Almost There

Well, I think I’m almost there, weight loss wise.  I can pretty much say that this is what I’m going to look like now.  There are still a couple of pounds to lose but not much is going to change visually.

In some ways it’s been a lifelong journey and in other ways the last 7 months have gone by so quickly that it feels like I’ve just blinked and arrived where I am today.

I’ve updated the Journey in Pictures (note the new hair color!) but I thought I would also put up a side by side by side by side comparison from the last 7 months.  Starting at just shy of 250 pounds and today being at 175.

    Thanks you guys! I really, REALLY appreciate all the nice comments!

    About the jeans: These are not the original jeans that I bought when my friend decided my jeans sucked. These are already the next pair down. And they will just have to do until May when I go to Seattle to go shopping! I agree that they are a little big….but since they fit in the legs and the rear I’m taking them to my super tailor to get them taken in. It’s costing me a goddamn fortune to keep spending $80 on a pair of jeans and then only wearing them for a month!

    Totally worth every penny – gotta do that hot bod justice. And I know a thing or two about justice.

    Lookin’ smokin hot, radiant, healthy and fit, dude. AND your post made me drag my ass away from a battlestar gallactica marathon and go for a run. Extra kudos for being inspiring as hell!

    You do look absolutely great! Boy, what a difference. You’re right. When you are looking forward at how long you have to go, it seems like forever. When you’re looking back, it seems like time just flies. It would be a lot easier if it looked the same from both ends (fast) LOL.
