271 for the second day! I hope my weight loss has leveled off for awhile. It was too much too fast. With cancer you always need to be concerned with the wasting away syndrome. While I do want to lose a lot of weight, I want it to be a controlled lost in a healthy way. I'm still trying to hold on to as much of my muscle mass as possible and lose mostly fat tissue. Hard to do with my hormone depletion therapy but I'm trying to fight the good fight! I feel pretty good today. I plan on going for a walk in a little while and maybe even do a light upper body weightlifting workout latter!

Finally my weight loss has seemed to stabilized. I weighted 273 this morning. As I have in the past, I usually drop down to a low weight for the moment and then rebound a few pounds and level off for awhile. I hope this is the current situation. My too rapid weight loss was scaring me. I want to lose weight but in a much more controlled and safe manner. I think my taking probiotics and enzymes has helped improve my gut and I am feeling much better. My chronic cough has even improved but is still with me. I have had a lot of obstacles in my recovery the past 20 months but I'm still hopeful I'm going to beat my cancer. Never say quit!

272 this morning. I usually don't weight my self so often but with all the recently rapid weight loss I want to keep on top of this. Again I feeling pretty good today. Well rested and my energy levels are good. I did a lot of walking through out the day yesterday and was a little tired last evening but I think it was all for the better. I'm going to try to be fairly active again today and see how it goes. Still have a cough and voice is still affected. Hope this clears up soon!

273. Appetite is good. My cough is slowly getting better. And my energy levels are great. I can only pray this all continues and I can return to my exercise program once again. For the time being I am only walking every day.

272 this morning. I appear to be holding around a stable body weight once again. So I will probably stop weighting myself every day for awhile and go back to about once a week. Going to do some walking today and depending how I feel, start a light exercise program on Monday. It will be good to get back in the gym once again. I have been juicing a lot the past three days. Mostly carrot juice. It's a little too sweet for me so I am going to experiment adding other veggies for both taste and added nutrition.

I said I wasn't going to weigh myself everyday for awhile as I though my weight had stabilized. However I was wrong. I had a bad day yesterday. Upset stomach and not able to eat. So I weighted in at 270 this morning. Stomach a lithe better but not much. I hope I can eat more today and hold my weight steady for awhile. I also took a long nap in the afternoon yesterday. I don't usually nap during the day but I felt I needed it. So I didn't get in the walk I hope to take. Very low energy. I seem to be up and down. Tired on living on the roller coaster!

Held at 268 today. Was up in the middle of the night with dry heaves. My stomach is still upset this morning. Is this my next stage of cancer or is this from my throat problems? Or are my throat problems caused by my cancer? The questions just keep going around and around in my head. I really don't know. I just need to take one day at a time doing the most positive things I can to take care of myself and pray for the best!

267. My weight just keeps going down. I could hardly eat at all yesterday. I didn't take any of my meds this morning hoping that maybe they might be one of the factors that are upsetting my stomach. We will see. If they are, then I have to get to my Doctors to figure out what to do next.

266. The good news is I was able to eat a little more yesterday. Not a lot but at least I got some nourishment down and keep it down.

266. Able to eat a little more again yesterday. Bu not able to stomach my green smoothies yet. The thought of them turns my stomach at the present time. But I know I need to get back to them soon!

266 and holding. Appetite is a little better. My wife and I are going out to the dam this morning as it is still cool and walk the causeway. It will be good to be in the sun!

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!
