    Not really, man. Had a lifestyle/stress related inadvertant cut earlier this year and the weight hasn't bounced back. To be honest though, I haven't made the effort. Still not sure if I want to get back up around 240 or if I'll stay ~225.

    Yup, staying consistent and strong, bud. And if strength isn't really taking a hit at the lower weight, not much reason to bulk up is there?
