Success stories and/or pics

After all the working out I've done, I've decided that I'm going to redo my Portgas D. Ace costume for AAC. Mainly because I'm ashamed of how I looked when I went as him earlier this year, but I like how I look now, and feel ready to do it better this time. With that said I was wondering how many of you kind folk have reached or are close to reaching your ideal shape for a certain costume you wanna pull off, I'd love to hear about it or even see some pics ^_^

Kinda embarassing but o wells.

around June 2009 worst shape of my life, bad dieting, stressed out, and probably worst point of my life. approximate body fat 25% body fat @ 165 pounds







Sept 14 2009 better diet, worked out at home with 20 pound dumbbells push ups etc for 2 months. Joined YMCA gym around when the picture was taken. @ Approximately 155 pounds


Dec 19 2009 4 months hard hitting the gym, started on protein shakes, and jack3d pre-workout for energy. lifted every day when my muscles weren't overly sore, focused on form, minimal rest, better diet, NO RUNNING OF ANY TYPE. Just cardio with weights with minimal rest to keep my heart rate up =)




Then took 6months off cause I got lazy after 2month vacation to Vietnam, then 2months back on.

current


I just got my size back, although I look much fatter now =( gained a bit of thickness in my chest, a improved lat spread, and little more traps. Although I think I got little fatter =\ @ 165 pounds lookin for 5 more pounds then going on a cutting cycle (ACTUALLY GONNA HIT THE TREADMILL OMG)

What started as a 3 month goal became an obsession to me. This is the result of almost one years worth of training. I now am in the best shape of my life and I don't plan on stopping any time soon.

Ditto. Both of your before/after pics are very inspirational, granted I'll be starting a bit further behind than you two.

I'll be back here in a few months with whatever progress I make in that time. Won't work miracles, but some progress is better than no progress.

Im working on this right now actually. I started out in july at 290, by far the worst of my life. I started taking pics every two weeks since the end of july, and I'm currently down to 275. I'm making a sideshow for when I hit 235 again so I'll have a constant reminder of why to work out and to see the progress. I'll post when it happens

well I hope Jess doesn't get mad for posting her pics, but this was a girl who asked for some workout advice around late last year. I dunno if she's still an active poster or not, but personally I thought she looked pretty good already anyways she listened to a lot of our advice =)

Mainly active people around that time was me, Andy Lee, Dr.Pepper, and Eminai =)





personally I didn't think she had 20 pounds to lose, but she did it and looks amazing now, and she actually lifts weights =o

i'm only posting cause she had great results and no girls have yet to post any before or afters

Whoah super skinny. I can see the difference in that outfit. I don't think she needed to lose 20 either, but to each their own. I love the results though.

@ Benihime: In comparison to your avatar and the photo you posted, you can really see the difference.
