Round Rock, Texas..... I know excatly where that is. Get ready for some extremely warm weather for most of the year. If you have winter coats donate them to Charity and replace them with light jackets and rain coats.

Welcome Achilles! I'm from Texas - San Angelo? I was in Dallas in August - it was beautiful! I have to say I love how friendly Texans are! While Iowans are nice, they are not as friendly as you guys!

Good Luck on the body building - I worked with weights when I was younger but have lost the urge to continue, I even came second in a lifting competition. My legs were pretty strong back in the day. Now I'm trying to do light lifting - but I say trying because I have barely hit the gym this year.

Anyways, welcome and hope to see you posting!

Yah, the diet part of bodybuilding is interesting because you have to flirt around with a few until you find the one that works best for you.

However, the diet can make or break you on stage which I'm sur eyou know.

Welcome to the team!

I'm just now on my way to my first competition (natural figure) this July 2007. I had a little trouble with a recent diet plan that I got from an online trainer who is a female body builder. The plan was so strict it caused me to binge for a week and ruin 3 full hard weeks of results.

I'm back to eating clean again and following a meal plan I got from the Glutes issue in Oxygen Magazine (My all time favorite mag!)It's similar to the trainer plan but has more fruit, variety and falvor.

Nice to have another bodybuilder around.

Sorry Everyone,

I did not introduce myself.

I live in Dallas, Texas and I used to do the competitive natuaral(no steroids) body building. Well after my last competition I began to eat and drink foods that I really missed out on...(hamburgers, fries, pizza etc....)

I started at 205 pounds after returning from a carribean cruise. I saw some of the pictures of the vacation and immediately went on my body building diet. The only problem is this diet is just for short periods of time (very strict and lacking some essentials). I quickly went to 198. I joined spark around that time and began to evaluate where my calories were coming from and realized that gatorade and juice were killing my reduction results. I replaced these two with water and quickly (two months) went to 170 (goal). I am now at 166 and realy attempting find my comfortable weight. I think it is 166 to 168. I really dont like to go below 166. I have started my parents on Spark People also. They are diabetic, so we have input their Doctors recommedned diet into the system (slight modifications).

Anyway, this has been my experience with spark. I burn between 5200 and 6500 calories per week.

Activities: weight training, running, biking (stationary), basketball, salsa, cha-cha, performing (salsa mainly)

Training: Teach Salsa and Personal Train

That's me
