Nothing new to report on my Thrive experience at this point. I will keep updating as time goes on.
I did start playing the new Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. As always I hate all the eastern paganism but so far the gameplay is done well. I like open world games like Fallout and have been a fan of Zelda since the NES came out with the original gold cartridge with a battery in it.
Anyway a few notible things is the sheer beauty of the land reminds me of how during the millennial reign of Jesus on the earth is going to be more glorious than we can even imagine or invent! I like the hunting and cooking. I like that meat is on the menu not a bunch of pansy foods like so many lame games trying to force their lifestyles on their customers. I also like that while breaking a horse it still has it’s own instincts and “mind”.
Anyway I expect there to be some more garbage as the game progresses with someone trying to shove something down everyone’s throats but so far the game is descent. At this point I am a little concerned the game may be progressing too quickly for the $60 I paid for it but I may be wrong.
Who knows Nintendo might even get 5 stars from me on this.
I’m not sure if it’s the new eating pattern being on Thrive but it seems I only eat one major meal each day and maybe a snack before bed. Also when it’s time to eat it’s time to eat!
Nothing much to say about Thriving today except I am adjusting my shake to Sunday-Wednesday so I didn’t have it today although I am still using the patch and taking the pills. Been eating normally (can’t stand diets) appetite is normal. I can tell by intestinal activity that Thrive is still doing something. Time will tell.
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.
Life is A LOT more than physical and what we can see so I want to occasionally share where my lasting hope comes from. The following link is one of my favorite teachers:
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 (https://northidaho.le-vel.com) 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”.
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.
