Y'all are doing great on your diets! In spite of sticking to mine but not eating as much, I'm gaining. The doctor says it's the vitamin D dificiency. I wish we could get it under control. Well I'm off to Phoenix house hunting on Aug 8 for a week. My house has been on the market for almost 2 weeks now and there have been showings at least 4-5 times a week. Hoping it sells soon as August is almost upon  us.

Good job - you too Kathy.  You should both be proud.  Sherri, that is wonderful that you resisted when it was right in front of you.  Inspirational!!!!

Sherri great news on your diet. Keep up the good work, I know changing the diet is not easy. Three months ago I decided it was time for a check up, first one in 25 years, the doctor said I was in decent shape but I needed to do better. He gave me 6 months to get my borderline sugar and cholesterol numbers down with diet and exercise. Challenge accepted, so far I am down 25 pounds just by watching my portions and cutting way down on carbs. Now if only job stress would go away.

It is a big motivator when your back is up against the wall and finally realize,  either I do something about this or I will not be on the planet much longer. The death part doesn't bother me as much as not being able to do the things I enjoy doing as I get older and closer to the grim reaper.  Things like Rving,  walking in the woods, and enjoying nature.  So it was do or die for me.  Two years ago when I first read the book, I said to myself... NO I cannot do that.. But one month ago a knock at my door made me realize I had no choice.   WE just came home from a funeral,  and I managed to stick to it at the luncheon by choosing salad and fresh veggies and my own dressing which I had taken with me. Sorry to say my spouse ate everything on the buffet,  but I did not.  I am proud of myself.

Good for you Sherri!  I am so impressed by your dedication to this new way of life.  I need to find some of your willpower.  And your quilting energy.  Another pretty project!

Update on diet.  After nearly a month of this way of eating.  I had labs drawn this week for my diabetes doctor.  My A1C is lower than it has ever been since I was diagnosed with diabetes.  I credit it to our new diet.  I have also lost around 10 lbs since leaving the hospital,   my spouse has lost 13. Why do men lose more than women even when they cheat,  which he has in small ways.  Anyway.  We are pretty much sold on this diet.  We both have more energy, and I am looking forward to drastically reduced cholesterol levels and a stronger heart when I see my cardiologist in a couple of months.

After doing all the research on out current eating plan, I have decided that main stream medical practitioners know absolutely "zilch" about the importance of nutrtion.  Since we have changed our eating habits, including more fresh fruits and veggies in our meals,  we have both begun to have more energy that we have in sometime.   It is time consuming and not cheap.  buying all those green items,  is as costly as purchasing meat. and dairy.  Good luck.

Carol, really cute quilt.

Hope all of you are feeling better. I learned I have an extreme vitamin D deficiency which has been causing all my health problems since September. In spite of the supplements I was taking, I'm now also on a prescription dose as well.  Just got back from a week in California and got a lot of natural vitamin D.  Will be in the process of listing my house and relocating either back to Arizona or to California...hopefully before fall.

Feeling better now,  but am making drastic changes in my diet.  Started 2 days ago.  And even though I am hungry all the time on this vegan diet,  I use those hunger pains to remind me, that I am making positive changes to my heart health.  I highly recommend Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease  by Caldwell Esselstyn, MD.  He is based at Cleveland Clinic,  and he called me this am, after I sent an email to him asking a question.  He has inspired both my spouse and me to change to a plant based diet.  It is tough and it is brutal, but it worked for Bill Clinton,  so who am I to disagree...

Sherri, sorry to hear about your heart event. Hope everything is okay now.

Sheila, I just sprained my ankle really bad on Palm Sunday and it is still giving me some trouble. Recovering from multiple broken bones will take time. Hopefully you'll be back to normal soon.

Carol, love your quilt. I haven't done much in so long I have to get upstairs and get going. You are an inspiration.
