Day 22: Weight Gain Through Years

Weight was never a problem for me through my teenage years and through my early 20's.  I was that dude who could eat whatever he wanted and not put on a  pound...then I graduated college and got a desk job.  It wasn't so bad at first, I remained at around 140 pounds with only minor fluctuations.  Then slowly I started putting on some weight:

2008: 145
2009: 160
2010: 170
2011: 187

Almost 45 pounds in about 3 years!!!!   I never really cared, I thought I looked okay (at least okay enough to have a girl want to marry me).  Then people started making comments and I felt like butt.  In softball I couldn't stretch a single into a double anymore, going for short jogs had me grasping for air.

Fast forward to present day.  Today's workout had me finding some one rep max's for a few lifts and then running three 800m times runs.  I did not feel like death, I actually felt really good after the runs.  But what I really wanted to show you all is the before and after photos of myself.  I am by no means cut, but there has been some improvements.  Try to keep the laughter to a minimum for now.

I am not flexing in the second, or bloating myself in the first.
