I have been quite pleased with my progress so far this year. I have stuck pretty well to PB; and actually got back to the gym again (since May). I went on vacation for 3 weeks in June and I went off the rails a fair bit; and have really struggled in the 3 weeks since I got back. The bigger (work in progress) picture (sorry it's so big) was taken last Sunday: tomorrow I will get back on track. I will start to eat properly again, and start back at the gym.. I am really determined to get into the best shape I can by the end of 2012 – well that’s the plan.
From this in January:
To this (work in progress):

Reason: trying to reduce size of pic
Wow Cantare, I am so impressed! My husband has a similar build he's 6' 2" and now down to 233, the lowest I've ever seen him and we've been married for 19 yrs.
Do you ever hike in the Marin headlands? I also love Point Reyes; I have many fond memories hiking there, we lived in the East Bay and SF for 10 yrs. It's funny now that we live in a less populated area it's hard to find good places to hike.
Life is death. We all take turns. It's sacred to eat during our turn and be eaten when our turn is over. RichMahogany.
I lurk, A LOT. I don't post much, but figured I'd at least put this up.
I am not close to my target, but inching closer every day. On the left (august,2010), I was roughly 430lbs with type 2 diabetes (in that pic, I didn't know it yet). I didn't really start on the primal blueprint untill January 1st of this year. Before that I was mostly CW and lost some weight though hard fought (lost 40lbs in 2011 on CW, Lost 70+ This year alone) On the right(May 12, 2012), I am a 308lb Level 1 certified Krav Maga practicioner and no longer a diabetic. I currently weigh in at 295lbs. Just thought I would share.
I am definitely in agreement with those of you who wish you had a pic from day 1, but I'm not going back to get one. I love seeing the improvements that everyone has made, so I'll post up my before and during as well:

This is what I looked like on 6/1/12, with the jeans I was wearing on 1/1/12: 5 months by UniqueTII, on Flickr
I still have a lot of work to do, but I feel great! My chronic and severe heartburn/reflux has gone away, I can think clearer, I have more energy, I'm getting my strength and stamina back, and so on...
