    Thanks MamaGrok Yeah, I lost that weight pretty fast through a combination of psychopathic determination (which, full disclosure, helped land me in the hospital for four days) and Primal being awesome. Losing weight and doing it without eating salads for the rest of my life was a freakin miracle to me. In retrospect, I should have eased up a little and let my body catch up, but I was damned pig headed ... still, the results I would not trade for the world.

    Yeah, the testosterone thing ... it may be my levels are skewed in the wrong direction. I know that back in late June I had serious concerns that my testosterone was so low I wasn't able to add muscle mass, but since then I have added some lean mass. I now have definable muscles in my arms/upper chest area, can do 13 pullups in a row without too much trouble, and I shave once every three days as opposed to once every three weeks (as it was for, like, years prior to Primal).

    I think my levels are on the uptick, but it's just a feeling. Still, testing is a possibility but my insurance doesn't cover it so I'd have to pay for it myself and money's limited at the moment. If further issues crop up, I'll consider the testing more.

    my husband is just about 5 ft 7, 160 (muscle), and has very little facial hair. It definitely can be genetic, or nothing to worry about. But, it oculd also be somethign to worry about.

    good job all around though! wat to go, trekfan!

    Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

    Wow! So many amazing transformations. I am in the process of writing up the story of my husband and I going Primal, but in the meantime, here are my photos.

    Wow! The all-over difference is obvious, but the change in your legs is absolutely fantastic! I love how losing weight eating real food leaves you looking like you never had it in the first place, instead of looking deflated like so many folks I know who lost it with low-fat, WW, sheer CICO, etc.

    I didn't realize until looking back that my face was so round or that I had tree trunk legs! I still have a little loose skin on my thighs and am doing skin brushing to help tighten it. I also credit doing an exercise program called T-Tapp. It has really help shrink me more than what seems possible even from the weight loss. I think my legs are smaller now than the last time I was in the 140s. Teresa Tapp has one exercise in particular called Awesome Legs which she says if you do it for 10 days in a row it typically takes a half inch off your upper thighs. It works!

    I bought my book, and still havent got around to doing the exercises yet. I read the part that said, read the whole book first, and since I havent done that yet, well... ha

    But I know there are videos on youtube and the website, which I am sure is better than the book anyhow, to actually see it being done. I just have the world's slowest fast internet so I dont usually watch any videos. But it is on my to do list. I can do 15 mintues a day I do try to brush before a bath though.
    65lbs gone and counting!!

    OK, I apologize for the weirdness of the "current" photos. Lighting not very good.

    Pre-diet. On high-grain and refined foods. A LOT of them. Continual hunger. UK size 16.

    After going on a part-time vegetarian diet that limited refined foods. I got a bit thinner after this photo, but continued to struggle with weight and appetite issues, along with other health problems.

    Yeah, I don't have many pictures from those stages. Not very happy with my body.

    Some pictures taken today.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand TENSE!
    FILE0038.jpg

    Leg on left is tense. Leg on right mostly relaxed.
    Quads are almost fat-free, so that tense lump is mostly muscle. You can't even lift the skin by pinching. Inner-thigh has fat, though. Calves have fat too, but the muscles are quite big as well. Biceps and triceps speak for themselves.

    Do not, I repeat, do not feed the troll.
    Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.
