Day 14

There are starting to be rumors around me that my attitude is changing a bit since I started Thriving for the better. I don’t know we’ll see. No significant increase of energy but my girth doesn’t feel so “pressurized”. Also having an acne outbreak all over my body. Possibly toxins being released fom Thrive?


Day 7

Still doing Thrive. I think this is day seven. Could possibly be having a little more energy but if I am it is almost imperceptible. Appetite is curbed for the most part; only occasionally it seems my appetite is normal. Only time will tell.

Day 3

This morning when I got around I had my typical voracious breakfast appetite. Then I put the new daily Thrive patch on and took the pills and waited 30 minutes for the “shake”. Then I did my daily Bible study. After Bible study I drank the shake (half dose):

(I literally feel like Bugs acts here when I drink it)

and had my cold pressed hot coffee.

The half dose “shake” did curb my appetite but I’m not convinced at this point that it curbed it enough. You got to understand: curbing my appetite is a really big deal for me. If I feel like I’m starving I will easily binge and walk away from the diet in disgust.

I may continue to experiment with the half dose but I gotta be careful not to screw around so much I start hating the diet.

Day 2

Again, one thing that is quite significant and happened right away with Thrive is the curbing of my appetite. I don’t have the voracious appetite I usually have when eating like a vegetarian or on other diets that lack hunger satisfaction and actual nutrition. Still not noticing much of an increase of energy yet other than what is typical for me.

My weight hovers around 270 pounds. I have done many different things to reduce it (exercising and diets). Only to get discouraged after a month when I lose very little to nothing. From what I understand Thrive ( recommends doing their program for six weeks to start getting results. Therefore I am not going to bother checking it until 04.04.2017. 
I don’t believe I have to be the weight that modern medicine thinks I have to be. Our vain culture always goes too far in it’s idolatries (even with educated professionals who are afraid to die) I would be happy around 200 or at most 220 and think a loss of 50-70 pounds is enough to ward off “fat man diabetes”.

Thrive “Shake”

I was a little confused as I started the Thrive program because you buy a month’s worth of product but the “shake” only has fifteen days of use. But the person I got it from explained you are supposed to do one drink a day for four days and three off. I guess the “shake” helps increase metabolism.

I don’t care for the taste of the chocolate “shake” but I treat it like it’s medicine and drink it fast which makes it easier that you only have to have it once a day. It is a little better watered down. Someone told me they only do half a dose a day (of the shake) and can thus take it everyday for a month. I might try that but I don’t want to deviate too much from the recommended plan.

And here is my shameless plug for my Thrive promoters link:

“Thriving” Skeptic

I have some genetic health complications and recently my doctor became concerned that because of my weight as it might be adding to my problem diabetes.

I hate diabetes! I’ve seen the effects of it. Don’t get me wrong I am a born again Christian only trusting in the work Jesus did for me! So for me: to live is Christ and to die is gain (Philippians 1:21 KJB)! But it is better for others if I remain here for a while longer (Philippians 1:23-24 KJB). I am not afraid to die like most in my culture because I KNOW where I’m going when I die. If you’re not sure check out

So I am going to try a new thing which I have heard a lot of good about. But I am VERY skeptical of fad diets. What makes it even more suspicious is it is some sort of multi-level marketing situation. But on the other hand I also understand it is a fortune 500 company. You don’t make it to F500 unless people are buying your product. Besides diet products that don’t work fade away and don’t make it to F500. At least that’s my theory.

Here is the info:

So although I am signed up as a promoter with them I am also going to be a skeptical user of the product and will be sharing that here. I am not going to be a mindless sales clone but will try to be honest to the best of my understanding. 

Also to be brutally honest if you sign up under me (with the provided link) I will get my product free (or cheaper?) and might even get paid. But personally if I were you and didn’t need to do it urgently I would just wait and see what my opinion is of the product through these posts first.
