Before is me at about 260. It was shortly after my workplace went fully remote and because there was no pressure to present myself professionally, I dyed my hair blue (seen here fading to green) and grew a sweet mustache.
I started my new lifestyle on June 10th. This more recent photo is me near 205. I am currently at my target weight of 200, which makes me categorically not obese and lighter then I have been since before high school graduation.
Special thanks to my wife and kids for taking candid photos at comparable angles.

We eventually got me up to 145, a new (and unintentional) PR. She’s a great trainer, but math, not her strong point, lol.39
snaileatsplants Posts: 20 MemberThis wasn’t a triumph of willpower. I always had that. It was, instead, a triumph over lifelong medical discrimination and stigma, of being repeatedly disbelieved about my healthy lifestyle because of stereotypes about bodies like mine. Mostly, it was the result of finding a doctor who finally listened and trusted me enough to have a specialist run tests to discover the cause so I could take a targeted approach to healing.
