    No pump in any of these, just a small 173 pound me.

    Flash failed, sorry.

    Great pics John! Man, it looks like you don't have any bodyfat left to lose. You must have two sets of clothes to wear - bulk and cutting clothes. :lol:

    Where are the pics of your world class legs!?!?!

    Great arms, great legs. It's time for a lean mass phase. :nod:

    Congrats on a fantastic cut.

    Thanks guys. I have to admit that it's a bit of an ego hit looking so small, but that's only 10% of how I'm feeling. 90% of me is very happy with my current weight, body fat, strength and conditioning. :nod:

    I actually have three distinct sets of clothes. My bulking clothes are going to Goodwill, as I'm pretty sure my 236 pound days are behind me for good now. :lol:

    John, I know what you mean about feeling fit. All of us guys like the mirror candy to look at, but if we're involved in physically demanding outdoor sports, being fit and lean feels great.

    Wait a minute. All these years I've been trying to get big like you and now you're the same size as me. :confused: Literally. 6' and 173#. I've got to say John, you make those stats look a lot better than me. But you're right about a size and fitness level optimized to allow full participation in the activities you love. And you still have a physique 99% of guys your age could only dream of. :tu:

    Thanks! :)




    Hah, awesome! :lol:

    Likewise, Mike.


    I talked a bit about coming to grips with my reduced size in today's blog.

    plus i'm gonna argue that it's more the poses/angles of these last pics that are makin' ya look all tiny tim. i'm sure you could post others that would make you look pretty damn beastish compared to most. :tucool:

    Possibly, but IMO the biggest factor is that I wasn't pumped in those photos. I swear, a good pump makes me look like I've got an extra 15 pounds of muscle on me.

    I could have pumped up for the photos yesterday, but I figure it's time that I start embracing having sand kicked in my face. :D

    John, I'm curious to see a side-by-side comparison of the last time you were this light, which I believe would have been way back in summer of '03 if I'm not mistaken?

    Pretty close. I was about 173 pounds in September of '03. I'm sure I have some pictures posted from back then if you're interested.

    Blimey!

    When you cut you really do cut!!!

    I guess that's why we all respect you so much here John - when you say you're going to do something, you do it! No question!

    Congrats... big time!

    I guess they must be Ponderosa Lemons then. I don't know, I was looking at pictures of Ponderosas after you posted that and mine don't quite seem to fit, but maybe it's just individual tree/fruit variance and they really are Ponderosas.

    I put my girlfriend's hand in two of the pictures for perspective. I went to the store today and the lemons there are barely bigger than large eggs; they fit in the palm of my hand.

    Yeah, that's definitely a Ponderosa lemon. Enjoy!

    Rumors of this thread's demise have been greatly exaggerated. :)

    January 25, 2012. About 2 weeks into my 2012 cut, around 187 pounds/ 10.4% body fat here. Planning to cut another ~20 pounds. I should be pretty cut up when I'm done.

    Actually I've been giving some thought about the wisdom of dropping another 20 pounds. Check out today's blog for more details.
