Hello. I had posted once before the before and after pictures but the website hiccuped and lost it. Which was fortuitous because i did not stick to my plan.
At my heaviest i was around 255-275lbs depending on who you talk to. I maintain that i was at least 255. I do not have many photos from this time but ill look through my records to find some and scan the pictures and update this post.
This is when i was around 210-220
i just wanted to show everyone how i started out:
For my new pictures of how i look check out page 3.
Dancing at a rave.
when i first became vegan i was roughly 195
(while my neck and face were trim i was still fat in the lower regions.) I had some decent shoulder musculature but that was it.
This picture was after i had been vegan for about three years. I was at around 180-185
To me this was my perfect weight as far as frame goes. I had muscle on my chest as well.
For one reason or another i obtained an eating disorder and dropped eventually down to 145lbs at the thinnest:
You can only tell im that thin from my face.
Anywho i got over that started eating normally, but the damage had been done i had atrophied my muscles and gained fat from eating normally.
I am starting at the bottom rung here and love that i can say i eventually built my entire physique as a vegan.
here i am today at 161lbs after working out bodyweight excercises for two weeks.
before work out:
and here are a few lucky camera shots that make me somehow look large:
One of the things i noticed is that my extra skin issue is actually exasterbated by working out, at least so far. Perhaps i have to much fat in my diet or perhaps the muscle i am gaining under the small amount of fat i have is pushing the skin out:
here is me normally but here is me when i stand or bend over.
But i am trying and I know that baring surgery I can only do my best. My goal is to get up to 180lbs again but to do so very slowly.

Thank you all for motivating me to make a difference in my life and to keep at it in a healthy manner.
