315 lbs of horrible vegan eating habits consisting of chips, oreos, and white pasta with a side of laziness.

Thank you for posting this and continuing to inspire me! Especially the times when I think about how it would feel so good for the moment to go back to my old ways!

I had gotten down to 205 about a year and half to two years ago but that was pretty much skinny fat. I rode my road bike a lot and did some circuit training. So I am around the same weight but a much different physique. I fluctuated mostly between 210-235 for that time frame. Now I want to get to 190 with a low body fat.

Thanks everyone. Obviously I have issues with my stomach still. It seems its the only place with any real fat stores left. It sucks and I think its super unattractive. Hopefully it goes completely away.

Very awesome man.

Stomach wise, unfortunately I'm guessing you spent a lot of time carry weight around (like myself) so that area will always be a pain to get right. It's where guys store most fat (when overweight) so the skin is going to become lose when you strip weight. I had the exact same issue, has helped becoming more bulky in a muscular sense :)

Be patient

You have some good ink too. Is that a peacock? Tats look best on muscles, I'm trying to build my arms and legs a little so mine look even better. Props on the amazing transformation man!
