    Where do I begin? Last New Years day (2011) I woke up depressed and dIsgusted with myself. Got on the scale and was horrified to see I weighed 332 lbs and 52.5% body fat. I have never been that heavy in my life. So I decided to do something about it. A lot of my friends had been doing Paleo for a while and I started reading and found Mark. I dove head first into Primal and it has changed my life. 3 months into my life style change at the coaxing from a friend I started doing Crossfit. So fast forward to today and a year later. I have lost 121 pounds and am down to 20.5% body fat. I am happy and healthy and can't believe I lived my life like I had in the past.
    Thank you mark for everything.

    Wow Scgi2000! That's phenomenal!!

    I'm down 8lbs in 3 weeks! Turned down horrible food choices (pizza, chips, wretched Girl Scout Cookies!) on 3 occasions in past few weeks and don't even miss it! Don't feel hungry! SO much more energy! Deadlifted 95# in Crossfit a week ago. After 250 squats in another CF session, I was still able to sit and pee for the next few days after! LOL! Now THAT'S PROGRESS!!!

    Keep it up. It just gets better from here. I love Crossfit. I've more than doubled my strength in 9 months.

    Nah - even those don't taste good to me anymore, Josh. They don't even *sound* good. And I used to eat them by the dozen.

    *respect*

    There are those of us who cannot snack, and I certainly am one of them, but to not respect the fact that GSA fight for equality and gay rights, is awesome and is worthy in my eyes.

    You might catch me eating a thin mint.

    It was pretty much my childhood, and why I was obese haha.

    Today's triumph? Declining any snacking and just drinking some coffee with full fat creamer for lunch.

    After my daughter was born, I packed away my interview suit because it was a smidge too small and I wasn't going to use it for awhile anyway. Got it on and tried it today and it fits perfectly!
