I started this journey on february 2nd at 337 and 41 years old. As of this morning I am down to 282. I haven't been this light since i was 19 years old. I have been afraid to share any of this with anyone because i've been afraid it would mean the end of my successes. Truthfully it needs to be shared. This approach has been a life changer/saver for me. I am a very active guy in the coaching profession.I coach football and powerlifting. The fact that the weight loss has continued and not plateaued for longer than 10 days is why i'm not afraid to share..It's almost scary to say that," i'm going to lose 100 lbs". Its like a whole new identity forming. I'm having to buy new clothes because all of my clothes are too big and don't look right. I've always had a lot of muscle but now i'm really getting to see it.The whole thing has been bizarre. I committed to this as a result of reading an article that outlined how heart disease/attacks is/are caused by inflammation and what foods are inflammatory. That article led me to primal. I have been a devoted daily appler since. I love seeing everyone elses success stories especially the ones that are closest to my situation. I would like to say that i've enjoyed the congrats and things from other people but it really doesn't phase me anymore because i wont feel a sense of accomplishment until i hit that 100 lb mark..at that point i think that's an accomplishment for me. Thanks to all of the people on this site who have given insight and shared success stories..it makes a huge difference for guys like me to see your trials. i have MANY friends and family that have started this because of me. This way of eating makes sense and is my new menu:eat and drink the foods that earth has made. (since coors light comes from the colorado rocky mountain streams it occasionally makes it into my saturday night menu) im from west texas for pete sake...anyway, just wanted to share and HOPEFULLY someone else will see my story and be motivated to change their menu...(dont go on a diet)change your menu!
