Re: Anyone have pics?

Thanks Jennie! Your pictures are saved in my inspiration folder... which I'm sure is true for many people!

Thanks so much.

Re: Anyone have pics?

Here's a photo I took a few weeks back. I used to wear that belt on the first or second hole. Now, I can no longer wear that belt.

I started CF back in August. Made some modest improvements before going sorta Paleo in October or so, then really strictly Paleo since January.

Tamara—

You look great and your numbers kick a$$. FWIW.

Re: Anyone have pics?

Ha! Thanks, good news is I'm now fitting back in to clothes that had stopped fitting me over the previous couple of years. If I lose much more then, yeah, will need to get some clothes. Everything's getting kinda "tenty" on me now. No complaints though.

Sweet pic, John. That is huge progress.

Thanks . I am writing my post about Sectionals (finally) right now. I came out of it pretty positive. It's nice to know that I can hold my own at this point. And, I plan to hit Sectionals 2011 with the intent to qualify for Regionals and hold my own there. I got a 115 lb push press up today, and it was solid...that makes me smile, heh.

Thx.

And as far as Paleo, I don't claim perfection. Where I'm really good is in eliminating grains, legumes and soy.

Also 80-90% of my protein comes from wild fish and game or pastured meat, cage free eggs. And I take Omega 3 supplements.

I'm pretty to very good as far as sugar and alcohol.

Sorta OK with dairy, No milk whatsoever, but I still eat whey, plain yogurt and some ice cream now and then.

For me, I think eliminating grains, soy, legumes, corn, potatoes and then getting really rigid on sugar/booze (when I have the resolve to do so) makes the fat literally incinerate.
