I’m just about to do my last workout of the week, which means it’s the end of week 8, the halfway point in my journey.  I said at the beginning that I would post pics at the halfway point, so I guess it’s time to put up or shut up, right?

First off, there are a few things I’m not happy about.

  • I did not get any taller
  • I think I actually got more pale
  • I think I lost armpit hair
  • I still have more love handles than I would like to have
  • My face is really distorted

With that said, I’m glad that you can actually see a difference between the two pics, otherwise I’d be pretty pissed off to work and work and avoid beer and fries and chips and not see progress.  I think the next eight weeks will show an even more improvement, and I now look forward to week 16 to see what I’ll look like then.

Thanks to everyone who has followed along on my journey so far and left comments and encouraged me to keep going.  Don’t stop now, I still have eight more weeks to go!
