    So I never have posted pics except for my journal, because frankly y'all look great in swimwear and I ummm, amd still embarassed. But I just finished Whole 30 and am proud. So I was going thru old photos, and it occured to me that while, no I don't look good naked, I look great in clothes compared to the past. I am posting a progression of pics, the last one in the series was after failing to lose doing Insanity and starving myself. Not a huge difference from the one just out of college..... By the way, if anyone ever tries to tell you veganism is great for weight loss.... first pic in the fat row is of me in my vegan days. The last pic in the top row is of me this morning after noshing on bacon.

    My dream is to post a pic of me in a bikini, but that will come later.
    Mag I am so glad you posted before/after pics. I was wondering when you were gonna do it. You have done a fantastic job. Keep it up. Don't play us on the bikini pics either we'll hold you to it.

    I am thinking about posting some before and after pics of me. But I am not done with my DILF transformation. I am in the process of adding some more muscles before I unveil the final product. I still have a fatboy frame of mind so posting pics with my shirt off is still a lil nerve racking.

        • Mommymd, you lost weight and about 10 years....
          And Primalbetty, yeah.... way to look like a lingerie model.

          What astonishes me about the pics here is how much YOUNGER people always look. Not only do people shrink, they lose years.

          Check out my blog. Hope to share lots of great recipes and ideas!


          • Well, darn. I'll have to go move thse to a different site, and try aggain

            • RaeVynn, it may take a while for your pics to be approved. You might do better using the image link and a photo site like Photobucket.

              • Ah, thank you. Didn't realize they got the dreaded "must be approved" note.

                  My gut is gradually disappearing. I haven't been lifting much for the past 7 months but I just started a new routine yesterday and I can't wait to see what changes it will bring!
                  I am still slimming down slowly, although my deflated spare tire isn't going easily! I am down around 10 more pounds since that last picture with pretty much zero effort.

                  I wish I liked to eat liver.


                  • RaeVynn, wow! You can definitely see the changes, not only in size but in shape. You have more of a waist now.

                    • Thank you. I need to get a more recent photo up... my face actually looks better now, as I've been eating more primal, and getting more essential fatty acids, my skin looks a lot better.


                      • Unique, that picture concerns me, and I'll tell you why. That's exactly what my body looks like. The reason it concerns me is because I'm not an otherwise healthy person. After all I've been through in the past year, I know pretty definitely that I have some sort of gastrointestinal problem, possibly an ulcer. I'm seeing a specialist for it this month. I also have insanely low B12 and folate, and my testosterone's half or less of what I'd like it to be.

                        Slowly over the months I've lost both the desire and the energy to sustain the most modest body weight workouts, just basic PBF stuff, and I'm unable to pack on any significant amount of lean mass, and as a result, I have that same spare tire/sunken waist thing going on. I reached my goal weight and then kept losing. I'm 6', 150 lbs and I still have a good amount of abdominal and thigh fat, while the rest of me is just skin and bones. I can't sit on a stone bench anymore without hurting my back, and even my forearms look emaciated. I could grab my pelvis and hand it to you. I've seen skinny women with fuller shoulders than me.

                        I don't mean to offend you at all, and if you're otherwise healthy I apologize for saying all this, but when I look at you, all I see is me and it makes me wonder if everything is alright. Any depression/anxiety, GI problems, muscle weakness/general lethargy, anger/irritability?

                        Hopefully someone can chime in with an opinion on the sunken waist thing - if that's just genetically determined body composition or a sign of muscle wasting. I mean, my mother told me my waist now is the same size as hers on her wedding day. And she's a tiny woman. Again, absolutely no offense intended with any of this. I'm mostly worried about myself here.

                        • Hi Groks and Grokettes!
                          I was planning to wait until the 6 month mark to post pics but I took some today and noticed a bit of a difference and I'm only 16 days away from the 6 month mark anyway so here goes...

                          I started the PB on May 18th 2012 at 85.5kg (188.1lb), but didn't take this first picture (in green bikini) until July 2nd at 82.5kg (181.5lb)
                          The second picture (black) was taken today, November 2nd, and I am at 75.5kg (166.1lb), so I have lost overall 10kg/22lb, but there is a 7kg/15.4lb difference between the photos.

                          BTW I haven't lost my tan since going Primal - the light in the first picture is off (it's only just warming up where I live in Australia).

                          I hope you can notice a difference too and it's not just me!

                          (Also hoping the links work, using Flickr for the first time).

                            • not much of a difference, but I think my "thinness" is slwoly fading
                              well then


                              • Dude, that's a big difference! You look great!
