I never order belly leather.  Spongey, stretchy, not firm and doesn't hold shape well.

BUT that could be said for bellies NOT ON COWS, eh? :o  Few months ago, the wench wife bought me a gym membership. Couple weeks ago, she showed up with new athletic shoes, just happen to be my size :blush: 

Fine.  Winter in the north is a bit stifling and I like to get out the chair anyway.  Plus, I'm WAY too cheap to pay for a gym membership and then not use it :ranting2:

So after talking with a girl yesterday who sent me some rather 'racey' pics showing her weight loss "journey", I took a couple myself.  Truth be told, I DO have a bit of 'belly leather' that could be trimmed.  Consider it the "before" pic ... 

ANYBODY ELSE? (Nate, not you kid ;) ).

OH .. to be clear, I'm doing this  because it's a good idea .. NOT because of pics of some girl in her underpants :blush:

And that's my left arm hanging, phone in right  hand. Happens with pics in the bath mirror (note: observation is 9/10 of the law -- note backwards lettering on the free shirt).

As a query, not to get more photos of you...

Is this a challenge/camaraderie shout out?

If so I may be part of a world wide leatherworker.net weight loss team.

If not, maybe just chaw down on more cake. But all encouragement from me.

No photos, but I will join in for non nagging support, my belly leather would upholster a muscle car.

I started down the path just over a year ago, I guess.  I was at 220 lbs/100 kilos and felt generally miserable.  I'm down to 185 lbs / 84 kilos and life is generally so much better. Clothes are more comfortable, my knees don't bother me anymore and I even sleep better.  Didn't join a gym, but I did buy a secondhand dip/pull-up tower in an effort to firm up the details.   It was all diet, though I'm pledging to be more active now that the weather in my hemisphere is starting to warm up.  No photo evidence of my transition, I'm afraid.  I shun the camera's eye at all times. 

Good on you, @JLSleather.  Make it happen.  "Decide what to be, and go be it" as the Avett Brothers say in their song. 

@bikermutt07, MERCY SAKES ALIVE! (as my grandma used to say)  No contest, amigo.  You win.

@GRod I don't think I got 35 lbs to shed, actually, but 15 and harden it could happen ;)

@bikermutt07 Great work.  I'm guessin' that 100 lbs for me means ..  maybe remove one leg at the hip and one arm at the elbow?  :dunno:

You SAY you shun the camera's eye, but then I look at your avatar! Oh, wait, maybe that's a drawing. I see.

My sister-in-lay in Chicagoland just told me she's lost 14lbs since the first of the year, so now that she's shamed me, I have to get busy too. Need to lose 22lbs to get back to where I was a year ago. It's retirement, I'm telling you, it's not my fault.

Do we need an independent judge of this lady's nakedness? Cos I'd volunteer for that chore. Purely in the interests of Leatherworker.net harmony you understand.

I take it you're not a habitual visitor to Thailand then Mike? ;) :lol: Friend of mine had a 24 hour shore leave there once. There was a... misunderstanding by two of his shipmates. They did get the wrong end of a stick.
