    The photo on the left was paleo but I was under a lot of stress and not sleeping. The photo on the right was after a huge decrease in stress, an increase in sleep, and an increase in Hard cider consumption. 192lbs to 170. February 2013---August 2013
    I Didn't change my exercise routine and I didn't change my food consumption. I knew stress was a b!tch but I didn't know it was that bad.

    That's crazy that stress alone makes such a huge difference. You're very lean now.

    Thanks, guys. I couldn't believe the stress correlation either. I was at a loss for months trying to figure out why I wasn't losing any weight. Once the stress levels went down, the weight just melted *poof* and it's gone.

    Did you learn new ways of coping with stress or did a stressor in your life disappear?

    Just realized we don't talk about stress enough around here. I'd like to see a whole new tread about coping with stress.

    A stressor disappeared. But I also learned ways to deal with some of the other smaller stressors as well such as work/life/etc... It seems if I just write down everything that is going on in my head before I go to bed, I can silence my mind big time and it definitely helps out with sleep. A couple years ago I got pretty heavy into Buddhism and through meditation and such I was able realize a lot of simple truths. I've recently started picking back up some of the buddhist stuff and it's also been helping.

    Especially love the mirror! It reminds me of those 18th century portrait miniatures, sometimes worn as jewelry. Well, minus the starched frilly shirt, padded waistcoat and jacket with 10,000 buttons. I think your version is nicer!

    I was thinking he stole it from the evil queen in Snow White.
