you guys are looking great!
Kakes- your abs look awesome and you're an inspiration to me. I too have some mean tiger stripes, but it's nice to see how your skin has tightened as you've lost fat.
BTW Icarian, I know you didn't post an "after", but you look like a beast in your avatar. Meow!
my primal journal:
Gotta say threads like this inspires me to workout even though winter is comin..
Everything is bad for something - How do you feel today?
I got serious about my health after I saw my wedding pictures. I had hit a high of 255 lbs, and didn't really like what I was seeing:
At 255 pounds
I started severely restricting carbs in July 2011 - on my own because I hadn't found MDA yet. I didn't take any "before" shots probably because I wasn't too happy with how I looked with my shirt off.
This is a couple of months later and about a size smaller
At about 235
And this is where I am now:
Shirt off, front
Shirt off, side
I'm at about 195 after 15 months or so, and I've been plateaued for a while. But my new-ish exercise program (60% boxing, 40% cross-fit) is moving the mass around a bit.
All in all, I'm happy with my progress. The funny thing is that I'm far more aware of my current spare tire than I was of all the extra weight I used to carry around. Go figure.
