I just posted a blog post about my weight loss journey. It gives details into my life prior to and following my gastric bypass as well as how I'm handling being primal post-op. I've also included pics in the post. Come check it out my fellow groks and grokettes. It's a pretty personal post for me.
Follow my blog where I discuss Primal Life post Gastric Bypass surgery and Barefoot/Minimalist running.
Just picked up mark's book yesterday, but haven't read just yet. I am fairly familiar with Paleo and have been eating relatively low carb/carb free for a yr or 2. I am a month shy of 40yrs old. 5'6" currently around 220lbs. At my heaviest 2.5 yrs ago I was about 280 with a 46" waist. I am currently around 35" waist and BF scale at gym puts me around 20%. Goal is <10%. Should put me around 190lbs and 31" waist.
former bodybuilder in my youth so have been back to gym hardcore for better part of 2yrs.
So, no after pics just yet, but here is one from Sept of 2011 and the other from Prob around Oct/Nov. I would say I am probably 5lbs more muscle now and 5lbs leaner. NOT quite lean enough. I feel with my genetics and insulin resistance problem (big in my family but no one wants to listen to me), paleo is the way to go. I play on doing pretty much paleo with leangains IF and have started that this week.
As you can see I carry A LOT of muscle, but leaning out has always been a problem for me. More so now that I am older.
A lot of you have made incredible progress in short periods of time I and I am hoping to emulate you and contribute as much as I can.
So, hello to all and please excuse my attire. 1st pic was an impromptu.
