I am letting it all out since I know so many of you know where I am coming from. In January, I was a fat 221 lbs at 5'7". I had enough of that! I started a diet and exercise program. My goal was to get to 174 pounds by August (I am re-entering the military and that is my weight limit for my height). My before pictures are both of me in January and the after are from this week. Although I am by no means ripped yet, I have definitely stripped some of the blubber! I am now at 188 pounds and have re-started my weight lifting program. I have 14 lbs. to go for my military enlistment and I plan to be there by the end of May. I just thought I would share this with some people that can appreciate how hard it is to accomplish and more importantly, how good it feels to accomplish it. I think you can figure out which ones are the before and after!
