    Funny, I was thinking that same exact thing. . .is the BHRT really helping. Not sure.

    On another note, you are doing so FANTASTIC! It has been awhile since I read your thread. 6 months ago it seemed like you had totally stalled out. What did you do to start losing again?


  5. I keep pondering this direction as well. I see people "trying X" only to start a cascade of other things that go wrong.

    i could say that it was the round of HCG, and it may be, however that round stoped july 21 so something else is also happening.

    So exciting! I thought I read something about you doing a metal detox? Did you do that? Wondering if maybe that had something to do with it. Also, have you been on BHRT a long time or is that a new thing?

    BHRT almost a year.

    Metal Detox was done couple months back. I use the sulphur now when the spirit moves me

    So then your weight loss probably isn't a result of the BHRT (unless you maybe started applying it differently?). Do you think the metal detox has anything to do with it? Do you feel different now than before the detox?

    had not actually thought about it as feeling better. detox was rough emotionally. lots of anger came out.

    This is a few months later and I don't know your BHRT status. I wonder if sometimes an intervention is useful over a short period of time until the body recovers it's own pathways. If you are male and under a certain age and have needed BHRT for a certain time but feel you no longer need it, it could be an intuitive sense to at least experiment how you feel without it. I know you can look at your labs to verify. But if your gut is telling you something, I guess that's when it could be useful to use labs to see if it matches up with your gut feeling. So you used BHRT for a time and maybe you don't need them right now. And maybe using them would be something in the future. But for now, which is what you want to focus on it's very possible that you actually don't need them.
