[quote=kakes;965130]okay guys, (almost) 9 months primal! Feeling amazing, super active and happy. 4 kids worth of stretch marks have turned into tiger stripes. :)
You look so strong, amazing and happy Kakes! So very inspired by you :D

Ok Here we go again with my success...
Last November 2011 converted to paleo (211lbs)
October 2012 current (188lbs)
Nice job Bosstycoon!!
you guys are looking great!
Kakes- your abs look awesome and you're an inspiration to me. I too have some mean tiger stripes, but it's nice to see how your skin has tightened as you've lost fat.
BTW Icarian, I know you didn't post an "after", but you look like a beast in your avatar. Meow!
Gotta say threads like this inspires me to workout even though winter is comin..
Kakes, Fabulous Job! Love the abs and the bikini.
Bosstycoon, Amazing, Congratulations.
I got serious about my health after I saw my wedding pictures. I had hit a high of 255 lbs, and didn't really like what I was seeing:

I started severely restricting carbs in July 2011 - on my own because I hadn't found MDA yet. I didn't take any "before" shots probably because I wasn't too happy with how I looked with my shirt off.
This is a couple of months later and about a size smaller

And this is where I am now:

I'm at about 195 after 15 months or so, and I've been plateaued for a while. But my new-ish exercise program (60% boxing, 40% cross-fit) is moving the mass around a bit.
All in all, I'm happy with my progress. The funny thing is that I'm far more aware of my current spare tire than I was of all the extra weight I used to carry around. Go figure.
