Before | After

Three years on...

While tomorrow may be my birthday, today marks the three year anniversary of the start of my diet.

I have changed considerably in those three years, physically and mentally, though none of the mental changes would have happened without the physical changes happening first.

To show how much I have changed, I present the following two pictures:


The first photo was taken 29 July 2002 at the Kangaroo Point house. I had borrowed a camera from work and was playing around with it. The second photo was taken less than a month ago, 7 August 2007, while I was playing around with my digital camera.

The face is where I see the difference the most. I don't know how I managed to let myself get that bad without noticing it. I think what's worse is that I got worse in the two years after that, before I actually woke up to myself.

I think of everything I have done, that's what I'm the proudest of.

Wow dude, quite amazing!! Congrats ;) Some day I'll have to post a pic of myself when I finished high school and was at my largest and now. The difference between the two mes is pretty astounding, like yours.

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I'm saying it now since I don't know when I'll be able to post since I'm away from home for the next few days and all that :P Hope you have a great one...

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
