After being totally inspired by my co-worker Jason Sealock, my wife and I jumped in to the Paleo lifestyle full on. Started on September 3rd. She is down 12 lbs and I am down 9.5 and 2 pant sizes already. We're supporting each other everyday which has been fun for us and forced us to communicate more (which is a good thing since we'll soon be empty nesters).

She looks great and we both feel great right now. We have a ways to go but progress is motivating. The biggest change I've seen in the short time we've been doing this is my blood sugar levels are the most affected. You see I'm a diabetic and I was constantly struggling to keep my numbers in check. I've managed to keep my A1C at the level my doctor wanted (last 3 visits over a 1 1/2 years - 7.0, 7.0, and 6.9) but it wasn't easy. By eating Paleo I'm checking more often and my numbers are consistently in the 90's and I'm thrilled to say the least.

I turn 50 in December and my goal is to get down to the high 160's or low 170's and, most importantly, to get off meds completely. Haven't been this personally motivated in a long time. Thanks for providing the real estate for me to share this.

Congrats to all that are even making the effort because that's the hardest part. A gym owner I knew a long time ago told me that the hardest part of working out, was simply walking through the front door! Makes perfect sense to me.

Way to go Mr T.

That's AWESOME! I've been considering going Paleo myself to get those last few pounds off that I'm having such a hard time with. Now you, (and your lovely wife) may be the inspiration I've been needing. When I have a few minutes, I might even give you a yell to get some tips. After all....I have been following Jason on his journey and he's been VERY successful.
It's great to hear that your #s are dropping too. Keep up the great work and know that you can get a ton of support from us tinboaters for sure!

Hope to chat with you soon. :wink:

I have been paleo/primal for 1 1/2 years. Started at 220 on a calorie counting diet and held fast at 180, all the while working my butt off just to maintain. Switched to paleo the fat just burned off without much effort until friends told me im losing too much (mainly because im under muscled). Ive held at about 175 but put on considerable amount of muscle lately though (doing bodyweight exercises) so gonna see if 165 is too much weight loss for me. Bewarned friends will laugh at your crazy new caveman diet and saying no to cake/pizza at family functions will take an incredible amount of will power but It's totally worth it!!

That's awesome! It's amazing how the inches just come off...even faster than the weight numbers. I don't mind saying no to cake but I do occasionally miss my peanut M&M's but then I remember why I'm doing it. I'll be honest, I think our food is tastier now. We're being a little more creative with the spices.

Yea it is, I cant even fathom ballooning to a size 38 again!!! These days my drawers are stocked with 32's :-D. And a little hint Lindt 90% takes the chocolate cravings away, if only I could find a good substitution for pizza.. Oh yea STEAK!!!
