Ha! Smiles are for the photogenic, which I definitely am not. I just can't smile for cameras, at least not often. I smile and it lasts half a second. As soon as I realize what I'm smiling for, it turns into a grimace or just kinda falls off my face.
Thanks for the encouraging words, all! I'm kinda hoping I'm at my maintenance weight at 165-167 lb. Just need to swap a bit more fat for muscle and I'll be set. Got a family gathering the first weekend of September, and some of my relatives on that side are really unhealthy. I'm hoping my appearance elicits more than jovial teasing and I can help a few of 'em. If not, at least I can look good out at the lake for what will be the last cottage weekend of the summer here.
Oh, and for those who haven't seen it, there's a good little article on MovNat's Erwan Le Corre in HFM: http://movnat.com/press/20110701-hea...st_century.pdf
