    Thanks again for the comments, everyone.

    As for my workouts, I actually want to get off my butt and work harder, I think I'm pretty much on the low end of what I should be doing. Walking every day, and 2-3 times per week those walks are about 1 to 1 1/4 hours. The longer ones I'm going up and down some pretty steep hills, sometimes sprinting up them. Once in a while I'll pop on a weighed vest I have that's 18 pounds to add some resistance. 2-3 times a week I'll alternate sets of pullups and pushups, do some lunges and single leg squats, etc. Just kind of whenever I feel like it.

    Part of me wonders what progress I'd have achieved if I put a little more effort into the workouts. But that's ok, after this weekend of relaxing I plan on kicking my ass into phase 2 and really pushing myself.

    The other thing I do that I think helps a lot, is I never sit down. When I'm on the computer at work I'll stand now, I walk around while having coffee, I stand at my counter at home to use the computer, I go to the stairs when I'm bored and bang out some calf raises. I'll stand on my tip toes the entire time I'm shaving, brushing my teeth, etc. I can't stand (ha) sitting down anymore. It makes me feel like a sloth. Apart from driving, eating meals with my family, and uh, getting rid of said meals, I'm either standing up or sleeping.

    Sorry, no magic exercise program here, I'm actually kind of embarrassed at how little I do!

    Well I said I was going to wait another month or so before participating in this thread but I think I'll do it now and just update if needed later. I'm assuming fat loss is going to start to slow down from here on out. I still want to lose more.

    My starting weight was 172, on January 26th, 2010. This was taken on 2-26-10 which would have been almost exactly a month into PB, and according to my journal I was around 162-163lbs, my journal entry was on March 1st so maybe closer to 164lbs, still almost 10lbs lost before I decided to document my progress as inspired by this thread. I have no pictures of when I was 172 but I would imagine just a bit more fluffyness.

    This one was taken on 3-31 or a month after (this wasn't really planned, by the way, pretty spontaneous from what I remember) I had a journal entry on march 25th and I was 158lbs then, so either that or 157lbs in this pic:

    This was taken on my birthday, 4-10, according to a journal entry on 4-15 I was around 156lbs so not much weight loss. I wrote that I had not sprinted at all in about three weeks and had mostly been lifting. So weight loss had stalled probably due to the decrease in sprinting but I still think there's a bit of a difference between the two pics. The lighting is crappy, and I may be flexing in this one:

    Now finally, this was taken 4-27 and I weigh about 153lbs so definitely not much weight loss numbers wise but I see a big difference. I wish I had taken the flash off for the previous pictures because I think the lighting in the last one shows better definition. I am not flexing in this last pic.

    Like I mentioned earlier I still want to get leaner, I have quite a bit of fat still left around the midsection and also my legs but I'm getting back on being a bit stricter. I allowed some bad carbs and haven't done much exercise (need to sprint!) in the past two weeks.

    Ha, Maba, yeah. I'm thinking I'll post a before pregnancy, 40 weeks pregnant, after pregnancy, and then after working hard all summer. That should show a good progression of what the PB has done for me

    I think Tim's right. There is the start of a six pack.

    yep! My abs are haaaard but there's fluff on top of it still. I should take a picture after training, especially that pyramid of pull-ups and dips I did not long ago. I had so much blood flow that my skin tightened and everything looked so deceptively big haha. Thanks for the encouragement everybody!

    Although I guess in a way that speaks to how great the PB is... fairly easy daily walks, 20 minutes a couple times a week with a $20 pullup bar, eating tons of bacon, eggs and steak, and losing 30-ish pounds in 4 months. I kind of thought the claims here were bulls**t to be honest, but it was nice to be proven wrong!

    Don't be embarrassed. Clearly, this is a true testament to the power of following the Primal Blueprint. I'm glad you got such great results with minimal effort in the exercise department. Like you said it does speak [volumes] to how great the PB is.
