I've got mostly compliments but some people said I looked nicer when I weighed more. A close person especially said that in her opinion I look unhealthy and emaciated. Thoughts?
Last 3 pics are After.
You look so much better.
I'm surprised your friends are berating you, but that's the kind of topsy turvy world we're living in.
It's just one person actually, and she used to made fun of me when I was overweight too lol.
The first pic looks like the Italian guy Jean-Marie Celine. What happened to him? I don't understand
Did you steal his pics
Let's say he left because he saw no use in being an Influencer anymore and that account was too much steeped in negativity and topics he had no real interest in.
Also, he wasn't a positive presence and we are all much better off without that guy.
He had changed though and unblocked everyone and tried to be friendly and positive
Well you look like his long-lost brother
Are you also Italian?
Also, congrats on your weight loss
That wasn't enough, some months of positivity don't make up for him being a jerk to everyone for over two years.
Thank you for your kind words!
Let's say we are closely related - I'm the good twin, he was the evil one 😉
I like your first picture the best. Your weight looks good on the 5th picture. You look a bit too thin in the last picture.
First picture is of June, I weighed around 70kg. Last picture is of last Saturday, and now I weigh 62. Maybe I should be careful to not go from one extreme to the other, from overweight to underweight!
Whatever you are doing in the first pic, keep doing it. Looks sharp!
Pic #2 is too much like Floyd the Barber from Mayberry.
Lol... have to say, you kind of look like a certain dictator I read about. But yes, you look good
Thanks! Well, I do run for a public office, but I won't be a dictator, don't worry!
Ahh, that's good to hear!
Honestly you look great :) well done.
Also, nice mao suit. Looks good on you
I love them, they are simple and yet more elegant and make me stand out more together with other suit and tie coworkers! Although my favorite ones are too large now lol.
I was considering it, all my suits, Mao or western, are tailor-made, but as of now I still haven't had the chance to go to my tailor and check it out. Theoretically it shouldn't cost much to get them ''slimmed down'', but if the result risk being shabby I'd rather have new ones made. For now I'm wearing the black ones which ironically had stopped fitting me this year!
I like black, but for when it's hot it's not too comfy - I'd like to get a model like the one in the pic in the same grey color and linen but with the narrow collar instead of the large one. Also khaki could be a bit of a dare but I think it'd look good. Not full white though, because I tried it and it made me look like a waiter, plus it gets dirty very easily lol.
Thank you for your kind words!
We'll see, for now I'm all taken by the local elections which are due next month - actually in some 20 days - and I hope my efforts will pay off. If that's so, there will be five years of hard work, and even if I don't win I'll still have five years in the opposition.
Yeah it is
Have to say you look either like a dictator or like a drug lord in a good way
its all about how you feel at the weight you are at? you look good at either but do you feel better at one more then the other.
I dream of having so many suits and always looking clean and neat...
Thank you for your kind words, I admit I'm a bit obsessed with clothes and appearance lol.
I'm sure you look awesome, both in suits and other clothing!
We're both obsessed then haha.
And thank you so much! You don't only look like a gentleman, but you act like one too! ❤️
That is good. I only lost 7 pounds since then. Good to "meet " you, sir.
Your style is so cool
You look good with the weight loss. Nice job
Thank you for your kind words!
You look like Kim jong-uns long lost white brother
I like wearing Mao suits but that's where our similarities end, politically and personally. I'm close with the Chinese-Korean community of my town and chair the Stop Asian Hate of my province but I don't support their countries' native regimes.
Sure is! Well done
I would say so...
I would say the last 3 pictures look best but I mean you could also bulk up a little by weightlifting if your felt you were to skinny or something.
136 is pretty small though but so long as your getting proper nutrition it shouldn't be a problem.
Thanks! I already do some exercise - limited because I suffer from breathing issues - but I'll check with my doctor what weightlifting I can do!
That's good aside from that eat well and make sure your getting all your nutrients and vitamins.
If I may ask the breathing issues are they due to weaker lungs or is it more something you can't really control like Asthma, Anemia or COPD?
COPD, mostly caused because I've been a smoker since I was 12. I've been doing my best to quit and have managed to stop for circa 9 months, but now the habit has returned. I smoke much less than before though.
Well aside from stopping altogether the next best thing would be to smoke the least harmful substances possible such as pipe tobacco or stop inhaling the smoke altogether when smoking.
I'm also a smoker so I get it a good cigar or whatever you smoke is heavenly. I'd start with trying to not inhale. I've been smoking since I was 17 and don't suffer from COPD because I don't inhale. Won't cure COPD but it might help with stopping it getting worse until you can get to a point where you can quit anyway.
Aside from that strengthening your lungs would also be a start if it's something your doctor would approve of. Does he have you on steroids'?
Well, I smoke cigars and YSL cigarettes, which are less harmful than standard cigarettes. And yeah, they do taste and feel fantastic! You spend a bit more but smoke much less, and since it's more quality the damage is slightly less.
I used to be on some medicines - corticosteroid drugs - that were complicit in causing my weight gain. Now I'm on simpler bronchial dilators to which I'm reacting much well and don't cause such issues, so it was easier to lose weight too.
Yeah when it comes to smoking it's worth spending a bit extra because of the quality high quality cigars are so wonderful. I smoked a 40 year old aged cigar wrapped in a extremely rare African Cameroon wrapper it was superb.
Well it seems like your doing everything right
In regards to weightlifting it's actually beneficial for your COPD especially upper body exercises since it'll help strengthen heart, lungs, and surrounding respiratory muscles.
With that being said though you should be careful because it can cause distress but it is overall fairly safe.
My main thing would be that if you get into it any kind of exercise your doing where a weight is on your shoulders, over your head or chest or anything like that always have a spotter in case you start wheezing or coughing, etc that way you don't drop it on yourself, injure yourself or worse. But overall it's fairly safe to do it aside from the distress it can cause. but I'd still check with your doctor.
This is a good article to read over regarding it written by a qualified individual lots of good info.
I also apologize for the long conversation regarding this but I use to be a personal trainer so my old PT instincts kick in when I see this kind of stuff lol.
That must have been heavenly... I'm sure the taste was superb.
Don't worry, I appreciate all your tips and I will check out the article you've linked. Thank you for all your tips and advice, I wholeheartedly appreciate them!
O it was wonderful they're quite rare I got lucky and was able to nab some. I had some one time that made me weak in the knee's and sent shivers down my spine they were even better.
No problem glad I could be some help.
