    OMG, y'all! Who pays for my new clothes?

    As I haven't begun a journal, this is going to have to suffice.

    When I began Primal on August 22nd, I weighed in at 218 pounds, and even my size 40 waist pants were beginning to get a little snug. Was not liking that at all. Here is a photo of my wife and I taken on August 15th. See that spare tire?? Of course you do .. can't miss it! Conversely, my wife (who is 60) has been a chronic cardio person for as long as I've known her (28 years). But, as you can see, she's in great shape.



    So my clothes have been more than a little loose-fitting for the last week, so I decide to go try on some new clothes today, and guess what?!?!? I have gone from an XL shirt to a Medium, and I can now fit comfortably into size 36 jeans! I am utterly ecstatic! How ecstatic? Look at this shot from today (9/14)!



    The jeans I have on in this photo are size 38, but as you can see, they are drooping. But I was so impressed with how my body has transformed in such a short period of time, that I couldn't help but whip out the iPhone for a quick snapshot. Bottom line is that I am going to need some new clothes. So Mark, if you're listening, I could use a few hundred bucks for a new wardrobe!!

    Now, I ask you ... do I look like a 56 year old quadruple bypass survivor? Well, maybe I look 56, but I don't think anyone would guess regarding my surgery if I my scar was covered.

    I could not be happier! Thank you, Mark Sisson! Y'all Grok On!

    You look great! You're about my dad's age, I wish he was in as good a shape as you are (haven't figured out the best way to introduce a primal way of eating to him yet).

    Well, it's just sticking to the plan. I fully expect a plateau any day now ... I will just have to work harder/smarter. :-)

    Thanks much! Show him my photos ... and tell him that I had bypass surgery at age 50, at which point, I stopped smoking after 32 years. Just wish I had known about Primal/Paleo back then. Would have made things so much easier.

    There is life after 50 ... I just hope there is a lot more of it! <grin>

    The hair and eyeglasses gives it away. LOL! I've often been asked if I am a TV preacher because of my hair.

    But I am enjoying the wave right now ... I'm sure I'll hit a wall at some point, but sure would like to get below 200 first. :-) But the one thing I am thrilled about more than anything is that I am seeing a faint hint of my abs ... something I have never seen in my lifetime!
