form of muscle. Still fighting some belly fat, mainly because of Mexican food. Work related stress is probably a bigger issue than I'll admit. When I saw @HIT4ME discussing this earlier today I was all about it. A deadline and committing to something is just what I need to actually do it! I'll change my workout routine to an old school push / pull / legs 3 days a week program, with 3 days of trail running (my preferred cardio) 6 miles per day. And I will be officially beginning on Monday, due to out of state meetings for the next 2 days, followed by working all weekend.

    And I can't let @hairygrandpa be the only noodz, so here in all my pudgy glory..............

    (and after seeing this, maybe I should do the whole 18 pounds )
    Man you are a brave one. You sure about this? I think 18lbs off of you right now would have you emaciated and will result in more muscle loss than you want to experience. I just don't think you are carrying enough fat to safely lose 3lbs a week without 1-1.5lbs of that being muscle after the first 2-3 weeks. From where you are now in 18 lbs you would be well into the single digits if done perfectly, but that means slower and more responsible. Perhaps you ride along but maybe only shoot for 12lbs so you don't find yourself struggling to regain mass that you just finished struggling to regain from your first weight loss. I am sure HIT4ME and HGP would be fine with that. Sounds like you need the motivation but you don't want to shoot yourself in the foot by going to aggressive on the weight loss from where you are now.

    Just my opinion brother.. This contest is to better ourselves and have fun doing it. Make sure what you plan to do will actually be an improvement. You don't want to succeed in this 18 lbs but end up looking like Christian Bale in "The Machinest"

    I would not cut right after bulking. End your bulk at a bodyfat you are comfortable at and stick there for 8-12 weeks so your body resets its LBM to your new levels of muscle and sets that as the new homeostasis. If you cut right after a bulk your body sees the new muscle as the most disposable thing. It has lived without it up until this point and sees no need to try and maintain it once you are in a deficit. Let your body become accustomed to the new mass and then diet down. You will keep more of your gains that way.

  21. ^^^^ Second this. @SFreed is already looking awesome, no need for him to punish himself that hard.
    Personally, I don't like Christian Bale -but his body transformations are awe inspiring.

  22. Losing weight ain't on my plate but I'll watch everyone else while eating some ice cream cake

    I liked him in American Psycho, he fit the bill perfectly there. I think he did fine in the Batman movies but really once the costume is on anyone could do it. He isn't one of my favorites but I still enjoy movies he is in. Even if his performance isn't stand out most of the movies he has been in are great movies. Personally he is probably a douche but I don't let him being caught having a temper tantrum bother me. So many actors out there I couldn't go see there movies if liking them or what they stand for was required for me to enjoy seeing them act like someone else.
