I don't have a "before" image that I can find...I kind of escaped being photographed, as many here can relate to. I may have a group one on the company server, so I'll look tomorrow.
Here's my journal, if you care to wander...
So here's an "after" pic. I apologize for the BVDs. It's hard to keep pants up these days. When I started this I was what y'all would call "skinny fat", and wore a 34 waist. These are 30s that are falling off today. Dammit it's expensive keeping up with just casual clothes!
Primal Blueprint is good for this 52-year-old body!
P.S. That's Rocky the Jack Russell taking his ease in the background. Not impressed, I think.
Killer past, kates, do you have a thread? Top 3 tips? I'm 36 and ready for massive change

True freedom is the ability to live in a way that is all life giving, not clouded by anything that contaminates body, spirit, or mind.

BZM, Rocky looks alot like my rat terrier, Pip. She also loves to sleep on our bed, even in warm weather she'll crawl under the covers with only her nose sticking out.
Oh, and great job! Isn't it wonderful to see such positive changes at our age, I'll be 53 this month and I've never felt better!

Kakes, you look amazing. I love pics of people who have gained weight. At 125, I am not especially light for a woman my height, but when I look in the mirror, I think more lean mass would be just as helpful as less fat.
Croll and OutdoorAmy, thanks for the kind words. I feel amazing, 20 years younger.
BZM, that doesn't look like the body of a middle aged man! I get that whole "pants on the ground" thing. DH went from 38" to 32" so fast, he could hardly buy pants. Now he's afraid he'll slip on down to a 30" and have a terrible time finding pants. The selection at 32" is already noticably worse.
