You go, guy! The busting metropolis of Butler has less to love, but that's a good thing.

Spice, you look very handsome in both pictures, but your weight loss is becoming.

I am 5' 8" tall, and in my teens I stayed around 120. After I had a child in my early 20's, I stayed within 130-140. In my 30's I started running a greenhouse and building muscle, and my weight ran between 140-150, but I was strong as an Amazon. For example, I shoveled coal into 5 gallon buckets...about 75 lbs. each, carried one in each hand to balance, and made about 5 trips a day, feeding the stoker to heat my greenhouse. When I was 38, I divorced, and got down to the 130's again. Once I remarried, I put 15 lbs on real quick. In my early 40's I had a hysterectomy and started taking estrogen...my weight jumped up to 170 lbs.
That grossed me out, so I went on a no sweets/low fat diet, and with all the exercise I got in my greenhouses (the new ones were heated with gas, but they were 100 feet from front to back), I lost 30 lbs in 6 months.
Now I can hardly walk, but I manage to keep my weight around 160. I'd feel better if I lost 20 lbs, but that's a lot harder to do anymore.
Besides, I give great grandma hugs. Old and young like'em.

ok, first thing to know is that I am an engineer and the second thing to know is that I am compulsively data oriented.

So it should come as no surprise that I have charted and calculated my weight loss.

See the chart:

I am 5' 10", am active at home (calithenics, weights, running, walking, etc.)
And since the middle of July, I have averaged 140 lbs.

Perhaps that's helped by the fact that I am 17 yr. old.
