how i lost 65 pounds

Postby Kensho » Tue Oct 04, 2011 11:33 am

being on various antipsychotics, anti-depressants, mood stabilizers and anti-convulsants over the years, really took it's toll on my body, mind and spirit... after doing alot of reading and soul searching(ethical principles) i turned toward a well balanced vegan lifestyle 8-9 months ago... within the first five months on this path i lost the 65 pounds i had gained over an eight+ year period... i'm 6foot 2inches tall and my stabilized weight is 205 pounds... under my family doctors advice i take sublingual B12 every other day... i also take wide spectrum mineral supplement capsules and a good B complex vitamin just to cover the bases... i get my proteins from beans, seeds, nuts and legumes... i also eat TVP 3 times per week...

from a physical standpoint i can honestly say i've never felt better in all my life but my schizoaffective symptoms are still present although noticeably less severe... there is something still missing... i meet with an orthomolecular physician october 7th for the first time... i'm hoping this is the key...

It is a possibility to lose weight, but you should be realistic and accept that if you lose weight quickly then you will probably, put it all back on again just fastly. I lost 8 pounds, over the past 3 weeks when I had a wedding to go.

well let's see, that was when? October that i posted that? well i had a followup with one of my new MD's on the 7th of February and i've been off of my meds and symptom free for over two months now, my blood chemistry is like spring water and i lost an additional 3 pounds since i last posted this so so much for your i'm going to gain it all back!!!! :roll: a weak unfocused individual will always fail... i credit all of my success to my new psychologist who practices Somatic psychology... i spent 7+ years in CBT with 5 psychologists and they all sucked as hard as CBT sucks and in less then 3 months i was able to pull it together psychologically to the degree i achieved the gains that led me to post this thread back in October...


so nice try pal...

I'm in the same place as you! :) It is doable to lose a lot of weight, but set a hard goal that is possible. How about 50 pounds in 4 months? That is A LOT of weight and just in time for the middle of summer! :)

Here is how I am losing:

1,500 calories a day...1 hour of walking. I lose about 10-12 pounds a month...then again I am 192 and 5'4..but I look really good at 150ish =]
