    HA! Me too! I get hives looking at clothes. I have nightmares from my back-to-school clothes shopping trips with my mom. "Go try these on", "Make sure they are loose so you grow into them", "Ma'am - Do you have these in HUSKY?" I still remember having to take out a hundred little pins to try on a stupid shirt. I think I only own 2 shirts with buttons right now, pocket T-Shirts rule!

    Everybody is looking good!

    Thought I'd include an update, though it's nothing major. This is August of 2011:


    This is June of 2012:




    That's 10-15 lbs lost. I'm still working on all my fitness goals, but a recent re-dedication has resulted in great improvements in my push-up #s (on knees, still working on the core strength to handle a real one).

    Haha, next time, I'll be all muscly and either the little chest tattoo will be covered, or I'll probably have another one elsewhere

    Well, I feel a little funny posting photos here, since I really haven't lost much weight...BUT I have lost a lot of pain, due to reduced inflamation & being able to lift more weights, & more often without injurying/reinjurying myself. I can do yoga again, same thing, without hurting myself. Before my Oct 2000 motorcycle crash, I was doing yoga daily for about 14 years. But my discs & some nerves were facked (either they still are but don't hurt or they are healing) & I've got so much thick scar tissue & muscle imbalances from grafts & 9 surgeries, and blah blah blah.

    Anyhoo, here's me @ my highest weight ever, 165 lbs. It's just a head shot on the couch, 19 months ago, before I went fully primal with my diet.

    Here's last summer, about 155 lbs, leaner but still in daily pain, especially in the mornings & sometimes at night pain would keep me awake, disrupting my sleep. Or days of pain if I stand on my feet too long just 1 day, or carry too many heavy grocery bags up stairs or tote luggage to/from the airport...

    These past several months, I've been more consistent with primal diet AND LIFESTYLE, ie swimming, lifting & walking, biking daily. In the photo below, about 2 weeks ago, I weigh about 148-150 lbs. But I feel much stronger, have little or often no pain at all in my back, I swim more laps & faster laps without feeling tired & am increasing my weight reps & feelin' good about it! My moods are more steady, less melancholy more hopeful about the future, more emotionally level, more happy. Waking up earlier in the AM with more energy & no pain or very very little pain but mostly no pain, still eating loads of food, as much as I want, lots of healthy fats, sometimes 2 meals a day, sometimes 3-4. Never count calories, never will. Do a 18-24 hr water fast once or twice a week.

    Yeah, I wanted to chime in kudos for Hank too. Great job, man! Way away from CW, & reversed your diabetes in the process. That's awesome & sends a powerful message to the people interacting with you I'm sure...
