Why do you NEED to get to 198?
Why not just keep getting stronger and kill it at the meet? [/quote]
but 218 to 198 will be easy, just clean up your diet and scale portions. 10lbs can be lost from water weight overnight relatively easily and safely. I went from 186lbs on monday, drank a shit ton of water, stopped eating excessively and ate clean, and was 181lbs thursday. Thursday I ate no carbs after breakfast and had one water bottle the whole day. Weighed in friday 10am at 174.4lbs. Complete overkill as I didn’t want to get down that much, but atleast I know now what to do and it will help me in the future. It’s a learning experience just like everything else.
