    I haven't made much progress since I last posted, maybe some inches - but when I get down about how much journey is left, it is nice to be reminded of where I started. I am thankful that I don't feel like a 100 year old woman on her last leg anymore, near death's door. And even though really I am not quite half that age, now I only feel half of my true age (at least sometimes)

    No Glamour Shot w/makeup or anything. I was just headed out to mow my yard and I liked my hat.

    65lbs gone and counting!!

    I've been doing the primal thing for about two years now and figured I'd show some before, during and after shots.

    Shortly after my wedding, shown in the first picture, I figured that things needed to change. A friend pointed me to Mark's Daily Apple and I decided to try it for a couple of weeks to see what happened. I don't have any no-shirt shots for "before". I guess I was too embarrassed.

    Here I am at 255 lbs.

    15 months in, at about 205:

    And today at about 180.

    (I'll reply and add the side view.)

    I had a DEXA scan done a couple of weeks ago, and my body fat is down to 19.5%. I've set a goal for myself of dropping 5 lbs more total and adding 3 lbs of muscle. The coach at my gym thinks I can do it in about 10 weeks. I've tightened up my diet for a bit (more carb restriction, eliminated dairy and all other cheats) and added some lifting to my regular boxing/cross-fit routine. I think I can pull it off!

    You look amazing. Already. You are a babe. And thank you for not doing a glamour shot...lol. I find them so tacky. I cringe every time I see one.

    Larry, you look so happy and healthy. Wow. Who knew that cute guy was in there??

    It's been a while! Time to check in!
    Everyone is looking gorgeous. You guys and gals are so inspirational.
    I haven't checked in photographically here since last fall. For those out there questioning if this is sustainable, I feel comfortable saying yes! My family has been primal for 18 months now.
    I hit my lowest weight last fall at about 9 months primal and have kept active and healthy. Winter cushed things up just a little, but it shed off in the spring. I have been packing on the muscle though. I left my 9 month low weight photo in there for those of you still worrying over the scale. Weight is merely your gravitational relationship with the earth. I've not changed clothing sizes, nor do I look much different (except for the tan- working on that), but I've gained 8 lbs. I'm also stronger than ever!
