Weight loss

Day 12

Big Life Change

7:42am:
In this Blog post, I am NOT suggesting for others to cease following their doctor's orders [Prescriptions, etc]. However, what I am writing about here is likely an event that is the most important in my lifetime! So, I am Blogging about that event.

This morning, I replied to Reader Chartrue 2 who asked me for info about my medical care, prescription meds, etc.

You may read my comment/reply to Reader Chartrue 2 by clicking [Here].

However, my going off all prescription meds had other effects on me. Perhaps not as dramatic, but extremely significant for my health.

During the approximate 6-months period after I went off all prescription meds [Beginning June, 2016], my body weight began to decrease. I have weighed the same for decades. And then, in this short period of about 6-months, my weight decreased from 185 pounds to 145 pounds.

This weight decrease was NOT because I had a terrible disease [ie: Cancer]. I believe that my meds disrupted my homeostasis [Link]. It is my belief that prescription medications had the effect of reducing my body's sensitivity to know when I needed [or did not need] nutrition. As a result, I maintained a much higher body weight.


.

After going off all meds, my body would not digest more food than it needed for survival. Instead, that excess food became part of my waste elimination process.

Now, I am carrying around 40 pounds less weight. And, I did not go on a difficult diet to do this weight loss. It just simply happened!



11:02am:
Slow reader!
I have always had trouble reading. Firstly, I read very slowly. Secondly, I fall asleep when reading a book.

Recently, I bought the book:
"CAPITAL in the Twenty-First Century" by Thomas Piketty
[Link]

What was I thinking when deciding to buy "Capital?" A 750+ page book? That perhaps an entire lifetime of not being a successful readers would suddenly change for me?

Anyway, I guess that I am an incurable optimist. I've set my wake-up alarm for 6am each morning [Instead of 6:30am]. I've titled this alarm: "Read Capital!"

I shall let you know what happens with this noble experiment!


5:52pm:
Where's the hose?
Do you recall seeing a black propane hose lying across Scampy's floor? Below is a pic of the floor captured by Little iPhone a few minutes ago.

Where's the hose?

  1. George, If I'm reading your post correctly, you weighed the same before and while you took your meds. You lost weight after you quit taking your meds. My hubby had some serious health issues a couple years ago. Once he got better and started taking meds, he's lost 40 pounds. In the last year, I've lost 40 pounds taking the same meds I've taken for years. We are all on a roll losing 40 pounds I guess. Bottom line. I'm not all sure the meds are a factor since we all have had different situations. Maybe just one of those things.

  2. For some its very hard to eat healthy and maintain your weight, especially when there is a lot of daily stresses to deal with. I think some things work but I also started to use this product and it helped me! Its now free to try out for a limited amount of people... I can't say if it will work for everyone.

    1. Hey, Lisa!

      If I begin a regimen of "Green Coffee Bean Max", will I develop great abs like the gal in the ad?
