My younger brother returned my camera last night, so I woke up early this morning to make the long-awaited progress photo. To ensure that this photo was taken exactly 10 pounds after the last one, I ate some cake and dropped some Jager bombs this weekend to get back up to 180. This had nothing to do with the ritualistic practice of buying kitchen utensils for my future sister-in-law or a night of debauchery with her bridesmaids. No, I did this for you so you know exactly what I look like at 180 and not 179. Those of you who do not have Flash installed in your browser can see the new picture on my images only progress page.
I’m wearing one of my new small t-shirts. When I was going through my files making this photo, I stumbled across an old PhotoShop image that estimated what I would look like when I was skinny. I can’t remember if I made this or if it was one Mark at CalorieLab made me. The timestamp says it was last modified on October 5, 2005, when I was weighing in at around 260 pounds. I compared it to the pictures I took this morning, and I look pretty much like the estimate projected. Except I have a perkier butt. (Thanks, Ana Caban!)
So yeah, I’m looking pretty awesome. I’m still going to go for the last 20 pounds though. The reasons why are fodder for a whole ‘nother entry.
