PhotoHunt: Skinny

Today's theme for is skinny. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had just the photos...

This is my husband way back when. This was before we met and if I were to see this photo today without knowing it was him, I would never recognize him.

Updated to clarify my comments: My remarks about my husband's photo are not meant in a mean or derogatory in any way. He looks a LOT different in many ways. Even if he was still this skinny (he's not fat now...just not THIS skinny), I don't think he would look similar to this old photo.

And here's me a long time ago too. This photo was taken around 1993 when I was about 19. It was when I was at my lowest weight because I had just recently dropped out of college (yes, I'm a dropout) and left ROTC behind. ROTC was the reason I was thin. They thought I was 15 pounds overweight and required me to workout 5 days a week instead of the normally required 3 days per week. Despite all the exercise, I didn't drop a single pound but I did get smaller.

"...and if I were to see this photo today without knowing it was him, I would never recognize him."

That was a cruel remark, we, men, add some weight when we mature, but it only add more... er... whatever ;-)

Oh, yeah - maturity!

Have a great week!
