Second Day I Awoke With A Higher Temperature

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.6-pounds.

Today is the second day that I have awakened in the early morning hours with a body temperature of over 98 degrees Farenheit. This is really a very encouraging outcome for me.

I really believe that if I can keep my body temperature up at a normal average, instead of the 96 degrees, and below that I have been averaging, I will burn more fat eventually.

We'll see if I am correct.

Bye for now...

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.2-pounds.

That's down, and a long way from 180-pounds.

I have been taking my temperature regularly. I am convinced that part of my problem with my weight has been because I have an under active thyroid.

Well, my temperature has been showing more and more at 98.6 or above 98 more often.

This I think will eventually help me burn those extra calories.....

Now, some people think that if I'll just exercise that will do the jop. Nope, it doesn't do the job. It's exercise, and caloric intake that does the job.

I Woke Up With A Normal Temperature

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 205.4-pounds.

This morning I woke up and took my temperature. The thermometer read 98.7 degrees Fahrenheit.

I think this is a good thing. This might mean that my thyroid is normalizing. It might mean that I will burn calories easier. We'll see.

Join Us And Black Out Your FACEBOOK Photo

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.8-pounds.

That's down.

It's not where I want to be. However, I think I will be making some progress. Since I have been taking desiccated thyroid, and kelp capsules, my body temperature has been slowly rising.

Our body temperature should be on average 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Well, my body temperature has consistently been below that.

I never new my thyroid may have been under performing because of a lack of Iodine. Yes, my thyroid gland has been working, however, not like it should have been.
The thyroid gland can absorb other chemicals that cause the thyroid to under perform.
The only way to combat that is to start supplement in some form of Iodine so that the thyroid will have that available to absorb. If the thyroid can get the Iodine it should have then hopefully it will begin to perform normally.

With the addition of Iodine from kelp (Seaweed) my thyroid may very well be absorbing the iodine it needs to speed up my thyroid.

I woke up today with a body temperature just below 98 degrees. This is higher than before.

Hopefully as my body temperature begins to rise, I will start burning fat like I should.

We'll see if I am right.

Do You Know The Damage That The Health Care Reform Bill Did?
Barack Hussein Obama promised that your insurance premiums will go down. Well, nothing will be further from the truth.

The new law forces insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions. As a result the insurance company will have to charge more for your insurance premiums. You think you have benefited, but the reality is you will pay more.

The essential provisions for this bill don't kick in for another four years. Barack Obama wants to get re-elected in 2012. If the actual penalties, taxes, and costs kicked in right away, there would be a huge backlash. This would even be from the DEADBEATS who think they will get free insurance.

You will be forced by law to purchase Health Care Insurance. If you don't then your will be fined, and if you refuse the fine, you will be jailed. That's it, the government will put you in jail.
How do you like that America.

In four years when these provision finally kick in after Barack Huessein Obama is re-elected, then you will be terrorized by government officials... It's going to get bad.

Join us. If you have FACEBOOK will you black out your photograph. I have mine blacked out.

(Let me give credit where credit is due. I did not originate the idea about blacking out my photo on FACEBOOK... It was a woman by the name of Cheryl Jordan who came up with the idea, and I am following suit. The original day it began was on March 22, 2010.)

My Body Is Warming Up... Maybe I'll Burn More Calories

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 205-pounds.

OK...

Now, I would be dishonest if I didn't report the last two days I was actually at 207, and 206.6-pounds.

But I am down from that for today at least.

My Body Temperature Seems To Be Increasing
The normal temperature, or average temperature, for the human body is said to be 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

For a long time my body temperature has ranged below that temperature.

This might be part of the problem with me having issues with my weight.

I embarked on a program of consuming kelp from seaweed, and consuming desiccated bovine thyroid. Now I might not die from a thyroid condition, but I'll will get mad cows decease instead. I am kidding.

My temperature seems to be rising. We'll see if this helps me lose more weight...

My Body Temperature Seems To Be Rising

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 204.4-pounds.

That's up again.

My Body Temperature Seems To Be Rising
About a week ago I listened to a radio program called Coast-to-Coast. On the show a doctor was talking about the thyroid, and how important it is in so many bodily functions.

One of the things he talked about is the thyroid gland is a very reactive organ in that it readily absorbs iodine. But, because it is such a reactive organ, it also can absorb other chemicals in our diets that have other chemicals ending in the .........ine. For example, it can readily absorb benzine, bromine, chlorine, etc. on the list goes.

He mentioned that most Americans don't consume enough green foods that contain Iodine. As a result the other chemicals displace the iodine in the thyroid. This displacement of the critical chemical of Iodine results in the thyroid malfunctioning.

The malfunction of the thyroid that most often takes place is commonly called hypothyroidism.
Hypothyroidism is a "slowing" down of the thyroid in that it's not producing appropriate levels of hormones that help the body function properly.

Well, one of the side effects of hypothyroidism is a malfunction of the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is critical in regulating the bodies responses to metabolism.

