Sold my ten gallon equipment and brew stand some time ago. Here's my new fancy setup.

1 pound is ~ 3500 calories, not 2000. For a 'reasonable' weight loss regime you should expect ~4-5 pounds per month loss.
Hey Ryan; welcome back! You know what I have if you want some.
Coming from a guy who has been lifting weights somewhat religiously since I was 18 (and younger if you count school athletics), I can tell you it can be done. But it is difficult to stay lean and drink regularly. The only success I ever had was when I abstained from drinking for the entire week-days and then drank moderately (usually) on the weekends. The type of beer we like is so full of calories that two beers a night even pushes close to or over 500 calories. Have a few more on the weekend and you are up over a thousand. The entire week can climb over 5000 calories for the entire week in carbs, which is not a recipe for maintaining a low body fat count. And it gets worse the older you get.
Don't want to be a downer but just thought I'd share my experience. And when I did have a six pack back in my twenties I didn't ever even give it a thought. Was just the way my body was. There is no way I could work hard enough (or cut my beer drinking back enough) to ever have a sixer again. But that's just me - good on you Ryan. Very impressive.
So what was your workout/diet regime? I have had close to zero luck losing weight (I need to get rid of about 70 pounds) with the one exception of my crazy college kid days where I was biking ±20 miles a day and eating only pasta and ben & jerry's. Got down to 190 then.
When you say you lost over 100 lbs. are you refering to your ex?
Got my scoresheets today. That was fast! True pros at the NHC! I couldn't quite break the 40 point barrier. It's a PITA. LOL!Actually, that would be "True pros at the regional organizers" where you entered. And yes, that is fast.
I'm not convinced that leaving the tubing attached is sure to keeps bacteria from developing.
