Aug - Jan: before and after (pics)
I've been avoiding looking at the before photos but I'm at the point where I want to, to avoid backsliding during the new year. I'm not doing the scary underwear photos in case people I know stumble across them and I don't have the full dramatic changes of some of you, but I'm happy with the changes I've seen since I started SCD in August. I'm still about 10 pounds heavier than my army days (I used to be a sgt) so I might try to lose that during the coming year. But even if I can just hang here I'll be pleased - for being 47 years old, I feel great now! The left sides are from August, the right is from today.
My favorite change is my legs, I don't see much difference below the knee (I was biking a lot over the summer so calves were already strong), but the definition above the knee I think is from the kettlebells:
From the side:
and the front - I'll always have wide hips, but I see that the shirt hangs now instead of being stretched across my stomach.

Jake you look amazing. I was wondering how heavy the kettle bell you are using is? My son got me a set of 5, 10 and 15. I don't think it is quite heavy enough, but I am pretty much a weakling. Also wondering what you think about juicing? I have a really hard time eating all the veggies. I always enjoy your posts, you are so informative!
