Wow, nice job everyone! Bryce gets my vote, but you all did wonderfully. This has my psyched for the current contest, which I am participating in. I plan on being shredded by July 8) (I think that is the date...).

I voted for Bunnylau.

Although Bryce looks the most impressive, I think Bunnylau displays the most significant change.

I made those tank tops for a small group of people who said they were going to do the summer shape up challenge (Bryce & I were the only people who finished - that I know of) http://www.veganfreaks.net/forum/index.php

Thanks for all those who completed the challenge. In the future we'll think of a better way to support the contestants during the challenge. There were probably more than two dozen people who started but less than 10 who completed the challenge.

For the current 6-month challenge I know most are keeping a training log which is one way to help keep people motivated and consistent.

I hope everyone had fun!

I gave my vote to Bryce, though it was hard to not give it to the guy who had the Burn tattoo! :shock:

seeing these results makes me want to join the next one.

I was torn between bryce and bunnylalu, but decided to go with bunny since her results were most noticable.
Hard for me to judge when people have different poses for before and after.

Great job everybody! Thanks to whoever voted for me. You have NO idea how hard it is to make changes between close comps--esp. since there was a weeklong vaycay in there too. :lol: If you want to see where I started, check out the spring shape up challenge. Anyway, the pics for the show these afters (pink suit) preceded by a couple of weeks were great. Best I've ever looked! :D

Warning for those with weak stomachs: I entered the Jan to June one too. The befores are pretty darn scary. :shock: My goal? Not to gain so much post-show. I hope to have gained upper body size in the off season, but that's not an appropriate "goal statement" for the Jan-June challenge since I did most of my bulking Oct-Jan. My trainer says the weight gain was inevitable after losing so much weight and dieting down for so many shows, but. . .gross! :oops:

Anyhow, there should be a big change from my bulking befores to the May show (if not, I won't compete--hello! :wink: ), I'll take another set of pics then, and then my goal is not to blow up as much post-show for the June afters. Hopefully I'll be able to come in looking better this Fall than last if I can do that.

...I think everyone has done so well, I really can't pick among them. They all seem to have achieved pretty equal amounts of change with respect to their own selves and stated goals, and then comparing those amounts among them. But I'll look at the pics some more later, maybe I'll notice something different.

Contests always make me sad for those who don't "win." Everyone in the world should be a winner because then there would be no losers.

I know what you but this group chose to be voted on. There were about 25 people involved in the challenge but only 6 wanted to be voted on so they knew there would technically be "winners."

I agree that everyone is a winner and it's hard to choose. I could give a valid argument for each person to be the "winner" (mostly due to my bodybuilding eye, Daywalker has the same ability to notice certain things).

Part of the motivation is $1000 in prizes, but even more is to show images of the hard work and the results. I think that is the main reason these people chose to have their photos displayed publicly.

I am the same way. I always enter photos for a variety of contests. I think it's just part of my personality and these half dozen people share that too.

I do know what you mean though, and I feel the same way. They are all winners, but for this contest we'll have them placed 1st-6th and award prizes accordingly.

Great feedback, thanks!

Okay--I see what you mean now! I was looking at this from my own perspective rather than from the perspective of a bodybuilder (which I've always wanted to be but could never be, though I work at staying fit). You're right about knowing something will be a "contest" when people enter--I think that's probably the case in general with this stuff. I just always feel bad picking among individuals because that's my personality: I'm not crazy about seeming hierarchies. But I hear what you're saying/implying about wanting to reward people so they stay motivated to keep breaking seeming limits.

I'll look over the pics and info later when I can devote more time to them: because everyone seems to have done so equally well, maybe any differences between their change amounts are really subtle. Not that I'm an expert on this because I'm not. I just got the email sent out to everyone and wanted to explain how I felt before putting in my two cents, for what my two cents are worth, which may be diddly. :D
