You too.

Happily ignorant of what a1C even is. I hope it stays that way!

Oh no, I beat it (for now, anyway). April of 2014 my a1c was pushing fourteen and blood glucose was near 350. My last three six month checkups with no meds have been normal. That's all thanks to adhering to the SparkPeople plan. Funny what a fire it lights under your butt when you think you're gonna lose limbs or go blind. That was a wakeup call for me. My plateau is kind of voluntary, but I do need to drop a few more pounds. I find that slow and easy is what lasts for me. I've lost weight in a hurry before and then gained it back nearly as fast. This time, I'm staying on the path.

I put Yellowstone on that list of stuff that I can worry about or not since as you say, there sure ain't nothin' I can do about it. Kinda like taxes? In my dotage, I've chosen not to sweat the stuff, big or little. Makes for a much more peaceful existence. Have a great week!

There have been truly terrible sci fi disaster movies about Yellowstone. I'm a Geologist too and guess what - there is nothing we can do about the risk other than not to be there.

Sorry about the diabetes. Make best friends with your Doc. Took my a half century not to see people in white coats as mortal enemies dedicated to making me miserable.

Drink watrer too. Oodles.

That freaked me out when I first discovered it. I was looking for cheap or free camping around the park and I Googled "Yellowstone". Holy crap! Most of the hits were about the volcano (that I didn't even know was there) about to erupt and destroy the world as we know it. Also, a lot about the government coverup of same. Quite a shock to the unsuspecting. I know what you mean about being content. I found out I was Diabetic after one of those periods of contentment and went back to work until my glucose was normal again. Now though, I seem to be stuck on a plateau twenty-five pounds from my ultimate goal. I'm hoping nice weather will inspire the final push. Nice to know there's still somebody stirring in the group!

Nary a soul.

Weight loss (and even weight maintenance) in the final analysis, is an individual activity. The social side of Spark, accordingly, can get as dormant as the big volcano under Yellowstone National Park. Old Faithful reminds us its there, but easy to put out of mind Just saying.

(Meanwhile, my belly kinda goes no place, and I have found resigned contenment in being a relatively physically fit middle aged guy. Just saying).
