    Title says it all really. If you have a photo where you look particularly big or particularly lean, or you've made a lot of progress.. post it up and tell us about it!

    Here is mine - my calves. I think I've got quite good calf genetics overall. They seem to grow without me doing much to them at all. But for the last 3 months I've been absolutely blasting them twice a week and I've gained over 1.5inches!

    I look at the picture on the left every day when I don't feel motivated to go to the gym / do cardio.

    Yeah.. looking MUCH better.

    No offence, but in the pic on the left, most people (i.e. people who don't go to the gym themselves) would think you're a normal chubby guy. In the pic on the right you look like you lift weights... a lot of weight, lol

    And IMO you actually look BIGGER in the pic on the right.. amazing what the waist:shoulder ratio does.

    This is a horrible picture because I spent this entire week drinking and eating whatever I wanted and was bloated up as fuck. But whatever, I have gotten bigger and have continued to lean up.

    I believe everyone should keep their starting pictures right on their desktop for when their motivation is starting to slip.

    I don't know how tall you are, so it's hard to guess how much muscle you added, but I'm guessing at least 20lb of LBM.

    I'm 6ft.

    The thing is, I made the most progress in like the first 1.5 years of weight training. I went from 145 to 184 @ 14.2% to 162 @ 7.5% then I maintained for a year. Currently, I'm 172 @ 9.9%.

    Looking back on it, I feel like I wasted a year of my time just maintaining. Who knows what I'd look like now if I had went ahead and continued to add weight, but what are you going to do. It's all a head-fuck man.
