That would be a start. Or even 3/4ths then you can go lower. Not sure
how many you were eating.

Or you can give a number on here, like 2 a day which would make it
simple you would just start eating 1 a day.

those are good suggestions Donna. thank you. I am really curious though why my blood sugar and a1c were so good when i ate so many potatoes. I made them in the microwave. For at least a few weeks, i was having at least two every night. I really had a craving for them. Sometimes that was my meal.

I might print that out for my doctor. I hate taking more medication. I had told him once where i read statins can cause diabetes in healthy people...

Hey Mari, i don't know if you have Albertson's in your area, but they used to have a PB "station" ... unsalted peanuts that fed into a grinder, plus plastic containers and a scale for pricing. you could make your own PB, as much or as little as you wanted. no salt, no preservatives. ingredients: peanuts.

Almost sure it was Albertsons. i have a teenzy weenzy uncertainty that it might have been Publix.

Dear Bobby

I've seen your 'thanks' and occasional post, so i know you are here at times, and your presence is reassuring. It's been a good while since we heard how YOU are doing though, and I've been wondering.

How are you these days?

Respond when you feel ok to. Don't feel pressured. Just know that I am thinking about you, and would like to hear from you. I'm sure that others are wondering too.

lots of love and Happy New Year... may it bring you every blessing.

dear Waves
i don't know how i am doing. i have been irritable. I have been angry. I have been a little depressed. I don't know why. I have really been delinquent on the boards. I haven't really felt like going to the senior center. I make myself go most of the time. what is wrong? i felt a lot of pressure last month worrying about my health and not calling the doctor and later learning i could have called him and if anything was really bad he would have called me. maybe all that pressure that didn't need to be has left me like this.
anna karenina turned out to be my most favorite book i have ever read. i am back to read junky books although i have a lot of tolstoy on my kindle. i want to read them. i don't know when i will. i am also tired of dieting and afraid to get on the scale because i have eaten a lot lately. i have been making corn muffins. yummy. i gave up again on eating pastry at the senior center because it really isn't that good. i have been eating a lot of grapefruit which i am now getting bored with.
I did buy Bach's Mass in B minor. it is so beautiful.
i think of you often.
love
bobby

Hi Bobby. I wish you a happy new year. Also when you said grapefruit,a little alarm went off in my mind. Grapefruit doesn't go well with allot of mental health medications.

You probably already know all about this. If you haven't heard of this,please make sure that it isn't interacting with your medications in a harmful way. I just want to make sure that you are safe. BF
