    I have been at 310lbs and am currently around 272. My goal by Christmas break is 250. My ultimate goal is to be around 220 which I hope to be by summertime. I have never lifted my shirt in public, even in front of my best buddies. Going wakeboarding, swimming, etc I have always worn a shirt even until this day.

    I have never snapped any pictures from before so I decided I will start now. So this is me about 10 minutes after waking up :) at 6'4'' 272ish with about ~1.5 months on/off working out. I have not worked out in about a week and a half.

    I know you guys do not like the whole bulk cutting down thing but I think I am doing ok. I am trying everything of reps of 15, and on a lets try to eat good diet. I bike to school, gym, and back. That is all the cardio I have been doing but will start to do more cardio about 30min after weights. I only lift weights 3 times a week as I just started and am pretty sore afterwards for a couple days. When my body gets used to it I plan to up it to 5 times a week. Anyways onto pics. Most are my calves as that is the only thing I have muscle in.

    Then my calves :) I guess they got big supporting my real heavy body:

    Now onto a question about the calves. Is there a way to make them stronger without making them bigger? I think they are big enough but I still want them to be stronger. Thanks guys.

    Your calves aren't that big for someone your size. Get over yourself.

    Bad news. You lose weight, they will shrink. I'm down a half inch so far :wtc:



    They don't look bad though :)

    Actually I will be glad when they shrink. I tend to think they look way too big, hence why I only wanted them to become stronger. Yet at the same time they are the only muscle I like to show because it is all I have.

    I dont really know how to express the look I want, but big calves are not part of it.
