Current Weight:(14 Aug 14) 274.0 lb

following: Jon299's own diet
performance: losing 1.0 lb a week

42 yr old (6'1") male, starting weight was 295.5 on 04/18/14 and on the way back now after gaining 75 lbs over the last two years. It was a rough couple years and after letting myself go its time to climb out of this hole …. I can see the light …Oh, its just another McDonalds sign :) Yes, I am a bit of a junk food junkie as my food journal will attest, but I'm getting accustomed to preparing more of my own meals at home and with fresher and healthier choices. Please feel free to turn me onto some healthy, fun, and tasty recipes if you've got 'em.

For a healthy planet and healthy people,working toward more wellness and less overconsumption and greed-and the best place to start is with myself. I guess its one way of "thinking globally and acting locally"--yeah, cheesy I know

Thanks for visiting and best of luck!

Phentermine / Duromine : Discuss ???
I didn't know you could purchase Ephedrine over the counter in Canada? I think the main reason it was banned in the US is that it's one of the main ingredients used in the manufacture of Methamphetamine. That aside, you are right that it can be deadly or at least detrimental to your cardiac health if not used with caution. I tried it back in the 90's and I didn't like it… paranoia, nausea, jitteriness, rapid heartbeat, short temper, scatter brained.

I have a friend who used phentermine to lose weight about 12 years ago and she has had an irregular heart beat ever since. I think something like this might be due to a predisposition for such a condition but how can one know if you are predisposed? She got really paranoid and over-emotional too. Almost unbearable to be around at times, like a speed-freak crack head. When I expressed my concern she said, "I'd rather be skinny and dead than fat and alive". She gained it all back plus some in less than 2 years, and now on top of that she has a heart condition to deal with. So basically now she's fat, sick, and alive but unwell. I say don't risk it.

e-Cigarettes
I quit smoking about 14 months ago, and recently decided to try e-cigs (been a week now) after having some pretty strong cravings since dieting. I have been enjoying them, getting the satisfaction and buzz I was craving without the smelly/sore lungs and throat/sinus irritation/etc side effects of smoking. The e-cigs have helped with my urge to overeat, seemingly suppressing my appetite a bit and giving me some oral stimulation too which gets my mind off eating. Drawbacks I have noticed; I am wheezing a little and when I am vaping I can feel irritation in my lungs and throat which I didn't expect. For these reasons I am considering quitting the e-cigs.

!@?#!@? And with that weigh in I just turned into Qbert. I feel sick and disgusted after a five day junk-food binge. Incidentally, I just realized ...
