Here is a new Before After set which I took yesterday on Dec 12, 2012. I am posting this today because I had started on a Thursday (June 21, 2012) and today is 175 days!
This set came about because of one of our crew here, Mary, who urged me to do something special for my birthday, so what I did was go and get a new suit since my old ones were not fitting anyway! My old suits were a 46 regular suit jacket and the new jacket that I got is a 40 Regular, and the old pants were a 42pants with plenty of belly left to flop over the belt line like some of us guys like to do, we would rather be very tight in the waist then get the size that really fits the waist, at least that is what I have done. I also should mention that in the before shots I had dyed my hair of course trying to look better. In these after shots, I have not touched the hair since the before ones. I think I will stay with the natural look and clearly, the dye cannot mask the belly! The other tidbit I want to mention here is the experience I had getting this suit, I need a suit in any case because I have a wedding to go to in Toronto coming up , I have never been up there, hear it is cold! In the old days, getting a new suit meant having a tailor take out the pants and fit the jacket. Two days ago on the 11th, when I took Mary up on her advice, the suit fit right off the rack. Put the jacket on , great and then tried on the pants, 34 was too loose, so put on 33/32 and presto magic, got a suit. In terms of shirt, I used to wear a xxl or xl size, the shirt here is a medium tailored slim fit, as is the suit. And at the bottom is the whole suit all together!
