  • I can't tell if I'm more impressed by Kestrel's weight loss, his junk, or the fact that he regularly travels from San Fran out to the Oakland CF box.

      Well, this is just between you and me TigerLily, but CFO is actually in Emeryville now. Land of Ikea and Pixar.

          Whats traffic like for you to get out there regularly? For example, I tend to go to the EPA Ikea rather than that one because I got stuck in bridge traffic once for an HOUR, and at a non-peak time no less.

                  looks like you are gaining a lot of muscle. I hope that your fertility finds it's way back, too, and that your recovery continues to go well for you.

                    • Having spent the last couple of days working through before & after pics - hats off to everyone! It has been great to see the transformations - picture paints a thousand words & all that! Keep up the good work!

                      • No gratuitous shirtless shots here, I'm afraid. I know if I ever run for public office those suckers would be on the cover of the Enquirer in double-quick time. I think these get the point across, however. On the left is June 2007, at 230 lbs. On the right is Sept 2011, at 180, running up to Snoquera Falls east of Greenwater. I haven't been able to run like this since I was 15 (I'm 26 now).

                            • Good morning everyone!

                              I just dropped a line in the "Meet and Greet" section, but all of the amazing transformations here in the sticky have made me want to share a bit of my own journey. I wish I'd had better photography for my "before" pic, but it is what it is. :P

                              My favorite thing about the change is that I'm far from done. If this is the midpoint, then things are hopeful indeed.

                              • Ok, worries about putting photos on the internet aside, I promised myself that I would post some before/during shots up at the beginning of this month.

                                I've got a journal going where I go into detail (but it's basically food, diary, random thoughts) but to give the basices, I'm 42, used to be a lot more athletic - pretty decent local/regional bicycle racer. That pretty much stopped after the 2nd kid came along and he turns 6 this month. And I've had a very very difficult 2+ years.

                                My lowest weight when racing was about 165 lbs at 5'-10"+, average about 173 lbs, and I was always a little bit heavier than most. My max weight was probalby around the beginning of this year at close to 220.

                                I started exercising again following CW and got down to about 200 lbs. A friend has been Primal for over a year and a half and I finally decided to give it a 30 month try on June 1, 2011


                                June 1 - I think just under 200 lbs (changed scales and they don't quite match up)


                                July 1 - 189.1 lbs


                                August 1 - 183.6 lbs


                                September 1 - 180.6


                                October 1 - 172.6 - but probably a bit dehydrated.

                                So 4 months now, 27.4 lbs off, 45 to 50 total. I've tried to take the photos first thing in the morning, same position, same light no posing. Sorry for the poor quality. Don't seem to be able to hold my hand still enough to get a good picture.

                                I'm no Bane or SteveO, but I feel like I'm coming along. I still bike a decent amount and teach a spinning class at the Y 3x/week (more than I want), but I'm no where near at the volume I was when racing. I also try to get 2 to 3 LHT workouts in per week. A combination of Y cross-fit style and just body weight exercises focusing on the 5 Essential Movements. And I do a 3 mile VFF park run maybe twice in 3 weeks.

                                And because I am still a bit vain... I figured out how to use the camera on the laptop and took a photo with a bit more dramatic lighting after my 5 Essentials workout this moring.

                                Trying a journal. We'll see how long that lasts....
