yo to everyone on this board. I'm starting this thread after about 5 months straight of consistent training. I started college in late august and weighed about 150 lbs. After a few weeks, my weight went down to a horrible 147. I am 6 foot 3 inches tall, so those were terrible numbers. Well I got serious around Christmas break, and now I'm at about 167 lbs. Well I'm starting off this summer and I plan on getting even more intense. I'm gonna change up my whole routine, and add alot to my eating regimen. It's gonna be tough with work and summer classes, but I plan on staying dedicated and consistent. I have become seriously addicted to lifting and not much can stand in my way.

My goal by the end of summer is to be 180 lbs, but i will still be bulking up, so i wont begin attempting to cut down on fat or do cardio stuff until i get to at least 185. It's not gonna be easy but i don't plan on quitting.

Like I said, I'm changing it all up in a couple weeks, and I'll post it up when I do.
