Weight loss and foreskin restoration
Everyone knows that losing weight is healthy and good for you. Right?
Seven years ago I started my own business. I was a little overweight at that time, and the stress of running my own business and the lack of time to exercise and play ensured that I stayed overweight. I even gained a couple pounds a year over the last five years. I was not satisfied with my sedentary lifestyle and my slowly increasing body girth.
This spring I found Mark's Daily Apple, a website that promotes primal living. I always liked eating low carb and high fat food. I felt full and satisfied eating that way, not at all like when I ate a low fat diet and was always hungry. I first started eating low carb, high fat about 13 years ago when I was on the Atkins Diet. I followed it for a couple years, but I grew lax about following the program. The pounds returned as my eating habits leaned more toward high carb and processed foods.
Reading Mark's Daily Apple inspired me to watch what I ate and to start exercising in earnest. I became better at strictly keeping my carbs low. Controlling my eating habits helped me lose weight and the exercise has made me feel more alive. I have been losing about 1 to 2 pounds a week for several months.
That is good, isn't it?
After a couple of years restoring my foreskin, I have had full flaccid coverage with a bit of overhang for the past 2 years. I stayed covered all day. With that much coverage, I stopped tugging in earnest. I still tugged, but not a lot. I did manual method 2 in the shower almost every day. But that was about it. I was happy with my coverage and had little motivation to continue tugging as much as I used to.
OK, so what is the bad news?
Usually when I get out of the shower my foreskin keeps me covered. But not too long ago I noticed that I was not covered when I got out of the shower. I ignored it once. But after a few days of noticing my lack of coverage I started wondering what was going on. On the Coverage Index I had been at least a CI-7 when flaccid, usually a CI-8. But suddenly I was a CI-6, sometimes a CI-5. Huh? Where did my foreskin go?
Being an engineer, I like to measure things. So, I decided to measure myself. First I measured my flaccid length. That is when the light bulb lit up. My flaccid length was 3/8 inch longer than it was last year. My erect length was also 3/8 inch longer. That is when I remembered that losing weight causes the fat pad on the abdomen to decrease. The thinner fat pad causes more of the penis to be exposed. I recalled reading that losing 30 pounds or so will make a man's penis longer by about an inch.
Well, at the time I measured I was down 20 pounds. And the extra 3/8 inch of exposed length was nice. But I want my foreskin coverage back!
I am once again motivated to restore. Losing my flaccid coverage makes me appreciate what I had. I want it back. I am now manual tugging two to three times a day.
I am still losing weight. Currently I am down almost 30 pounds and I have gained 1/2 inch of length since I started. Unfortunately, I am gaining penis length faster than I am growing foreskin length. But I will catch up because I will stop losing weight before my foreskin stops growing.
