  • A Primal couple at Christmas (155 pounds lost)

    This weekend we had our yearly office Christmas Party and of course there were a lot of photos. I added some to Facebook and realized I had one from last years party. I went Primal back towards the end of January and dropped 100 pounds in a little under 5 months. (currently a little over 125 pounds lost)

    My wife had been doubtful from the beginning but its hard to argue with losing 100 pounds in 5 months while eating plenty and feeling great.

    Back in June she began eating Primal with me which was great as now my food options were dramatically better. We ordered the cook books and also did some experimentation with recipes.

    My wife was never really big in the first place and while only 27 years old we have 3 kids. She has so far dropped 30 pounds just from eating Primal and staying active (she is a stay at home mom) with our 4 year old, 3 year old, and 16 month old.

    I am really proud of her and thought I would post this picture highlighting the difference. She is now under the weight she was at when we got married 6 years ago!

    If any of you are like me you love to see the weight loss pictures as much as I do. So without further ado:



    (I realize it takes a little while for the pictures to show up when you upload them)

      It was college and I was a cool Senior who was 22 almost 23 and she had just turned 19. I always like to say I tricked her while she was still young :-) When she graduated college we actually got married that same day since all her family was in town (I had graduated about 2 years earlier). 5 months later we got pregnant with my daughter Alanna and now we have 3 kids. I was and still am a lucky man.

              beautiful couple/family!
              I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.

                            There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

                            My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton
