It can be very hard to see other people struggle with their weight and health. One of my good friends is obese and I would LOVE to help her. But, she has never asked, so I leave it alone. Even the people who do ask me, usually never try low carb. The sad fact is that most people do not want to give up the cupcakes.

I didn't think anyone was paying attention to me..lol. I am doing fine. This morning I was down to 221.8, and been doing walking/ bike riding 30-45 minutes a day, plus doing strength training 6 days a week with resistance bands and a couple 20 lb weights. Not going crazy with it, just want to maintain some muscle while I am losing.

I am eating beans now, with no problem whatsoever, which helps me stay regular.

I do kind of burn out at times with SP. Since I was so close to dying, and my results are so exciting it kind of makes me sad to visit the diabetes team page, and know that most won't follow low carb .. " cuz it's dangerous!! ". So they are waiting to go blind, lose a kidney or a foot, because the doctors tell them it is healthy to eat 50% carbs. It gets kind of depressing

Personally I have upped my carbs, because I seemed to lose real fast, then feel bad, so I am around 50 net carbs, which seems to be fine. I seem to be able to eat a higher amount of carbs, and still lose, as long as I don't eat certain foods. I have upped my red meat intake, since I upped it some, and my HDL climbed to 37. So now I eat ground beef every other day, and sausage every day with breakfast to up my saturated fats.

I feel the best I have in months, and knowing people missed me, just makes me feel even better..lol.

Glad he's ok- I got used to seeing him around.

1. Stop wasting money- Save money

2. Exercise- do something every day

3. Get organized- mise en place

4. Write a letter by hand at least once a week.

I hope someone will not only worry about me if I go AWOL, but will come after me, too!

Cool! I'm glad you saw that update, Woubbie. I was just going to ask the same question. Glad he's ok.

Looks like he just updated his status, and now that I checked back, he has a new blog up too. Glad I'm not the only one who worries about him and a couple of other folks when they go dormant for a few days!

I don't believe I've seen (?) heard a peep since he posted about going to Subway?
