    Down 139 pounds in 18 months

    Primal Fuel
    Hi to all you paleo folks.
    Thanks to this site and others like it I have lost 139 pounds in the 18 months since the death of my wife.
    Her death prompted me to make a change in my life. That change has evolved into the paleo diet.
    I've put my story down in a blog. See it at: Dan's Low Carb Journey
    I've went form a 4X shirt to a medium, from a 52" pants to a 34". I'm still losing weight. I feel great, and I love the food. FREEDOM!

    Wow, huge congrats! And condolences about the loss of a loved one. It sounds like you've been on quite a journey, I am looking forwards to reading more about it.

    I am sorry to hear that the death of your wife is what prompted you to lose weight, but I think it's wonderful that you turned that into a positive motivation to lose weight. Congrats!

    Thanks. The quick answer is, EAT MEAT. My diet has evolved as I've become more educated on the subject. Like most I lived the low fat, high carb life. It was killing me. One word describes how how I feel now, FREEDOM! Freedom from the lies, and the addictions.

    Nice stuff.
    I also lost my 18 lbs weight in 1 month by doing rope jumping. I think rope jumping is awesome exercise which you could loss your maximum weight. My doctor says that 20 minutes of rope jumping is equal to 1 mile running.

    I would love to read your whole story in Mark's Success Stories series. Congratulations.
