November 17, 2009--226.5 Pounds

Had to post today since this is a 2 pound loss from yesterday. Not that I did anything unusual from my 2,000 to 2,500 calorie routine and no exercise because of the photo editing. It's just my body getting back to where it wants to be.

If/when someone unlocks the key to that control room and people will have the ability to in essences "reset the body thermostat" to burn off excessive fat, that could be a fantastic day for humanity. Or a disaster. Right now people tend to show some self control because of the consequences suffered from overeating. If the consequences could be erased with a pill, it would be very tempting to eat 4,000-5,000 calories a day.

What would be the harm in that you ask? Well, think of the stress on the body of bringing in all that food and then burning it up. Sort of like keeping a furnace going at the maximum temperature all day. Do that day after day, year after year, and systems break down. We could all look slim and trim on the outside while we prematurely age on the inside.

Not that we have to really worry about all that. Someone will find the key and then they will get a patent and charge a fortune for their discovery. Even if the medication costs 10 cents to make, they will charge $1,000 or more for a one-month diet package. And they will probably need that money to fight off the class action lawsuits that follow every new wonder drug. Helping humanity is a nice thought, but the bottom line is going to be the focus when people start finding ways to alter our genetics.