Often an under active hypothalamus gland is found to be responsible in the body being unable to metabolise body fats.

It's very complicated, and if you want to know more about it, then I suggest you google the Internet for more information.

I Decided To Start Taking Action
I did a test that's very simple. In the morning put a thermometer under the armpit. Take the temperature in that location.

If the temperature falls into the temperature zone that mine has for the last ten days, then the odds may be good that the thyroid is hypo-active. Mine has been falling below 97 degrees consistently for the last ten days.

I believe that my low body temperature is because my thyroid is slow or poorly functioning.
I believe that is because I don't get enough Iodine in my diet.

I went to the health food store and purchased desiccated bovine thyroid, and kelp capsules.

I started taking one thyroid tablet a day. Now I am up to 2 thyroid tablets twice a day, and four kelp capsules a day. I take them in the morning, and at night before I go to bed.

My morning temperature hasn't gone up, but my waking temperature seems to have gone up. I am now measuring over 98 degrees. This is up from measuring as low as 96 degrees during the day a week ago.

I am hoping that this regiment will increase my metabolism which in turn will help me regulate me lose more weight.

I don't know if it will work. It's too early to tell for sure.

I have been cautioned by some people in the medical profession that I can seriously injure myself doing this.

Well, how about the fact that I have been in this condition for a very long time. No doctor that I have ever seen has ever suggested that I have my thyroid checked.

The medical establishment is not trained to look carefully at the thyroid gland. They rely on a test that they use to diagnose the conditions of the thyroid.

The easiest test is to take your temperature. If you were like me, chubby, and your body temperature was way low, then you probably have a poor thyroid gland.

You may be able to increase your thyroid just by using Iodine liquid, or using kelp that's inexpensive, and can be purchased at the health food store.

My Body Temperature Has Dropped Again

Hello weight losing fans.

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 303.8-pounds.

Oh boy...

I have been working on improving my thyroid activity by taking descecated beef thyroid tablets, and kelp capsules. I thought I would see some improvement.

This morning I woke up and my body temperature had actually dropped another degree lower to 95.5 degrees F. I have been hoping to increase my metabolism, and therefore as a result my body temperature would go up too.

We'll see what it looks like tomorrow.

Bye for now...

A Crazy Thought For The Day


Is Your Thyroid Causing You To Gain Weight?

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 203.4-pounds.

Do You Have A Hypothyroid?
Early this morning, I awoke at around 1 AM. It wasn't time I wanted to wake up at. Only, once I awoke, I had a hard time falling asleep.

I decided to turn on the radio and listen to a radio show called Coast-to-Coast. On the show he had a doctor talking about how so many people have a problem with their thyroids, and don't know it.

I won't get into all of the particulars of the show, because to be honest I don't remember everything that was being said.

I did decide to investigate further what was being said on the show.

One of the things I did was do a simple test to see if I have a low thyroid. I took a thermometer and put it under my armpit. If the thyroid is normal then my body temperature should have ranged in at 97.5 degrees F to 98.6 degrees F. My thermometer showed 96.2 degrees F.

Now this testing is supposed to go on every morning for at least five days.
I didn't have to test anymore to convince myself that I had a low body temperature. I also figured that I have a hypothyroid because I have all the symptoms.

Now I decided to try and treat my own hypothyroidism. I went the health food store, and purchased some decicated bovine thyroid, and a bottle of Kelp tablets.

I will see what progress I make as result of using those two items. I am sure that I have had hypothyrodism for a long while. This in my opinion explains why my weight lose had stopped at 180-pounds. With very little increase in food, I easily regained another 20-pounds.

If you want to learn more you can research the internet. I am posting a link to a web page that I was reading because this page directly addresses the issues of weight gain because of a poor thyroid gland.

How Iodine Accelerates Weight Loss: http://www.naturalnews.com/008902.html

I am curious to know if anyone reads this and is willing to research for themselves about hypothyroidism.

Just think the cure may be as easy as taking a supplement like Kelp Tablets.

That's all for now...

Slipping, and Slipping Up The Weight Scale... NOT Down

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing ?????

The reason I don't know is because my baggage was taken by accident yesterday and I just had to drive 50 miles to recover it. My weight scale was in the bag... Yes, I still carry that thing around with me. A lot of good it's doing.

Yesterday, and the day before that I came in weighing in at 207.2-pounds.

Oh my, am I slipping or what?

Anyway, it is what it is....

Muslims Will Not Be Screened For Explosives

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Magical-Mystical-Digital-Scale weighing in at 202.6-pounds.

OK....

Hey I love to stir up controversy, so I am going off the weight loss topic I usually write about, or don't write about, or haven't been writing much about.......

Anyway......

Did you know that MUSLIMS are now the protected, safe people in the United States under our current president?

Yeah in the airports all across the country ordinary American Citizens will be forced to walk through scanners that will expose them to X-rays that can damage genetics, and expose personal genetalia to the viewing eyes of airport TSA's .

Here read this article...... This ought to make you blow your top...
