    Our anniversary January, 2011...



    2012...

    2013....

    ann13q.jpg

    At the same cooking school "date night" anniversary date as in the 2011 pic, taken last night.

    So, two years into this. I'm about 15 lbs heavier this year than the year before. Most of that in my legs and ass if I had to guess. I spent the year gradually turning my garage into a gym and transitioning from Primal Blueprint Fitness body weight stuff to lifting weights. I didn't get as lean as I'd hoped, but it's safe to say that at the age of 36, I'm in the best shape of my life... I was 310~ in the first pic, 215 in the second, 230~ now.

    My wife is a trooper, she's done an amazing job.

        • Ah pre-menses bloat and feeling pretty down, look on here and feel motivated again!

          All look fab!

          Got piccy from Boxing day, where I ran into the north sea for charrrity, twice (i really loved it) After this sea dip I went for a 3 mile hike up the hills. Its a mini success story in itself because I have hardly done any exercise at all this year (hypothyroid) Apparently, going from UK size 12/14 to a uk18/20 in a few months and existing like a sloth is "normal" ...Ordered some natural thyroid (and some decent hiking boots) and gunna get on with it : )

          So heres my piccy of my starting state...if it works...

          Also, on this day of pic, I gave up smoking cold turkey. Sea air so good, dip so invigorating that smoking was pahhhhhhh. Quit, jus like that

              • tcb, your wife looks like a completely different person! And you look thinner at 230 than you did at 215. You guys look amazing!

                        Thanks. We enjoy doing date night at the cooking school... we just have to be patient and wait for a night that is mostly paleo. I wind up eating at some of the better restaurants in the area quite often with work, so we enjoy the change of pace of going to the cooking school on special occasions.

                        This time we did, salad with a lemon pepper vinagrette, a porterhouse, mashed potatos, asparagus bisque and a chocolate raspberry tart. I've never been a fruit flavored desert kinda guy, so I ate a Lindt 85% bar when we got back to the house. Good stuff.

                          This is my story. I wasn't sure the best way to put it here so I am inserting a link with my story and pictorial journey. I hope it will stir encouragement for those starting on this journey.....and for those entering the second half of a century....your goals are attainable.

                              Awesome. I just made 36 in November, so we probably had a bit of overlap during our times in Starkvegas.

                              • When I read TCB, for whatever reason I thought it was his wife talking. And I thought "no way that girl is 230" lol

                                Then I realized that he was talking about the guy in the picture, and his wife probably does weigh a lot less. Both look great.
