About 140 Pounds Ago

So, here is the Jared we all know and love with his sister on the far right and his cousins in the middle. He is 6' 2" and 240 lbs of pure muscle, well lets rewind to about a foot and 140 pounds ago. . .
Okay so as promised, I was asked by some friends to share some pictures of Jared from high school. Why, you ask, well that's because he was like 5 ft tall and 100 lbs, ya he was a tiny little bugger. No one believes that he really was that small, I found some good ones I think.

Okay so this is his senior picture so he was 17 here

This picture cracks me up. Jared is the small kid in the back that looks like he is 12 well, no he was like 16 and the guys in front where just a year older than him.
Okay so I think he was like 14 or 15 here but look at his hair, seriously can we say flock of seagulls. He had long hair and when he left the house he has his trench coat, white base and black eye liner. Ya, he was one of those guys at school, even I have never seen pictures of him in his make up and black clothes, I don't think there is any pictures documenting this, too bad cause that would be funny.
This picture I think is the best to show just how small he really was, if you look, you see the girl he is with has flat shoes on and she is taller than him. I think he said he was 16 here.
So, there you have it my husband used to be small, so what happened? The Gym! His brother got him into lifting weights and then he hit a growth spurt at the same time and the rest is history.
It's really kind of a cool thing if ya think about how far he has come from then and he is still loving every minute of the gym, he is so awesome with goals and sticking to something once you have started it. He really is the best example of persistence, I mean look at him he has his masters degree and he hated school, he has been going to the gym now for 15 years, although he loves that. He just rises to whatever occasion he is asked to do, that's one of the reasons I love him so much.
