Thanks Cory! I am trying.
Although, funny note on the bulk, I realized I have 26 less days than I thought!
Someone needs to teach me math, I realized when I did all of my calculations and wrote my "Training Manifesto" I said I would diet for 17 weeks from January 1 to April 1....notice anything wrong? I include the month of April in my 17 week total, problem is, as of April 1, it is only 13 weeks (roughly). Thus, I had to move the start date of my contest cut diet to December 5, 2011. Yes, right before the holidays I will start my contest diet. I will still enjoy some holiday food, because my "diet" will still be 4000 plus calories....there is room for a few cookies in there somewhere, lol!
138 - 26 = 112 days to get HUGE!
Goal is to make is to around 207. That is 13 more pounds, about 0.8 pounds per week. That would be the biggest I have ever been. Slightly shy of my 210 goal, but starting my diet is more important than getting big, I NEED to be lean to do well, even if that sacrifices some size.

Bodyweight average last week: 191.9
Bodyweight average this week: 194.0
This week was my fast week. I seem to alternate between gaining quick and gaining next to nothing.
I weighed in heavy, 195.5 the last 2 mornings which inflated my average. I think my legs seriously sucked up everything I ate and drank since the double session on Saturday and that is why I weighed in heavy. I am not complaining, my legs are swole in a good way right now.
