    Hi folks,

    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.

            You look so amazing - long and lean!! Do you do lots of exercise or is this mostly from the diet?

            • Hello barefooter,

                What are your goals for here on out?

                Awesome signature quote!
                My first goal is 200 lbs. Once I hit that (1 lbs left) I plan to just kind of live the lifestyle and let the weight settle in wherever it wants. The next goal would be to lose the pinchable stuff and lean out (wow never thought I'd hear myself say "lean out" in my lifetime... what has this lifestyle done to me?).

                After that, just to enjoy life...


                • Wow, some amazing changes being posted!

                  Nossar, I wouldn't even think that was possible.
                  Trifith...I think you've lost 10 pounds just in your face

                    I consider the middle of October, 2011 to be my start date, and I have been taking progress pictures after my workouts that are the first workout past the middle of the month. That day was today, so here are my pics:

                    My weight has been oscillating between 15 and 17 lbs lost, once it got to 19 lbs lost, but that only lasted a day. My shape continues to improve, and even if I stay here I'm grateful for how far I have come.

                            starting to wonder if i will need skin surgery in the end, but i almost think i might not.. losing 1-2lbs per week still .. so damn close to my goal in SUCH a short time .. and to be honest my starting goal was 220 LOL! then 200, then 189... i might be able to push to 185 or even lower.. im not trying to waist away, i just keep letting it go if it wants to LOL .. i even cheat once a week or so with sugar!

                            LOVE PRIMAL!!!!!!!!!!!!

                            • in case you never saw .. heres a random starting pic

                              my wife moved from east LA to live with me in Milwaukee .. she was under the Cali pressure to be thin and ate chicken breast and rice every day once a day .. dieted herself unhealthy ... she moved here and because i love her and support her so much she got comfortable eating lots more LOL, and trying new things like more dairy, more grains, etc (my italian background) ..

                              i never once lost any love for her, but she started to dislike herself .. she weighed in around 148 when we took this if i had to guess.. shes about 114-115 depending on the day now .. went primal 6-7 days after i started! she has yet to add ANY excercise
