Well… here it is. My dreaded before and after lol. From 180 to 215 (time between pics is 21 weeks and 3 days). Can we just end the Comp now @Bigmurph, jk! I met my goal up 15 lbs and still slightly visible abs (BARELY ).

215.4 today. Diet will remain the same this next week, but I am going to add back in cardio. 5x a week at 20 min. See what hat does for me. Then adjust the diet from there to try to keep at this weight. Or at least above 210 for the cruise.
Today is just puppy time and shopping with mom. Gunna look for some new gym clothes after using he same ones for 5 years lmao. Too fat for my cutoffs now, gotta save them for shredded season.
