Cleanse Your spirit; Lose the weight!
Blood Pressure: 142/76 Pulse: 71
Wow blood pressure way down today closer to my normal Blood pressure before all the weight gain. Today I had a great start to my day. I have two main fears these days’ bugs and the shower. The bugs are understandable; the shower is definitely strange. After gaining this much weight, it’s been difficult being able to stand long enough to shower long, and it’s hard to reach lots of places. It used to be that my back would hurt and then my feet would hurt and then I’d just find it hard to get really clean for my standard, without a handheld showerhead. Today sat for about 20 minutes trying to psych myself up enough to take the shower. I finally told myself: “Just get the key areas and that’s okay” I got in the shower today and I could have stayed for hours! I took a long drawn out shower, reached all over my body and it felt just fine! Actually it felt great and I was able to scrub clean really well. I got out and languished for a spell and even put moisturizer on my face. I never do that, I never see to myself in such personal ways. I know it’s only 35lbs, but I swear there is something about the amount of water I drink daily and think about how I’m treating myself or loving me. The water is just cleansing my soul and my ways. Food just doesn’t taste the way it used to and water tastes like the spirit of God. I wish somehow I could impart the life that runs through my veins now. There is hope for me; there is hope for everyone. There is not only hope there is a destiny of a healthier, happier, wide-eyed the road and me stretches wide and beautiful finally with the life God meant for me to have. I am truly thankful.

Breakfast of Chamnpions
Blood Pressure: 153/78 Pulse: 83
Today breakfast of champions was celery with peanut butter. I’m starting to get into this weightloss thing! How much can I lose before September 1st? I hope it’s substantial, then my hopes for September, October, November, and December will be great! That’s four months with a lot of weightloss potential! It’s funny I’ve never looked at things from this angle before. I am loving it.

"Human" sized Body
Blood Pressure: 160/77 Pulse: 68
I almost can’t believe it; I’m down 34 lbs! I guess all that water added to better choices of food, most of the time is finally working! I still can’t seem to get the “post all your food” bit down. I literally hate taking the time to look up everything and then add ingredients for ones not listed etc. Maybe I’ll get to that someday but right now it’s a stressor I really don’t need to bother with. I do believe the experts that say it helps with weight loss; it’s just not one of the things I’ve been able to get myself to do. To be perfectly honest, for me convenience and ease is the best thing to keep me on track. Counting all the calories and such etc just drives me nuts. It works for some people, but then weightloss is a highly personal issue. People are made up of all kinds of different chemical equations so it makes sense that all programs don’t work for all people. It’s not so much the physical equations as much as the mental and social ones. Obviously for me I’ve been dehydrated for a very long time. Today I had some seafood with pasta, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I couldn’t finish it all and the rest will be left for another day. I don’t like to get full because then it’s hard to drink as much water as I crave these days. I burp a lot and I use the bathroom constantly, but things run pretty clear and obviously it’s doable to get me back to a “human” sized body! Fat ass indeed!
