Ok so I started working out 2 1/2 years ago roughly when I found this site and at the time took a picture in a white polo. Last night after a party my gf took a picture of me in the same photo so I figured I would use it as a comparison picture. I personally think the progress is O.K but I’m like everyone else who's not happy when they look in the mirror so here it goes.

The picture on the left is about 2 and 1/2 years ago, the picture on the right is last night. Ignore the poped collar as I was trying to look like a douche bag for this party.

it's roughly a 45 lb difference.

You did a good job on that and on the weight gain! Well done.

i think the most impressive thing is that you kept a white polo clean for 2 and a half years

Big difference! Doesnt look like much fat gain either. Did you cut at all during the 2.5 years?

Thanks alot man, it's really amazing what you can do with all the information that's available on this site.

THanks man! Only when my budget wouldn't allow me to eat food. I've stayed about the same bf % the entire time, it's been a slow the past couple years.

185 give or take at the same BF. Once i get there it will probably be higher.

I started at about 130, I'm currently around 173-175

Definite difference especially if you look at the shoulders

yes, its the same shirt alittle more than 2 years down the road.

lol yeah I hear you, the only reason i popped the collar was to be a dick. there was no one at this party i liked and was there because of my gf.

you look about 6"1' in the first picture, 5"7' in the second hah, thats the only draw back, i'm 5'9" 186, my best friend is 5'9" 145 and he looks a lot taller than me for some reason unless we're next to eachother. Other than that rambling you look 10x better, truly motivational. And it appears you are less hairy on your arms as well??

lol thanks man. i guess having bigger forearms makes it "seem" like there is less hair but I assure you it's all there still.
