    • I got serious about my health after I saw my wedding pictures. I had hit a high of 255 lbs, and didn't really like what I was seeing:
      At 255 pounds

      I started severely restricting carbs in July 2011 - on my own because I hadn't found MDA yet. I didn't take any "before" shots probably because I wasn't too happy with how I looked with my shirt off.

      This is a couple of months later and about a size smaller
      At about 235

      And this is where I am now:
      Dressed
      Shirt off, front
      Shirt off, side
      I'm at about 195 after 15 months or so, and I've been plateaued for a while. But my new-ish exercise program (60% boxing, 40% cross-fit) is moving the mass around a bit.

      All in all, I'm happy with my progress. The funny thing is that I'm far more aware of my current spare tire than I was of all the extra weight I used to carry around. Go figure.

        The after picture is first. September 8 2012. It is because of the before picture in April.( I am second from the left) April 5 2012. After I saw that, I got serious. I am still losing. Most of all I have lost my Blood pressure meds. My blood sugar is normal. I lost my allergy meds and inhalers, My inflammation in my knees and hips is gone. I can have fun again. I am 57 years old. I have 6 grand children with one on the way. I taught my grand kids to Stand up paddle board this summer.. I FEEL Good. This summer has been so amazing. I plan to lose 30 more pounds and weigh what I did in my 20's . I no longer feel that it is impossible.

        • Thanks for the compliments guys!
          Goosejuggler- Yup. Failed... plain and simple. :P
          Patrick- that's exactly what I'm going for.
          Saoirse- I was kind of shocked and excited that the skin does spring back eventually, it just takes a while. My youngest is 2 1/2 and I'm hoping as time goes by it'll just get better!

          Bosstycoon- You seriously look like s different man. Rock on!
          Hawk- Way to go! Can't wait to see your pics once they are approved.

              I hear that, Larry! It's the same with me. I find I need to cut myself some slack and just relax. It's easy to become a bit obsessed after seeing a lot of progress only to watch that progress taper off over time.
