I suppose the best thing about all of this Paleoishness and conditioning is that though months go by without a lot of progress perceived on my part, it's gratifying to see it after a year.
And guess what? I weigh exactly the same as I did a year ago, about 180. Here's what it looked like a year ago, "My Transformation in Photos," and I was happy with that because it was an improvement on the previous set.
In all of this, I have always taken refuge in the belief that, 1) if this isn't long term sustainable then I'm just goofing myself and that, 2) if it is long term sustainable then if I'm doing it right the fat will take care of itself in time. Patience. This is not and never has been about quick fat loss. It's about getting on a life plan you can live with that motivates your genes and your metabolism to just do their natural thing. You didn't get fat and undesirable overnight (yes, being fat is undesirable, unattractive, debilitating and all Fucked Up -- don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise).
On the other hand, for those of us a little older, and, if being ripped style lean is an itch you just have to scratch, then once you get to a nice, sustainable body composition you might want to take it to the next level. That's what I decided to do and I'd venture that two months ago I pretty much looked like I did a year ago. But no longer.
OK, here's how it's going. Bear in mind, the pics from today and a year ago are at the same weight, 180. You can click to get the larger version.
