    Hi Denial. Glad you are doing better and trying hard. Sometimes things get frustrating for all of us. Usually my numbers are pretty good too. I will be getting a checkup later this month. Wish I could lose the extra weight. I sure don't want it or need it. I used to be slender until about 6 years ago. Some of the meds I had to take made me gain a lot of excess weight, GRRRRR. I am no longer on those meds, and refuse to take them. So far, I am not shrinking, but my mom has shrunk a few inches. Take care and see you around here sometimes.

    hooty-I know what you mean about weight, it's much harder we get older I know, I'm 37 when I was in my 20s I can walk less than a mile and I lost the weight, now these days at my age I'm gaining it's harder to lose. I talked to mom yesterday she told me you can lose weight if you want to, she says that because she's very thin person, but when someone is overweight it's much harder. I'm 145 and can't lose it. The funny thing hoodie early stage of my diabetes in 2008 I could lose a very fast figure that out now I can even lose any, even how much exercise how much I do but write my mountain bike. And I know when I get older it's really much harder. I can't eat healthier but I try at times. Good luck on the checkup for you results thanks for being my friend a lot of people give up on me on the board, but at least some trying in a way
