Before, During…After is yet to come

I have been asked to be the member of the month at my gym. I was honored but a little nervous at having my photos on display for the world to see. 

The gym picks the member of the month based on commitment to working out and by the results that have been achieved. I have really ramped up my gym attendance during the past few months and the physical changes I have gone through since May are very noticeable. I told the manager that my pictures needed to be labeled before and during, since I am not finished yet.

I have avoided the camera for years, because I did not like how I looked. I had a very difficult time finding a before photo to use for the display. Most of the pictures that I am in feature me holding a child or hiding behind another person. The before picture is an old picture but it shows the weight I was at in May when I made the decision to change my life. The during picture shows a weight loss of 65 pounds.

The little boy in the before picture is Caleb my now 15 year old son. I do seem to be aging well since I still look about the same age in both pictures.


BEFORE- Heaviest Weight: 257                                          DURING- Current Weight: 192
