I Just Need to Gloat a Bit…


In January of 2013, shortly after Ben started co-hosting the podcast he and another mutual friend started dropping some hints to me about weight loss, paleo, and general health and well being.

It took a couple of months to get through to me, but after hearing Ben talk about eating bacon all the time, somewhere around the end of February/beginning of March 2013 I decided to give this whole paleo thing a go. In a matter of weeks I lost almost 20lbs, and felt better than I’ve ever felt.

I was tipping the scale at 283lbs back then, and I weighed in at 228lbs earlier this week.

I feel better, I shoot better, I can carry a pistol easier, and I don’t need 18 cups of coffee to get me going in the morning anymore.

All of this to say, if you want to change, change. It’s not hard, it just isn’t easy.
