Fantastic job otzi! Awesome inspiration (just starting my journey...).
What did you do for the exercise part - follow Primal or something else?

These are all very inspiring. Keep up the hard work!

Phosphatidyl serine 100 mg (also called PS100) 3x daily. Rhodiola rosea 3x daily. 5-HTP an hour before bed. A MASSIVE B-vitamin complex (called B-600 with adrenal support), 3 in the morning, 3 at lunch. Iodine 2x in the morning (I'm deficient), and progesterone cream at night--I haven't been officially tested, but based on symptoms they think I'm estrogen dominant. Hence no licorice.

Nope, but I do have fibrocystic breasts, and I've had large ovarian cysts in the past, one that had a slow bleed.

100% bodyweight exercises, although I do own a treadmill and have a 60 pound sandbag I squat with.

2 years ago, I was 'sedentary'. Now, I walk 3-5 miles per day, do bodyweight exercises 3-4 days a week, and sprint once a week or so.

Cool thanks. Same as I plan on doing on my end. I just started yesterday with the Primal eating - but also yesterday I got diagnosed with "Marcher's Foot" (stress fracture) so there goes the interval training part for now.

Charley you look awesome! Thanks for sharing, I'm 52 and have the "carb" belly. Its so motivating to see getting rid of the belly can be done at our age!
