Hey gents. I really enjoy reading up on the forum and I am always shy to post because there is a huge wealth of knowledge here, and I'd hate to say something stupid. Because of that temerity, you guys don't know me at all, or where I'm coming from with regards to bodybuilding.
So here I'd just like to get you all up to speed with my journey through iron.
It all started in 2008 when I decided I was tired of being fat and out of shape. It was my New Years Resolution to compete (how cliche, eh?), but who knew that it was a decision that would change my life. I am a natural competitor, and I'm loving it. I haven't had great showings (especially my first), but I've been flying mostly solo and have had to learn everything the hard way. My very first show was November 08, the USBF Baltimore Natural. I had plenty of time to bulk, then cut and get ready for my grand debut.
#1 and #2- The start January 5, 2008.
#3 and #4- I thought I figured out how to bulk. Apparently I just learned how to get fat. The end of my bulk, I knew I'd need a lot of cut time. June 22, 2008.
#5 and #6- Here I am 1 week away from show time. Obviously nothing to be proud of, but dammit, I did everything I could.
#7- The Baltimore Natural, I have a ton of blurry pics, but here I am the night before.
*edit- it would seem I can only upload 3 pics at a time? Forgive the extra posts.
