Just started mine last week, and its ten weeks out this past weekend. Right now I'm 248 at 9.5% so I'm starting leaner than I have in the past, and I'm giving myself much more time to lose it than for my last shows. My spring 2001 diet was only 8 weeks, and I started at a fat bloated 270, ended up dropping over 50lbs in that time. Not going to repeat that nightmare.
BigPresser, are you doing the Junior USAs this spring? I think I remember you saying something about it in a previous post.
