Here are my 'before' and 'during' pics. I'm 5 ft 3, aged 41. The 'Before' was taken in June 2011, a couple of weeks into primal, weighing in at about 180 lbs. I'd already lost about 16 lbs through chronic cardio.
The 'Durings' were taken earlier today (31 Dec 2011), weighing in at 164 lbs.
I'm still doing lots of cardio but have switched to interval training to make it more primal, have built a lot more strength-building and yoga into my gym workouts, as well as taking up fitness hula hooping, which I mostly do outdoors in a park. I walk quite a bit, doing a 5+ mile walk most weekends.
My target weight is around 145 lbs - I'll see how I feel when I get thereabouts. My legs are naturally very muscular, and I am small-boned. I find it difficult to lose weight during October to March so my strategy is to gain muscle and maintain my weight during those months and during the spring/summer to lose weight at a healthy pace (around 2-5 lbs a month).
I'm pescatarian and most of my protein comes from wild pacific salmon, sheeps and goats cheese and eggs.
Love this thread. Happy New Year everyone.
