Limetwist, your posts are the reason I frequent this forum. Love the menu ideas, love hearing about your experiences with IF, love the humor. Please keep posting!

ETA: your transformation is phenomenal!

Thank you, everyone. <3 Your words mean the world to me!

And Naples, I'm so happy to hear it! I kinda disappear every now and then, but I plan on sticking to low carb for as long as these bones keep holdin' me up. I have a ton of fun writing posts and try to be as engaging and fun as possible, because let's face it--with the multiple issues surrounding health/obesity, we need some humor to keep us goin'. I've learned a ton just by lurking and posting here.

Yeah. I'll give this a shot.

Before (and this is before the heaviest..no pics when I'm fat please)



another..see how far the guitar sticks out.


And now (and yes, you can be an IT manager for a multi-million dollar company and still not take a good pic on your IPhone)

And no, unlike the other studs here, no shirtless for me right now.

Woohoo, GratefulParrot, you are looking great! No need to "hide" your tummy under a loose shirt now. You look strong and way more buff, a big guy but not a fat guy, now. Congratulations, and keep up the great work. And keep on posting, too! (Pretty soon you'll be posting an impressive shirtless picture, I just know it. )

Not the best pics but I'm camera shy... The before is one of the heaviest pics I have and was around the time I was 320-ish. The during pic is about 275-ish. I still want to loose another 40-50lbs so I'm about half way or so now.

Great Job Cobra. Our weights are the same. I'm not a weigher, but I have my annual coming up and I get weighed at the docs, but I'm guessing im in the 270's as well. My goal is 245. At that weight I won't have alot of body fat, but I won't be ripped either. I'm 6'4" so 245 will look good.

Good gracious! It is somethng to see how extra weight can really distort a physique! It is like there is another person in you. Ya'll cobra, parrot, limetwist you guys rock!
This gives me much hope. I have lost 25 lbs but the camera is not really picking it up yet but my clothes and stuff is fitting better. some of them i have to take a pin to hold them up. folks who haven't seen me in a while are saying "wow, you are losing weight huh?" So something is happening. On the
4th my friend had the wonderful idea to take a pic of me in my bathing suit it's my official "before" pic now. I should be posting a after pic along with it soon hopefully.

I'll be honest - the people around me picked up on my weight loss long before I felt I had lost any significant amount of weight. So if people are coming up to you and saying you looked like you've lost weight - that's a good thing...

All of these pics are so inspiring! I'm starting low carb again tomorrow! I've challenged hubby to see who could lose the most weight before vacation in 9 weeks, so hopefully I'll have some pretty awesome pics to post by then!

New Progress Pic!

Hi there!
Everyone is looking so GOOOOD! Been a while since I've been here...but I wanted to post a new progress pic!

Thanks to Watch-Me-Shrink and the inspiration she has been for me, my body is getting closer to goal!



This is after one round of ChaLean Extreme and Wendy Chant's CTFLC.
Up next is a round of the ChaLean Extreme/TurboFire Hybrid! Can't wait to see the results!

Good luck to everyone! Keep up the good work!
