My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    Summer time: taking my little dog Sophie for strolls in her doggie buggy. I call it her wheelie cart. Also going down to the city docks watching the cruise boats coming in and heading out.
  • My favorite books
    Actually, Genesis thru Revelation. Mary Higgins Clark mysteries are excellent. They're about the only books I know will be free of bad language or immorality. Now Clive Cussler as well
  • My favorite movies
    Not really into movies as such. About the only tv I watch is westerns from 50's-70's. Not much tv is worth watching mid 80's and onward.

  1. Well, had my 3 month medical checkup today. Doc was ecstatic about the weight loss.


    But for some reason my A1c just will not drop. 🥺 Well it dropped a point. Doesn’t make sense to me. So I’m still in the pre-diabetic stage.


    Now we’re just going to see about maintaining the weight downward trend and also check back in 3 months with A1c bloodwork. 


    She wanted to go 6 months but I want to keep a close watch on that A1c.

      Delighted to hear you have lost weight. You must have managed it through diet and exercise. One medical specialist in a talk, said that walking is not good enough to keep sugar level down. I try to walk up an incline at a hill nearby. I find it excellent for boosting my energy level. Otherwise I would be lethargic. My bp is ok, my weight is normal but that A1C is bad so is the cholesterol. Will do more exercise and see if it will drop. I have to stop eating chocolates and breakfast cereals. Stick to oatmeal and brown rice. I have eating vegetarian but I think I should incorporate lean chicken and steamed/baked fish to stave off the hunger pangs.

      You're giving me an incentive to climb more hills. Hiking perhaps. 1 step at a time. Don't want to be too ambitious and fall back to my bad old ways.

      Hoping to hear good news from you soon.

      Hi MikkiSoo. Watch your carbs. If a person is looking to lose weight sugar has to go and carbs limited.


      I was drinking 1-2 sodas a day for many years. I dropped it totally back in first part of November last year. 


      Also was a big time processed food eater. Not anymore. 


      But each person is different and has their own way of doing things. 😁

      Thanks for the tips. My son has been a diabetic since the age of 32. His paternal grandfather and granduncle were morbidly obese like jabba the hutt. At least 1/4 a hutt. 

      Now he is condemned to a future of endless dialysis, kidney failure limb amputation etc. He has not lost any weight, his waist is 40 " for a Chinese whose height is less than 5 ft. 6 ". 

      I have to find a way to save myself from descending into full scale diabetes and he, into a lifetime battling heart disease. He also has high blood. He does go swimming at the pool in his condo.

      His diabetes resulted partly from a diet of MacD and soda. 

      Hope you'll be able to resist the temptations of all the tantalizing empty refined carbohydrates all around us. Keep a journal. 

      Be strong.

      Love and hugs.
