    From Flab to fab! Ok, that was cheesy...


    Well, I went overboard with the weightloss so I could get as low as possible so all the loose skin would tighten up, but I did it! Hardest accomplishment ever.... without a doubt. No staying in shape and health consumes me! Time to pack on that muscle I lost now!

    Damn. Good for you. What was the time frame between the two pictures and how much weight did you lose between that time?

    Time frame was about 2 years total. 100 lbs total as well.

    The loose skin is finally starting to tighten up now, but you truly do need to get way down there for it start really happening. I'm still pretty bashful about showing myself with my shirt off, etc... of course, the 13 inch long stretch marks don't help. I'm hoping I won't need surgery to get rid of the loose skin, but I'm going to give it some time to see.

    Went from a 42 inch waist to a 30 Let me tell you, it changes you. I think differently, act differently, and I'm SO much happier. I was in a state of depression because I hated myself so much. I thought about suicide, etc. Now I love to go and have fun and I'm proud of who I am. I'm getting into personal training/or that field and I really want to help people.

    That's great man, you look good.... Once you start working out, don't be afraid to eat, eat and eat(clean that is).... I wasn't as big as you were but I also lost a lot of body fat before I started pumping iron. Wait till you see how much muscle mass you can put on in your first year or two.... Stick to it and you will be very, very happy!

    Edit: If that's your goal that is?

    That is an amazing transformation. I think it speaks volumes of your character, that instead of just being depressed you went out and changed your life and reached a goal. You are the man.

    Thanks you all so much! I really hope I can help others do it too. I want others to see and feel how I do now and experience how truly good it feels to be healthy and energetic. It's good that people notice and congratulate me... without people being supportive, I never would have gotten to where I am now. I can tell you this, I'll never go back... period.

    I look around our selfish, american society and everybody is looking for a quick answer because almost everyone is overweight. There isn't one. The answer is hard work, dedication, and determination. Sure, supplements help, bu they can't take the place of will power.

    IF you dont mind I am going to copy and paste this into the thread Beelz started about AAS use. Very relative to the subject.

    Great job.....I lost 45 pounds in 6 months last year after I decided to get my act together and felt amazing doing it. I can't imagine more than doubling that as you did. CONGRATULATIONS.

    Thanks G, means a lot. I know I lost some muscle, but you know what, so what? I mentally needed to get to that thin point as fast as possible. Adding muscle, now that's the easy part... sorta

    Man, you've done a great job. I have also went through this process (went from 305 to 185 lbs.), and you do lose some muscle but the feeling is well worth it. After going through your transformation putting on muscle will seem easy to that. Good luck and keep up the great work.

    Thanks man! How'd the lose skin tighten up for ya? Mine's just now coming together. I held SO much of my weight around my stomach. I fear I'll need to get some of it cut off unfortunately, but time will tell. So expensive too.......
