Fresh start! ok so i've been slacking on my nutrition and not working out really at all, i've also found out I definitely have a gluten intolerance possibly celiac, but no sweat! I've been off the wheat and gluten for 4 weeks now and I think my body is use to the change so time to incorporate my love of fitness and bodybuilding .I"ll stop putting this off and post my new numbers and goals

Belly button-31"

goals-
BY the end of 1st week- track all of my meals, meet my protein needs lose some water pudge, lose an inch off of my waist from water retention from all the potatoes and beans and rice I've been eating . Repost my weight and body fat. Start utilizing this supportive community more!!!

I love the way you set out your goals. Family stuff can get so in the way for me- it's been my struggle for a long time. Looks like you're ready to kick some butt, from the way you posted these first goals! How's it going? and... what's your recipe for tofu egg salad?
