Did you read that study? They wrote that pot smokers take in more calories, but are still thinner and have less diabetes. It's part of why this is so intriguing to scientists.

SB, I have said it before and I will keep saying it because it is so true for me and I know others here too. You are an inspiration.

People don't just inspire others through their success. In fact, for me that is almost the opposite of the truth. I admire those who succeed through their challenges and mistakes. You are doing so well but are also not afraid to admit those hurdles. As others have said, you have to let yourself "cheat", but then move on.

You are ALL inspirations to me. I have been reading more than writing here the last while and you are all helping me get ready to pick myself and try this all again. Thank you!

Once I became diabetic, I was horrified. What? No sugar? Give up BBQ sauce? Give up all those little things that came with sugar? After a year or two, I got so used to going without all those sugary enhanced foods, that when I did indulge in a favorite like a Mounds Bar or Peppermint Patty, it was so sweet more often than not, I had to spit out that first bite. Now other than sugar in my coffee, I simply cannot tolerate anything sweet. If I have a doughnut, it is a plain cake doughnut and even then only eat half. Last week I made an apple pie for Spike. I took such a thin sliver for a slice, it weighed less than an ounce. Maybe three apple slices? I only ate one slice of apple.

The longer you go between sweets, the more you are going to find them less desirable. You will develop a sensitivity to the sweetness of the sugar. Hang in there. You are going to make it.

I totally agree, Addie. When I was told last fall I had a candida allergy and one of the biggest things I had to delete from my diet (for life) was sugar, I was horrified. I stayed off everything, including all fruit and other natural sugars for 4 months. Now, a piece of chocolate, any cake, even my beloved pure maple syrup are so sweet I have no interest. Happily I can have my fruit back, as long as it is not processed with sugar (jam, etc.).

I guess the only thing that frustrates me is even though I have cut all this out I still am not losing weight. But I know I have to get more active in a way that doesn't affect my chronic pain issues. Baby steps!

I'm so glad that you are getting encouragement and inspiration to get back on track LP. It really is a matter of taking baby steps, but it is worth it. I did some measurements of my body this morning, and it is amazing the inches that are gone! I really hope you can find a way to exercise that works without causing too much pain. Hang in there. I'm here for you.

Thanks, chopper.

The other day I was getting my new cookware and we saw the Nutri-bullet. I have seen it on TV and was skeptical, but did some research and decided it was better than the Ninja or Vitamix.

We decided to purchase it. That was on Saturday and from Sunday on we have been having one of their "Nutriblast" smoothies every morning for breakfast. It contains half leafy greens, half fresh fruit and 1/8 to 1/4 cup "boosters" which can be nuts, seeds, etc.). It has a booklet with recipes and the values of each ingredient. They have a whole (almost) raw menu plan with recipes, but we are right now just sticking to breakfast.

We both mentioned today that we can almost feel the toxins leaving our bodies and are more energetic. I am breathing better with my asthma and my pain levels are much lower. This is the only change we have made!

I think if I keep at this, I will be able to exercise soon.! As you say, baby steps.

Laurie, I just had a look at that link for the Nutri-Bullet. Am I wrong that it is basically a Magic-Bullet with a new kind of blade, an "extractor blade"?

How are you liking the results of using the extractor blade? How does it compare with say, a blender?

I noticed that they sell an "upgrade kit" with the extractor blade.
