I posted this to /r/keto last week, decided it might be nice to have it here too. I started “Obese” (>30 BMI) now I’m just “Overweight”.
First time posting progress pics. I was going to wait longer but I was just at a conference where they were doing headshots. I had a similar one taken right before I started keto. Time for a comparison.
Here you have before and after. 4 months, 37 lbs. Oddly enough, both were taken at SalesForce conferences.
2000-05 Wedding – According to my wife I weighed 220 when we were married 15 years ago.
2006-10 – In 2006 I started keeping track (mostly daily) of my weight, this picture is very close to when I weighed 276. I later lost quite a lot of weight doing the “Shangri-La” diet and then again lost more doing something similar to “Whole 30”.
Here’s my complete weight log from October 2006 until February 2015 (excepting the year or so I stopped keeping track in 2009)
2014-10-13 Dreamforce – This was just before I started keto. I weighed 258.
2014-10-13 – Also at Dreamforce. This is mostly just for fun.
2014-10-25 – This was taken 4 days after I started Keto. I was already down 8lbs. My wife looks awesome.
The spike in January is when I ate carbs for a week in preparation for a weight loss contest. Gotta level the playing field!
2015-02-20 – 4 months and 37 lbs. I was down to 220.5. It’s awfully close to how much I weighed when I got married plus it’s almost exactly 100kg.
2015-02-26 – Hey, every one of these has to have a selfie right? Yes I wear a tie to work every day. Yes that’s a Napoleon Dynamite figurine, it talks.

In January 2015 he created the recipe for Keto Chow and released it without restriction for anyone to use, at the same time he began mixing the recipe up for people that wanted a finished product and has seen steady growth in the business every month since.

Chris and his wife have two sets of twins with a couple singltons thrown in for good measure.
