Weight Loss at Brothers Campfire

Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!

Starting January 2nd, I will be competing in a biggest loser-type competition that will be ten weeks in length.

While I am overweight by BMI standards, I am very active and feel very healthy.

It is kinda like I went from powerlifting and bulking to more cardio and cutting. (Actually, that is exactly what I am doing)

Over spring, summer, and fall, I work a LOT of side hustles, and usually, they involve hard work. During this time, I eat whenever I am hungry to keep my energy up and put on weight.

Then, during the winter there isn’t a lot of outside work to do and so I watch what I am eating a lot more and drop.

I planned on posting a horrendous before picture at a bad angle so the end results are fantastic looking. Instead, what is posted is side by side with bad posture and another with a haircut and a good angle, all at the same hour.

It’s marketing and presentation. I will find it enjoyable in the comments when I read “congratulations” prior to putting in any work because the picture did the talking.

    It seems that there is a huge difference between the first and second shots: you’re right, posture is very important ๐Ÿ‘Œ

      I believe this to be how a lot of supplements are sold. I am not using filters or tech to make this manipulation happen.

    Good luck! I need to lose a few kilos as well, but I’m focusing more on exercising more instead of dieting, because I need my body to be more functional. The posture shots are a great example of the ‘wellness’ industry scams haha

      “wellness” industry indeed! I appreciate functionality over aesthetic any day of the week!
