Looking good Joe - what did you do, some type
of 'bootcamp' thing........?
Thanks, Steve! Are you asking about my weight loss? My wedding this coming October has been a huge motivator. I'm going to the gym and or running at least 4 days a week. I've also cut out sweets, grains (including bread and pasta), corn (including tortilla), rice, potatoes, dairy and especially alcohol out of my diet. I've lost 50lbs since December 1st.
Great story bro, enjoyed reading it and watch your hobby evolve, well done with the weight loss too,,, do you ever use any face paint,, you know some of the guys did not wash for days, so a stubble , sweat, etc should enhance the look quite well.
Thanks for taking an interest, Steve!
Some people do use face paint! It's common (especially with airborne guys) to burn cork and use the ash to blacken their faces. If I'm ever at a tactical (aka reenacting an actual battle, I do my best to dirty up my hands, get dirt under my nails and dirty up my face as much as possible. I also have one wool uniform that I never wash which helps me obtain a more front line look.
You'll see in this photo I have a bit of stubble. It's a little hard to see, but I'm wearing my unwashed wools for more of a battle-worn look. These wools will look better with each event I attend.
