    I wasn't in the "morbidly" category but at 210lbs, size 16 and 5'10" I was by the BMI scale and by my opinion, obese.
    Now I am 145, and size 6 so 65 pound gone. This is back to how I used to look in high school when I surfed all the time.
    Better yet, I'm holding here.

    Yes, it is possible.

    I was "morbidly obese" according to the BMI thing, 242 pounds at my fattest; Ive lost 114 pounds, nearly to goal weight. I was a size 22, now I wear a size zero jeans, dress size 4.

    On the loose skin issue; the only place I have *noticible* loose skin is my belly, it hangs a little and obscures what is (I swear) a wicked 6 pack under there. However, I credit two huge babies with that skin sack at least as much as the fatness. It is slooowwwly improving. I'm going to give it another year and re-evaluate. It's really not nearly as bad as it could have been, under clothes I think my waistline could look a lot thinner without it but its only noticeable when I am naked (which I never am in public ) or if I wore a teeny bikini. My arms and legs sustained only the slightest bit of bagginess you would have to really search for and know it was there to even notice.

    Amazing results! I have hope (though I'm 10 years older than when you started).

    You look fabulous!

    I also wasn't morbidly obese (or I didn't think so) but started 11/12/11 at 220 and this morning was 153 and still only 18% body fat. This was the easiest thing I've ever done and is really just a new life for me instead of a diet.
    Don't just survive....THRIVE!!!

    Great work, ruby, and amazing results! I haven't had children, yet the skin around my belly is quite loose, when I bend over (not very noticeable otherwise, I think). But I do see it's not just skin, but there's fat hanging on to it, it's just that the whole thing is looser than I would like it and not very esthetic looking... Well, I have to give it more time, I don't have any other options.

    I was morbidly obese in December 2011, at 170kg (approximately 375lb). I limited my eating portions up until I was 150kg (330lb) 2 months ago, and jumped both feet into the primal diet. I'm now steadily losing 5kg (12lb) a month, and my target is to get to at least 120kg (265lb) by September 2012. My ideal weight according to the BMI thingy should be around 80~85kg (175lb), but if I manage to get to 100kg (220lb) I'll be a happy, happy man. Heavy bones and all that.

    Current weight is 138.8kg (306lb). I went from wearing 54" to 50" pants since I started 12 years ago after high school, I was wearing 38" pants. I want to get back there again!

    I don't know if I was morbidly obese but I was 5 foot 11 and 340 pounds. I lost 105 pounds in 5 months and eventually ended up losing around 120 pounds on the scale (around 135 to 140 of fat). I lift weights almost every day and it has helped a lot with the body composition changes. I stay pretty Primal for the most part. On average I move about 8 to 10 miles a day (around 22 to 25,000 steps on my pedometer) and also swim and bike when I can.

    I have to admit there are times (vacations etc..) when I deviate a bit on the diet but to be honest I have seen little to no change in my weight. I figure as long as I am super active and being primal 90% of the time I have nothing to worry about.
    Went Primal January 24, 2011
    Lost 105 pounds in 5 months
    Currently 130 fat pounds down which is 120 pounds on the scale while putting on 10 pounds of muscle
    According to my kids I am looking more and more like the Hulk every day
