[QUOTE=PrimalClay;726032]I have been asked a few times for some full body pictures since I posted my 120+ pound weight loss pictures and Primal couple at Christmas photos but I have never really goten around to it.
Tonight I found an awesome bacon t-shirt at Target and thought to heck with it, might as well bug my wife to take a couple shots.
For reference I put some late 2010 pictures in. I was around 340 pounds, in 5 months I lost 100 pounds and over the last 13 months I am down about 130 ish. On the scale I am still around 220 but have been weight lifting a lot. As long as the size 36 jeans stay baggy I am happy. I would like to drop some more but I am taking it nice and slow now.
So without further ado I present me, 20 minutes ago, after a long day at work and then with the 3 small kids and pregnant wife, after big dinner, and shot with an Iphone (not exactly glamour shots). I had to flex btw, I am after all wearing a bacon shirt!
DUDE! Nice work. Seriously.

Well der.....It's called humour.
primalclay - you're looking awesome. Your calves and forearms especially are looking super muscular. You have the best success story by far that I've seen on this site. And I love your reasons for achieving what you've achieved.
Holy crap... go you, everybody!
Are these last two posters bots?
I just can't see the pictures that they post, they are brand new, their names are similarly configured, and they show up often in threads together.
Yepper...huge problem on this board for some reason.
wow, your after pic looks like it was taken years before! Congrats :)
How do you get the nerve to take your "before" picture? I have been avoiding the camera for years. I really feel I should take a "before" picture so I can see how far I've come ... when I get there, of course. But I look bad enough in the mirror. And cameras always make you look even worse so ... ugh!

It's a before pic. You are supposed to look bad! And the worse you look "Before", the better it makes your "After" look!! I guess you just have to call it a leap of faith- faith in yourself and the fact that PB works!
I never actually took a before picture for the same reasons. All the pictures I do have were random family type pictures I just happened to have been caught in.
In retrospect I wish I had taken one as it is easy to forget where you started and how far you have come.
I had been a little down lately (frustrated with yet another plateau) and when I found some old full body pictures (one from a mall and one from a family get together) I was shocked as I never thought of or remember myself being "that big." It really cheered me up when I used my little paintbrush program to put a new full body vs an old. Really gave me a better perspective on it.
