The middle one is May 2012, I weighed 195 and had recently done my first meet, so I was squatting 300, benching 240, and deadlifting 335.
The one on the left is yesterday. May 2013. I weighed 204, I can squat around 385, bench around 285, and deadlift around 390 or so.
So, in two years and I gained less than 20 pounds, but I'm obviously bigger even without flexing all that much, and I added about 430ish pounds to my total.
(That double chin is the way I have my chin tucked!! I am a little fatter, but not that much!
If I can do it, you can too kids! You can too as BBOD would say.
