Pre-P90X: The Hairy Dough Boy

So I was going through photos the other day and stumbled across my “before” P90X pictures from two years ago. I have to admit, I was kind of shocked to see just how thick I really was. I mean, I’m packing an additional 35 lbs. of fat right there. My back’s jelly rolls look like they took a couple nicks from a samurai sword and my booty is about to gobble up my shorts. Not to mention a serious need to rendezvous with a Norelco Body Groom.

This was my “did you get your wisdom teeth pulled?” phase– me at my heaviest. I’d walk down the stairs and feel my back, chest and stomach jiggle. I was my own percussion section. I’d make fun of myself before others could and was starting to go with the “tent” look to hide my gut and “man boobs”. It was at this point I’d almost resigned myself to “Well, this is what happens when you get older, so just get used to it”. What a load of clap-traptic crap that was. As they say, the proof is in the pudding:

You’re NEVER confined to a fat, uncomfortable and unhealthy you. It’s not “who you are” or “just how it is”. You have the innate ability to change your circumstance. Heck, that fat, hairy bastage in that picture did it. YOU CAN TOO.

      Ha! Jim, I totally put the beard on the Pillsbury Dough Boy. I think he looks like he’s ready to wrestle some Grizzly Bears. Or become one.

    i’ve thought about just showing up in your basement at the butt crack of dawn and attempting to “work out” with the vintons. but the thought of puking my brains out thereafter just hasn’t forced me. i want to look like MC when i grow up!

    Personally I’m into pudgy papperoni’s so I am a little disappointed with your results. Now when I order my personal deep dish pizza I can’t ask for the Dan V. Truly saddening!
