UNYR2 Half Way Body Shot Comparisons

When you are gaining weight you look at yourself and you see a slow change if a change at all.  You start getting a little bit bigger and your scale looks a little sadder but you don't really feel that you are changing that much.  When I got to 244 I knew I looked different but somewhere in my head I was still denying that I had gained so much weight.  I would look in the mirror, suck it in as much as I could, stand up tall, and make myself believe that it wasn't that bad.  I would stand on the scale and be like, well, at least I'm not xxx weight.  It happens to the best of us and I am going to try my best to not let it happen to me again.

I had looked at my before pictures by themselves and it was disgusting at best.  Then I took my half way shots and looked at them with my originals and disgusting got left in a distant second.  It was absurdly horrendous what I had done to my body.  It almost makes me a little sick.  The motivating part is that I can see a tremendous difference in how I look.  Granted, like most people, I wish the scale was showing a lower weight, but that aside, look at me!!!!  I feel more energized, though its hard to tell sometimes from working out so much, but I know that losing the weight has made me feel more alive.  I have made strength gains in the gym and obviously am dropping fat, which is hard to do at the same time.

Overall my body is shrinking not only on the scale but on the tape as well.  I have lost 1.5 in. from my neck, 5 in. from my chest, 6.5 in. from my waist, 4 in. from my hips, 1.25 in. from my upper arm, 1.5 in. from my upper leg, and .5 in. from my lower leg.  I have lost over 20 inches overall from my body. 

I am happy that we are only half way through this competition because it will give me the motivation that I am looking for to see this thing through to the end.
