Well, if 10Ibs lean is the upper limit in common wisdom here, I look forward to proving you all wrong.
I think what you're all forgetting is that I've already laid down hundreds and hundreds of hours in the gym lifting hundreds, if not thousands of tons, and all of that on your average desk-jockey sandwich diet. Did the work, but didn't eat the food. Now, you start to feed a muscle what it's craved over the years, it's got to respond well (they already are). On top of that, my career pressures are over, I'm pretty much set, so no distractions. I'll also be tape-measuring my gut as frequently as every other bodypart.
I'm shooting for 20IBS LMT by the end of 2012 - YES, 20. TW-EN-TY. You read it here first. I owe it to myself, and you'd all do the same in my position.
And another lean 10 by Christmas 2013. That's the challenge, your move. I'll be posting here, fellas, this site has been up for about a decade and so you'll still be able to see me keep my word next year, and the year after.
And I will.
