HI!! What you just wrote has made me think of that line: Nothing I could eat will ever make me feel as good as how this feels.
congrats on how super duper
you are doing! You are doing it! Nothing can stop you know! wow!
there is also the line about how nothing succeeds like success!!
Your wife has a pain in her kidneys? That does not sound good to me. Hope the cranberry juice does help that for sure. It is so hard to stop a freight train as it is running down the track!! but when you love someone you have to try I know...
Yesterday at the water class I am in, a Korean lady, another military wife was telling how she has had diabetes for 9 yrs adn is now only on 1 pill, instead of 4 a day... so I had to mention how the vegan diet has been successful in reversing that in a lot of people in type 2 .... she of course right away started to tell me about a show on the tv about a lady who was vegetarian for yrs and yrs and got so sick and to start eating some meat again, and has a small farm and treats her animals so good, etc. So I told myself, don't go down that route ever again let these silly people just kill themselves eating this way... why do I bother anyway? she is slender, but has the diabetic solid big stomach look and big face too. I did say that I have never felt any better in my life and how my liver has cleared up and gallbladder, etc. It is so natural to want to help people but they have to get there themselves. I will not be doing that again!!
And you, Dissolution have done that!! so cool !!
Hey my DH His still doing great on plan of no more beer. Now when he is walking into the house, he usually has some sierra mist and a case of green tea in the garage. Nothing wrong with that compared to the beer, but he also is eating those 2 bowls of ice cream too. that is way too much, so I decided to say something very small about his glucose, which he relay gave up all cakes and cookies for and it worked right away. He really was not ready to deal with that issue, presently, so I did not pursue it any further. I am just very happy not to be confronted with the other issues, but I just see diabetes looming up front as he is switching. Perhaps he is doing one battle at a time. Praying for him, and that is the best thing I can do!
I Love it about your good buddy coming on Memorial Weekend and will be getting the shock of his life!! wouldn't you love to get a picture of his expression when he sees how you look now! I have had that experience with friends, but DH has not said a word, outside of finally giving up on the restaurant issues and hoping I'd go back to candy, candy, etc. He is 7 yrs older than I and talk about set in his ways, but even an old dog can learn a few new tricks I tell him!!
Hey have a great day out there in McDougall land! I am off to start a pot of new brown jasmine rice for us here.
Have a great day out there, and have some fun along the way too!
I have lost about 60 lbs and never thought I'd be in the 150s ever again. cured my NAFLD!! Feel great!! Wt loss is so good for the knees and back, ankle, that I know I will never start back to the SAD way of eating again.
