Scaled today and have lost 9 lbs. since last Monday just by cutting carbs almost out. Use cauliflower rice instead of rice, meat, and veggies. Salad for lunch and getting semi-active again.
Really pushing for a couple more pounds going off before my 3rd surgery of the year next Wednesday. Hoping for a better time this time. Last time required a 2nd surgery on day three and 3 crash cart events for bleeding out. Still thinking about filing suit against the surgeon (who is no longer with the hospital and it seems no one is missing him) but will wait till after this event. 30+ inches of incision and 150 (counted by the visiting nurse) plus 13 days in hospital for a same day surgery.
Losing the 60 lbs has gotten me off diabetic meds for type 2. Has reduced or cut a couple more meds. All that by simply seriously cutting back on carbohydrates. We are going to cheat a bit and buy some ice cream. We have Blueberries we are picking, wild blackberries are getting ripe to pick and we have some of the sweetest apples ripe for picking on our trees. Those berries beg a little bowl of ice cream.
Life is a collection of stories we old people tell and hope a few will listen and carry them into the future.
There is a story to everything we have, everyone we have met and everything we have done or we will do or dream about doing.
We sometimes ride to forget, but hopefully we never forget to ride.
