    I guess I would just like to get lean now. I am about 20 pounds from where I would like to be (goal is around 200 pounds). I have lost about 7 pounds of fat since that last november picture. I actually updated that picture yesterday with a december pic but didn't post it. Hate to start posting every month.

    I hit it hard in the gym 5 days a week with particular emphasis on weight training and light cardio and also go on a lot of walks and jogs after work. I just try to never give up.

    I have to admit the other day was the first time I have not felt fat or heavy, just normal. I just randomly realized it on my way to the gym. Was a nice moment.

    Wow! Thanks for posting! I'm down 60 pounds over the past year and really have another 200 to go before I'll be where I'd like to be...I'm worried a ton about having saggy, loose skin. Basically, you attribute your success at avoiding that to prayer, weights, and light cardio? I can do all three of those!

    Starting BF%: 43%
    Current weight: 490
    Goal: 230 @ 10% BF (preferably less)

    Wow! I'm just beginning my Primal journey, again. I have 100# to lose, as well. Finding your success story is very inspiring. Primal Clay because your name is Clay, or you're a clay artist?

    Thanks again to all. I am still plugging along. Hope to post some more pics soon. I have a 5 year old, a 3 yr old, an 18 month old, and my wife is 3 months pregnant. By the time I get home from work and the kids go to sleep there never seems to be much time or energy left for some glamour shots :-) I am doing well to stay on 2 feet usually. My wife has always been a stay at home mom so its my show from the time I get home especially with her low energy levels and morning sickness that for her is an all day and night sickness.

    I still lift weights for an hour each day at lunch (Mon - Fri) and go on 1.5 to 3 mile walks each night (after 9pm) with some sprinting across the soccer field by my house a few times (2 to 3 times a week). I still eat strictly Primal for the most part (probably 95%). I often get frustrated wishing I could do more in regards to biking, hiking, nature walks, rock climbing, etc.. but then I remember the my main starting motivation at 340 pounds was to get healthy so I could have more energy for my family. So fitness and nutrition remain important to me but in the end I try to not loose sight that all I have done to change was so I could be a better husband and father.

    In the end I will never win a beauty contest or be a fitness model but I will be a better man than I started out as.

    Wow! You have done a fantastic job. Your story can give all of us encouragement.

    Hope your wife is double primal:-) That's a lot of kids quickly, and her body's going to need a lot of nourishment (once she gets over morning sickness, of course). Hope that goes away asap.

    Thanks for the pictures. If you don't like mirrors -- I so relate -- you can look at those. I used to be rather photogenic. Now, pictures make me look worse than I do in mirrors. Weird.

    I put a few full body shots finally after a few suggestions. I just added them in the before and after thread so who knows how long it will take for them to be approved.
