    Well, I made up the goal, lol. I just wanted something that wouldn't disappoint me if I never got any lower. I still have a *lot* of body fat to go (ahem, thighs still bigger than my teenager's waist & waist still bigger than my husband's!), but if I never made any more progress, yes, I'd be happy! I've posted a lot of pics here along the way, but have been holding off on that big "50 lb" party. Don't worry; no body image crap here.

    Hitting that goal would be a huge celebration b/c it would mean that the physical problems that are keeping my body from releasing any more excess fat would be done!


    AWESOME changes, Trekfan!!

    Trekfan, that's super awesome!

    What's your height? if you don't mind me asking... my husband is around the same weight (though a bit taller, I think) and he is thinking that losing is impossible. Maybe seeing your pics would help.

    And, if you really get tired of being mistaken for a highschooler....grow some neatly trimmed facial hair. I think it would look good on you. But I'm partial to men with facial hair so... :shrug:

    Here's me with the family for our church picture in late April 2011 ... I'm the one in the very back in the plaid ugly shirt. At this time I was 273 ... I was heavier I think between April and July of 2011, but I never stepped on a scale to know, so this is the highest recorded weight I was. I crammed myself into that blue polo shirt and threw on that plaid shirt, 2XL (that barely fit) to hide the fact I was way too big for that polo shirt. I was a freakin white whale. Captain Ahab thankfully didn't find me, lol.



    This was taken in August 2012. I'm pretty much the same now. I stopped losing weight at the end of June 2012 (below 140 just didn't look good or feel right to me) and began focusing on strength training via body weight exercises. A little over a year after starting Primal and I look a lot different and am frequently mistaken for a high school student (like, a 10th grader ... seriously). I've gone from size 40 jeans to size 28/29 (depending on jean maker). I'm in size small shirts from 2XL. Primal has been the best decision of my life and the people in this thread, and all over the forums, have been massively supportive/helpful in my pursuits.

    If anyone has any questions or anything like that, feel free to ask me in anyway you can. Pay it forward, as they say.

    Primal rocks. That is all.
    Absolutely outstanding! Congratulations.

    Thanks guys

    SarahW, my height is 67.5 inches so that's about 5'7, 5'8. As for growing facial hair, I pretty much suck at it. Just isn't in my genetics I guess, lol

    It might be perfectly normal for you, but you might consider having your testosterone levels checked. It's one of those things that a lot of people have problems with today, but don't know it, and don't realize how much better, in various ways, they can feel when it's in the ideal range.

    I'm a chick and I know mine is too low, and am working on it!

    I've been a member now for almost a year and haven't posted any pics cause I have before pics but there will never be an after pic just progress lol !! I have to thank my brotha Todd ( touchdowntodd ) for pointing me in the right direction ! First off I'm 33 and have been overweight since birth !!! Lol I also had an injury in wich sidelined me for a long time ! I suffer from degenerative disc disease (9 herniated and bulging discs) I went through many painfull injections physical therapies and even the dreadfull pain management where I lost interest in life ! I couldn't even walk through Walmart for 20 minutes . Fast forward to today I quit smoking got off all pain medications and got a treadmill over a year ago . Now I do 3-4 miles a day on my treadmill can breath clear take nothing for pain and am slowly and properly loosing the weight!

    a lil over a year ago around 260ish lol

    And this week 230ish
    The number means nothing to me although I'd like to think 189 is possible I haven't been under 200lbs since I was like 10 months old . As long as my clothes get big on me and I continue to feel better everyday that's what's important . Also all this whole awesome food makes it that much easier !! Grok on !!!
    My mother always told me " your just big boned "
    I tell her there's no such thing as a fat skeleton !!!! Lol
