I would love to compete in a contest at some point, although at 42 years of age, it would have to be a Masters class. I have been at it for years adn right now I am 6' 2 1/2" tall and I weigh 216 lbs.
I know size is not everything, but over 200 lbs is considered heavyweight so should I target a specific weight range before I start concentrating on balance and getting cut, etc?

The pics are embarrassing. Not that great. I am also embarrassed because I have gained some chub since last August. I was in great shape in August at 210 lbs. I then hurt my shoulder and stopped heavy lifting for 4 months! I was told to keep eating big but as a result gained fat. We also went to Disney World for a week and although we walked a lot, I ate a lot of bad food! Lots of deserts.
Anyway I am not in as good a shape now and I am frustrated. I lost a lot of definition and even the peak on my biceps is mostly gone and looks smaller. All I can do is keep eating better and working out and see where it takes me.
