Paleobird - pics have been approved!
I had never seen your before pics! By the time I came on the scene I think you were already posting rear-end-in-leather-pants photos. What a transformation and what an inspiring life story! You go Glen Coco!
Congrats, fantastic transformation! So glad you figured out what works and are so willing to share, thanks.
your dog looks exactly like the dog we had when I was in high school-his name was Walter.

first, paleobird, i have to say that no matter what size or amount of hair, your spirit really shows through. I can "see" how you really own and live in your skin, but I can also see how there was some discomfort in that last photo (what seems to be a sort of emotional discomfort with size).
no two ways about it, not only does cancer (and cancer treatment) suck, but it also usually leads to weight gain after the fact. I think it's partly the steroids to be sure. i honestly only know a few survivors who didn't gain a lot of weight, and those were the ones who lost a ton because of eating issues due to the medications.
I have to say, too, that I think your success is fabulous. Ryan is like "can i see those again? can i see those pics again? yeah, those are nice." I swear, boys are weird. I'm sitting right next to him, and he's like "oh, and you look great too." yeah, dude, i hope so. LOL!
You look great, and no doubt your winter beach days will attract a lot of attention.
Paleobird, Ay Caramba! You are a primal babe. You look awesome! Congratulations on your results. I know you have worked very hard.
PaleoBird, what a sassy smile you had there! Congrats on your successes - especially that bastard called cancer.
