Moving house I found a scrapbook I was given for my 30th. Had some real blast from the past photos in including a couple of early BBing type pictures.
The first ones are from 1993, I was a first year varsity student (read pisshead!) but trained solidly and had been for 3 years or so. Weighed about 75-80kg at, and I'm guessing, 16% BF??? (Well I had ribs if nothing else! ).
The next two are from 2000, when I was about 8 weeks out from a show and decided to enter "The Body of the Bay" pub comp! I had dieted down from 100kg and was weighing around 90-92kg in the photo's (and eventually hit stage at 88kg then 85kg Nationals), unsure of BF, but somewhere in the 6-8% mark I assume??
I put these up as a reminder that even the most ungifted kid (aka me!) can make reasonable progress with dedication and persistence. Also I'll be hitting stage again in 2012, this time dieting down from 120ish at a similar BF as when I was 100kg in 2000. Will be interesting to add the next photo in 2012 and see what 12 years of dedication can achieve.
