I'm going through the posts I missed for the last two months or so, and had to stop to say GRAVYBOAT - SO happy you posted your progress, and so happy for all the amazing health changes you're experiencing!!
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).
