AWESOME!!! I'm sure you don't need to be told that, sure the mirror reminds you every day. Way to stick with it though, those numbers are pretty motivating.

John:
Are these results strictly from doing Crossfit WOD & the Zone or did you add to it?
Congratulations on the great results.

My results are from crossfit wod and a "paleo like" diet.
lean meats,nuts(almonds), vegetables, fruit& dairy mostly eggs. very little processed or "boxed" food.
lately I have been eating more carbs in the form of monster banana-flax pancakes in the morning they seem to help with my recovery and
havent resulted in any weight gain so far.
John
