~42 lbs, before & after

Options
Hi all,

I never took an official before & after pic, I'm not big on having pics taken of me with my shirt off, let alone taking one myself :) but came across a pic taken right before i found the MFP app. I didn't realize how much extra chub I was carrying around, not only in my face/neck but my shoulders & chest. Just found it interesting to see the difference. I kind of wish I had taken official before & after pics now. let's see if this image tag works.

Take care
pete

    That's Awesome and you can use paint shop or a cheaper version if you want photo to look better. But you look fantastic!!

    Thanks - I wasnt really worried about the pic quality, they are very cropped and rotated a bit to get almost the same angle on them both for a better apples-to-apples comparison :)

    Thanks everyone - what I found interesting was how much weight was lost off my upper body. I've gone from a mens large shirt size, to a small. Also 36" waist down to 29". Couple more lbs to go :)

    Thanks - nothing special, opened two different pics, zoomed/cropped and rotated a bit to get them to almost the same angle, then pasted one right next to the other in ms paint, and saved it out :)
