There is something I would like to share publicly. Ir's actually highly personal stuff and for a long time it was quite a problem for me to even speak about it. But finally I've managed to do something with that problem! You see, for my whole life (I'm 30) I was a fat guy. But not a little overweight, actually it was clearly visible that I have more body than I should. Last summer I've even reached the first level of obesity(!) with 110 kg (242.5 lbs). Well, that was enough. Something has started to poke my brain that this way I'm going straight to some serious health problems. So I've decided to do something about it. But I'm not a kind of person that would believe in all those wonderful diets doing some miracles with the body. Actually diet (as people usually understand that word in my country) was never an option, because a diet is something temporary, something to achieve a goal. But what happens after that? Well sometimes we return to our own eating habits and we end up with the same or even higher weight. I've came up with an idea that weight is a kind of a mirror that reflects the lifestyle. So things that need to be changed are strongly related with the way we are living. Yeah I know it's obvious! So if we all know that, why not use it? Well my idea was to change my eating habits (mainly because I'm a lazy guy that considers doing some sports as a waste of time xP) And that was it, I've switched to healthy food and slowly reduced the amount of things I eat. So it was actually nothing special – just few things: eating healthy, eating less, eating regularly. That's it. Thanks to this approach I've lost 20 kg (44 lbs) in half a year. Seriously!

But I've still looked fat, at least in my own eyes (yep, I know that I've could judge myself too harshly). Fortunately that 20 kg has inspired me to do even more! I've decided to loose another 10 kg and build up some muscles. Yep and all that with my lazy approach based on not wasting much time on exercises :3 I've decided to experiment with push-ups. And it happened to be a perfect thing for me. It's quick and you can do it almost everywhere. Seriously, I'm doing push-ups even at work (during small brakes of course) and I was able to inspire few co-workers to do them as well! And as I've said, you don't need much time for them. Just look at this simple example: doing 20 push-ups could be less than a minute, do it 10 times during a day, and you end up with 200 push-ups and that's just about 10 minutes of your time. Is it worth it? For me it is and I'm really satisfied with the results. Speaking of which (But be warned! Half naked, fat Rasta ahead!):

To sum things up: 30 kg (66.1 lbs) in 8 moths + a little bit of musculature :-)

So that's it :-)
Yep, I've shared one of the most important thing about me and I'm happy I did it.
Hope you found this little article interesting and inspiring :-)

Hello :-)
Few words about me... (a.k.a. The hardest thing to create)

I'm a person that loves to draw dragons and other fantasy creatures. The main goal of artistic part of my life is to constantly become better in drawing. I would like to develop my artistic skills to be able to create truly beautiful digital paintings. Unfortunately I'm far away from that goal. That's why I'm here. I hope that with the help of people from dA I would be able to become better artist. So feel free to comment my art and to give me any sort of advice :-)

There is something I would like to share publicly. Ir's actually highly personal stuff and for a long time it was quite a problem for me to even speak about it. But finally I've managed to do something with that problem! You see, for my whole life (I'm 30) I was a fat guy.

Oh Mina, dear, it's only me :-) I'm happy to hear that but I'm no one important :-) In my opinion your style of drawing is awesome and you're a great person. It's me who should be honored that such wonderful person like yourself wants to have relations with someone as myself :-)

PS:
I'm thinking about doing a trade with you ;> What do you think about such idea?

P.s.s. Well, I just wanted to let you know that I did some changes at your Birthday Picture from last year.
I just was so unsatisfied with some stuff and tried to change a few things.
