A shallow milestone. But a milestone none the less.

Here at the fat club, let me be the first to mourn the loss of a fellow brother in arms :cry:

You will be missed

 

Better yet, join us. Or join warwagon, I mean. I still would like to lose a little more.

Looking good dood. (Y) I applaud you in your achievement. Perhaps your story, or the combination of yours and Warwagon's will inspire someone else to change for the better.

 

Cheers!

His story alone did it for me. He's a great guy.

I would, but the thing is I'm dead sexeh, once you've had the fat, you can't go back

Another pic that a friend uploaded to facebook. This specially shows how much weight has been lost since lower angles always make us look fatter.

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 :)

See, now those are tattoos I can appreciate. Well thought out and with a purpose. Cool. :)

I've never understood tats that has no significative and everlasting meaning. I love tats, but I find those that are merely aesthetic quite tacky.

On one hand you make me jealous - you've achieved what I've been trying to achieve for the past four years.
On the other hand you're an inspiration for me to try harder. Here's hoping I'll be able to post a similar milestone thread within a year from now.

Congratulations!

If I could, anyone can. I'm the laziest person here. Hope to be reading about your milestone soon (Y)

Same here, really looked at myself recently having hit 42 and was thoroughly disgusted with what I let myself become, then posts like this reinforce that notion and add to the motivation to keep working on it !!!

As a fatboy who seems ruled by indulgence and apathy, I envy you.  You look a lot better for it, and I'm pretty sure you just extended your life by a decade so tht way it is certainly not shallow.

 

However...

 

That iHop photo is the coolest pic you've posted man!

Gz dude. I'm currently trying to lose some weight too; I weighed 14st on my birthday (12th Jan) and I've managed to lose 5lb's since then. Hopefully I continue to see the scales going down.

Good job man. (Y) For someone like me at 41, working from home and living in the center it's hard.. I also enjoy a beer and everything is within walking distance whenever I go out.

 

I did lose some weight over the last year though, as it was getting out of hand :p
