Just an update ... going on 2 years since I lost 100 pounds or so. Most recent pic taken all sneaky like by one of the coaches at CrossFit Oakland.
Not thrilled about the chin. I've still got lots of loose skin and moobs I'd love to get rid of. Hoping to fill out a bit with some strength training.
This is last year:
2 years ago when I'd just lost the weight:
3 years ago (still working on it)
4 years ago
So if I keep doing CrossFit maybe I'll actually post some shirtless pics here. Not sure how much muscle I could hope to put on in my 40s now ... but still trying.
I've been staying pretty strict paleo except for some cheese now and then, my last weakness! I seem to have been trying to get rid of the "last 10 pounds" longer than it took to get rid of the 100. I think I'm too terrified to gain it back to touch any grains or sugar. Maintaining was always the bugger when I've lost weight before. I've found I can keep myself full with high fat stuff like coconut milk, avocado, eggs, and my favourite food is chard cooked in chopped up pancetta. (with, I admit, some balsamic vinegar)
