    I'm gaining muscle and getting lean on 4 min twice per week. Go kettlebell swings, go!

    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)
    Apathy is tyranny's greatest ally.

    Kestral, your pics always blow me away. And you've kept the weight off for 2 years! Congrats.

    Took me 3-4 hours over as many nights to finally get to the end of the thread. Inspirational stuff, everyone. Glad I finally finished it; was waiting for someone to ask me why I was sleepy at work, only to reply "I was up late last night on the internet looking at pictures of dudes with their shirts off. Wait.... that didn't come out right."

    Will be back in a few months to pay it forward.

    Are more pics in order? I re lost about 6 pounds to boot. Maybe I should keep myself motivated by posting my current pic.

    More pics are always in order! Here are some for the slow loser crowd like me:



    Same outfit, about 12lb difference from Nov 2010 to Jan 2012. In between, though, my binge eating and EXTREME sugar addiction disappeared. Much work is being done that is helping to ensure that my loss STICKS. Even better than the thinner upper arms, thighs, glut, trunk. It's hard to be patient, but I'm consoling myself with the reality that I haven't been without cravings in over 15 years, but now I am. The health changes are adding on years and years of healthy life to my time - it's enjoyment of my final years, not just numbers, that I'm investing in. Health!!

    And for kicks, yesterday tried on the 20 year old cheerleading uniform:

    Well, hello nurse. You are looking fantastic and great smile! I'm glad you are feeling as great as you look.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    Love these pictures!! Thank you so much for posting them. I've never made it all the way through this thread, but when I see a new post I usually start at the back and visit a few middle pages at random. So much hard work here. Very inspirational. xoL
