I never thought I would post one of these but I was looking at some pictures that were taken of me on the weekend and I could not help but compare them to photos from a year ago. I am honestly rather proud of myself and wanted to share my results so far. I say this is a "Before and Almost" there because I still have a long way to!

Face shot - The first photo was taken on the 28th of October 2011 exactly 1.5 months before I started my weight loss journey. The second one was taken on the weekend just gone, the 29th of September 2012, 9.5 months into what I have been calling "operation Superman".

Gym shots - The first photo may have been from 2010, I'm not exactly sure. The difference I saw to march motivated me to keep going to where I am now in the September 2012 shot... I can't wait for September 2013! wink

Stats:
Pre 2012: 140Kg, size 5XL shirt.
March 2012: 115Kg, size 2XL shirt.
September 2012: 100Kg, size large shirt.
September 2013: 85~90Kg, size large cape!

Feats:

Before: I Could hardly pick up my keys if I dropped them because of a chronic bad back.
Now: Every Wednesday night lift 120kg off the floor 60 times (6 sets of 10 reps dead lifts... not to mention; squats and leg press, I love my back and legs day!)

Before: I would get puffed out walking to the shops for lunch. (But 9 out of 10 times would drive any way)
Now: I can hike 50km only needing to stop to eat and change socks.

Thanks for reading! And thanks to everyone on MFP who has supported me this year. smile

There is more of my story in my profile if any one is interested. smile
