This will apply mostly to the fatter of us here. About 3-4 years ago, I was at my heaviest. FAT! I weighed about 215-220 lbs at a height of 5'5". It was not pretty and I still can't believe to this day I let myself get that way. I have old pictures of myself that I keep to remind me of what I used to be. Those pics keep me motivated to say the least.

One thing I have always said to myself is that I would never get that heavy again. Well, I failed miserably...sorta. I weigh very close to my heaviest but I don't look anywhere near what I did back then.

I'm posting pics of me then and now. Same weight I think (around 215-220).

Damn, that's a hell of a transformation, you look to have gained a lot of muscle. Nice work.

Here I is! Throw 15-20 more lbs of mass ( the good kind, not the jiggly kind... ) and its me, now!
Pic #1(before) was about 3-3.5 years ago, I think.
Pic #2(after) was a year ago.

Your not so damn shabby yourself, Max. Good gains. Your after pics dont do you justice, I think Ive seen some of your other pics youve posted (A leg shot, maybe?) and all your rants over squats made sense.

Do you look back and wonder what the hell you were thinking? Everyone says there was a skinny guy in me waiting to get out, hell- I ATE that guy. Everything is different, now.

Come on, ppl- I know theres some more AWESOME before and afters on this forum... Ive seen them! Get your post on!

That's my mom. Polio stunted her growth some from what I understand. She would have been short anyway. The girl in the second pic is my cousin. She's still the same height. Her sister is shorter than her. Their dad is in the second pic.

You look a lot taller than 5'5 in those shots. Incredible improvement, both of you. I was shocked when I saw your second one, king.

Hey Mex, that's not you in your avatar?

Yup, dats me. That was me..uhm lesse...I think last September. I think. It's either 1 or 2 years old. I know I took it in September but can't remember if it was 02 or 03. I'm thinking 03 cause I was more muscular.

i'm in the same boat as all of you.
5'7" 183, 22% fat then
5'7" 135, 8% fat now.
now i wanna bulk up but i'm scared of getting fat.
but I bet now that you guys are bigger again, you probably eat more than when you were fat??

First pic is freshman year (early-mid '03 I think). Second pic is spring break, '04.

270lbs -> 209 lbs, I think around 13% bodyfat

I have since bulked back up to 249 (~18% bodyfat) and recently started a mini-cut down to 239 before I start UD2 for shreddedness.

yea man its hard especially when u know how to make a sexy cream and butter sauce for ur chicken wiht moterella cheeze oh man..i recommend infusion flavors into your cookin instead of just leaving on teh fat for example turkey is very dry and many dont eat it becuase of that but if u create a honey teryaki glaze oh man i promise u that u will want to eat it :clap:

Awesome results all!! Always inspirational to see such transformations! Im the opposite starting at around 105-115lbs when I started training. The earliest posing pic I have is this one at 16 and maybe around 160lbs:


Around 160lbs. After 2 straight years of training. Lots of hours in the gym. Still wasnt eating near enough,but was racking many of the machines for reps. Power of the mind!!

http://www.elitefitness.com/gallery/data/500/49062revived.jpg

And this was my most recent, though I got slightly bigger at my peak:

Around 195lbs:

http://www.elitefitness.com/gallery/data/500/49062P1010099-med.JPG

Overall in the ten years Ive been training straight (still natural) Ive gained around 90-95lbs, almost doubling my starting body weight and benching 9X my original weight, which was struggling with the bar. KILL THAT ****!!
