  • Holy moly! You look fantastic! Those curves are beautiful Goosejuggler. I love my curves and that is one thing I'm afraid of losing when I get down to my goal BUT I think they will still be around no matter what.

    So give us some deets! How long, start weight, ending weight, plan you are following, etc...

    I can't wait to see more progress pics in the future.

      Still a work in progress, as I've started lifting this week. I'll take another one in a month or so and see how i've gone
      Wow! Can you tell us the amount of time between pictures and your height/weights?

      • The first was mid-Jan, and I was about 131/130 lbs.

        The second was 17th March and I was 118.8lbs.

        Thanks for all the nice replies, everyone needs a little ego boost sometimes!!
        I was a little worried about losing my hourglass too (I do love it), but something tells me it won't vanish overnight!

        • Oh and my plan?

          I was doing Turbofire before I found primal, and I continued it until about a month ago.

          Now I've joined a gym, I'm doing NROLFW three times a week, along with riding my bike and some body balance for fun.

          I'm still eating dairy, although I try and limit. Mostly it comes in the form of chocoloate (88% of course!) and mozzarella.

          • @ MamaGrok: Really? Interesting. What is your protocol for ice packs? (how long/how often)

            @ Primitiva: 5'9". Which is notable in and of itself because I used to be 5'8". Working on my posture through yoga and rolfing and stretching (which has helped fix a slight movement-scoliosis in my lower back) is probably the most important factor in that, but the strength training ive done because of primal and the diet heavy in fats and proteins (which is probably good for my spinal cartilage) has likely worked synergistically with all of that.

            @ GooseJuggler: Daaaamn, lady! Super hot! xD

              I think the correct phrase here is 'takes one to know one' You both look awesome. Hopefully you feel as great as y'all look.

                I try to do it every day for 30m or as long as I can sit down. (Some people have found ways to use spanx to hold packs or cooling vests to move around; I'm doing it the lazy way.) (I also take ice cold baths, but eased into it - not hard at all now, and I actually crave them.) Cautions

                - start with fabric between you & the pack
                - know that flexible packs (they have alcohol in them, which can dramatically reduce the temperature) can lead to cold damage much more easily
                - you want pink or bright red skin, never going white
                - if it feels weird or goes white, lay off for a few weeks till that spot's totally healed again. You've done the equivalent of a sunburn - you're not going to die, but you don't want to make a habit of it.

                I usually start with fabric each session, then remove it as the skin goes red, checking color occasionally. I just started icing my thighs, too, can't wait for the results.

                    I had a bit of a rough PB evening (just a low, to be followed by a high to be followed by a low and so on) and so I came to the forum for some inspiration. I found this thread and since I found solace in it, I decided to contribute my own before and after photos for the next person who visits needing the same.

                    My before picture, from the early 2001.


                    I was right at 300 pounds at my heaviest, though these photos are probably around 270s. In 2003, I lost 110 pounds (exercising and counting calories with a SAD) and then dropped another 40 in 2007 (giving up refined sugar, but not carbs in general). Two and half months ago, I started PB and experienced a redistribution of weight. I am still 150 pounds, but my clothes fit as if I were 5-10 pounds lighter.

                    Official "after" picture, taken a couple years ago after eliminating refined sugars.


                    A couple weekends ago in the garden.


                    Trying to eat one of Mark's Nut Butter Bars last weekend while it's falling apart on me.


                    Last October before a push-up challenge called "Octoberchest."
                    I ordered the books, supplements, etc. and decided to browse the forum as I wait for them.
                    This before photo looks like me at high school graduation (guess who did not get invited to the prom).
                    You're a great inspiration to me.

                    You look so strong and healthy -- exactly what I want.

                    • Awesome arms, you look great!
                      Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.

                      • WOW Barefooter, that transformation is AMAZING. Just looking at the definition in your arms has given me a sudden urge to do some pushups!

                              Yeah it's a great one - She hasn't been on in a year and a half though - I wonder how she's doing now.

                              • I thought I'd never get to a point where I could post before and after pics, but I decided today was the day! The before pic was taken in October 2011 at 170 lbs and the after pic was taken today April, 2012 at 133 lbs. I didn't think it really qualified for an after pic because I am 2 weeks post-op from an abdominoplasty which was done to fix the extreme ab separation I had. Unfortunately I didn't take a pre-op photo, but it really looks basically the same with a slight bump in my tummy from my abs sticking out.
