    Gotta Say Hello! Primal has helped me lose almost 40lbs so far

    Primal Fuel
    -Can I get a mod to please fix this thread title?-

    Hello all. I'll make this fast.

    Heaviest - 270lbs
    Now - 182lbs

    I've been lurking here for a long time, so I eventually decided to dive in. I lost about 45lbs (miserably) CW style , by just simply cutting calories...then I got stuck and was looking for an answer. I found PB through a friend, did some reading, and it made total sense.

    So from about 220lbs to now, it's been all PB. This has taken about 4 months, and I'm not stopping. I'm hoping to continue to drop my body fat % and just keep feeling awesome.

    My sport of choice is rock climbing, which has been a huge motivating factor for me.

    Awesome! If you have some before pictures, i would hang onto them. You'll likely end up being featured by Mark on a friday post. Just remember that if you plateau, there are ALWAYS things you can do to get yourself out of it, so don't be discouraged if that happens.

    Congrats on your success!!

    2 questions for you:

    1. Would you be interested in writing up your success story so I can place it on my blog? Almost 100 lbs is extremely significant! Starting this Sunday I will have a success story or some other form of inspiration.

    2. What type of rock climbing? If there are types? I plan on starting rock climbing this summer and will be bringing my GR Primal Tribe with me!

    Keep up the great work dude!
    Find me at aToadontheRoad.com. Cheers!

    If I can find some I'll keep them around. I tried to stay away from cameras if I could. That would be cool to be featured.

    1. Absolutely, PM me about it.
    2. Sport climbing. Focuses on harder moves on shorter routes. Very powerful and dynamic when compared to a lot of the big walls that most folks associate with climbing. Hell man, maybe I could come up there and we could get some primal climbing going on. And yes, there are many different types of climbing.

    I'll post some pictures of me climbing later, I can't upload them here at work.
