Weight Loss

Anonymous,  NSW, Australia

Since regularly attending Universal Medicine events my body has gone through the following changes:

My weight has gone from 91.5kg to 69.5kg, or from a BMI of 27 to 21. The first 10kg through dieting (I was in a hurry and decided off my own bat to do something), the next 12kg happened by themselves.

I drank almost daily until five years ago and have never had any alcohol since. The interesting thing is that I don’t miss alcohol at all.

I drank my last decaf coffee two years ago because drinking a cup was like being kicked and I was unpleasantly racy for two hours afterwards. I love the taste of coffee but even decaf (let alone caffeinated) coffee is no fun.

The upside is that I have no problem working eight hours a day, six days a week, sometimes longer, and I don’t fade at all after lunch and am only pleasantly tired in the evening.

My blood pressure has gone from 125 to 109 and sometimes as low as 98, which is pretty good for a male aged 53. I had elevated cholesterol 10 years ago and my cholesterol is now deep in the healthy zone.

I regularly took multi vitamin pills in the past but gradually reduced it to one a week, one a fortnight, one a month and now no pills at all. When I took a vitamin pill during a very stressful time two years ago my urine turned a very bright orange which in the past only happened when I took too many vitamin pills, so I didn’t take any more.

  1. Shame this one is anonymous because of the significant changes that have occurred. I was never a big fan of diets or health programs. I did eat my version of healthy but it was very inconsistent and had a lot of moving pieces. A few years ago now I was over the taste and the feeling alcohol gave me and so I stopped and with that decision I lost some weight by default. Around the same time dairy milk was making me feel very unwell and the smell almost made me throw up and so I stopped drinking or eating dairy. This was easy because of how the smell was for me and by default I lost some more weight. There are other points as well but in the past 7 years I’ve dropped about 27 kgs and now my weight has been very consistently the same for about 2 years. I didn’t diet or changed anything deliberately to achieve a goal. I just stopped doing things that I no longer liked or felt good to me and by default other things changed.

  2. Thank you Anno, and defenitely the benefits are endless when we say no to that which is not from truth and therefore harmful to our bodies and yes to more of the love that we are.

  3. Since starting to do the work as being a student of the Ageless Wisdom is called, my health has improved in ways that most would struggle to believe was possible with no medication to the point that at 67 I would say that my health is the best it has been since I was 17.

  4. What a living miracle you are, this is a great example of how loving choices bring true healing to the body – well done for your commitment to yourself.

  5. 10 years ago I was around 74kg, today I am 54kg. I am not sure what my BMI is but apparently the medical profession labels me borderline anorexic, yet I have never felt so healthy and I love my food. Is what we consider normal with weight really normal or just where we have all sunk to?

  6. I know my health and definitely improved since attending Universal Medicine .. it is a shame I didn’t have a record of before and after statistics as you did to see exactly what has changed and by how much.

  7. It is such a joy to read again and again that the truth I have found for myself about food choices is actually not a truth of my own because as so many come to the same truth of what our food choices can do to the body and our overall wellbeing, you can say it is a universal truth many and I have connected to.

  8. I get the feeling all these changes happened not by you tackling them head on, as in you didn’t go out of your way to reduce your cholesterol or try hard to die up alcohol. It seems they were all by-products of the way you chose to live. Which if we flip the coin and look at our health and wellbeing in relation to the way we live – perhaps it’s not about addressing the problems and symptoms but about how we are living.

    1. I couldn’t agree more Nikki, I found that when I focused on dieting the whole process was a huge struggle, but when I let that go and then concentrated on how my body felt when I let things go (emotionally and food wise) the weight came off on its own accord. It was not instant but because I was feeling healthier in myself I did not have the push to shift the weight, but felt confident that it would go in its own time.

  9. Sounds like your new way of being is truly supporting your vitality too. It is also interesting to note that there is a lot more to consider than dieting to return to our natural weight and true well ‘being’.

  10. What you have shared here Anonymous is that you can indeed bring vitality and wellbeing from how you live, the supplements can support, but it is very much how you move and live that makes all the difference.

  11. Lifestyle choices have a big impact on well… our lifestyles! Going on a diet may achieve something but what you have described is a whole new way of living and it seems the proof is in the pudding.

  12. Why do we feel we need to hide when we have so many amazing miracles of true change happening in our lives. It is an indictment on society that when someone has returned to living more true and joyful they feel they need to hide it away because not many are truly open, embracing and accepting of their reflection. I love the reminder that there is no perfectionism in true responsibility.

  13. As a result of initiating more loving choices to the way in which we are living, it is possible to feel the ease at which the body reharmonises and rebalances itself. The focus becomes not on losing weight but a whole lifestyle change and the body naturally discarding what does not belong.

  14. I find that the more I love myself and care for myself, the less I feel the need for foods or drinks that offer reward, comfort or stimulation. As a result my body has settled into a more natural weight, BMI, and I sleep better having more energy as a consequence.

  15. A beautiful change to the way you live, for myself I have found choosing not to drink alcohol or coffee a great choice, because both of them used to stop me from being able to truly connect with myself, now through more self loving choices I am able to look after myself much more lovingly.

  16. Developing our relationship with self allows us to be honest about the consequences of what we ingest through all our senses, for in truth when we live from our essence there is no need of stimulation or dulling as we understand that life evolves around the awareness within.
