The Post Yourself Without a Shirt Thread!

Inspired by the other guy's thread, I've also been watching my diet. Diet change alone I'm down to 238 after pushing 250 for the last 3 years. Boss is a runner so we talk exercise often. Lastnight he said, "'wow, you're dropping weight". Nice when others notice. Along with a few other riders that have said they can see it. Some say it's noticable in the face. I guess I had a fat face!

Only 12 or 13 lbs but I see I can really feel it in the pants and on the bike. When the weather and snow clear on the mtn roads, I'll hit them hard. I'm sure I'll drop a few more changing the ride habits too. Prepping for a big mtn ride in June. Hope to lose 18 more and be down to 220 by then.

So c'mon, post up for some motivation!

Negative comments also welcomed. Cause I'll be thinking of you while I'm kicking arse in the mountains!

238 lbs.

I would post, but I am afraid someone might be eating while reading this thread and they might be unable to keep the food down.

I was almost afraid to open the thread. Some of us wear shirts for a reason.

I think posting a picture of myself shirtless would violate some kind of rules of decency on this forum and more importantly I really just don't want to, but thanks.

I have scars on my abdomen from numerous surgeries, and scars beneath my ex-man-boobs from plastic surgery that look a bit "odd" to say the least.

Nobody's gonna see pics of me naked anytime soon

Swimming at a public pool every morning has pretty much killed any self consciousness I might have had.




I got room for an extra 130lbs of gravity muscle in that skin, just in case.
