    10 lbs in pictures

    7/12/13 edit: Added an update on page 2...

    I started my primal journey in August 2012 when I came across this site searching low-carb info. At that time I was 225 lbs. I started following the primal WOE right away. About 6 sixs weeks into it (end of Sept 2012) I decided to snap a few 'before' pictures on a whim (yes I was tanning!). I never planned on posting them! My weight at this time was ~217-220.

    So five months later I decide to take some more pictures since I finally broke through 210 that I was stuck on for what seemed like forever. 207 the scale said that day!!

    I could hardly believe the difference "only" 10 lbs made.

    I really look forward to seeing the photos! Right now they're pending approval from a mod. You could upload them to photobucket or some other pic host if you don't want to wait.

    Not sure how to do the photobucket way, hopefully this way doesn't take too long...

    Stacy, that is amazing. The total recomp. Look at you! And only ten lb loss showing on the scale. Everything looks lifted, and your body looks so much younger. Rock on!

    That's ten lbs?! O.o

    Jikes. There must be a lot of added muscle somewhere in there. You look like yo would've lost the double!

    Honestly only 10 lbs (maybe 12 at the most).

    I guess it's true - scale doesn't always show your progress!!

    I see myself every day and don't notice the little changes day to day. I was judging my success on what the scale said, instead of noticing things like my belt loop getting a notch smaller every month. So glad I did the pictures!

    Most of my calories come from a protein source, and I workout 5-6x week (although I slacked a bit the Dec-mid Feb!). Bootcamp style workouts, high-resistance biking, swimming, and some bike-sprints. So I'm sure I've lost fat/gained muscle. The last 2 weeks I started heavy lifting since felt the resistance of other workouts couldn't increase from where I was at - I could just do them faster.
