PHOTOS! Part One

I’m so flippin’ excited to publish this post I could scream!

A couple weeks ago, my friend Mike Rozman and I hiked out to a burned-out bridge in the Angeles National Forest for a photo shoot.  You can read all about that day here. Mike is an mind-bogglingly talented photographer (which you’ll soon see for yourself, but you should also definitely check out his website), and here are a few of the photos that Mike took of me that day.  I’ll post the other ones later this week.

I can’t adequately describe the feeling that came over me when I first opened the file Mike sent that contained these images.  I was overcome.  I was stunned.  I’m glad I was sitting, because I would’ve been knocked off my feet.  I thought for a split second there had been some mistake – is that really me? Yep, it’s me all right!  I saw myself in a new way, and the pride that washed over me… well, it made me cry.  I’m man enough to admit that.

So I’ll stop rambling now, and let the photos speak for themselves:

Oh man, I’m tearing up again.

Keep it up, David!

    WoW!! You look amazing! You should be so proud of yourself. Even when you don’t realize it, you are inspiring people to lose weight, if through pictures or your blogs. Thanks for the inspiration! You look awesome! Enjoy it, you deserve it!!!

    Seeing photos of yourself is so different than looking in the mirror. Your mind can play tricks on you in the mirror but you can’t deny what you see in a photo. You are a very very handsome man and those pictures really prove it. I am glad you finally saw what everyone else sees when they look at you. Maybe your career should be in front of the camera and not behind the scenes.
    The photographer is very talented, but he had great subject matter to work with.

  22. Leslie says:

    Nice pics David! You should be proud of yourself.

  23. Rhea says:

    Hi David, Your pics are awesome! You look great and you should be extremely proud of what you have accomplished! I have been reading your posts for a couple months now and desperately need your advice 🙂
    I need to lose about 35 lbs. and am working with a trainer. The problem is I am an emotional eater. Before you started this journey, would you say you were an emotional eater? Do you think that’s how you gained the weight? I am talking to a therapist too about this, but I know the best advice comes from people who have experienced this firsthand. My problem is that I use anything “bad” that happens to me during the day as an excuse to emotionally eat. It sucks and I have to get myself out of this rut! I have lost 10 lbs. since Jan. 1st but gained some of it back, despite working out on a regular basis, because of the emotional binges. Anything you can share with me would be a tremendous help! Thank you so much! XOXO, Lisa in Northern CA

      Thanks, Lisa, for the comment, and welcome to Keep it up, David! You asked a great question, and I plan on answering it in an upcoming blog – so check back soon! It’s FANTASTIC you’re working out so much – and FANTASTIC that you recognize emotional eating as an issue, because both are key – so KEEP IT UP! -David
