6'5" March '05 to July '05 I cut from 226 to 196. July'05 to December '05 I didn't work out and ate like shit and went back up to 204 lbs. I finished setting up my home gym on christmas and I'm set to start bulking. I'm almost finished with my second week now and I've gone from 204->206, and I'm probably going to be going a steady 2lbs/week from here on out. I don't know how long I'll be able to stand bulking because I hate feeling fat, but I'm going to stick with it anyway for as long as I can. Last year my goal was to be lean on July 4th, and I guess I'd like to shoot for that same deadline for this year. So if I want to be lean in 6 months, when should I start cutting?
