  • It's not a picture, but I thought I'd throw it out there that I got into a size 8 dress little black dress today and almost went into shock. I haven't noticed a big scale change but apparently there are little shifts still occurring and that makes me beyond happy. It's the first time in my life I've ever been in the single digits in a clothes size. At my heaviest I was a size 28..... a size 14 when I started my primal journey. So there you go.

    Meep.

I've seen people comment about other transformations that the before and after pics look like different people, but your pics are the first where that was true to me. Those two pics look like two totally different couples. And if the Ms. (sorry, don't know if tcb is the mr or the ms) changed her hair color, I honestly would not have believed that it was the same person.

            Kudos.
            Thanks for the props.... everyone.

            I'm the Mr. and the Mrs. would probably kill me for posting that before photo on the intenets. I'm proud of her, she definitely skews more to the 80/20 rule than I do, but she's worked hard and is probably only a month or two away from being in the same amazing shape she was when we met a decade ago. I'm hoping she slows down a bit, the clothing budget is shot for the next couple of years.

            • TCB - I got in big trouble posting my wife's pictures as well. It was totally worth it.

              • With that kind of transformation, you have to post pics. She and you should both be proud.

                Do you know what your total weight loss was? What were your eating/exercising habits generally? (or do you keep a journal?)
                Starting Weight - January 3, 2012 - 276.4 lbs
                One Month - February 3, 2012 - 260.8 lbs
                Two Months - March 3, 2012 - 253.8 lbs

                Current Weight - April 3, 2012 - 246.0 lbs

                  I lost about 90, give or take, between the two pics.. went from a size 46 pants to a 36.. but it was really July before I quit half assing it. Dropped 30 in the first six months, 60 in the second 6. She's down about 30~, but is not quite as compliant on the diet. I'm probably 95% paleo and fell into a natural IF routine. We've pretty much followed PBF for training for the last six months, but I switched from lifting weight to bodyweight routines around the time of the "before" pics due to recurring injuries (tennis elbow, knee pain, etc..). I love it. I'm fortunate enough to live fairly close to work, so I get my "move slowly" in by walking to work as often as the weather permits. We do the LHT portion of the program twice a week and typically begin Sunday with a tabata set of burpees for our "sprint" session. If I'm feeling froggy, I'll throw an extra session of burpees in mid-week. That is honestly only about once a month.

                  I journal the workouts to keep myself honest, but haven't felt the need to track food thus far. I eat until I'm full and eat again when I'm hungry. Typically 11 am and 5pm... I also drink a whey protein shake post workout on LHT days. That being said, I will probably have to start tracking calories/macros and BF% if I want to get into the single digit bodyfat range, which is my 2012 goal.

                  • well well, i haven't really changed much in the last year, maybe put on about 10 pounds again, but still over all just the same as the beginning of last year...though going through the pages here (plus getting a new and much less stressful job) i'm going to step up my game! plus my new job has a weight room on site and is free for me...so watch out world, i'll drop the remaining fat and lean up in no time!

                    plus congrats to all you guys, its great seeing so many smiling faces on here!

                    • TCB, if she complains, tell her that folks on the forum think she's hot. That should at least give her ego a little boost (while still being mad at you, of course.)

                        • 8 week mark...

                          Before pics (probably around 215 pounds here):



                          Roughly 8 weeks:


                          The last pic was taken after I had a beer and a small pizza last night.
                          I hurt my shoulder and didn't workout for about 10 days, otherwise have been very consistent with my workouts.

                              Congrats Kenzington! Those are some incredible stats -- the one-time size 28 girl now dancing around in a size 8 LBD makes me picture Elaine from Seinfeld in the cake episode. I love it!

                              • Looking good PW. I have some OT questions:

                                Where in Canada did you move from?
                                What took you to California?
                                Do you like living there?
