Before and After: My Weight Loss Progress

A friend was over here this past weekend. At one point we were looking through pictures, when we stumbled upon a few which made us both take notice. They’re pictures of me from about 5 years ago and pictures of me now. I know I talk a lot about my weight loss, but this made it all that much more real.

Note that I had lost just under 90lbs when the “Now” set of pictures were taken. I have since lost 10lbs more. Still, they’re accurate enough. My friend and I both said the same thing: Wow.

  1. Too bad nature won’t let us keep the weight we lose… you could’ve made millions in Miami, selling it for lip and breast implants!

    Well. You can still start a gym. I can imagine the TV commercial: *in a dark, manly voice* “Are you overweight? Get stuck going through double swing-doors? Well my lovely McDonalds’ offspring: Look no further chubby buddy—I can turn that flubber into a lean ab-machine that’s so mean it’s illegal in 47 states! Call 1-800-NORB-ABS. NOW!”

    But all jokes aside; good job man—must’ve taken serious effort and determination. Hats off to you my friend.

  2. Thanks, Hrafn. Given that you were the friend talked about here, I guess you got a sneak peek ;-). The idea of starting a gym isn’t a bad one. But I have to look a bit more muscly before doing that, though. Still a bit too flabby, as you no doubt saw, unlike all you uber-sexy Icelanders, all of who might as well be models in a Neman Marcus catalog. Wearing cowboy hats, of course.
