'No,' I said, 'no different at all.'
But there are some changes. What would be the point if there weren't. I'm taking less pills for my blood pressure. The psoriasis on my knees and elbows has almost completely gone. I'm wearing trousers with 8 inches smaller waists than I was 5 and a half months ago. My feet don't hurt in the morning (they still hurt but for different reasons - e.g. I dropped a log on my toe yesterday, and then I went for a 5km run) No leaky bum. And in a general thing, I believe less stinkiness generally associated with the products of that region (I may be wrong about this)
But one of the things that I really wanted to be better I am not sure if I have any real way of judging. I really wanted my brain to work better. I think my brain is ok, but I was hoping that the blood vessels to my brain would be wider, freer, delivering more oxygen and nutrients to a brain deprived of these things for years. I was hoping to achieve a zen-like state of bliss, or a super-human intellect.
Neither of these things have come to pass. Just as clumsy as ever. Still struggling with the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation.
But maybe if I lose the other stone that I've got to lose. Maybe then my brain will start to zip.
