October 29th 2011 I'm 220 pounds and I've never been happier. I started by running to the gym everyday and cutting back on what I was eating. I dropped a good bit of weight pretty quick and just went from there.

stats:
bench - 255
Squat - 340
Dead - 375

As of right now, all my long term goals are strength related. Basically within a year I want to have at least a 1.5:1 strength to weight ratio on all my core lifts: bench, squat, and dead lift. However I've already achieved that on my dead lift and squat, so I'll be shooting for 2:1 ratio on those two.

The way I figure it with my current weight that would put me at a 330lb bench, 440 squat and 440 deadlift. I've yet to meet a person that puts up numbers like that who doesn't look huge, jacked, swole, beastly etc which is why all my goals are related to strength and not physique/weight.

Its a big goal I know, but no one got anywhere dreaming small.
