    Okay... Feeling a little bit self-conscious about doing this as I am usually more of a lurker than a poster, but given that I hit my one-year Primalversary earlier this week it seems like a good time to share some pictures. Here goes - I hope the link works!

    http://i1367.photobucket.com/albums/...ps163bc819.jpg

    As of this morning I'm 65.6kgs (144lbs), so 14.5kgs (32lbs) lighter than I was last summer. I also dug out my old body analysis printouts from our gym - they don't go a full 12 months back as I honestly didn't want to know what my BF% was to start with - and since October 2012 I have lost over 6% bodyfat. I'm at 22.4% at the moment, and would like to get down to about 18%. In terms of other stats - I'm 32 and 5'6''.

    Aside from the numbers, I can honestly say I've never felt healthier, stronger or happier with my body. I sleep really well and although work stress still gets to me from time to time I feel more able to deal with it - I guess it's that happy Primal calm that other posters have mentioned :-)

    The link works. I can hardly believe the change you had gone through! Was it "photoshopped" ??
    The amount of visceral fat you have lost is quite outstanding. You have literally deflated!

    Thanks dkJames nope not photoshopped at all

    I am so glad I took pictures at the start - I hated seeing them at the time (and I don't love looking at them now - can't believe I let myself get like that) but it's been great to be able to compare, especially as my weight really hasn't changed that much since January and if I had been relying on the scale I would have been very frustrated!

    Wow what a change! You look great! Seeing your pictures makes me want to take more pictures. I never feel like I'm changing, but when you do a comparison like that with them all together you can really see it.

    Amazing the difference in just 32lbs! I wish I had thought to take that many pics, because it's glorious to look at.

    Hi! I do barbell glute bridges now but I didn't before those photos were taken. Barbell glute bridges are amazing, I can tell already! That butt was just built from heavy squats, lunges (hate them but I do them) and leg press, really.
    I added in deadlifts later on and they're definitely made a difference too (I was deadlifting before those photos).
    Current weight lost: 82.9lb (37.6kg)

    Current PRs:
    Bench: 45kg/99lb
    Squat: 100kg/220lb
    Deadlift: 120kg/265lb

    This is my story. I wasn't sure the best way to put it here so I am inserting a link with my story and pictorial journey. I hope it will stir encouragement for those starting on this journey.....and for those entering the second half of a century....your goals are attainable.

    My Primal/Paleo Success

    Cheeky Fit and Fifty My Success Story | Cheeky Fit and Fifty
    I know I'm late to the party, and please excuse me for this, but to quote Trace Adkins, "you're one hot momma"!!
    What a fantastic result.

    I've just spent the last several days, pouring over this thread, reading the success stories, and checking out the before & after pics, and I have to say that I've seen some amazing results!

    I'm currently nursing an old military injury to the knee, and a torn rotator cuff, so my workouts have not been what they were.
    While I'm maintaining my weight with PB (thanks Mark), the gains in strength, size and definition I saw with crossfit are starting to wain

    You are all an encouragement to me.
    Thanks and again, Congrats to all!
