I started to get serious around April of 03. I weighed around 140. I would estimate now I weigh between 178 and 185. Lately, I've been slacking off heavily because of work and loads of school. I'm annoyed, so I'm going to get serious again. :bang:

Current measurements:
Chest: 40.5"
Arms flexed: 15"
Calves: 14"
Quads: 22"

Nice name, man. Hyperspace was an awesome book. ;)

You and I are the same proportion almost as far as height:weight. You're just as pale as me, too :p I'll be interested in keeping up with your journal.

ok well i've been a lazy bum on updating, but i have been getting in the weight room a minimum twice, mostly 3 times a week. and, for some reason, i've gained tons of chest power, which I had been lagging.

went from sets of 165 to most recently:

185 x 4 x 2
190 x 5 x 1
