    Default Old School Pictures!!

    Post the pictures of your humble beginnings here!!

    From where you started, or where you once were... early childhood, high school, whatever...

    Myself, I have never been big on taking pictures until recently, since I now have something worthy of seeing. But I remember this picture is from early 1998.



    I seem to be doing a lot better for myself these days

    Ha Ha Ha... we're going way back, huh? I think I literally have ONE pic from back in the day because I was Po' and couldn't afford a camera! LOL.

    This was taken in Miami in 1995 when I was 20. I was only about 190 then, but pretty lean. The bulldog is Oscar, and he used to love being swung around by that rope. He would wear your ass out demanding to "play"

    Thanks, Ginsu. I always fool the "Professor Guesser" at the carnivals that try to guess your weight... they are usually under by 15 to 20lbs... too bad they give out the crappiest prizes in the whole fairground! LOL.

    Actually, it is a curse from a competitive BB standpoint. It is much better to look heavier than you really are, not lighter. These days I still have comparable conditioning, but I am 30-40 lbs heavier than I was in the old-school pic ...but the same concept still applies.

    1995.
    There are too many funny things in this one that can only be blamed on smoking the reefer in college.
    BTW. I still vividly remember holding my gut it with everything I had!

    I understand that. Hopefully, when I do finally do my first show, I will be 200 lbs, and look every bit of 215 - 220.

    Probably not likely, given my genetics, but one can dream, and this does not mean I will not give it all I have to make it happen!

    Kind of look like BUD BUNDY from Married with Children in this Pic. Great job with the transformation though!
