Way More Important Than… (106 Pounds Lost in 7 Months)

I’m referring of course to this morning’s post which I’m not even going to link to. This is why I do this, folks and this is why I’m going to continue to defend the PRINCIPLES of the paleo and primal way.

Let’s go back to early November where Chris reported to me and I reported to you that since May of 2009 he had logged weight loss of 94 pounds (6 month’s time) doing the paleo / primal life way. And in the comments he was asked for photos and has complied. He’s put them on his own blog but I thought a nice montage would be appropriate. Here’s the before, mid-May ’09.

And this is at the end of Oct, ’09, compared with him in his barbershop quartet outfitting back in early May.

He’s gonna need a new costume soon, if not already. As he reports, his weight loss is 20 additional pounds from the photo on the right for a total of 106 pounds.

Go paleo. Go Primal. Rock on, Chris and a hearty congratulations. You deserve enormous credit, not just for your amazing accomplishment but for your willingness to share it and inspire and motivate others.

And thanks for turning the top entry on the blog to something so positive.

    That’s amazing and so inspirational. Look at how the puffiness is gone from his face.

    […] remember Chris, right? A mere shadow of his former self at 106 pounds lost in 7 months. He's not done, yet. Via […]

    He looks to have Edema and needs to eat more refeed carbs. – Joking of course!

    Way to go Chris! Nice to be inspired post lunch on a sunny day in Hollywood!
