Kaut stuff  3 6/5/17


I am currently in the midst of a a friendly bet with two of my homies. I am attempting to cut weight down to 155# (20 lbs total) and hold that weight before my friend cuts to 195# (20 lbs total) and holds that weight. 

Today is 7/18/17….. yesterday 7/17/17 I reached 150lbs bodyweight. A week or two ago, I had reached 155# and thought I had won. But then I looked at the initial photo at it said 170#. So, just in case, I dropped 5 more lbs. photos to come….
