Get it? It's a 300 reference. I figured since I broke the hallowed 300 pound mark it was only appropriate. The truth is this has been a long time coming and I'm just excited I finally got to shave my Ted Kazinski beard. It's been an exciting week, and I knew it would be close, but to step on the scale and slide that top slider all the way over to the left and NOTHING HAPPENED, wow. So now, the top slider is once again all the way to the right, but the bottom slider, well it's over on the 250 notch, so there!

Anyhow, enough about being under 300, let's get the good stuff.

Here is what I looked like before the shave:

Yeah, I know, Unibomber right? Still, this may just be one of my favorite pics of me ever. I'm strangely drawn to it. At least I know if I ever get arrested, after being down on my luck, the mug shot will rule.

To complete the effect:

Now for my son's favorite, the 70s cop look:

and finally, for the first time in maybe 6 years, Dice with a naked face:

Hmmm, I think I want my beard back.

30 more pounds to go, and about 5 months to get there!

See you next week.


  1. Congratulations!!!! That's awesome you've broken into the 200's!! This first picture does look like a mugshot. :) And you look about 15 years younger without any facial hair!

  2. Awesome change man! What is your typical exercise routine (if that even exists ;) )

    I'm a fan of the no-beard look. But the goatee look also would suit you well.

  3. I think it's funny that without all the facial hair, your niece kept calling you Uncle Drew.
