Didn't realize, until I was looking at photos…

How much my face has changed since I lost 30 pounds.

June 2001, about 223 pounds

  1. Congratulations!

    ….but *DITTO* what said. You look nice in both…the change is evident though in the second one. For many it is so hard to lose weight. Are you on a fitness regime? If so, it is showing…keep up the good work! 🙂

  2. T’anks! I was looking for a more recent “before” shot, because it eventually got even more so… but that sure shows the difference.

  3. Well, thanks! Yup, that’s me. I think I looked OK, even with the extra pudge, but was really amazed at the difference it makes. Ideally, I’d like to give up about another 10 – 15 pounds, but we’ll see how that goes.

  4. Re: Congratulations!

    Low carbohydrate diet. It’s really worked well for me. I have been working at getting back into yoga and gymming, but it keeps getting axed because it runs afoul of my schedule, other stuff gets in the way, etc. What I *really* need, is to get back to DANCING… I used to dance three to four nights a week, which kept me in much better shape.

  5. Jeebus you’re handsome! Great job on the weight loss!

    A friend of mine recently saw me and said “you’re so skinny! I need to feed you!”.

  6. hee hee… thanks!

    My partner, Chris, recently visited his parents, and had some family members give him the “you’re too skinny!” He’s not, but they just haven’t seen him since we’ve been dieting. He’s lost like 25 pounds, and is pretty much at his goal weight.

  7. Well actually you are quite the drop dead in both.. but unlike most people on here I get to get at least four hugs from your sexy self each month.. 🙂 Love ya!!!

  8. I’ll echo the rest of ’em, you look yummy in both incarnations. *slurp* Low-carb is where it’s at!…at least for my body chemistry, and apparently yours. Once I’m employed and can afford lots ‘n lots of dead cow again, I plan on re-introducing myself to Dr. Atkins. 😉

  9. Isn’t it amazing how much your face shows weight loss? I had someone at the DMV comment on my weight loss when she looked at my old ID picture compared to my face when I went in for a renewal.

  10. Thanks!

    It sure worked for me. I’m gluten-intolerant, so the low-carb stuff fits a lot of my “OK to eat” lists anyway… nothing breaded, nothing in a floured sauce, no pasta, no beer…

  11. Thanks!

    That’s one of the things I really noticed in the heavy picture – how much it squeezed up my eyes. I’ve always had deep-set eyes, but they looked kinda “piggy” when I got heavy.

  12. My last ID picture change, I went from “clean-shaved withhair to there” to “buzz cut and a beard”… they really did check to make sure I was who I was representing myself to be

  13. Oddly enough my coworkers haven’t said anything. My fellow student assistants have noticed it, one says she sees it in my face.

    The odd thing to me is how much my musculature is beginning to show on my arms. I don’t have much fat over them, so on my wrists when i flex the skin sinks down, following the tendons. I’m also beginning to see the smaller veins in my forearm stand out.

    I SO cannot wait until i reach my goal.

    One other thing… I notice how much MORE boyish i seem to look now as i’ve lost weight than when i had it rounding out my face. I’m beginning to look like a twink! (which i SO am not!)

  14. beginning to look like a twink! (which i SO am not!)

    I think I’ve only seen one picture of you, your icon… looks good, but hard to tell with the icon sized shots. The tattoo is really striking.

    I’ve noticed the musculature in my arms a little more, too… especially when I see it move. I just need to get back to dancing and working out, and I’m sure it’ll really start to show.

  15. Take a look at my most recent entry. I’ve got a series of headshots like your picture series here.

    Here’s what invalidates me for the “Twink” category: I have too many big tattoos! Twinks get skinny barbed wire armbands or little spot pieces of they get tattoos :).

    Thanks about the tattoo! I need some touchups on it though (the part filled in last had a lot of little scars).

  16. Re: Back off ya all 🙂

    Hee…. maybe I oughtta post your recent photos for everybody so they can see why I’m a good boy? Of course, you didn’t photo my favorite view…

  17. Re: Back off ya all 🙂

    Most of the stuff that comes to mind, would be much more fun with the real thing.

    But I’ll definitely keep them on file.

    =)
