    So... I dug up some old "frightening" pictures of myself. I guess I was a bit nostalgic since I just had a birthday.

    Looking back, it's pretty sad...

    I think the middle picture was taken of me when I was at the heaviest... not sure what I weighed because I never weighed myself back then, I was honestly too embarrassed to (my guess is that I was close to 245 - 250 at the time).

      You are SMOKIN' HOT! I'm so glad you've had success with the Primal Blueprint! I've seen your success story a few times around here and I'm still amazed by it. I'd hit that.

        I'm so tempted to nag my husband into this lifestyle. "Don't be a nag....don't be a nag...." You look SO GOOD!

            That's awesome! You deserve it. What a transformation! I started my journey at 315 lbs, 6'2", and 34 years old on January 1st, 2011. Now 224lbs on 8/28/2011. I hope to get to 205 lbs before Christmas. If so, I will have lost 110 lbs in a year. Then I want to work on the kind of definition you have! That's crazy awesome! Great job!!

              "Since going primal, I've found that there are very few problems that cannot be solved with butter and/or bacon fat."

                Wow... it's been a while since I visited this thread.

                Still going strong on the Primal blueprint (coming up on about 2 years in a month or so).

                Didn't quite make it into the new paperback edition of the book... (I guess they only selected a few people out of the ones they contacted). Oh well... maybe next time.

                I did have a slight setback with a stress fracture in my ankle... so I haven't been able to workout in over a month. I feel like I've gained a few pounds (from inactivity)... but I'm sure it will melt off as I start working out again in a couple of weeks.

                I'll post progress pictures once I'm "back in training". lol

                All the best,

                    Champ and Chump are my boobs' names. I prefer one over the other. Also, awesome story.

                      So awesome! Thanks for sharing Steve. You really look fantastic. I hit with the carb flu big time too. I almost gave up but I'm so glad I didn't. This lifestyle is game changer.

                        What encourages me the most is that your excess weight hasn't come back. Very encouraging.
                        5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
                        Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
                        Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

                        More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
