Well, last year I hopped on the Paleo/Primal bandwagon on April 1, 2013. At the time, the scale wouldn't register me. After 2 weeks, it finally weighed me at 350 lbs. I knew it must be working since the scale finally registered. The first few months went great. I was dropping weight by following the Blue Print and lifting weights and bike riding. September came around and I had 2 bachelor parties, then 3 weddings in October. Eating didn't go so well (according to my new found health knowledge). My diet stayed healthier than it had been prior to primal though. Pretty much just maintained through Christmas and New Years, then got back on board New Year's Day. On April 1, 2014 I had my 1 year primal anniversary. I'm down around 260 and I would assume I'm right around 100-105 lbs lost in the year. I wish I had been able to find a scale to measure me when I started. I love the primal lifestyle and have noticed how much happier and healthier I feel when I stick to the Blue Print and avoid CW. My goal for the upcoming year is to get to 200, but I honestly believe that by sticking to the plan I could be around 180-190 by this time next year. It's hard to believe how well this works. When I was in 8th grade, 12-13 years ago, I wrestled in the heavy weight division that was capped at 230 lbs. I struggled to make weight every week and resorted to starving myself for days before matches. Thinking that I could possibly weigh less this year than I did during an excruciating time period of starvation and chronic exercise while eating so much, blows my mind. I will be posting my before and during pictures before too long!
