Today I have mixed emotions about beginning this journey once again. First off I cant believe I stopped following this way of eating, and cant imagine the results I would have had, if I had only stayed the course with MDA/Primal. I was feeling great eating MDA a few months back, but wasnt seeing the weight loss I was thinking I should have been seeing.
So wouldnt you know it, I went back to other methods of "better eating", and ended up actually gaining weight, and feeling like a beached whale.
The wife and I signed up for a cruise that takes place in early November, and thought that would be a great goal for getting back in shape. I dont expect to be centerfold for playgirl by then, but would like to be comfortable around the pool, and the destination beaches.
Here is some information about myself. I am 42 years old. 5'9", 268 pounds. I have no medical problems, take no medications, but I'm sure my blood pressure is a bit higher than it should be. Im in relatively decent shape for the big belly I am pushing around on a daily basis. A month or so ago, I decided to run a 5K, and did quite well, for the very little bit of running I had been doing leading up to the race.
I am looking to hearing from other 40 something guys, who have been succesful with MDA, as I am looking to take lessons learned from each of you. My goal is to lose 40 pounds by November 11th, which is the date of our cruise.
