A friend suggested that I put up a comparison photo from beginning to end. I know I did it with my face last time, so I thought I would show you all the whole story:
In the first picture I was complacent with my appearance. I thought I looked OK. The second and third picture are from June and July of 2012. They were taken 3 weeks apart. The fourth picture is from November of 2012. The last picture is from Friday night. This is the first time that I have thought that I looked good. Where did I go!?!? Don't mind the dirty bathroom mirror.
