OK, maybe a pointless/rambling post, but..
Today I got on the scale and I weigh 303.9 pounds ( at 6'8" tall ). At my first powerlifting meet back in August ( which was 3 weeks after I started powerlifting seriously with my powerlifting friends, although I had switched my workouts prior to that but still didn't really know what I was doing ), I weighed in at 263. What's cool is that I can still wear all my pants, that is they fit just fine around the waist, but they're getting tight around the thighs, which is mind boggling to me given I'm the tall guy with really long legs ( 39 1/2" inseam ). Some people at work have been kind of taking second looks at me and then have said things like "you're getting huge", "you're turning into a mountain". LOL, I love it. Now I just need to overcome my less than desirable leverages get STRONG(er)! ( which IS happening ) The way things are going, I can see weighing 350 pounds and not being anywhere near fat.
Anyway, if anybody ever questioned if powerlifting is the way to get bigger, let me answer that question right now, it absolutely is.
Powder skiing is my other obsession... And the really, really cool thing is that with my added weight and core strength, I ski powder even better than I ever have. ( Last friday was amazing, LOL )
