Re: Anyone have pics?

In less than a year of paleo and crossfit I went froma 40 inch waist to a 34-32 inch. 210lbs before and 165 now.
I feel great.
The worst part is that I have had to repurchase my entire wardrobe. Even my shoes shrunk down.

Been a lurker for a long time, as I have been crossfitting for almost a year and a half now. I decided that I would finally post some "before" and "during" pics.

The first picture is from January of 2009. I weighed 280lbs. (wasn't even the heaviest i had ever been) I am 6' tall, and had approx 34-35% body fat. The worst part, is I "Didn't think I had that far to go" and "Didn't think I was THAT big, haha boy was I wrong.

My sister opened an affiliate, got me in there and I fell in love with crossfit and I haven't looked back.

The next picture was taken just last night. 16 months after beginning my journey, I am close to my goals. I am now 206lbs, 15-16% body fat and happier and more fit than I have ever been in my life.

There have been bumps in the road on the way, but that is life. I am glad that I have done this slowly, as to me that means that I have done it right, and I have taught myself the effective habits needed to maintain this "lifestyle" for the rest of my life.

I have often looked at these threads for inspiration in my journey, and maybe now I can help someone do the same. I still have a ways to go, but my crossfitting, and diet are not slowing down. Crossfit has changed my life in unimaginable ways. I look forward to how it will continue to make my life better!
congrats Jerad and keep up the great work. btw in the 2nd pic - has anyone ever told you that you look like "Sean Garrity" from Rescue Me???

I don't have photos of me when I was really a fat mass of blubber.

The second photo was taken in June of 2010. I still do not have the ripped washboard abs I see every day I go on the forum (my diet is just normal) so I kept my shirt on. But improvement is improvement.
Mighty sweet red beard. Im jealous.
