    Holy crap. I wish I looked half as good as you did in your "fat" pic. LOL!

    I'm with the OP on this one. I can't stomach taking a picture of myself shirtless right now. icon_sad.gif

    Ok.. we hear that you're not happy with the way you look
    but to change that fact you have to live it...you have to own it and you have to be able not to deny how you look to the world
    without accepting yourself for who you are right now
    you're going to find it difficult to change into something else

    Dude, it's okay. For most of us, in order to truly accept ourselves for what we are and make a conscious decision to make a change, we have to see ourselves through the uncaring and cold eye of the camera lens. Seriously and critically seeing yourself will give you that much more determination and ambition to make the change for the better, and for yourself, not for any man.

    Sure, I'll go next, what the heck, right?

    So yeah, I was about 20 pounds heavier here. I look particularly scary because it's like 6:30 am (soooo not a morning person). And that weird look on my face? I was mid yelling at boyfriend about something or other and he snapped the photo.

    And MuchMore - The before is amazing enough, but the after is just PHENOMEONAL. Very inspiring.

    What I would like to see you post as your main pic is a smiling pic of you. You can make that change instantly.

    Coming at it from the other end--having needed to gain weight, not lose it--I really wish I had kept a shirtless picture of me in the before mode. when you make the changes, you'll really wish you had the old image. You don't need to post it now, but you'll want to save it.

    I had to hit rock bottom aka 351 pounds and a waist size of 54 inches before I finally got myself together. After 4 years I am still working on it and every day is a challenge, but its a fight worth fighting. I feel younger, better, and healthier!

    Best of luck to you!

    I put two in mine. I was never huge, but I need a reminder of how I just didn't care at one time and if it inspires others, great. icon_biggrin.gif

    Wow, that is amazing. Looking at your current pictures I never would have guessed what you looked like before. That's inspiring.

    Damn, some of you guys are really making it harder for the fatties to continue whining in the future. And I mean "fattie" in the best way possible: I enjoy fatmen as they are. Dudn't mean I've lost all grip on reality : fat is not supposed to be permanent, we are no longer a nomadic species.

    Congratulations to those guys who have successfully lost weight...

    I hope that NoNameGuy will take inspiration from those who shared their photos. Put your mind into it NoNameGuy and you will succeed.
    My neighbour has lost 50 pounds in the past year. She looks great! She keeps a before photo on her fridge.
    My Assistant at work went from 360 pounds to 260 pounds, it took him over two years.
    Another friend recently emailed a photo of himself with his shirt off, he was proud of losing 15 pounds and wanted to share. (I had never see him shirtless before)

    A work colleague recently passed away in July, from causes related to her obesity. (Kidney failure, Liver failure, and Heart failure).
    I have told a number of people in the last month, in hopes that someone will take inspiration from her story and start making a changes in their life.
