Problem area progress

I know this is touched upon under "paleo before and afters" but I thought it might be a good idea for us to discuss the parts of our body that we are working to make better physically with paleo. Yes, there will be total-body transformation, but we all know that there are some parts of our body that are harder to mold than others. It would definitely help keep me accountable and make me keep up with my eating and physical activity. We could also post before photos, as well as photos as our paleo journey progresses. Is that weird? Anyone interested?

For example, my thighs have Always bothered me. They're big, at least compared to the rest of my body. I used to be super muscular due to horseback riding, running, and basketball, but as my training stopped, so did the muscle development. I'm now stuck with legs that are a little smaller, but really lacking the muscle tone that I want. I've been running, doing body squats, and some weight training to get them in shape. Camera is dead now, but I'll get some photos up soon.

As an aside, superhumanradio had a guest, Cassandra Forsythe, who outlined a great lower body training routine for the girls. http://superhumanradio.com/components/com_podcast/media/mp3s/SHR_Show_806.mp3

I'm totally comfortable showing but in my particular case others won't be as comfortable watching ;)

Girls usually Do obsess, but ever since I started eating this way, I don't overthink my body like I used to. It's amazing to see how your body naturally changes in response to the way you feed it. And yeah on second thought, suggesting that people post photos may make people uncomfortable, and make this thread nsfw haha. I suppose if I really take on my own challenge, I'd have to snap some shots of my thighs which would be kind of awkward.

My glutts have always been kinda flat. I've always wanted a more muscular fuller butt. I don't quite have "white man's disease" but I'm close.

I won't be posting any before/after photos though LOL. Although I am mooning my friends in one of my facebook pics.

I've never been obsessed about any one part though...maybe it's a guy thing?

I just like my body to look like nature intends it to look. Some guys obsess over their chests or shoulders and they end up looking too top heavy with toothpick legs. I think a natural, sleek, muscular look is more Paleo than a bulky bloated, look.

I think it's good to have proportion and symmetry in the body. That's what makes it universally visually appealing IMHO.
