Success At Weight Loss, Finally

Have you always wanted an easy way to be slender?
*
I have.
*
On Spark People, when I read some people get back to normal weight when they start measuring portions, I knew that would be me.
*
It wasn’t.
*
Then they said some people who stop inhaling their food, get to normal weight.
*
Nope, didn’t do it.
*
Tracking calories does it for some.
*
No.
*
I really expected each of these steps to be it. I remember deciding very strongly to stay slender when I was young.
*
Nine days ago, I found what works for me.
*
The catch is, you have to have been infected with helicobacter pylori AND you need to have vague enough symptoms that you never sought treatment for it AND you have to have misinterpreted your stomach’s discomfort as hunger.
*
I also tried those hypnosis programs where you only eat when you are hungry. Hello. I always felt hungry.
*
Nine days ago, My husband started treatment for helicobacter pylori because of excessive bloating. The doctor suggested I take treatment also so we don’t reinfect each other. (Gross.)
*
Okay, fine, I was happy to do it. Almost immediately, I stopped feeling hungry soon after eating. I eat breakfast and start working and next thing I know it’s 11 AM or later.
*
I used to eat breakfast at 7 and look for something by 9 AM and 10 AM. If I went out, even for two hours, I took raw vegetables or nuts with me. If I got hungry and didn’t eat something, it would go into uncomfortable nausea. A little food relieved it. My acupuncturist told me in Eastern medicine, nausea that is relieved by food is a classic symptom of an ulcer. I don’t have an ulcer but I was likely on the way to one.

So without doing anything different, except the big difference of not wanting to eat all the time, my weight is down to 149.5 pounds. It was 155, nine days ago.
*
The doctor said we’ve had this for 15 or 20 years. Unchecked it is connected with ulcers.
*
Ten or more years ago I started a weight loss program to combat my weight gain that crept up slowly.
*
They recommended a 1200 cal diet. I could do it by will for about three days and then I would binge so they said to eat 1500 calories and lose more gradually.
*
I aimed for 1500 and often went to 1700 or 1800 or beyond.
*
I keep track of my calories and now I find it is very easy to eat 1400. Before this, at the end of the day I would be looking for something low calorie that I could “fill’ up on.
*
50% of those over 50 years of age have H. Pylori.
*
I told my doctor about my good fortune and he laughed and said he wished he lost weight on the treatment. The reality is, unless you have H. Pylori AND are misinterpreting discomfort as hunger, this won’t work for you. If this helps even one other person, I will be very happy. Heck I am ecstatic already.

I know, the proof is in the pudding. So far I love this past week’s pudding.

Addendum: One week later, my pudding crashed. This past week on 1500 calories a day, I have maintained my weight. No more lovely pounds dropping away. sigh. It was fun. Now I need to exercise more and eat less. XD
