Finally, I got off my butt

Well, not exactly, but I did do some exercise stuff today. Not a lot, but it;'s a start.

Not a lot going on

Rainy weekend just played havoc with my arthritis, so no exercise for this old man. Just sat on my butt and watched TV.
I have increased my fiber intake which may help control sugar a little. Yeah, I know, no evidence exists, but since our body is a cohesive unit, better health comes from when the parts just work better. Removing toxins through fiber has to be, in the words of Martha Stewart, a good thing.

I need to bring my sugar down

It's been a little high lately, and I need to tighten up my food. I control my sugar through my actions (diet and exercise) but because I've been feeling like crap, I haven't been exercising, and am paying the price. Today, I'll start hitting it a little better.

Lasik is not 100% safe

For quite a few years, Lasik eye surgery has been touted as a quick, efficient way to get rid of glasses. But according to a recent AP article, not all surgeries are successful. Some have made the eyes worse, bringing about new problems such as worse vision, severe dry eye, glare, and inability to drive at night. Add to this severe eye pain, and suddenly what has been touted as a safe, nearly painless procedure is not really one.
On a personallevel, my neighbor had the operation years ago. It was less than successful as her vision continued to worsen. It may or may not have been related to the operation, but she was assured ahead of time that the operation had no risk and would help her.
In the long run, it did nothing.

If losing weight helps

and we all know it can for many diabetics, especially type 2, then this man can work wonders.


He was featured on TLC with a show and he has helped me so far, at least with my mindset. I'm so positive the weight loss will follow, that I highly recommend anyone with a weight loss goal check him out.

Still struggling

My recovery isn't going so well. I'm using braces to walk, and they are helping, but the wounds are still there.
