The pictures on the left were taken July 7th, one week after my last fight. The pictures on the right were taken this morning, August 4th. When I first took the pictures this morning, I wasn't satisfied. I felt like I should be leaner, more muscular, etc. etc. Then I compared them to a month ago, I felt so much better. My waist is tighter, I'm leaner all over, and even though four pounds doesn't sound like much for a month, I look smaller all over.
I'm not quite where I wanted to be two weeks out from my next fight (August 18th) but I'm happy that I have improved, because that's what I'm always striving for. :)
