Here are my updated before and after pictures. The pictures on the left (your left) are from February 8, 2007. The pictures on the right (your right) are from June 6th, 2007. Almost exactly four months to the day from when I began this weight loss journey.
The guy above (the old me) had a 42 inch waist. Now, as of today, my waist is 34 1/2 inches.
See all those rolls of fat on the left hand picture? That guy weighed 206 lbs . Think of how big my fat cell’s must have been. Now, I weigh 169.2 lbs- less than 10 lbs from my goal weight. What a difference losing 36+ lbs of fat can make from all perspectives.
The old me had a gut that hung over my belt. That 42 inch waist was a miserable traveling companion. It popped numerous button from the front of some great khaki pants. Now, when I put on my fat clothes they hang on me like a trash bag, and my old, old, old clothes fit perfectly.
The guy above is a much healthier, happier, energetic man. Praise the Lord for positive change and for the strength to endure.
