First, thank you all for the kind comments about Vince’s weight loss. Before he went to bed last night, I read the comments to him that y’all had posted and I know it made him feel good. He said he’s feeling so much better. He’s really sticking with it. Monday when I made the cake, he said no . . not eating any. I hadn’t expected him to eat it and I only made it because I had the new cake pan and I gave most of what I made away just to avoid the temptation. Yesterday evening, he said he wanted a little sliver so I cut a little sliver for him. He ate about half of the sliver and gave me the rest. It’s ok sometimes to have a taste of something you really want (food . . I’m talking about food!) but he was back to being strong today.
He’s also checking his blood glucose number every morning and that has come down to a much better level than where it was when he started. He is doing great and I’m so happy to see it. Yes, I need to jump on that bandwagon with him. I keep thinking . . dang, if I would have started when he did, which seems like only a few weeks ago, I’d have reached my goal by now but I don’t think women lose as fast as men do and . . I didn’t start when he did. I have cut back and I have lost a few pounds but mostly because I’m cooking low carb foods for our meals. I’ve hardly made bread and I won’t make another cake for a very long time.
Again, thank you all for the encouraging words and for helping make Vince feel good about the incredible weight loss and overall improvement in his health.
