Subject: BEING PHILOSOPHICAL

So I was thinking today. That is always a very dangerous thing! Four years ago I was diagnosed as a Type II diabetic. I went to work and lost 40 pounds and totally changed the way I eat. All I do is count carbs. I exercise every day and watch every thing that enters my mouth. Today I was at the doctor and he told me that I am no longer a diabetic. My blood sugars have been so low for four years that they are probably lower than his. I am now considered someone who is only mildly glucose intolerant. I don't intend to change one thing about how I eat. I love being thin and fit. I love buying clothes and having them actually fit. Believe me, though, this has been quite a journey. I had "friends" who told me I looked too thin and like I was dying of cancer(I weigh 127 pounds and am 5'3". I walk every day and play tennis at least three times a week. Even my triathalon son told me I have great muscular calves! I told my doctor that they day he tells me I am dying, I am walking down the street to the Downtowner Restaurant and ordering the Belgian waffle with a pound of butter and a whole container of syrup. He got a big charge out of that. What would be your most favorite meal if there was absolutely no consideration of nutrition or health and wellness? I would also love a piece of apple pie with crumbly crust and a big bowl of chocolate pudding. Also a whole box of carmel rolls and donuts. Even though I could probably have something sweet now and then I have no desire to sabotage where I have gotten. By the way I would also love a custard turtle sundae. Lots of fudge, carmel and nuts!

[> Ihave favorite food memories but havent really thought much about a last meal scenario! If i could bring back a food substance that had disappeared, then it would be some of the sweets of my childhood, and i would sit in a willow tree and slowly munch my way through them -- Poule, 07/26/11 5:47am

[> [> It's funny since you mention it-my kids have all accused me of actually shrinking! I know this is not the case, so I got a signed note from my gynecologist that I am exactly the same height as I was back in the days when I was pregnant with all of them. That brings up another point. My daughter was going to an 80's party, and asked me what I wore back then. I told her either maternity clothes or jeans and t-shirts with spit up on the back. -- Liz, 07/26/11 10:10pm
