    • I took a month off from posting pictures. Mainly because I had a stall at around 231, and then again around 225 for a while. Well, this morning I got down to 221.8!! It is still hard for me to see much difference, because I see me everyday. I do think I'm gaining some lean mass, as I'm very strict with my SimpleFit workouts. I need to get more regular on the cardio and sprint stuff, but that is coming.

      Anyway, here I am when I started the primal journey, in late December, 2011:









      29.2 pounds down! I am astonished at how much flab is STILL left! I've got so much more to lose. I'm definitely seeing cuts I haven't seen in a decade, but man, I can pinch inches everywhere!

      Grok on!

        I never cared or concerned myself with what I ate. "What the hell is a diet!" I happened to hear Mark giving an interveiw and went to check out MDA..... That was 8 weeks ago almost to the day.

        The first photo (my wife and I) was taken in 2008, but it's a fair representation of what I looked like 2 months ago. She's actually hiding my handles and lower belly fat. Walk around weight back then was probably 205 lbs to 210 lbs (my average for the last 7 or 8 years). 2 months ago, when I started PB, I was 220 lbs with more muscle in the chest than the old picture, but even more belly and handle fat.

        The second photo I just took (inspired by some of your success stories). Obviously I'm still a work in progress but my change has been dramatic. This isn't the first time i've looked similar to what I look like now, but that was over a year when I hit the gym 6 days a week, over trained, over sprained, carb and supplement loaded and still carried around over 210 lbs. This took 8 weeks, I weight 191 lbs, and I haven't felt this good in over a decade. In case anybody didn't catch that, I lost 29 lbs in 8 weeks!

        UPDATED: I keep finding new abs and veins I thought I'd lost long ago. I've leveled at 189 and appear to be adding lean mass as I'm still cutting body fat. This is right after I encorporated free weights.

              You have definitely made noticeable progress. I'm with you man. I've lost 46 lbs, down to 228 and cannot believe how much fat I can still pinch. WTH??? lol! it is like it is looser and concentrating around my belly these days. And the plateaus are a beating! Killin me! I'm not nearly as whiny as that sounds. I love being primal and my progress is great! I just want more faster.

              Primal ROCKS!!

                  • ^JoAnn68 is most likely a spammer. 1. you can't see Bonz' pics yet since they aren't approved and why would a girl say "can i be you. you are gorgeous!" to a guy?

                      I've said that to guys before. Why not?

                            Absolutely. What the eff is up with that?!? I mean, seriously? Good thing is, I can feel firm muscles underneath my moobs, so it's OK. And, I know it's coming off eventually, anyway. That is, if I don't die from high LDL.
