Wednesday Weigh-In 20160622

I've started taking two new supplements: GABA Calm and L-Tryptophan. I have absolutely no anxiety, and I'm not anymore depressed than before. The dull apathy I was experiencing is all gone. The range of motion in my shoulder is so much better, but I still have some pain.

I decided to stop taking Lexapro. Instead, I'll follow the guidelines in Trudy Scott's "The anti-anxiety food solution : how the foods you eat can help you calm your anxious mind, improve your mood, & end cravings." Ever since I started Lexapro I had pains in my right shoulder and elbow, very low motivation, tiredness and apathy, and weight gain. The pains remind me of what I experienced when I ate corn, so it might be due to the fillers in the pill. Anyway I expect the tiredness and pains to be gone within seven days, which is about how long it took for me to improve under the Blood Type Diet.

The numbers are the same as last week's. Our dishwasher has been broken for a couple of weeks. My routine used to be that I'd load the dishwasher and turn it on before going to bed. And to motivate myself to do that, I'd eat a snack while loading it. But it's harder to eat a snack while washing dishes, so I may be eliminating some extra calories.

Okay, it's Tuesday, but I was naked and standing near my scale, so I figured, "Why not do a weigh-in?" It's quite dismal news, I know. I think the Lexapro might be contributing to the rising numbers. I'd weigh more, but I lost a lot of water overnight due to steaming in the hot, humid air.

Sorry about the lack of posts.  Spring is here, and I feel a bit more energized.

All the improvements in fitness that I achieved by starting a lower-carb version of the Blood Type Diet eight years ago are nearly all gone. I'm too lazy and apathetic to care right now.

Lately I've been wondering why we swallow probiotic supplements. I read in "Gut" that most of our gut bacteria live in the large intestine. An abundance of bacteria in the stomach or small intestine is considered bacterial overgrowth and is unpleasant to experience. So I think probiotics should be supplied as suppositories.
