Here we go again!

Well I noticed nothing has been posted so far and I figured it was time to start. It has been 5 months since the first El Cubano Gordo competition has finished and we are back again, this time with a twist. I love the idea. After a rough holiday season I went from being 190 lbs in November to 200 lbs to start this competition. So ladies and gents I am ready to go at this again. Please understand and my closest friends know me best that I take this seriously and I do intend to do extremely well. I feel like "Rocky" and I am up for the challenge. So good luck to everyone and to all the new people doing it, work hard because that is great motivation to everyone else. The first El Cubano Gordo is out for now.
