Wow.. great work, Mac!
These next photos were taken back in '04 when I was at my largest (for bodybuilding) around 215-220:
I stopped working out in '05 when my first kid was born and over the next 5 years my weight stayed the same, but I lost all my muscle so that means I was good and fat! This is me today at 186lbs and 36 years old and I started working out again in February of this year. So, ya, a skinny guy can build muscle it just takes a long time and a lot of dedication:

Wow.. great work, Mac!
Coach! You look GREAT!!!
Life on Earth may be punishing, but it includes an annual free trip around the sun!
Mac you look amazing!!
Type 1 diabetic for 25 years.
Low carb for 7 years, LC Primal for 2.5 of those.
Fruit and starch free.
Total weight loss- 3 stone/42 pounds. Current weight = 121 pounds. Height 5'5
I take Zymessence systemic enzymes.
Nice progression and deflation Mac! I actually like your look better now as your vascularity looks better. Your muscles may look bigger in 2004, but they look harder now. Your mid-section is also more natural looking without the bodybuilder stomach. I bet your clothes hang on you better now as well.
Well done Mac! Keep up the great work.
God is great, beer is good, people are crazy

Well done Mac, Im 20 now so Im starting your journey! lol although Im think Im even skinnier than you were, dont think im aiming for your size but for similar progression. How long have you been primal?
Best tips for someone wanting to learn from your years of experience?
Dam this is gonna take longer than I want but wont give up.
Tips? Hmm...let's see. Consistency is number one. Working out for two weeks and then taking a week off and then back at it for a week and then off for a week is going to get you nowhere - fast. That's about all I can offer, really. There are two million ways to train and everyone seems to get results so I won't talk about training in any great deal, but for me I have always trained with Max-OT and still do. The best training program is the one you can stick to and I really enjoy the short, intense sessions of Max-OT which is why I do it. I tried the 8-12 rep high volume thing for a couple of weeks and couldn't stand it. Some people will tell you to change programs all the time, but for me I don't see the point. I enjoy my workouts which keeps me doing them. Injuries have prevented me from doing certain exercises, but that is really no big deal as I can still do all the important, compound exercises that allow me to use maximum weight.

Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.
