I was 62 in May and started Primal Light in early March. I am 5"11" and was 240lbs. I was on two medications for blood pressure, a statin and an inhaler twice a day for late onset asthma. Began by just cutting out grains and doing HIT rowing twice or three times a week. After a couple of months I'd lost 10lbs and noticed my blood pressure had dropped. E-mailed my doctor and asked which drug I should come off. Endeavoured to persevere and when I'd lost another 10lbs with blood pressure still doing fine, sent an e-mail stating I was giving up the other BP pills.
In June I read Body by Science and added strength training to the rowing. I weighed 190lbs this morning and I am pleased with my weight progress. I bought You are Your Own Gym week before last and thought I would give up walking the mile to the gym and workout at home. Did the first day's basic session on Monday and have been stiff since. Obviously I'm going to have to work up to even the basic level. That said, I have got ideas for an exercise regime that will eventually bring me up to speed. I'm in no tearing hurry, just so long as I keep making progress.
I reckon I've still got some 20lbs of flab on me but if I put on muscle, the weight loss will likely slow up and I am prepared for that. SWMBO is away babysitting the grandchildren for a week so I can really cut down on the carbs and do some intermittent fasting. On that note, I had nothing to eat from lunch yesterday until lunch today. Unfortunately, she has left bananas in the house and I can not see my way to letting them rot.
Nice to read other people's success stories.
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
