265. The good news is this is a total loss of 95 pounds since I first became aware of my prostate problems a year ago last February. That an average of 5.27 pounds loss every month. It has been very slow going except for the past few weeks. But I rather do it slow than so fast that it injures my health. At this rate, I should be about 245 by Christmas which would be good. My over all goal is to get below 200 and then reassess where I'm at. Over weight men have more prostate cancer relapses than thin ones. They tend to convert their testosterone to estrogen which increases their risk levels. So getting thinner is part of my over all plan to beat my cancer. That plus clean vegan diet as organic as I can without any processed foods and 50 to 80 % raw. Cut out as many pollutants in my my life as possible. Filtered drinking water and in my shower. I've changed all my personal hygiene products to those without chemicals, dyes, fluorides, aluminum, etc. I'm trying to keep my pH to 7.2 or higher as cancer can not exist in an alkaline environment. I'm also trying to work with my new Alternative Medicine Doctor to treat my prostate cancer in a natural manner. No more of main stream cancer treatment's "Standard of Care" of cut, burn, or poison, that is surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. However all the supplements etc are very expensive and are not covered by medical insurance even though it less expensive than all the drugs, chemo, etc of standard care. Go figure!
