Its sort of like taking measurements but without actually taking them. Its easier to see reduction with a compression shirt. The first two are from Oct 2011 at 241 and the last four on August 6, 2012 at 248
    It is very impressive. Are you 100%

    • 100% Primal? Far from it. I wouldn't consider myself 100% though unless I ate a good portion as pastured and such though. Most of my meat is conventionally raised...and I still eat a smoothy with probably too much fruit in it. I use about a cup maybe 1.5 cups of milk a serving of yogurt and blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. Not a ton of sugar in those but I probably use too much. This is lately though I don't always do the smoothy.

      I wish I had access and money for pastured and raw dairy because my dairy is conventional sadly. I should probably cut it out but I like the smoothy more with it added. I'm mainly drinking the smoothy because I can't stand plain Water Kefir. I'm making Water Kefir using Maple syrup...I don't know if I'm doing it wrong or what but the grains don't seem to be multiplying. I'm using Fiji or Iceland Pure so its not chlorinated or fluoridated like tap water.

      My last major off day involving carbohydrates was a few days ago...I ate 3 pieces of pizza and 2 bread sticks. Haven't had it in awhile and so I ate quite a bit. I'm already back on the way down though I think so that's good.

      Lately I've been eating quite a bit of bacon...nothing special so it has nitrates and such but I eat what my mom buys and she doesn't go to Sprouts very often and usually she buys the normal bacon. I've also been trying to eat a bit more fish since reading Jack Kruse's latest blogs about Epi-Paleo.

      One of these days I would love to be eating all Organic, Pastured with plenty of raw and cooked wild caught seafood. At the moment wild caught seafood is the only thing I have access to and that I get from Sam's Club. I need to eat more of the seafood I'd love to eat the pound a day recommended by Jack but that's expensive.

          Still pending approval.
          Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

          If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

              OK, thanks Gadsie. I did that & it worked.

              But am I the only one that thinks 7+ days is a bit long to still not have 3 photos approved by the mods? Others experience this extreme lag too, wots, uh, the deal..?

              • It's way easier to put up images using the [IMG][/IMG] tags. Just upload your photo to Photobucket and put the link to your picture in between the tags. Don't bother with picture attachments.

                      If it's food porn or a silly youtube vid, it's approved quickly, from what I can tell... If it's a little gratuitous flesh shot, are you saying that they do little or nothing? It does seem that way.

                      "...never approved" seems untenable.

                      Thanks, Hank. My weight loss is not significant, but my pain loss (minimization) is... Also, my weight has been redistributed, losing that stubborn fat around my tummy & love handles, gaining muscle everywhere.

                      I'm definitely a lot stronger & in a LOT less pain, which is "Awesome", as I can keep on keepin' on...

                              • Here's my latest progress picture. One year difference. 165lbs or so on the left, 130lbs on the right. I eat low carb, high fat. Several months of higher carb (fruit and potatoes) pretty much stalled me out. I've returned to low carb, high fat and have started losing again. I'm 5'3" and 47 years old and can wear a bikini and not die of total humiliation.

                                Female, 5'3", 50, Max squat: 202.5lbs. Max deadlift: 225 x 3.
