Thanks for the links. I bet my problem is poor posture. My belly probably used to stop me from slouching forward, now that it is diminishing, I bet I am slouching more. I still have my gall bladder, and have never had any trouble out of it....that I know of.nicoles
You can smell when he has had dairy, coffee or sugar? He is understandably freaked out, let us all hope that you use your Super Vegan Powers for good over evil. Katydid
Thanks for that great information. I think I can use that to plan out a strategy. First though I will need to set an objective. Hmmm...Adrienne
My wife believes that jealousy is a sign of love. My lack of jealousy she attributed to anything from arrogance to apathy. Because I love her, I want her to be happy, not possess her. So if it would make her happier to be with someone else or away from me, then so be it.MixedGrains
LOl, thanks for the laugh. Of course she has eaten and enjoyed foie gras, so it might be suitable.Debbie
My wife and my mother went to battle a couple of times early in our marriage. I think I made it perfectly clear to both of them, that I would pick my wife's side over my mother's. I once didn't speak to my mother for six months. They will now, on occasion spend time together without me even being there. My wife used to get jealous that we lived 30 minutes from my mother, and 22 hours from hers. Now my mother is alive and hers isn't.carollynne
So sorry to hear about how your Uncle died. Sounds like he did make a positive final impression.
If you stick with the main stream though, there's nothing really wrong with mac'n'cheese for diabetics. Sugar causes diabetes, EVERYBODY knows that, silly. janluvs2heel
Trust me, if she found my journal, I would know. It would be like one of those movies, where the guy walks through the door, and the knife flies through the air and sticks into the wall right next to his head.
The wife and I rarely eat at the same time anymore, and I also don't normally eat in the same room as her. Last I did. I started with a Japanese sweet potato that I had sliced, partially boiled and then broiled in the oven with a little brown sugar and cinnamon on top. Then I had steamed broccoli and red cabbage, with some nutritional yeast on top. Then I ate a stew with broccoli stalk, red cabbage, black beans, potato, red pepper, leeks. It was a pretty large bowl, the wife commented, "You eat more food than anybody I have ever seen.". I said, "I know, awesome isn't it?." She would be horrified if I told her she was consuming twice the calories I was. Maybe I should, I don't think it would have the desired effect though.
I've been thinking about the information that Katydid posted. I think it's a technique I could use. First though I need to set an objective. One simple to complete, yet effective task. Watch Forks Over Knives? The Starch Solution? Barnard's Reversing Diabetes video? Maybe something tougher like, giving up half'n'half or eating McDougall for a week?
The wife made some comment to me at the Japanese restaurant about not wanting me to give us bad karma (something was missing from our bill, and I didn't notice) I told her, "Don't get me started on karma." She said. "why?", I said, "Because nothing had to suffer and die for my dinner." Her reply was,"Plants. You killed plants, it's the same thing." I just shook my head and said,"You REALLY think that?"
#3 and #4 and #4GF came in last night with a bunch of bags from the grocery store. They had decided to make home made chicken fajita's. #4 then proceeded to demonstrate, "How to get food poisoning". There were raw chicken parts and pieces and juice all over the place! I think I would have been upset with the preparation, even before my vegan days.
I just had to go get some cold medicine for the wife. She has a full blow chest cold now. She asked, "Why is this stuff always happening to ME now?" There was a pause, then she said, "If you say what you are thinking out loud, I'll have to kill you." How did she know? lol
After a week long vacation and another week, getting back on track, weight-loss has recommenced. Down a pound this morning.
