Rodney, as I said before, your perseverance is amazing and inspiring. Good job on listening to your body. That is one of the things that we are not taught to do, which is really a shame; and it explains why there is so much disease and obesity.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Quoted from Rodney
If I can fix a car, build a fence, plant a tree and watch it grow then why am I not giving my body the same respect and consideration. .


Wow Rodney, that is a powerful statement!!  I really need to revamp that a bit to fit my life and print it off and hang it where I can see it daily.  Thanks!!  

Quoted from osuzanna
marianne, I was hungry all the time before BTD, too. Getting the right stuff in me - and Mr. OSuzanna says the same - has gotten rid of that nagging 'gotta snack' feeling..


Probably because you/we were eating a lot of empty calories.  

Quoted from Rodney
if I don't remember the past it could be in my future again!


How true, how true!!    

Quoted from Deborah_Sue
I printed off your testimonal for his to read.  I hope this will help him to realize what is going on with his health and diet.


Firstly, warm welcome to BTD and the forums!!!! I think this is something I too will do. Maybe the fact that itís coming from a guy will help. Something has to.

That coming from a guy shouldn't make an ounce of difference but if it does good.
Drea Tina and Poly you are all the best  

So glad I found you all. if my arms were long enough I would reach around this earth and HUG everyone of you.
You all should realize that posting and sharing with you all has been, I would guess 50% or more of why this diet is working for me. there are some things a person can't do by themselves but until you realize that and seek help and listen openly to the words spoken to you and implement what you feel is right for you at that time, you may as well not even waste your time or the time of others. IMHO

I completely agree, Rodney. Having such a large support group is a major reason why this way of life works for me, too. Within my household, and my circle of friends, I am the only one BTD-ing. Hugs to all!

I think when I do that, it takes up less room here and keeps focus on the point.  
And you are so right, it shouldn't make a hill 'o beans dif who it comes from, but that's how he is. would that mean he's a bit chauevanistic?

To be honest with you I haven't really met that many men I really like to be around for just that reason. And I know I have that problem from time to time but am working on snuffing it completely out.
I am sure thatís why not a lot of guys visits a lot of these health and good for you kind of sites or try and improve themselves, I don't need anyone telling me what to do or how to eat with arms crossed in defiance and a smirk I know it all {or wait was that gas}

That's exactly right IMO...we're all in the same boat...just some swimming, some paddling, some keep hitting the bottom, then resurfacing....some drown and are never heard of again!!!
Sure glad I swam and got into the boat!!!

I think being willing to listen to and really think about others points of view is a learned behavior.  Many people have never needed to really think about someone else's position to the extent necessary to completely rethink how they eat or live life.  It can be a major adjustment to suddenly read that you need to stop eating what you've always eaten and start eating foods that you are not familiar with, etc.

I realized that what I'd been doing was continuing to make me more sick, so I needed to change things to get better.  I came to the website to learn more practical methods to continue the lifestyle, but my background is more research to determine the answer rather than ask questions...  There is so much information to read here that I have found so much help by reading, that I rarely need to ask question.  I do enjoy contributing knowledge to help others and appreciate all the help that is here.

Very true, in my DH's case, I think it would have been much more well received if it had not come from his wife.          I can say this w/ much certainty because years ago when I was doing Sunrider, that was at his doings.  A guy he knows mentioned it to him and how wonderful it was, so he was ok w/ my looking into it. Then another guy he knows told him about Reliv and he was all hopped up to look into that. Only it was up to me to do the looking in to and I already knew about BTD at that point, so didnt. IMO there was no need, still isn't.

I think we often overlook the value of the information when it comes from our spouse...  I was in a business group once and the leadership quite often said that spouses quite often undervalue the input from the other...  Unfortunately, he didn't know why, just that it was...

Thank you so much Rodney for sharing!!  My dh is a type O like me.  He has seen my weight loss and the improvement in my health, but since its me and not another guy with results like this....

I will print off your testimonial for him to read.  Maybe I will finally be able to convert him and my O son.

Your story is truly inspiring Rodney.  I really admire your perseverance!  I "found" the BTD many years ago after I had been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis.  The diet that the gastroenterologist had me on was just making me fatter and sicker.....no veggies, white bread, pasta....
That plus the fact that a few years later I had a very small thyroid cancer and a parathyroid adenoma that were a result of having my tonsils irradiated as a baby.  I heard about the BTD from a friend I was skiing with and then a week or so later heard about it from another friend.  I went out the next day and bought ER and never looked back.  That was about 10 years or so ago!
I slip on occasion but not on things like wheat or corn intentionally.  My downfall is sweets!
Keep up the good work.  I love reading your posts.

Hey Rodney,
It was so great to read your testimonial!  I'm very glad you had the persistence to hang in there and keep trying, even though the "experts" were costing you money and not helping you!  Now you can really be an example to others who are discouraged and have lost hope that they will ever be healthy!

Thank you for sharing.

And did I miss your secretor test results?  When did you "become" a secretor?  Do you mean I was mistaken about this??  



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Your Welcome sluggerbrean
Thanks Jane,  

Yes I am a secreter I'm glad about that. I think what it was it everything going on with me all came to a head at the same time which made me all the more sickly.
NOT anymore HA feeling so good I am like walking on a cloud and hope I never come down.
well except for some pretty sore muscles from my new exercise program I started.
Glad to hear from you all
Thanks.

It just keeps getting better folks!!
I know this sounds like a brag page for me B) guess because I am just doing so well and want to share with you. This is honest no BS results for me.
For the last few days my boss has been walking around the shop with this little S eat'n grin!
this is why:
    I don't get paid by the hour @ the shop I work commission meaning I work off of sheets that have the hours I get paid already determined by the boss and the insurance company. I do work longer than average hours most of the time so do pretty well at the end of most months. This month was better than I had ever expected {40 + hours more}, had some good jobs and everything CLICKED  as far as getting parts and the paint work going well. I give a HUGE part of this to feeling so good as of late. More energy, thinking much better and working more effectively this all pays off in my business. If I make mistakes I literally pay for them.  That's why the boss is so happy, I make more money, he makes more money and the dealership makes more money everyone's happy. This diet and way of  living really does pay off in many, many ways. but don't take my work for it if you haven't already, Give the BTD a try.    
When I first stared the diet I was overwhelmed by what I had to do and doubted if I could do all described. {finding a new way of thinking}.
in the past few days I am now saying "IS THIS ALL I HAVE TO DO!!" No kidding after you are on the diet for a few months and give it an honest try you will be saying the same thing. Most of us already know this.

Yes, it is !!!!
It's amazing the strides you are making in your recovery Rodney!! Good for you!
I was again pleasantly surprised w/ my BP this AM. It was even better than the other day, so things are looking up. I know BTD has much to do w/ that. The more I read in the A/F book, the more I realize why a non-BTD-er takes so long to heal. That book has a lot of valuable info in it.
