I'm ROF laughing ...After the comment re the pigeons leaving nasty deposits & you having slower bowels than the busses on the local service... Just wanna know (or maybe not) what sort of deposits the busses make...) I guess they have been known to leave skid marks


Tears in my eyes ROFL Possum!

Yeah Poss, if I was an ant it would have probably fell off and good riddance (actually I have the opposite problem, overly fluent the last few days) verbally, online chatting and otherwise.  Have colonoscopy finally booked for end of month.  YES!

Sorry Cristina, we're filling your thread with #*($.  "That's what friends are for"

Thanks for the humour girls, I needed it!!  

I am almost there to move one notch down on the scales.  This morning I saw a glimpsed of 83, but when came back from the walk and after having breakfast was back on 84.2Kg!!  I think it will be nearly a month since I hit 84! Talk about plateau!! I usually drink a lot while walking ... I am trying not to obsessed over it, but I cannot stop myself weighing every day, even two or three times a day!!  I do not know what has got into me!!! and I have adviced people so many times not to do that!!!  Slap, slap     ...   

I have been thinking too that the one thing that may be slowing down my weigh loss maybe the fact that my routine is all over the place.  For the last few weeks, I had been struggling  with my priorities, and my food routine has been at the losing end.  Very compliant with everything, but not reaching quotas of live foods and balanced proteins ... Too much going on around me ... Late nights affecting my wake/sleep pattern.  No problems to go to sleep, but not getting there early enough and not waking up early enough ... I am an early riser and I miss my early mornings ... 6, 6:30am is too late for me ...  I can almost hear Lola: alternate nostril breathing!  Yes, it has come in handy a couple of times, very relaxing.  Funny, when hubby tried to do it, he could not set the fingers up, bending the fingers the way the routine ask, made him feel funny, he actually went all off colour on the face!!  try to figure that one up!! he can use and bend his finger individually no problems, just that combo ... Anyway, I need patience and once these things around us settle down, it will be ok and the weight will fly down.  Although, I will be so proud of myself if I can achieve that in despite of stress situations ... That is why I am looking at GT/Warrior and reviewing my biometrics ... It is important to get it as close to right as I can.  

Simby, I will try to photo my fingerprint and post it, see what you think ...

Cristina   thanks.  Great idea Possum, even shoes can change the weight.

You probably know already that muscle weighs more than fat.  The scales CAN lie sometimes.  If you're exercising well, you could be putting weight on but losing fat.  You know holding water will send your weight up.  

What about measuring your waist, hips etc. instead of your weight, say once a week.  It shows more of how you are toning up and it may surprise you.  I don't really go by weight myself as I swell up at different times of the month and when it's hot, but clothes that fit and don't fit are an indication and whether my legs rub together or not (have thunder thighs no matter what I do ) .  

Maybe the full moon was interfering with you last night?   Sounds like you've been really busy lately and you need to take it easy - maybe too much stimulation?

It was bad when Dr asked me to step on the scales and I said "what, just after christmas?"   Bad time of year for routines and weight loss, hopefully it will all return to normal soon

Wise words girls as usual ...  
I was copying and pasting my shopping cards from Swami today, including neutrals, and guess who I came across in one of my food lists for red meats:
OPOSSUM!! No to worry though, it is in the avoids!! not that I would ever dare laying a teeth on our friends, no matter how shining their diamond coating may be!!!     I wonder what the rating of it is for our friendly and wise Possum?

...I feel like I have so many nomad traits myself according to the GT book, but my blood type takes me somewhere else ...  


If you tend to identify with Nomad, that would tend to support the idea that you are a Teacher instead of a Warrior.

Really CS? Why is that?    

PS: I mean, that identifying myself with Nomad traits makes me more like Teacher? Curious...

In the GenoType diet, the diets are sort of paired--with diet pairs being for people with common characteristics.

  • Hunter/Explorer
  • Gatherer/Warrior
  • Teacher/Nomad


One way you see this is in the supplement recommendations. Since the paired diets have common characteristics some supplements recommended for the pairs are the same (not all the supplements, just some).

The primary characteristic that the diet pairs share is a worldview.  Teacher and nomads share a receptor worldview.

Hijack alert:

SWAMI just told me that I was a receptor Warrior!  The advanced calculator in the book pegged me as a Teacher.

*sigh*

Oh, and opossum is actually eaten by people down here where I live.  They say once possum has been cooked in a house, you can smell it forever.

Poor possum's get blamed for everything  .  Christmas food is so naughty , but I enjoyed some dried cranberry homemade treats this christmas that weren't too naughty.  Seem to be the only dried fruit I like at the mo (no sulphites, just sugar ).

Sparkler - the overall label doesn't seem to matter so much, did you get foods that you like to eat (on your SWAMI)?  (Well the receptive part fits with Teacher anyway) Don't worry about hijacking this thread, Cristina is a great sport.

So true, Im Nomad by the book but Teacher by SWAMI,  for me Supps. (Teacher) work very well. Synergist Nomad/Teacher (Omega 3/6 from flax seed )
is so good, before I tried some Omega3/6 and didnt feel ok.

