A shallow milestone. But a milestone none the less.

Most of my life I fought with severe overweight. This wasnt only a danger to my health but also hurt my self esteem a lot.

 

This is me six years ago (302 lbs)

After months of working out, better food habits and replacing some things in my life, this is me now: Pics taken by me and friends at work, with the girl and other places. Actual weight, 188 lbs. Could not be happier.

btw, I should admit. Warwagon was my inspiration for the loss of weight.

 

Is there anyway to tag members?

According to my girl... and friends... and my sister... and my mother (O _o) I'm an odd but somewhat coherent mix between hipster-goth-cholo-rapper.

Thanks! I actually hate mirror shots, but the window had this amazing silver finish that looked really good with the magic hour. Could not resist.

Not necessarily a shallow milestone. You admit it was a health concern to you as well as an esteem issue.

 

And you did it the sensible only way: eating right and exercise. You didn't get suckered into buying ###### diet scams and idiotic exercise machines.

 

Good for you. :)

It's curious, you know? One starts with 'hate': "I hate this dude because he is doing what I want" "He makes it seem so effortless" etc.

 

Then the 'hate' (Envy, really) detonates something in you. I remember seeing your threads three or four times on this process and saying "That's my goal".

 

It was never hate, that detonation was something else. inspiration. A true inspiration.

 

Thanks, from all my heart.

Looking fly, lad. Good job. :)

 

Can you explain your tattoos to us? At least the visible ones? Just curious. If not, that is okay.

The stellated hexagon is my mother, born in the sixth month, the star of my life. The truncated dodecahedron is my grandfather, born in the 12th month, the most complex person I've ever know. Both of them are the most important people for me (I have several tats about them).

In my knuckles it reads "bluebird", Bukowski's last poem (My favorite poet and contemporary figure). In my right hand it reads "mother, Im trying" a promise to my mother. In the other it reads "to be harder, to not care, to be cool" a promise to myself. In the chest it reads CONTROL, the thing I always strive for.

 

There are several others. Thanks for asking :)
