joe-fat.jpgTo the left is a picture from a few years ago. I was over 270 then, too. This shot is on the cover of my home study course at As soon as the course sells out, I am putting a new picture of me on the cover of it -- a pic of me thin, slim, and ohhhhh so sexy.

joe before 7-26-04.jpg  I'm embarassed, but that's me on the left, at over 270, when I began my fitness program on July 27, 2004. Sigh. I was 50 years old, successful in all other areas, but a failure at weight-loss. Notice I'm not smiling. And notice where I'm standing: right beside the refigerator. How symbolic.

But below is me at about 215 in December of 2004 after a trip to Maui, Hawaii. The shirt is a 100% silk, hand-made, hand-painted, expensive work of art. No wonder I'm smiling. I'm starting to feel like GQ model.

And here I am (below) in August 2005, now at 189 and feeling like Hercules.

And here's another one, from August 2005, after losing 80 pounds. (!)


And this one (below) was taken March, 2006.
