Nice progress Rod.
Michael that is the most interesting way to look at it I have ever seen!
And a big welcome to Fitmundy! Just truck it out for the long haul and before you know it, you'll have the body you want. The contests are a great motivator, I'm in one right now (12 weeks,) I'm on week number 9, and have lost 19.5 just in this contest. I was having great success before, but the contest put me on a blistering pace. Use your competitive side to your advantage!
It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself. ~Muhammad Ali
