Denny's Transformation Thread

Since everyone is in the spirit of bettering themselves (glad to see it too), I thought I'd throw mine out there as well. As most of you know, I've been back in Iraq since May '08. I've really hit the gym and started eating better. I still have a lot of bad dietary habits, but they're slowly but surely going away. No matter what you do, the most important part of your transformation starts in the kitchen.

Anyway, here's me before I left for Iraq last year:


And here I am in Kuwait in February:


This is the biggest (muscular-wise) I've ever been. I went from a 36" waist to a 31" waist. My squat weight has more than doubled. My bench max is over 100 more than it was 10 months ago. Every weighted exercise I do has drastically increased, some has doubled or more. I'm stronger, faster and healthier than ever. I don't get tired all the time like I used to and I feel better about myself. I could easily say that I saved myself from myself. Just like my car, though, the transformation will never be complete. It's not enough change to win any transformation contests, but the rewards are awesome. I just hope someone else reading this might get motivated enough to start doing something about their situation as well.

Great for you! I will never understand people who muddle their way through life when the hardest thing they do is to get out of bed.

I've been working out for over 20 years now and it will always be a part of my life.

Damn Denny I thought you were older than that. Good job man, I'm hoping they have a gym I can use in Afghanistan when I get there.

From what I've been told the Brits have a pretty nice one, but no one thinks they will let us Jarheads use it.

Dallas news reports Tony Romo tried to commit suicide last night!

Fortunately he dropped the gun and the bullet was intercepted!

LMAO!!! I AM old! I turned 33 last December. As far as I've seen out here, everyone shares everything. I go to an "Air Force only" gym, but I am welcomed there. They have the best equipment that I've seen in Theatre. I'm also wondering about Afghanistan. I'm so spoiled out here in Iraq LOL! The first things they put up on these bases are living areas and MWRs. After that, it's whatever comes next. Do you know which base you're headed to? I can probably find out. Also, sonic93 bounces all over Afghanistan. Might want to ask him. If and when I go, it'll most likely be in the Kabul area.

Fuck you Denny, where are the pics of military chicks?
