Unknown Consequences of Gaining Weight

Regular readers will know that I have admitted in this space to being obese. Friends and acquaintances know now that's no longer true (compare that current picture against the one on the Way Back Machine). Yep, I've lost over 70 pounds, and am well within reach of my college/high school weight.

And I'll get there.

But on the way, some interesting things have happened. I no longer take high blood pressure medicine. All that weight, according to my doctor, has lost miles of blood vessels and dropped about two pints of blood that my heart no longer pumps.

Whoa Nellie!

Imagine, then, my surprise at this news: California's Carcinogen Identification Committee will consider on Monday, November 1, 2004, whether to add Verapamil to the list of chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer.

I took that medicine. Not that long ago.

Need any motivation to lose weight?
