Talking Testimonial from a giant!!

What's up everyone!

I've been lurking about the forums for a few months now, and figured it was about time for me to share my weight loss progress with the online CF community, and the other site lurkers that haven't yet stepped up to drink the CF Kool-Aid themselves.

But before we dive in, allow me to provide a little background info for you all. I'm 25 years old, 6'5", and was 342lbs as of Christmas Day, 2012. I lived a very sedentary lifestyle up until Jan 20th of this year, when I joined my local box (Redline), and made a serious effort/commitment to change my lifestyle for the better. Since that day, I've gone the strict paleo route (no sugar, dairy or wheat
whatsoever), quit smoking cold turkey, and have consistently hit 4 WODs a week.

I've been taking photos of myself every 3-4 weeks, and stitiched them together to make a collage of my results thus far, which is what I've attached to this post. The image on the left was taken on 01/29, and the right on 03/14. As of 03/14, I now weigh 293lbs!! Down 50lbs and lookin pretty damn fly if I do say so myself

So yeah, the results speak for themselves. I'm excited to continue to improve my technique, lose weight, and finally get fit! Who knows, maybe I'll be the next Rich Froning!!

Feel free to ask any questions and all that good stuff!

-Nic
