  • @mandabear: AMAZING! You're gorgeous in all the pics, but you look so much younger now! What an inspiration!

      • Rivvin, that's awesome. Yo ulook so much healthier now, never mind all the weight and strength! ANd yeah, I totally let myself go when I got fat b/c I just "knew" that there was no way to look good, so why bother at all?

        Bostonbull, still waiting for those picture approvals!

        BTW, how do y'all get pictures posted inline without needing approvals? I wouldn't want to post links to offsite pics; I prefer them inline, but I notice some have approvals and some don't.

            Haha I can't give myself a break because I looked like a smaller version of Kevin Smith, and not in a good way!

            • You just look like a slacker because you're still wearing your fat clothes. (I do the same thing) ha ha

              Lookin' good under that tire though, man. I guess you have to do something to burn those goddamned berries you insist on eating every morning!!

              • It's official... berries are not only magically delicious, they also provide tire lifting power!

                    I can see them if I click on them until they get approved. Is that only possible if you post them?

                    It's been like 7 hours since I posted my pics and still not approved. What the heck.

                              • Worst, Before, (4 months primal) and Now... My During.

                                All Hail the Primal People,

                                I was at my heaviest in April 2006 when I went to The Path class with Steve Barnes and Scott Sonnon, and was inspired to re-write my life into a happy story.

                                It was April 2006, and I was size 46 and massed 260lbs. BF% unknown.


                                Since then I've lost 60+lbs and 12 inches off of waist. Treating my life like all the parts MUST be in balance has been making steady improvements as I go, and I can't imagine why I would ever stop striving down the balanced and braided path... it is all finally coming together.

                                I was still eating Conventionally, but I took up Intermittent Fasting and it started re-writing my body shape. It took me from size 46 to size 40. And then I got kinda stuck there.

                                Then, you guessed it, while reading about variations on IF, i found that it was part of a greater Primal Blueprint scheme that made both great intuitive sense, and solid sense in terms of metabolism and biochemistry.

                                I was working as a research assistant in a mitochondria-centric lab then, and was occasionally teased about how brainscans on certain groups of IF rats showed what was likely happening to my brain too.

                                I started Primal on April 3rd, 2010 @ 216lbs 33.8%BF.

                                I'm taking photos and weighing in every Thursday, unless I am on the road.

                                August 5th: 196lbs 30.5%BF



                                4 Months of Primal Progress:
                                April 1st: 216lbs 33.8%BF
                                (started Primal on April 3rd)
                                April 8th: 212lbs 33.0%BF
                                April 15: 211lbs 32.9%BF
                                April 23: 210lbs 32.8%BF
                                April 29: 209lbs 32.7%BF
                                May 6th: 207lbs 32.4%BF
                                May 13: 205lbs 32.2%BF
                                May 20: 206lbs 32.0%BF
                                May 27: 204lbs 32.0%BF
                                June 3: 202lbs 31.5%BF
                                June 10: 203lbs 31.7%BF
                                June 17: 202lbs 31.2%BF
                                June 24: 204lbs 31.9%BF
                                July 1st: 201lbs 31.6%BF
                                July 8th: 202lbs 31.6%BF
                                July 15th: 203lbs 31.1%BF
                                July 22nd: 202lbs 31.7%
                                July 29nd: 200lbs 31.4%BF
                                August 5th: 196lbs 30.5%BF

                                So I'm down 20lbs, AND down 3.3%BF since April Fool's Day this year.
                                Goal by wintertime: 180lbs, keeping and building muscle... Don't know what my BF will be at that point.

                                I think I may be in the second stages of adaptation to the Primal Paleo Diet,
                                if so, it may be even easier from now on to get more energy out of my adipose (m)ass.
