Lunchtime Weight Loss


The Warlock here, with a lunchtime post about losing weight.  I mentioned that I've been working on dropping some pounds a bit earlier and threatened pictures of me in my skivvies.  

Actually, that's an idle threat.  The pictures will be of me in my running shorts but shirtless.  I'm not entirely sure how that's different than skivvies, coverage-wise, but it's all I've got.

Thankfully, y'all are spared until I get done with the diet.  I'm only posting an update today.  

Loss to date:  41 pounds.  

To go:  24, give or take.  

Before and after pics - face only:



I swear that the top one was the "before" picture.  In fact, it was well before.  Like almost a full year before (although it was at the same weight I was when I started losing in January).  

I'm quite proud about the re-emergence of my neck.  Also of note, my knees feel awesome now.

While this has been the culinary equivalent of going cold-turkey after a two-pack-a-day habit, it's been worth it.  Although the first month was rough.

You look awesome, but why didn't you smile in your after shot? That's how they do it on the Jenny Craig commercials.

Because it's not a full after picture. Fear not. I will manscape, go tanning, and smile for the final shot.

I think his eyes are smiling.
