    Hello MRO!

    it was driving my bp through the roof. i was a walking
    timebomb and i was going to die. so my bp was like 220
    over whatever.

    Taking meds for the bp?

    I was reading that the medical community was thinking of
    lowering the highertension bp level to 130 or something.


    and then i lost a lot of fat and size. i still had cheat
    days but when i had that pizza i put some weight back on.

    Breads (particiularly anything with wheat flour) will do that,
    easily.


    anyways, i got sick of living that way. i wanted to be
    happy instead of being fit and attractive. i'm not looking
    to impress anybody.

    Happy n healthy is a pretty good outlook to have. But being
    overweight and a bp that is running amok is a contradiction.


    so here i am fat again. i'm not busting out , heavy
    breathing fat either. i can walk 10 miles, easy, i can lift
    50lb bags of whatever every day.

    Someone said that they "can quit smoking 1000 times a day,
    easy."


    right now i want to fit into my old clothes and leather
    jackets so i think i may be ready to lose weight again.

    Fitting into a favorite set of sport jackets again and avoiding
    to buy larger belts and pants was my visual incentive.


    here's the secret. you have to be ready. if you arent
    ready, you won't get it done. -+-

    Staying off the operating table is not enough incentive to be
    ready?

    I've been checked out more than anybody here. i'm healthy.
    my bloodtests are better than most people.
    i had an ekg and they said it was 'really really good'

    I was reading that the medical community was thinking of
    lowering the highertension bp level to 130 or something.

    I can't help but think this move is similar to the lowering of levels for cholesterol which has more to do with selling drugs than ideal health.

    Breads (particiularly anything with wheat flour) will do that,
    easily.

    Modern wheat is problematic in a lot of ways, many more people either have intollerances on their own, or are compounded issues with histamine intollerance as modern wheat has roughly 20x the histamine response of older variants and heritage grains.

    Much like finding out what your dairy or eggs were fed, I really wish it were
    easier to find products that expressly aren't made with modern wheat. I have issues with wheat and legumes... Seem to do okay with corn and rice, other than the glucose effects.

    Had an EKG last week to get cleared for surgery... My heart is strong, like bull. My liver, kidneys and pancreas not so much, let alone my joints.
