Hey everyone. It may be a bit premature, but I am pleased with my early progress (which by this thread's measure probably only counts as "moderate"). After doing the cliched New Year's resolution to go primal, I have lost 22 lbs in two months. Down just 7 lbs in February, where I took more than half of the month off primal when I traveled to Australia and was less than perfect in the two days after returning. So losing over 7 lbs (considering that I must have gained significantly during my non-primal time) in just two weeks of good eating is fine with me.
The freaking wife, though. She is a freak. I'd say that since I started, she has probably been 60 - 70% primal. At 5 foot 8 inches, she initially weighed in at 118 lbs, and yesterday she weighed in at 111 lbs! I couldn't believe it. I didn't think that she had that much to lose. She wants to try to get down to about 105 (she obviously has a very slight frame), and I think she'll probably be able to.
At the beginning of this diet change, she complained that there weren't many examples of women in her position. Relatively thin, but wanting to lose the last 5 to 15 lbs. So if anyone out there that matches this description happens to be reading, just know that it is possible.
Here are comparison shots from January 3 to today. The "after" shots were taken this morning after a massive cheat night last night (sicilian pizza, mozzarella sticks, beer, a little ice cream). I feel like I've gained ever ounce back, but I think we can see true progress. Check them out.
So cheers, everyone. Keep up the good work!
I definitely see progress there, Freaker. Make sure you work on your posture as well, so as to avoid the rounded shoulders. :)
Waaaaaiiiiit a second there...your wife is 5'8" and wants to weigh 105 lbs???? Is that even possible? I mean, I'm roughly 5'6" and am aiming to get to 140. Are you sure you meant 105? :eek:
what method did you use to attach pics? I see yours but others are still pending approval and I think mine are too.
TOTAL difference by the way. Great job :)
He said she started at 118. I'm shocked she wants to lose anything!!! lol But hey kudos for going primal and healthy
[QUOTE=Drea6681;738997]OK so i stated lurking here back in the fall when i first discovered Primal, went off the wagon around the holidays but have been back on and loving it for a couple months now. So I decided it was time to be brave and post some before and after pics. the first two (Im in the striped sweater) are pictures that scared the bejeezus out of me and made me get back on. The second two are this morning after two months of pretty strict primal, one month of regular yoga and almost two weeks of no drinking :) Still a ways to go but this is great progress i think. Note in the second pictures I am flexing my abs (not sucking in though lol)
Wow you can really see a big difference. Great job.[COLOR="#FF0000"][/COLOR]
