After a 6 month absence from the stage, the itch to compete has gotten the better of me. I have been trying to regain size, but my body likes to stay lean and defined. I am now consuming around 9800 calories a day and am gaining about a pound per month, not quite the progress i would like to see. The good news is, I'm me; which sounds odd but as you fully get to know me, you will realize i will never consider myself the best looking, most defined, most muscular etc. but i will find a way to get the job done and come out successful! Its a long, enjoyable road from the gym to the stage, one im proud to say ive taken and one ill soon be on again. I thank all of you for joining me on this journey; good luck to you all and hopefully i can hear some of your stories as well!
