  • I posted my success story awhile ago, but I wanted to share Katie's Success Story because I am so very proud of this young lady for how far she has come and with such tenacity has overcome more than most.

        Now (January 2013)
        ~230 lbs, size 13

        I lost a few inches since the last picture was taken - almost a pants size -, but didn't lose any weight.
        I'm not relying on the scale anymore to track my progress, since I do a lot of heavy weightlifting and I'm definitely building muscle.
        I take my measurements every month instead, it's way more reliable to me!
        When I started weightlifting, doing 2 air squats was painful. After a year of training and 8-9 months of primal, my 1 rep max back squat is now 93 lbs!
        I lost MANY inches everywhere, the most noticeable being my thighs : over 6 inches per leg!

        Primal lifestyle helped me get rid of joint pain, asthma, seasonal allergies, depression and so much more! It gave me my life back.

        • Oh wow, you folks are amazing! I see some really great transformations going on here; I feel like mine is peanuts in comparison. But, I'm going to post it anyway and consider this a new starting point.

          I don't remember how much I weighed here, but this is when I was in the worst shape I'd ever been. I was weak and had a significant amount of jiggle. I wasn't thrilled with my body, but I didn't pay it much attention either.

          This is New Years Eve 2013. I'd lost 30lbs since my heaviest of 201 and had a 250lb deadlift. I feel like a new person.

          My transformation may not be as drastic as some of yours, but I feel like I've shed an old, dull shell and now I can start living up to my true potential. My posture is better, I have more energy, more confidence, and a more positive outlook on life. I consider this my new "before." From here, my goal is to get as strong as I can, and to fulfill my New Year's Resolution to get more sunshine and fresh air.

          Thank you all for the inspiration!!!

          • The before pictures are a little gross if you're not into man fat:

            Before is from November 2011, Age 47, 5'11", 316 pounds, size 42 relaxed fit Levi 550's were snug, should have been wearing 44.

            After is from January 2013, 209 pounds, size 38 regular fit Levi 505 are a perfect fit:







            Did the "leptin reset" for the first few months, then just stayed low carb primal (well below 50g daily average) after that.

            Keep in mind during this period I did no HIIT or working out at ALL, just an increase in my walking (1 mile/day give or take). For the last six months or so, I've been doing a half-assed form of IF in that I usually ate a huge breakfast, always skipped lunch, never snacked, and dinner was only a few times per week.

            Yesterday's weekly weigh-in (Mar 31) put me at 199.2 pounds, and my big personal goal was getting below 200, so I'm pretty damn pleased. Also down to a size 36 505 jean, and they need a belt.

            Sorry, no recent pictures, but most of the loss since January seems to have come from below the waist, so I don't look that much different than the "after" pictures above.

                • you're shrinking and getting swole all at the same time
                  beautiful
                  yeah you are

                  Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
                  lol

                            You have definitely made progress, Gadsie. What are your workouts like? I will suggest that if you want your body to have a bit more presence regarding perception of size, I would add a focus to lateral raises and shrugs. Also, become a proficient deadlifter since it will help with overall development as well as squats if you can do them with proper technique, if not, go for split squats and leg press.

                            • Thanks, it's just that it has been like 9-10 months and I think my progress is relatively very slow. I do starting strength by the way so plenty of squats and deadlifts
                              well then
