The embarrassing photo thread



  • thought this deserves a thread of its own, prepare to embarrass yourselves...

    first photo - fat bastard Bart 120kg, second photo - 18 year old Bart placing second in novice bodybuiling competition, wieghing in at 76 kilos....  only 44 kilos difference...



  • Aaaaggghhh I don't know where to look!

    I'm not putting a chubbo one of me up there, that is for sure!



  • Hair changes perspective

    Nice budgie smugglers there Barto



  • Nick, would you like me to put that photoshopped version of you up here? :whistle: :happy:

  • Photo One.  Pre Body For Life.  May 2006



  • Photo Two.  Post Body For Life.  12 weeks later.



  • Shaving off the beard definitely helped... but lay off the suntan lotion!

    Honest - I'll find some photos of me. I don't think any exist with my shirt off though.... :nta



  • Good idea for a thread. Wish I'd got a photo of myself from my mid uni days when I was tipping the scales at 118kg vs the 100kg that I am now.

    Its ok Nick im sure Red Bull can photoshop you a shirtless body



  • RB, I was about to say that the dark-red head/ginge-beard two-tone head plus sow-belly white skin could only come from one place on earth. Forgot about out little offshore colonies.Â

    Disturbingly like my brother, in fact.  :nta :shifty:

    Bart, I presume the tape worm went off to uni shortly after the 18yr old photo?Â



  • yes, the next day I was back to 88 kilos, and trying to play hooker at that weight didn't work, so ended up flanking, and raising to the lofty heights of Valley Bs as a seven, before getting big enough to join the ranks of the tight five again the following season, after doing the weights, but not the dieting.  I followed that bad eating plan for the next 15 years with spectaular results, as can be seen by the other photo  :coolsmiley:



  • Never been north of 93, and I still ended up playing a few games as a Senior Seconds tighthead at 82. Simply because I could and there was an injury run on. Best way to learn technique but fecking fast!Â

    Need to be 79 to sail Lasers and 94 to sail 505s. I need a detachable belly.Â



  • I've got some spare weight if you want it Oirish.

    I had a look through photos encompassing the span of the last 3 years, and can't really find two comparable ones :nta Despite being 15kg lighter now than three years ago, I still look like a funt so not much point posting anything! I'll just keep it here for motivational purposes :whistle:



  • I have a peach of a photo from 2 years ago I think, but not one of me now.

    The heaviest Ive been was 122kgs which I rolled in at about two years after I finished playing rugby and six months before starting BFL.  My playing weight was between 105-110kgs and am finally sitting back around there now.  My goal is to get under the tonne for the first time in about 15 years to make life with my reconstructed cruciates a little smoother.  Luckily my love affair with weights and a great new gym up the road will work to my advantage.  Just need to write DISCIPLINE in bold on the fridge and stay away from all the little treats, (particularly the deep fried variety) that have been my lifelong nemesis.

    Dont be offended bro, but I probably wont be asking you to write any speeches in my honour or be my perosnal life coach & motivator anytime soon!  Dont call us, we'll call you.  
    You make it sound as if I could slip in undercover in Munster with great ease.

    I have - but compared to you and the formerly Red Bearded one, its not nearly as obvious Its also difficult to find a decent front-on photo of myself in both the before and after that give a reasonable impression of it :nta Best example would be some of my work shirts that now hang off. Maybe I should take a new photo after finding an old one to match it against?



  • Get you kit off, Get your kit off... Get your kit off for the Fern!!! (to the tune of youre not singing anymore)



  • NTA, I was meaning that in that photo you look like you ahve lost weight, never mind....Â

    The Irish git is correct - me with my shirt off is NOT something we need on the internet...

    Should I also add I have 'Fields of Athenry' on my ipod and have read 'Stand Up & Fight' cover to cover at least three times. I got the impression form the book that while the team rated Ginge Mclaughlins scrummaging ability most of them couldnt bear to listen whenever the big fella chose to open his mouth.  Maybe I should start a Long White Club chapter of the Munster Supporters Club.



  • RB & Bart nice photos. Bart may loose a bit after the honeymoon and RB that tattoo look like a Bulls horn bro. :nta

    Now I get the hint for the Bulls and Waikato support. That photo of Nick look like one of my secret avators. :coolsmiley:



  • Yes, well.... just remember you've pushed me to this. I removed the heads for the sake of those whose children might accidentally walk past - now you can take down that other photo Red Bull!

    Its also worth noting that while the shirt is the same, the pants in the second photo are actually a size smaller than the ones in the first. And I've STILL got room in the bastards!

    But I STILL look like a FUNT!



  • Nick do Red Bulls head fit to your bodies bro? and I thought you guys in Sydney is in the surfing, I mean you need a bit of sun tan lotion.

    Don't all let's rush in with the explanation, lads. it's only fair to let Phooey have first crack at him.Â

    Got measured for a new suit today with tailors I haven't gone to in three years, and am delighted to be able to say that my waist is 2 inches less and my chest two inches more. Neck up an inch as well.  :happy:
