A few years ago I "won" the right to buy Swami access for my DW - from a weekly weight loss bet with her.

After over a year of ignoring her Swami, she is now beginning to work with it, and is more than supportive of  the kids eating much closer to the A secretor diet.

I now have everything in place in terms of my own needs to descend from my plateau a little above 320 lbs.  I have gained while sticking to the diet about 3/4 of the time and not taking much in the way of supplementation.  Despite this, my hip bones have emerged from the flab around my sides and I have gained musculature and strength.

Since this summer has been a good sweating season, I will make the most of the rest of it.



My weight loss goal: 220 lbs.  A 6'4" dyslexic oddball: the size of a line-backer, the silhouette of Winnie-the-Pooh.

Wonderful news Paul!  Some things take time, and your wife needed more time to get to where you have been traveling.  


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

There are at least a dozen INTP's on the board that I could name - given enough time.

There is another board that I frequent where the to most common MB types were INTP and INFP.

The board is disproportionately Explorer-biased as well.  Explorers being that little more ... challenging, shall we say.
