listen dude if you compare my stage shots to your stage shots, my condition appears better. period. don't put the laughing smiley after your sentence to hide you knowing this even though you might not admit it. at the very least our condition was equal. my mistake was not dieting long enough, not how i dieted. the ONLY "cheating" i did was occasionally having 1 tbls of PB at night when i was so hungry i couldn't sleep. it is more beneficial to my losing fat getting a full nights rest than depriving myself of a 100cal tblspoon of peanut butter.
