Back in 2007 I decided to start losing weight. I weighed in at 270 lbs and joined the Biggest Loser online club. I got down to 219 lbs but shot back up due to working 3 jobs and being around bad choices. November 2009 I decided enough was enough and I decided to go vegetarian. I was tired of feeling sick all the time. I tried the 21 day vegan kickstart in Jan 2010 but it didn't quite stick.... So in April 2010 I tried it again and it stuck!! I started to make the changes and soon found out I had even more energy that disrupted my sleep. I was working nights and didn't go to the gym. It was 1 yr ago that I started back at the gym. My weight was 265 lbs.... Wasn't a happy camper. Fast forward to today it is 1 yr later I am now 68 lbs lighter, at the gym daily doing something to burn off my energy. Everyday someone is coming up to me asking how much I have lost or come up to compliment me on my progress. The best compliments come from the bodybuilders :D I have a ways to go and no intentions of stopping. I hope to compete in figure in 2013!

Thanks I still have work to do to them but even my personal trainer friend is very impressed cause his don't even look that good. It is by far my best asset thus far :)

Are they strong? My calves are decent but weak as hell, and sometimes I see people walking around on sticks calf press a bunch of weight..
