    Sometimes it feels like its been forever... and I hit stalls and mental walls and uncover new issues... thats when its good to look back to old photos and remember just how far I've come. I was a mess, both mentally and physically. I'm partly a mess now thanks to all the estrogen the CT has released from my fat, but I can see the end of this... :D

    Wow, first of Congrats!

    My question for you is how did you do it? I have been on LR for 6 weeks...I am seeing some signs of LS, not all of them tho. I do believe my cortisol is messed. I will need to test for this thru a natropath, which costs money I don't have a this time.

    Did your monitor your calories? When did you start to lose the lbs? I hope you will give us a few more details, as I am struggling with wanting to lose more, its just not happening :)

    Thank you and you are a inspiration to us all!

    Hi Glam! I'm Mamma2Groklets (from Aus) on MDA. How are you doing CT? I know you were doing a lot of frozen gel packs. Do you do baths as well?

    I've done spot-CT over my waist/belly daily for a month, and did submerges once a week up until this week. Now I plan on doing full soaks every evening. I think it will help me speed up the process of healing. I'm such a mess atm (insomnia, hormones) that I think I need this CT to work faster... Submerges are more efficient than just spot-CT. :)

    Hi, I never monitored calories. In 9 months I have typed in my daily meals into FitDay twice (out of curiousity) to get a rough idea of what my macros looked like. So the percentages were the following: fat 70, protein 20, carbs 10. The fat is mostly CO, as I need it to heal both my gut, liver and thyorid.

    I lost huge numbers initially, 2.2.-3 lbs pr week in the first month. Then it slowed down to about 1 lb pr week... and it got slower and slower the lower my BMI became. Average loss over 9 months has been a little less than 1 pound weekly (300 grams). So its slow... very slow. But in total I shed 47 pounds of fat, bone- and muscle-mass stayed exactly the same, which is very good news!

    After the intital first 5 months, it felt like I've hit stall after stall after stall. I still have about 10-15 pounds to lose, but if I go by scales its not budging. Going by body comp, my guess is that I've packed on muscle... I am a whole size smaller but weighs the same as I did 6 weeks ago.

    Healing is a slow process. If you suspect cortisol-issues, the Rx- and CT will be your best friends. Look at the sun first thing upon rising (or light of any source really), eat within 30 min, after sunset, keep light in the house to a minimum/wear yellow-tinted glasses. Doing this for a bit should help restore some balance. CT-sessions after dinner is good for DHEA, I find I'm always sleepy and ready for bed after CT.

    Right back at you, gorgeous avatar you got there!

    I feel like I have zero insight comapred to the brainer kids doing the CT/Leptin, all the science goes straight over my head. But I've had a few aha-moments and light-bulbs going off lately, I'm glad this can help others.

    Glam - did you find a lab to get telomeres tested in Australia? On the biggest loser the doc seems to be using some kind of test for their biological age. His name is Dr. Norman Swan

    I get a test done at my naturpoath's office, its not telomeres but estimates biological age based on things like weight/height, muscle/fat ratio, bone density. Last month I was 30... In Sep I was 46. :) I am in fact 31.

    Totally hear you Glam on setting a goal by BF percentage. It says so much more than just weight.

    Congrats on the losses. So glad the CT is going well for you. It is the ticket if you can handle it... and I don't mean the cold but the toxin dumping...!

    Yes for sure! My friend now weighs less than me by a couple of pounds, but it's all fat. I'm 2 sizes smaller than her in clothes!!
