Latest News.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4395450 I found this on twitter and I think it is very inetrestng.. I wonder what would be the side effects though..if ever an agent would be developed to adress obesity that is based on this theory...

My weight loss program is really working. I am close to reaching my goal. Actually I even feel to stop now and maintain because I look slim enough and I am even getting comments that I am becoming too thin. Even I think so, even though my weight has not yet reached my recommended BMI range. I may just stop and maintain at this level.. who knows. In any case, I do not have intentions of causing alarm about me .....

Suddenly life is very interesting, it has a meaning and a purpose. I actually feel like I want to channel my energy in this endeavor of changing me into a better person.

Thu, 6 Jan 2011 10:30:54 EST Water retention and Swollen limbs and face http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3882965 I am having a big problem with water retention.. My legs swell so much I can barely walk. These Christmas holidays were alsmost spoiled by this problem.. My face swell, my fingers swell, my whole system swells up and its very uncomfortable and painful. What is causing this and how can I make it go away. My doctors wont help me because when they press my legs a dent is not left. Their fingers dont leave a dent, so they say it is not Edema. :( <em>234</em> <em>24</em> <em>15</em> Mon, 3 Jan 2011 04:12:28 EST Treadmill and Electricity Consumption!!!!

I am the one that has been away.. <BR> <BR> I hit that patch of de-motivation.. So the way I decided to tackle it right now is to start everything afresh with the new year.. The good news is the 4kgs I lost since I joined SparkPeople is still off and the eating habit is also more or less still healthy .. I am not too worried about those two.. My main problem right now is the exercise .. that is the on...
