Well I posted this on another forum so I guess I will post it here as well...

THE BEGINNING: This is me at (I believe) late 16 yrs old. Never followed any sort of work-out routine. Played various sports (rugby, baseball, football) all my life.

Intro to weights: This is me after about 6 months of lifting. Didn't work out legs (other than calves) and didn't have a true routine.

This is when I began to follow a legit diet/routine:

More progression: I had also been working out legs for approx 8 months here I believe.

From here, I realized I was putting on as much unwanted bodyweight as I was muscle, so a few months ago I began my keto diet. These are various pics throughout the weight loss.