Cristina,
I just finally dived into this long thread last night, and couldn't stop until I read the entire thing!   It's wonderful that you are documenting your journey with the Swami, and I know it will help so many other people.

I just received my swami a couple of days ago, and I'm glad that I read your thread before I got into it.  Now I realize that the process can be some trial and error until we get it right.  Now I won't expect to be able to sit down and have it done with on my lunch break!!  



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.

Sparky, I like being intuitive, only get into trouble when I stop listening to my intuition.  Some people don't understand how I think though, that's their problem    

Glad you got some foods you like, maybe some new ones to discover hey?  Lots of foods on the diet are still new to me but getting there.  Becoming an accidental chef is fun.

Dear friends, I have so much catching up to do now!  So many interesting things going on in the forum!!Sorry I have been away for so many days, but it has been unavoidable.

2010 started as a roller coaster of situations and emotions that required the help of as many of my reset genes as I could summon!  The big mouth, loud, 'emotion controlling' genes (the bad ones) kept on pushing their way around, but thanks to the strictly compliance in eating for my type of the last few months, the good moderator genes took control of the situation and the crisis is now over!!  It does not matter what was the situation or why, but how I coped with it is what counts here.  Sometimes life happens that make us sad, or as Lola wisely told me, we make ourselves react sad to situations, but, we are humans, still struggling in our way to gene perfection and bound to trip and fall when least expected, but, as long as we pick ourselves up, it does not matter, they are all learning experiences.  I am talking strictly on a internal type of reaction here, no tripping on the diet or lifestyle at all!  I can assure you that this is the type of situation that in my youth would have caused me an ulcer (ooops, I did have a duodenal ulcer in my 20s!), but not this time.  Armed with knowledge learnt here about  the calming chamomile teas, the soothing of my dairy (Peccorino, feta, gouda and yogurt), the stabilizing effect of at least 6 cups of my live favorities (including onion, carrot, zucchini, leek, spinach ..), the comfort of the sprouted bread and diamond spreads (peanut, almond butter, barley malt, maple syrup), with the energizing boost from my fruits (blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, ...) and the support of turmeric, curry, basil, thyme ... and Teacher supps (yes, this was the one occasion I did have them everyday - my good genes demanded it!!), we rode the crisis OK, DH and I, of course his genes had been getting indirect help from my home cooking  for both of us!!  .  OK, OK, glad everything is now behind and hubby and I can now relaxed and concentrate in ourselves.    

That is what we thought until this morning!  What a strange day this happened to be.  We find ourselves getting up at 4am to be ready to depart on a 125km trip to Brisbane at 5:00am to avoid traffic to be at this place with enough time to meet a deadline for a test (nothing to do with bodily functions, sort of material, building test).  Cutting a long story short we managed to get ourselves trapped in an elevator at 7:00am in the morning in a city complex, waiting for someone to open it for us.  I had been trapped in a strong room before at work (somebody locked it while I was still inside doing software stock taking, no pretty situation to find yourself in), so I tried to control those memories flooding in, sat on the floor and started nostril breading while hubby pressed the alarm button on the lift!!! We were rescued within minutes, after all, how unnoticed can a lift be in Brisbane on a weekday? Still, not a moment too soon if you asked me.  So, right on time, we took the sample to this lab, hoping it will turn out negative, but a couple of hours later the results were anything but negative.  Worry, apprehension, panic ...Once again, those rotten genes trying to have a feast on us!! Moderators, moderator genes where are you?  It was not until after the 125km trip back home, a few more hours of meetings, discussions, analysis and what not, that everything was resolved to our satisfaction and we could finally take a deep breath of relieve!! We celebrated by shouting ourselves 2 soyaccinos looking at the sea, eating compliant dory fish dinner with rutabaga oven baked chips (baked at home beforehand), and just appreciating what we have, and concentrating on the beauty of life before it passes us by ...

The moral of this story is that life happens, but we always have the choice of abandoning ourselves to it, or facing it the best we can by attending to us, me, myself, numero uno, and keep on fortifying those genes the way we are supposed to, because they are the only ones that can carry us through life in the best possible way !

Quoted from Teresa S
Cristina, congratulations on your good lab results. Now you know your husband's blood group for sure.  Your son could be an "A" or an "O"  And yes, Lewis b-  is equivalent to "non secretor"


Finally my son took the plunge and did the blood test for grouping, lewis, MN and A1A2.  Except that the A1A2 and MN test results were never done by the lab because the doctor never wrote on the form specifically that that is what it wanted done!!  Now son has gone overseas, so no chance of knowing those for a while.  Will be surprised if he does it while overseas.  Never mind, at least now we know that he is a A Rh(D), le(a-b+) in other words, Secretor A positive, like me.

Looking at the characteristics, I think my daughter may be a A non secretor like her dad...

And if A2 are suppose to tolerate meat better, then my son is for sure an A2, i cannot guess what MN he may be though, not sure about the significance of those in our physiology or personality?

Piece by piece the puzzle is taking shape ...
