Here are some pictures from when I was gaining, but not yet at my heaviest. I was about 220 in these, taken around the time of my college graduation (May 2010):
Here are a couple from my highest weight, of 240. The first is a picture of me during that second semester of grad school (February 2011), and the second is my official “before” picture (June 2011).
Now for the progress.
