    Thanks! it's been a great ride, and i am only half way there! Hopefully i'll be in my healthy weight before the european summer...

    I haven't excercised a lot though, i walk whenever i can, but i am most of the time studying and reading. I should get out more just to get things moving. Walk, lift heavy objects, etc...

      Last year I was at about 238 pounds, the heaviest I have ever been. After 6 months on primal I am at 191, was a 42" waist, now 36", and I feel great.
      I did not do real before pics, and I don't really like having my picture taken, but I found 1 from last year:



      "After" pics, these are from my crappy camera phone so not that great quality:




      The crazy thing to me is the pants that I am wearing in the first "after" pic I have had for a looong time, and 6 months ago I couldn't even get them on. Not that I couldn't get them buttoned, I literally could not even pull them up past my thighs, now they fit fine.
      Anyway, thank you all for the inspiration.

      EDIT - seems to take a long time for attachments to approve, i'll try to post another way.
      Jason, that's impressive! congrats!!!

      • then don't look at this thread at work if you think it's an issue of that sort. it seems strange to police a before/after thread where pics are posted by calling it soft core porn when we know it's going to include pics of people in various states of undress.

        and if they were in bathing suits instead, would it be different? i think most people would say so, because bathing suits (bikinis) are "clothes" but underwear equals porn. *eye roll, seriously*

        • Thanks everyone, I feel like a totally different person

          • zoebird - If others can express their appreciation of the underwear shots and call for more of them, why can't I express appreciation of the clothed shots? I didn't tell anyone to stop posting any of the shots at all.

            (As a minor note, outside of personally preferring the clothed ones (for one, I actually think differences are more noticeable that way a lot of the time), I do admit a certain fear for posters' safety if there is anything at all in any of their posts that could connect anyone to their real name or location - there are some NUTS out there, constantly cruising public sites like this one for stuff like this to use for far less noble purposes than simple eye candy.)

            I'm a bit amused that I'm being chastised for a tongue-in-cheek reference to underwear shots as "soft core p0rn" while others discuss openly their desire to have sex with those in the pictures without a bit of offense by anyone. I'm not saying anyone should or shouldn't be offended. I just find it amusing. So it's fine to post intentionally provocative shots, and it's fine to be provoked by the shots, but pointing out that the shots are provocative is out of line. Glad I'm clear on that.


            jasonmh: seriously, that is some really amazing and inspiring progress. How do you feel differently? I can't imagine!

                  LMAO. She knows she's hot so that was probably a very nice compliment.

                  • I like my after shot a lot....I don't like my before shots. I guess it's nice that most people don't think my before pics were too 'bad' but I definitely felt bad about the weight I was at when I took them. I cringe when I look at them.

                    • Body dysmorphic disorder. Or extremely low self esteem. Or fishing for compliments.

                      • I have seen lots of people on these forums that have bodies others would long for and yet they choose to improve them. I think that is what matters - we are all working to be the best our individual selves can be.

                        Anyway, wanted to say that everyone is looking amazing! Keep up the good work! One of these days I may just get the balls (figuratively speaking of course) to post my B&As, too.

                          Ditto. If other people think me at my worst is not too bad well that's fine, opinions are opinions. But to tell me I have to be happy with being 165lbs? Yeah okay....

                          I do not have body dysmorphia or low self esteem thank you. And I think it's weird to accuse someone of 'fishing for compliments' in a thread that's solely designed for people who've proudly made progress to share their pics and receive feedback.

                          • Aaaand if people don't want anyone posting who wasn't originally less than 30lbs overweight they should start their own thread with that being in the title...

                            • Thats a bunch of bullshit. She didn't like the way she looked so she went primal and had great results. Everyone is entitled to post up anything they want that they feel is a success story. Whether it is 1 pound or 100 regardless of what they looked like to start.
