    I guess I would just like to get lean now. I am about 20 pounds from where I would like to be (goal is around 200 pounds). I have lost about 7 pounds of fat since that last november picture. I actually updated that picture yesterday with a december pic but didn't post it. Hate to start posting every month.

    I hit it hard in the gym 5 days a week with particular emphasis on weight training and light cardio and also go on a lot of walks and jogs after work. I just try to never give up.

    I have to admit the other day was the first time I have not felt fat or heavy, just normal. I just randomly realized it on my way to the gym. Was a nice moment.

    Currently 130 fat pounds down which is 120 pounds on the scale while putting on 10 pounds of muscle
    According to my kids I am looking more and more like the Hulk every day

          Wow! Thanks for posting! I'm down 60 pounds over the past year and really have another 200 to go before I'll be where I'd like to be...I'm worried a ton about having saggy, loose skin. Basically, you attribute your success at avoiding that to prayer, weights, and light cardio? I can do all three of those!
          Goal: 230 @ 10% BF (preferably less)

              Wow! I'm just beginning my Primal journey, again. I have 100# to lose, as well. Finding your success story is very inspiring. Primal Clay because your name is Clay, or you're a clay artist?

                  Thanks again to all. I am still plugging along. Hope to post some more pics soon. I have a 5 year old, a 3 yr old, an 18 month old, and my wife is 3 months pregnant. By the time I get home from work and the kids go to sleep there never seems to be much time or energy left for some glamour shots :-) I am doing well to stay on 2 feet usually. My wife has always been a stay at home mom so its my show from the time I get home especially with her low energy levels and morning sickness that for her is an all day and night sickness.

                  I still lift weights for an hour each day at lunch (Mon - Fri) and go on 1.5 to 3 mile walks each night (after 9pm) with some sprinting across the soccer field by my house a few times (2 to 3 times a week). I still eat strictly Primal for the most part (probably 95%). I often get frustrated wishing I could do more in regards to biking, hiking, nature walks, rock climbing, etc.. but then I remember the my main starting motivation at 340 pounds was to get healthy so I could have more energy for my family. So fitness and nutrition remain important to me but in the end I try to not loose sight that all I have done to change was so I could be a better husband and father.

                  In the end I will never win a beauty contest or be a fitness model but I will be a better man than I started out as.

                    Wow! You have done a fantastic job. Your story can give all of us encouragement.

                    Hope your wife is double primal:-) That's a lot of kids quickly, and her body's going to need a lot of nourishment (once she gets over morning sickness, of course). Hope that goes away asap.

                    Thanks for the pictures. If you don't like mirrors -- I so relate -- you can look at those. I used to be rather photogenic. Now, pictures make me look worse than I do in mirrors. Weird.

                      I put a few full body shots finally after a few suggestions. I just added them in the before and after thread so who knows how long it will take for them to be approved.

                                Thanks Todd. I have been the king of plateaus lately. For me it has been easy to forget where I started and just focus on where I would like to be which can lead to feeling down like you mentioned. That is why I made the little side by side comparisons and finally a full body one. Maybe someday through the miracle of science redheads will be able to tan and I will post some shirtless pics.

                                My full body shots (in my new cool bacon shirt) finally were approved on page 379 on the before and after picture thread.

                                -adameads I knew you were joking, just reminded me of that old nickname. Then on Saturday night I went in a gas station and the older scraggly looking employee referred to me as Hoss. I got a laugh out of it. Glad to be Hoss for a better reason now at least :-)



                                Will try to add my pics to this post too but not too tech savvy so not sure it will work.

                                as mentioned these are far from glamour shots, more like end of a rough day / taken with an iphone type
