    Are you on a diet to lose weight?

    ok I'm quitting this diet I'm on. I've been on it too long with no results. I think i'm basically keto with a bit lower fat. I can't believe i'm not losing. I'm staying with no grains (occasional cheat) because I'm able to get out and walk again (limited) which I attribute to the no grains. I'm basically cutting out a lot of meat, much lower fat (my precious cheese!) and adding fruit and beans. Lets see how it goes! (and i'm going to let myself have a bit of no sugar ice cream)

    A Thread For Humor

    A lawyer and an engineer were fishing in the Caribbean. The lawyer said, "I'm here because my house burned down, and everything I owned was destroyed by the fire. The insurance company paid for everything." "That's quite a coincidence," said the engineer. "I'm here because my house and all my belongings were destroyed by a flood, and my insurance company also paid for everything." The lawyer looked somewhat confused. "How do you start a flood?" he asked.

    @janice21475 - I must echo what @Hammer wrote. I was stupid and did not see a doctor for a good 15 years. I knew there were things wrong with me and simple fear kept me from going. I finally went and found what was really wrong with me was serious but not quite as bad as the fear. 3 years in now... At first, I had to see my PCP every 3 months, then every 6 months, now it is once a year. He jokes that I am one of the healthiest diabetics he has come across. I still test daily and if something starts to go wrong, I can come see him anytime. I had to see the ophthalmologist every 6 months but he relaxed that to once a year since my eyes seem to be fine and my A1c is normal. He jokes around with me too and asks me if I really have diabetes. The dermatologist is the not so fun doctor. Every 3 months for now. I have a lot of body work. The first couple spots were kind of big. The most recent on my arm was not too bad though. I went for a mohs surgery and they got it in the first pass. It wasn't any worse than the biopsy the dermatologist took. I have one more on my scalp to look at. The good thing is they are smaller and we catch them early because I go see him so often. Please go get checked out more often! ~ Mike

    Janice, don't wait so long to see your doctor. Avoiding the doctor can only result in serious health issues, and I don't want that to happen to you. I see my doctor every 4 months, and that's because I have my health issues under control. I used to see her every three months, but she saw that I had my health issues under control, she she started making my appointments for every four months. I'm sure that if I asked her, she would make them for every six months, but I don't want to wait that long between appointments. At my age (66), anything can develop in six months, so I'd much rather get checked out every four months....just to make sure that nothing new has developed. Please don't wait too long too see your doctor....seeing your doctor more often could possibly save your life.

    93 this morning. I thought the trades would bring some relief but yesterday was still hot and humid. Had a few rain showers overnight which helped cool things down a bit.

    Are you on a diet to lose weight?

    299.8 I don't know why this 300 threshold is so hard to break and keep. Should I eat less fat? i've been eating mozzarella and making my own chocolates out of coconut oil and cocoa-but I have not been eating very much of it. Really a few small bites a day. I've been mostly just eating meat and salad.
