    OK - just wanted to share - my wife and I signed up for a personal trainer and have been working out 3 days a week. Here's my beginning picture from the end of April. [​IMG] Since then, I have lost 3 lbs of fat, gained 8 lbs of muscle and added 3/4" to each bicep. We have another two months of training to go, so I'll post additional pics. Bradford

    It looks to me like those shorts are a little too short, you may think about taking them to a reputable alterations tailor and having them taken out a 1/4 inch or so, also are they fused or canvassed? Have you washed them yet? and if so, what is the shrink like? Is the dye a true vegetable grey? The drape of the fabric suggests that they are made of double ply Super 100's cotton, is it italian?

    Those are democrat pants aren't they? What, do you HATE FREEDOM?..?.?.

    I totally think that someone with those shorts thinks that Pet Sounds is better than Sgt. Peppers. And I'd probably agree.

    Good luck with the training, don't forget to drink your own urine, magic alien water, wheatgrass juice, and absorb all your other nutrients from the air. If you take pictures of your stool, Marc and I can more properly evaluate and offer advice on ways to improve your results.

    Thanks for sharing....

    Did I miss anything?

    i want to say: good luck to you and your wife. strange but true - i had thoughts of doing exactly this same thing (posting a 'before' picture), just a couple days ago. i think it is eerie that you have actually gone and done it. i am too chicken, too afraid that my 'before' will just remain 'current' due to lack of motivation, and general flakiness. so again, i applaud you and congratulate you on your courage. although based on your description, i suppose you hedged your bets by waiting until you had seen some results...

    ROFL...

    Excellent Tokyo, Excellent.

    (One of those where the people around you ask whats so funny and there is no way in the world you can explain it to them in less than 2 days, and even then you run the risk of being commited)

    You forgot something about the dubious distinction of Cartier as a watchmaker.
