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."

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.

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.

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.

Hm. Ok. The only stretch marks I have really are real faded along my stomach. Anything else you see is actual scarring from surgeries, not stretch marks. But thanks for the info. Whatevers on my skin at this point in my life is just going to remain on my skin.
