That is motivating... I moved to missouri and weighed 225 when i was in texas i talked to the Marine corp recruiter and he basically said i was to big to be a Marine. It shot me down. But i moved up here and thought that if i want it, not to let anyone stop me from having it. So in about 2 months i dropped down to 203, which is my max for my height. I got to be 190 by Jan 3rd, which i am not a self motivated person. Which has hurt me, cause i stopped even doing the little bit of work out i was doing, and now i weigh 205.. But thanks to that pic i have actually started runnign more and putting myself on a training plan. though my weight lost isnt as Significant as yours probably was, i thank you for posting it and Sharing to motivate others like myself. And know i am a little more motivated to achieve my weight and be under so i can do my best in Basic. Also i would be glad if you know anything else that could possibly help motivate me a little more. Like i said im not a Self Motivator, though my recruiter helps since i have enlisted...

I think that is the only reason i have come this far.... I mean i have always been told i could never do it... But that title is what has made me go as far as i have, and i still have along way to go, but i do understand that, and i think that is why i continue preparing myself slowly but surly... I havent given up on working on 100% i just slowed the process down when theres not time to. The truth be The title of United States Marine is what has brung me this far. I was just wondering if there were any other tips on how you did it, besides the ultimate goal of earning the Title of Marine

ok cool, the only problem i forsee is the weight training, not that its a problem its just i do not have acess to get on the base which is bout a 45 minute drive away, and there is no gyms ne where near where i live, though i have taken a natural weight training modification. I live out in the middle of no where where farming is big, so i help buy moving hay bails, cutting logs, moving huge logs, and different farm things, which is a good way to work out, i feel if you dont have access to a gym

Just do that, and buy/make a pullup bar/dip station and you'll be set.

yeh i got a pull up bar... I am an amature boxer, and my boxing instructor gave me one before i moved to missouri.. that is how i started getting out of shape. I am still in shape to a point, but i havent been boxing in bout 3 months so i have been in and out of the being in shape part... but thanks for the advise, and again thanks for the motivation

Here is a pic of me that I took last night, I didn't even realize how big my arms or chest were until I walked by the mirror and was like "DAMN!!!!" so I ran and got my camera and took a pic, haha.
I can't wait until I get my first set of official Marine Corps digital cammies and get to wear them with the rolled up sleeves.
When I go back and look at my "before" pictures I can't even believe that I was the same person. The ultimate "after" picture will be me in my dress blues, can't friggen wait!

I especially like the surprise behind your hip.
You have done an outstanding job getting yourself ready. This thread will serve as an inspiritation for poolees for years to come.

Thanks. I hope this thread will inspire some poolee's, I know there are some fat bodies out there wanting to join who need to lose a lot of weight, are too embarassed to walk into a recruiters office in their current state, etc., and I really hope this thread serves to inspire some of them.
It's a Springfield 1911 TRP Stainless being carried in a Milt Sparks VM2, it's such a comfortable carry rig, I love 1911's. There's also a S&W 642 J-Frame in my front right pocket in an Uncle Mikes pocket holster.
