Well after years in a executive position, several hundered thousand air miles logged, and enough stress to drop an elephant, I have decided to change a few things. I am 6 foot tall and 61 years old. My normal fighting weight when I am working out regularly is around 200 lbs. Out of high school into college I weighed ~150 lbs and started running and weight lifting, playing tennis, rock climbing, 10Ks and 26.2's, snow skiing/instructor/Ski Patrol, President of the Kayak club..... I leveled out around 200 lbs being well rounded in all my activities and had ~10-12 % body fat(dunk tank) Then I start working after college as a mechanical engineer in both the medical industry and aerospace specializing in advanced composite materials, armor systems and mine blast attenuating seats(for IED protection) Quickly moved up the ranks into management with more responsability, travel and longer hours. My 40&50's were made up of 50-70 hours a week, hundereds of thousands of miles in flights all over the world, high stress and little "me time". Lots of client dinners and wine/beer/whiskey and no exercise. In the last 10 years my weight has gone from 205-245/250 and toss in high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a case of increasing psoriasis . Add in the mortally equation considering there is more time behind me than in front..... I Had to make a change. I made a promise to myself that as of Jan 4(after the weekend) I would stop drinking (liver needs a break) and live Paleo/Primal life style and do something physical 5 days a week, even just a short 3 mile walk. I have all of Marks Primal books including cook books( thanks to the Monkies for the intro). We have probably 50+ Paleo cookbooks cuz my wife has been follow that lifestyle( gluten free, sugar free and dairy free) due to illness for the last 8 years. Weight on 1/4/2016 was 245.9 lbs and this morning Sunday 1/10/2106 I am at 239.2 BP(Before Poop) and I ate and was not hungry at all. So 6.7 lbs BP.....not to bad for the start.
