Ring on the Right Hand

I wear my ring on my right hand these days.  This is actually normal in German speaking countries but that isn't why I do it, my wife still wears her ring on the left (and she is even German.)

I have lost a lot of weight in the last year, and after about 30% some of it came off my fingers.  I was gesticulating wildly (as I am apt to do) in Barcelona and my wedding ring just flew off and rolled down the street.  I found it and switched to putting it on my right hand as it it is a little larger (I suspect it comes from being right handed.)


First Thing in the Morning
Hair Slicked Back Before Work

I look different these days.  The strange thing is that I don't look different in the mirror, only in photos.  I guess I look at myself every day in the mirror (but I don't see any more of myself than you can in these photos they were taken at exactly mirror height.)  The left is first thing in the morning.  I think I look like a female impersonator my eyes and lips are too big!  Well I also look more like my mom.  The one on the right is after the shower and after I have attempted to put my hair down.  I look a bit more like by biological father if he ever felt like looking respectable, which happens every now and then.

Holy shit Robin!

The right photo (sorry) looks almost like a younger Mark Towfiq.

P.S. I am totally inspired by the fact that you now weigh 5 pounds less than I do.

I have lost quite a bit, only a little bit more to go the I want to come back to this weight. As I have an excess of loose skin these days. It still is funny looking different.

I don't realize it most of the time, but I went on a business trip to Finland and had a hotel room with lots of full length mirrors and called Taska and told her "I look different" and she was not surprised.

that would be hillarious I would have to have enormous fingers. No 30% was arround 30kg (66lbs).

For me it has mostly been a matter of measuring the right things and dicipline, but when the two line up it isn't too difficult.

Hmmm - the right one looks weird. Not sure if it suits your personality either. At least not the way I got to meet you (very shortly).
Completely forgot to post on lj - might do it more often in a while again. After we moved and got married. :)
