I feel the same way, Charlie. I had a heart attack, my nerves are shot, gaining weight and I can no longer control my diabetes with diet. I truly believe the stress of quitting smoking has adversely effected my health.

Delicia, good for you!! Wow!!

I want a round of applause--I am down 60 pounds since this time last year. My blood sugar was too high, and I have knocked off the grains and sugar. Sugar, not a problem, but I do miss all those grainy things.

Congratulations that is fantastic!

I am restricting grains also and it is tough but, it works.

Any tips you have would be appreciated.

I"ve just recently started eating all the grains I want and I've put on 5 pounds more of me already in two weeks.

Still warm, thick sliced and toasted Homemade bread slathered with butter is my downfall. It's like a dessert to me.

I hear ya!

I live a couple of miles from an old Italian bakery that makes the best bread in the world.

Everyone I know always buys an extra loaf to eat in the car on the way home because the aroma of the warm bread makes you crazy.

I couldn't agree more, Aunt Bea! I had a bakery directly across the street from me when I lived in Berlin. They made little personal loafs of bread that were perfect for one person! I got one every morning at 4am and had it with breakfast. Yum City!

STOP with the warm bread talk, or I will find you and smother you in your sleep!!

We did a benefit yesterday for 2 kids fighting cancer--I baked 4 loaves of honey oat bread, 3 pumpkin and 2 apple pies. And didn't have a bite of any of them!! (We had an auctioneer selling the stuff--the bread brought $8 a loaf and the pies went for about $10 each. Made me feel good!)

Yes, it is hard, and yes, I do miss my bread and pasta and rice--but I would miss my eyes and my kidneys and my feet more, so I try to think about that. I have a disease, and I am a major part of the treatment!

I love veggies, and I am a meat eater, so maybe it is easier for me. I don't restrict most vegetables, and I really don't worry about fat--butter or olive oil on the veggies, nice juicy chicken thighs or pork.

And, hateful as it is, some exercise every day. I have a recumbent bike, but I am more likely to spend my exercise time DOING something--working in the garden, vacuuming under the furniture, raking leaves. Seems more productive, and as long as I am up and around, it counts.
