Three years ago I got a broad fork for my birthday, and I made a post about it: How it performs, how much I like it, etc.
Now, while I was being photographed, I had on a tie-dyed t-shirt that I had made myself at a session at one of my friends’ place. That was a truly fun day. I like doing tie-dye, almost as much as I like wearing it.
This post serves a dual purpose. It features a tie-dye t-shirt that I made myself, but in addition it serves as a sort of watermark for the last year’s focus on getting my weight down to the level I enjoyed during my collegiate days. I have nine pounds to go to reach my goal.
First, the picture that Jim took of my back in 2007, one week after my birthday, as I demonstrated my new broad fork.
And now, a photo taken two weeks before my next birthday as I pose with my broad fork. In the above picture I was actually working with it, this shot was a set up. For the record, the shoes that I have on in the above picture died a terrible death by mud during the ensuing summer. The shoes I am wearing in the following picture are my favorite ones! Also, the shorts I have on in the two pictures are the same garment. I find it amazing that I have not destroyed these garments in the intervening three years.
Physically, not mentally. Mentally I am still 110%.
