Hit the pool. I really like swimming, but you need a heated pool this time of year if you are not here in Okinawa

The only pool around is about 15 miles away and it is an OUTDOOR POOL! Plus it is a municipal not conducive to swimming for exercise. Oh and it IS NOT Olympic size.

About 4 months ago my blood sugar (A1C level from 6.8 to 9.1!) decided to jump from a managable 130-140 up to over 500! I now in addition to my oral medication am on a weekly shot. It's back down in the 120's now and HOPEFULLY will stay that way and I can get off all these meds.

I envy you. Swimming is great exercise, but I HATE swimming. I'm one of the people that sinks like a lead ingot.

About the time I turned 40 my metabolism slowed, and my energy levels dropped. You'll also want to start having your PSA and Testosterone tested regularly.

I enjoy Scotch, red wine (actual health benefits when drank with moderation), and the occasional super-rich Stout / Sour / Porter beer. Scotch is lower in calories than many other "hard drinks". I extremely heavily restrict alcohol consumption. Most of the time I'd rather eat my calories.

We eat raw vegetables every day (I have at least one "dry" ... no dressing ... salad a day and typically 2-3 cooked veg with entrees). People drench their salads with "dressing" which harbors enormous fat and calories. I use a little fresh cracked black pepper or organic salsa (when we add avocado and limit veg like broccoli and cauliflower) as a "dressing" .

I've been trying to reduce my meat intake. Strict 4oz (or less) beef portions and 4-6oz chicken or fish. My wife hates fish, but I've been forcing it on her for 11+ years so she's gradually hating it less.

ETA: We also use almost zero "processed" products. 99% of what we eat is organic, and unprocessed. This can make a big difference.

Don't know if I am eating more than I realize or what (haven't been able to get on the treadmill for about 4 days) but I have been stuck at 254-255 for about 5 days now. frown

Lost 2 pounds yesterday. It was an 850 calorie day, because I'm trying to recover from over endulging on the first vacation I took in four years. I gained 5 pounds last week :0

I don't THINK I have over eaten, but on our home scales I weigh 254. Haven't given up yet.

Back to bread and water! wink
