    That's great Bob,

    You should have celebrated by playing on the PCs in Currys on the way home.

    Keep it up.

    I always go for the laptop on the highest shelf :wink: ,You now the kind £1000 +
    normally the alarm goes off :oops:
    The staff just have not a clue How do deal with it/me 8) Ask if i can see it and told sorry its on a chain .I say thats not very nice ,So what do if i want one ,We would get a new one from the storecould i open that one and see it
    NOBut i don't know what it looks like ,the feel of mouse pad ect .I still cant get it down and off the chain So would you pay £1000 for something you cant even see NO! Nor will I ,,See Yerr

    Yet you can go into the apple store 90% goods are at wheelchair hight large tables play as long as you like ,if you want to see something high up ,will get it down for you


    Plus something in my wheelchair sets off the alarms on the way out i think its my electric motors
    You can see the look of horror on the security guards face what his thinking . Do i stop him or not , :mrgreen:

    Played havoc in a large stationary store :mrgreen: No room to move around shop being boxed in
    every way i went ,we needed some stationary so not wasting any time and spent £40 in there
    I asked if a stand on wheels could be moved to allow access
    So i could enter a pathway I Was told NO , Red Rag time :evil:
    Told him the gap should be min 700 wide for wheelchair assess ,he said the gap is for push wheelchairs and not electric ones , I told him its for any wheelchair/ and my electric wheelchair only 600 wide less than the standard push wheelchair ? ,,
    Tell me what you want i will fetch it for you
    I don't know what i want i would like to browse like your other customers if i cant do that
    its called discrimination, Do you have you head office tel number ..NO OK i will get it of the till receipt then He moved the display on wheels so i could pass ?
    found a bargain 40 A4 envelops


    I'm like the wheelchair Police now :mrgreen:
    if i see something going on will Flag it up to staff ,if i know nothing will be done or i am abused
    told to leave shop .I email HQ with a copy of video clip from event

    Well done You!!! :p
    you must be soooooo pleased with your results and especially
    the weight loss as you thought that you may have lost nothing.
    I am sure that you feel it's made it easier to carry on.


    Me I lost
    9lbs week1
    4lbs week2
    3lbs week3
    I am sure yours will be at least the same in your coming weeks.
    My starting weight was 17st 1lb so now under 16st brrrrrillllllll. :lol:

    Can't wait till next Monday hahaha. :D

    Was thinking if i could only exercise how much more i would have lost ,? A win is still a win :D
    However my Wife is miffed off ,as shes been doing slimming world for four weeks
    i have overtook her in just a week :mrgreen:

    Diet also seems to have had a good effect on my BP something my GP was worried about

    Tuesday 23rd Aug
    Into week 2 with a Win behind me

    Breakfast chocolate milk shake My normal large coffee
    FBG 5.2 :D
    BG2hr+ 6.8

    _________________________________________________________
    Lunch went for caramel shake you are right Patch taste has changed not bad now
    BG 5.7
    BG2hr+6.2

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Evening Meal
    Coffee shake
    BG 5.3
    BG2hr+6.1
    Happy with that :mrgreen:
    _______________________________________________________

    Good thing now is any side effects I am having
    I now know 100% are from pain killing drugs not down to any diabetic meds

    Still finding it very easy I do not feel hunger at all ,, only like a munch while watching TV around
    9<>10 as i normally have some cheese and apple then ,now i save the veg for then

    All the drinks taste better chilled So we put a large bottle tap water in the fridge to make the drinks with the coffee one is better with some ice in as well
    Still i have not come back the the caramel one yet ,think i may give it a shot tonight :roll:
    Caramel yes patch you are Right tastes better on the 2nd week

    Wow that was good

    Edits for BG and bad language :wink:

    Hi Bob

    I might give the chilled shakes a try good idea with water in the fridge.
    I have got the munchies in the evening so it must be a common problem.

    My hubby is bringing out more supplies tomorrow ............I think this next week
    will be harder with him around and me doing all that cooking!!!!!

    I have been on my own doing it the last 3 weeks so easy........... no shopping... no cooking
    but then I am glad when he's around, he should be encouraging he worries about my diabetes
    probably more than me.

    Anyway onwards and upwards as they say once again well done!!!
    I

    I try to only use the ready made shakes when out as more kcals than made with powder and water
    at home. the ready made are very handy when your out
    My wife works at Sainsburys so picks all my slim-fast stuff up with her discount :D

    If you think two tubs will make 24 meals thats cheap grub for the week @ £5.85 a tub :D

    You're doing a great job, buddy. Those BG numbers are great. Keep it up. I'm still on and off... but down now to 109.8 Kg. My short-term goal is 105Kgs at which point my wife has promised me a small slice of pizza. Hope I'm man enough to resist her temptation.
