    • My first before and after pic. I went PB in January of this year, so the before is about 5 months earlier. The after is more of a during, since I still have some work to do before I hit my goals.

        Wow, you look like a totally different person! The face of the "new you" is much more handsome!
        Way to go!

        • Mondawg I can't wait to see you pics once they are approved, I read your story and it really hit home, not that I have weight to loose but 3kgs would be nice, but the transformation is amazing. I also read your journal. Are you exercising now and what does a typical day look like?

                • hi sarahz

                  I just started walking again. we have a great beach in my town that has a 2.5 mile loop. I am doing 2 loops 4-5 times a week. I LOVE being outdoors-the beach opens at sunrise and closes at sunset-I have been going in the early evening these days. I wake up early (around 5-6am) and work until 1pm. I have steak for lunch and then work some more. I recently started taking naps in the afternoon for about an hour. I have been taking classes in the evenings, so the nap allows me to have 2 full days in one without getting sick or exhausted. I have more meat for dinner with veggies. I make a lot of roasts as they last me for a few meals and taste great even when cold! I have been getting to sleep between 10-12 at night. The naps and the protein are hugely sustaining for me.

                  I will be starting my ballet videos in June!

                  • Mondawg, what ballet videos will you be doing? I've been lifting heavy for the last few months and decided to do something different, so will be doing some ballet videos in June as well. I'm always looking for recommendations!

                    • Hi jennf!

                      I ordered these videos:

                      Ballet Beautiful - Store - DVDs and Merchandise

                      I have taken a look at them and I like them-just gave myself a start date of 1 June

                      have a great day

                      • 7 months primal pics

                        So, the weight has plateaued between 16 and 18 lbs lost, depending on the day. I think the body composition continues to improve, as does my strength and endurance. I have lost 2 pant sizes.

                        I'm probably done posting photos for a while, unless I get a big drop. I'll be back to check on all your progress, and will check in with my own photo every 3 months to prove that this is sustainable.

                        • Nice pics mommymd, I can see some subtle changes between those 3 month and 7 month pics. You look thinner in the face and your midsection seems to be slimming as well. Nice work!

                          • mommymd, I see *big* changes between months 3 and 7! As trekfan said, your face is slimmer and your tummy is flatter. Also, where your arm meets your torso is slimmer (great for upcoming summer weather!). It's amazing how much change can happen with very little (or no) weight loss, isn't it?

                            • I didn't think I'd be posting in the success thread any time soon, but here I am.

                              I'm posting a progress photo. The second was taken approximately 15-20 days after the first photo (!!).

                              I've deflated from 186 lbs to ~178.5 lbs. I wanted to post because it doesn't look like major weight loss, but I just look so much less "swollen" that I thought it'd be worth sharing. This is a 7.5 lbs difference (I'm 5'10"):



                              Other miscellaneous:

                              Diet: No dairy or nuts besides Kerrygold. No drinking calories, protein shakes, extra sauces, etc. Haven't been worrying about carbs (mmm potatoes). Eating low calorie.

                              Workouts have been walking, maybe 4-5 times a week. I've only recently started a weightlifting regimen and sprinting to keep pushing.

                              More to come, I hope!!!!
