I thought that was a standard salad/cereal bowl?


Haha well then scratch that. I was just trying to find a way to describe a really big bowl :joy:

Looking good Rat :slight_smile:


@bigpappafrance @mortdk

Thanks y’all


Now this is what I call a salad.

Spinach, kale, bell pepper, broccoli, nutritional yeast flakes, chickpeas, mushroom, raisins, cucumber, walnuts, almonds, tomatoes

Topped with homemade honey mustard

The smaller bowl is my brother’s cause he can’t stomach a King’s Salad


Looking really solid man! Your back especially is nice and wide. Great progress


Looking lean and mean man. Damn there are some solid looking lean guys around here. This old man needs to up his game.


@jackolee thanks jack. I’m going to try to keep losing some of the love handle fat to get my v taper to show a little more. Hope you are feeling good and ready to rock that contest

@simo74 thanks Simo, I appreciate it. Don’t discount yourself. You’re stronger than me, so you probably have at least as much muscle once you cut off the fat. Plus, I definitely wouldn’t call you an old man haha


Looking solid, looking good (except for the Tennessee hat…). Tennessee’s color and logo are just a poor attempt to copy Texas’.


Haha I’m actually an Alabama fan (cause I go to school there). However, my home is in Tennessee, so I have to blend in with all of the UT fans. I kid you not, when I put an Alabama sticker on my car, all of my tires got slashed within a week

Bloody hell matey looking awesome in them shots! I’ve only been absent for a few days WTF lol You must have rubbed a genies lamp and wished for insane progress. In truth a lot of hard work and dieting is paying off … nice one bud
