My Transform Pics -- July 2008 Updated Pics Added
Just getting started here, but since I'm finally able to turn my focus toward gaining muscle rather than losing fat, thought it best to get post where I am now, just a couple of weeks into my first clean bulk.
I had been overweight all my life. When it finally clicked with me how close to dying I was, I was 375 lbs@44% BF (maybe a little more). I've poured everything I could into changing my life, and so far so good. Now, I'm at 200 pounds, 12-14% BF, depending on the measurement type that's done, and I feel better than at any time in my life. Hopefully there will be some new muscle on these pics on a few months. I'd like to get to 220 @8%, but that will take at while.
Anyway, Before and After:

Jesus Christ my man, that's probably the most impressive transformation I've ever seen.
It's hard to believe how tight your skin is after that much weight loss; great job.

How long did the transformation take (from first pic to last)? And what sort of routine did you use primarily?
Congrats man, like kwyck said, that's probably the most impressive transformation I've ever seen. Keep up the good work

thans an excellent example of dedication.
You look great, actually you look way younger on the last pics that you did when you were overweight.
Best of luck

At first, I used a simple 3x per week total body all DB's that I could do at home (I was too embarrassed to go to a gym at my size). Cardio, I stationary biked, a LOT. I changed to a 4x per week upper/lower that I found on-line at the start of 2007. When I finally joined a gym, I changed to a 5x per week, once per week per group thing my trainer put me on. Currently, I do a 2-on, 1- off, another upper/lower split. I've got another 4 weeks of the current one before I need to change. With the exception of a few change up days, I've always gone heavy. (6-10 reps)
One of the guys at my current gym is trying to get me to start OVT. Don't know if I should or exactly what to do next.

Just goes to show with knowledge, time, dedication america can back down our obese %.
Amazing in every aspect. Congrats and welcome.

The only problem w/ those obesity stats is that its BMI based. Based off of BMI I'd say a huge portion of us on this forum are "obese".

Awesome job man. Do you have any loose skin around your lower abs at all? I came down about 100 lbs and ended up having some loose skin. I thought that my tranformation was something but I aint got S@^t on you!!!!! Good Work

Thank again guys.
I always thought that there was nothing I could do about being fat. Well, I may never reach the stage of Olympia or anything, but If I can do it, anyone can. All it takes is the will to change. Most of my fat friends just don't want to and have told me so.
Compared to most people in my position, I've been very lucky with it. Been for a surgery consult, and my doc says it is no more than a few pounds with that he'd have to remove, what he'd be looking at in a typical sized person's vanity tummy tuck. And if I can get to 10% BF or better before my surgery next summer, it could be even little less.

You look absolutely amazing the results are unreal.

Good God, lol. That should be on the cover of Muscletech...As in that is such a huge change that it is damn near unbelievable. that is something to be very proud of and inspiring to those of us who think we can't do it.

all those fat people who blame their genetics must hate you. you are walking proof that hard work and dedication actually work.

I have lost several friends who are fat, because they couldn't deal with it. The "You've changed too much" or "Can't you just be normal again ?" ones. I think I'm better off without them.
I've got the metabolism of an f***ing elephant. Honest to God I can slow gain on 3300 cals a day, being in the gym 2 hours a day. I can respect anyone out there who is trying to change, no matter what they look like now. If they are in they gym dedicated, and eating right, then whatever happens happens.
If you're a couch potato slug like I was stuffing you face at all hours and say you can't. Bullsh*t. I did it it, and if I can , anyone can. It may be easier for some than for others to put on muscle and lose fat, but that's life. I'd love to look like the trainer at my gym doing decline bench with 405 on the bar cranking out perfect rep after perfect rep. But he'd got 20 years of training under his belt that I don't. I'll probably not get even close to him, but it won't be for lack of trying.

You look amazing and your story is great.
I gotta ask though, when you finished cutting and started gaining mass, what was the lady attention like?
09-29-2007, 03:38 PM
Ma man, what you have done is amazing. I've shown this to a few friends and they are in awe. Awesome work!
