Since 2010 I have been a Falcons football season ticket holder and every August marks the preseason games and the start of the new season. In December of 2010 one of my good friends that I have season tickets with gave me a very dear present, a Falcons football jersey. It was a 4x in size and actually was a bit tight at the time. I took a picture and have since started snapping a picture at the beginning of each season as my weight has changed. When I got the jersey I weighed in at a whopping 365 pounds.
In May 2012 my wife snapped a new photograph as I had lost some weight and gotten myself down to 320 pounds after a bit of running and my the seeds of triathlon were planted.
When the new 2012/2013 season started I had another picture taken with the same jersey on. At this point I was close to running my first 5k and I was on the path to triathlon. Last night marked the start of the new NFL season and thus it was time to don the jersey once again and snap another picture. I think the change from last August is fairly noticable.
Last August I was closer to 300-310 pounds and had begun to get in decent enough shape to undertake a triathlon training program. Back then I wore a size 52 /50 inch waist, today I wear a 46 and weigh in at 287-290 pounds. At this point the jersey looks ridiculously large on me!
