Good job buddy! Also, the shot from 2002 and 2011 are BOTH Denzel Washington movies. What are the chances of that??

I think it's funny that in both the before and after pictures he's standing in front of posters for Denzel Washington movies.

Good for him; he looks great.
Hopefully I'll get the itch to start biking again; it really does work (used to do 10 miles a day), and I really do need it...

Um, losing 200 pounds over 11 years is nothing to gloat about. Some people lose 100 pounds in one year. How about that?

If you want to see Ethan at his best......do yourself a huge favor and go watch "American History X" with Ed Norton.

Good for him. Goes to show that (some) obese people aren't stuck with it. I don't know how many times I've heard "I've tried everything.. but nothing works." Usually it's because they don't stick with anything they try long enough to make an impact.. or they don't realize you have to eat healthy AND exercise. If you get off your a55 and do something about it, you can become healthy.

@jmkh - I don't know, maybe he had to slim down to fit into them first. Pretty sure he's in a standard size for them now.

@Joann - Anyone can, huh? I sense that you are probably fat and bitter / jealous. 200 pounds is like losing two small people attached to you. Not everyone can drop that in a few months without surgery. The fact that he lost all that over a long period of time speaks to his level of dedication. A lot of people can trim a few pounds for a wedding or whatnot, but STAYING that way is another story. He's fighting the good fight, and succeeding.
