Lola, what is that phone #?  There is a digit missing!  Why is it so hard to get those tests?  One would think that you could get them in any major city.  Dealing with the mail is such a pain!
Paul:  Start execising little by little... even a few minutes morning & evening.  Staying at home with little ones is very tiring. I do remember it and quit worrying about my weight at that time.  Now I just turned 58 & weigh 30# less than I did at age 30 while probably eating the same calories.  I eat better & can exercise more.  But when the kids were little, they were my priority.  Now with more mobility, I can keep the weight down.  Maybe you can factor in your commitment to your family at this time & try to keep your weight even without trying too hard to lose.  That causes a lot of stress!
Soon the little ones will be older & you can do activities with them.  There are so many sports, walking, etc. to do.  Maybe when they join some club or sports team, you can hop over to a health club during that time & work out.  Congrats on home schooling! It's wonderful & most people I know who do it have wonderful results.
Sea Salt & Light,

PS  I weighed 165 for a time & am now 135 while eating 3.000 calories a day!!
I also nursed a lot which is supposed to burn a lot of calories, but that just increased my appetite.  It's amazing what the right foods & good exercise can do!!!!

Thank you for the support Mrs T O+!

I am back to re-reading (for the umpteenth time) LR and trying to juggle my day to include extra hydration before meals.  As for dealing with the little ones, the less analytical thinking that I do, the better! If I can muster the energy, I will start formal homeschooling for our 5year-old girl.

The only naturopath in town touts his learning expeditions for natural healing techniques, but shows no awareness of the BTD. He also modestly descibes himself as a "leading" Naturopath in Canada.

Personal Rant Warning

When I read "In some individuals X may cause Y to happen" my hackles are raised.  In the press and on "educational" websites I have seen slight variations of this blantant admission  of polymorhpism.  It is just being used as an escape from the culpability of giving medical advice and an escape from the resposibitiy for further research.

We Now Return You To Your Regularly Schedualed Paul

I will consider iridology from this "leading" Naturopath to get confirmation of my (self diagnosed) liver issue.

Question: Are you doing amature iridology? Or do you just like to admire yourself in the mirror?

Update: after two weeks landscaping and house refurbishment my parents-in-law have told me they see the weight loss.  My scale now says 302 (instead of 306) before complaining of the abuse.  Now, if I could only persuade the health centre workers that letting me use the 340 lb max counter weight scale without an appointment is a legitimate used of health care equipment ......

Paul,

I have this crazy idea that fat is sometimes used by the body as a 'thinning' mechanism to dilute some very serious toxins,  So maybe you have a mild mold issue and would profit you to wash your intake of nuts/seeds in a mild hydrogen peroxide solution.  Then try some NAC and L-glutamine to give your liver detox (called glutathione) a boost.

Nutrition yeast may help  too....

if you think your gut could stand some healing.  Seacure wil help ... http://www.naturedoc.com

Thank you for the advice John.  Your comments show a depth of experience that is rare for someone not a practicing natropath.  I eat NTYB Inc almond and hazelnut butters to a point of excess - at least twice recommended serving/frequency.  

I owe everyone an apology for my inaccurate tag line.

I was weighed in May of this year in the local medical clinic and was over the 350 maximum of the counter weight scale.  I asked weight myself today and it read 343 1/4 lbs!  I have lost at least 7 pounds!

There isn't a smiley big enough to show how happy I feel!  I have been struggling with serving carb-rich food foods to my kids, while denying myself a serving.  I have eaten fast food burgers at least 3 times a week! My landscapping work was finished over two weeks ago, but I expect to be loosing about 1/2 a pound a week if I keep up the effort.

By spring I will have convinced my wife to eat right!

Yes indeed - steady as she goes!

I have a great incentive; when I am just over 200 lbs I look like a bigger version of Jim Carey (except with a stronger jaw line) and I almost have the same energy level (so that I could keep up with the kids).

The only negative that I could see is my wife's jealousy.  If she goes on the diet, since the most prominent part of her character is her competitiveness, I do not see this as a significant problem.  She was most impressed with Melissa J's before and after pictures.  Her pictures were much more effective than all the conversations about the BTD that we have shared over the years.  I am rather jealous about her attentions also, so I forsee a continuation of balance in our relationship.

Next year is looking considerably brighter than it did yesterday!

Guilty as charged.  I discovered that I have to limit my shopping of nut butters, because they "disappear" after being in the cupboard for a few days.

Pumpkin seeds are a good replacement.
