Before and During

Two years between the two pictures. On the left, I was a year into recovering from a five year long binge eating disorder. I ate everything not nailed down and got to 255lbs. The one on the right was taken today at around 205 and is the result of an ovo-lacto vegetarian lifestyle. Can't wait to see where being a full on vegan will take me.

I guess you could say I went from an infantry "tank" to a cruiser "tank."

Woah!! Massive weight loss dude, really impressive! You should start a training journal on the forum, I would follow your journey for sure :)

Thanks for the kind words. I've been thinking about doing a journal, I just have to organize my training in between work and family life. Right now I'm just being active but nothing structured yet. I'm getting there though. :)

Wanted to add these ones too. In the side pictures, on the left one I actually was sucking my gut in and at the time thought I looked good lol. In the back pictures, that left one is pretty much just well formed fat. I thought I had some developed lats lol. Feeling much better with how I look in pictures nowadays. My bench press PR is 155lbs and my deadlift PR is 180. I don't train consistently yet but did those lifts just to see where I was at. When I was bigger, my press PR was 135 and my deadlift PR was 165, so improvement is improvement. I don't train squats because my lower back and knees are shot to hell from childhood. (I have some wheels though)

Side note, it's so awesome to see the size difference in my underwear. I was a 2XL, now I'm a large.

Thank you! My muscles are like a magic act, I can feel them but I can't completely see them yet lol.

The thinnest Ive been at the height I am at was 175lbs, and that was during high school graduation. I wasn't "allowed" to lift (parental issue), so I was soft bodied, but still broad and strong given my short stature. So I'm thinking 175lbs would be a decent goal weight for me, just with the muscle added on. Only thirty pounds away. I don't own a scale anymore, I find that I actually do better without one because I tend to obsess over it without doing anything about it. I'll just train until my pants keep falling off and when I'm at the pants size I was during graduation, I'll weigh myself lol.

Thank you guys for the encouragement. I'll be posting pictures a little further down the road once I get net up and running. Training's going well though! Best shape I've been in a decade.

I do lots of fruit for breakfast/lunch. Then I do 1 cup quinoa with cumin and whatever spices/stuff I want in it, maybe some nutritional yeast. For salads I do any greens, any veggies, and maybe some legumes or nuts/seeds. Lately I have been experimenting with tofu. Sometimes I'll do oats as well, or maybe some pasta. Just what I do though.

Already posted this in my journal on here but wanted to put it in this thread for comparison.

255lbs vs 193lbs.
