Hi Sparkle Barbie!!
I'd love to be your buddy! I will be starting my first round soon. I just ordered from ADC not too long ago and mine should arrive within just a couple of days of my planned start date-Jan 1!! So excited to start, and I've been mentally preparing myself for it. I love this forum because there is so much information to take in. So many people with so many experiences, not to mention the moderators who are just fantastic. As far as the phases go, I've been researching all of them but I'm really going to bone up on each of them as they come. Right now I'm getting all of my P2 stuff together so I can hit the ground running. Have you read "Pounds and Inches"? That's the best place to start. Best of luck to you!!
