    Wow, what a difference 9 months can make! Nice work, Mommymd. Keep smiling!

    I just hit 80 pounds lost today (since Jan 1). This may call for some new pics.
    I wish I liked to eat liver.

After I read the first book I got every other Paleo book I could get my hands on and dove right in.

    I went from a 44" waist to currently a 38". I don't think I have been a 38" since middle school. I went from 3xl shirts to a 2xl and now a few Polo shirts that are XL. That was also a big motivator was being able to walk into a store and buy clothes, instead of ordering them online.

    I work on a tugboat where the diets are terrible even though the coast guard has strict medical guidelines for BMI. That was also always on the back of my mind. They strive for a BMI of 40 or under, even though still unhealthy, if they went any lower there would be no one running tugboats.

    This is my journey so far, I havent cheated at all and I can't go back. My goal weight for now is 225. I think with hard-work and determination I can achieve that goal. My friends and family have been supportive. I have also introduced family members, friends, and strangers to the diet. They have also found success. Well keep fighting the good fight!

    PS. Tattoos are Paleo right?

Probably eat too much dark chocolate, and have started enjoying coffee.

    Totally off grains, sugar, and soy (well, 95%-5%), and I've incorporated a lot more meat into my diet. I still eat a lot of dairy and some artificial sweeteners, and that's not changing anytime soon (so no lectures, please!).

    As of the last time I weighed myself, I'm around 175 lbs, 42-32-41. Still 5'6". I don't know my body fat percentage, since I don't have calipers or access to any other facilities.

    I last posted in April: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum...tml#post805721 At the time I weighed around 185.

    This is me today, 11 July 2012:

    And just for fun, here's a pic of me doing some yoga the other day:
    Love the full wheel! I am still working on it. I just don't have the upper body strength yet.

    I can't do bridges because the blood rushes to my head, same problem with hand-stands! I feel like my face is full of fluid within a few seconds and like I'm going to pass out within 5-10.
