    In honor of me breaking the 300 lb barrier and losing 78 lbs so far, here is a comparison of me from Dec 2004, close to my heaviest weight, and about 20 mins ago.

    I dont think I exhibit the extreme weight loss that some of you have experiance (great job to everyone who has lost any weight while enjoying cyclying). I dont have any 'real' full shots of my self but i think the two i'm posting show the weight lost. The first picture (me and my brother) was taken durring winter of 2006 I was at 6'3" 240, the second picture was taken fall of 06 6'3" still but at about 210 and with a hair cut!

    I see you ditched the face fur, Brian. I did as well. A lot of fat guys do that when they lose weight. Except Tom Stormcrowe, of course.

    Yea, I had at least a mustache since I was 16 or 17 and my kids never saw me without facial hair. Wife has only seen it one time in 24 year of knowing me. It completely grey and but mainly got rid of it because it was causing me issues with my CPAP mask. I truely hate shaving and would grow it back in a haeart beat if I could.

    I hate shaving too. However, I like looking 20 years younger. So out comes the razor.

    Yea, that is an added benefit isn't it. I know the wife likes it better.

    I shave, and also hate it. But I do it so I can look younger.

    I just shaved in November....1972! Brian if you can use the cpap mask that uses the nose pillows then a beard is no longer an issue.

    My beards usually last until my wife complains that kissing tickles to much, out comes the razor.

    Right now though, I am working the night shift at work, since the only folks who see me some days are the other bums on the night shift, I only need to shave if I'm going out in public, last week I shaved Monday, then didn't shave again until Sunday..... Really cuts down on the cost of razors, I went from a blade a week, to a blade a month.

    I believe that Nordic Skiing is better than biking as well, not sure about it compared with swimming.

    That's amazing Tom. I know many people have said this before, but you really are an inspiration. I am currently at 261 and I just started keeping track of my weight loss. I plan on taking pictures every day so I can really see the changes. I had actually never seen a picture of myself recently with my shirt off and I was certainly surprised how much I had let myself go. Hopefully I will be another one of your success stories.

    Joe, definitely keep a daily record and then stack them into an animated .GIF. wear the same shirt for them and you can later play the GIF and watch the weight melt off and the shirt get loose!

    If you want it, you will make it happen. Meanwhile.....

    Me at 360, after losing 25 pounds.


    And now, or more precisely three weeks ago, me at 248. No, that's not my bike in the photo.

    Yeah, but it's still bad in the 'after' photo. Staring down at the bike wasn't a good idea.

    OK, here's the frontal of me at 360. Note the "s" like curve of the spine.



    And the current, taken by Neil Fein a month ago. I asked Neil if my shoulders were straight before he took the photograph. Incidentally, anyone who has seen the film "Rocky" will recognize the steps.
