    Did he/she not reach over the counter and punch you on the nose ?

    I am a member of another forum where there is a thread wailing about the cost to the NHS of all those Type 2's who have "deliberately" got Fat and become diabetic. The general consensus seems to be Fat = Diabetic. I've tried to set them straight but I've been insulted and shouted down.

    The Meeeja have a lot to answer for

    Occasionally I will buy a burger from Mc'ds and just eat it without the bun but my daughter said I should ask them to make it in the box without the bun. I will try it one day and see how I get on.

    I suppose I'm lucky in that I was never *that* fat to begin with so I haven't had to face any of that.

    The smoky smell of 97% meaty sausages and the crisp tang of coleslaw fills the air at the Spikey Island Parochial House.

    Yeah, I'm back in the game baby! :)

    I went to sleep with my BS at 7.7 and presumably still rising. This morning I wrote down everything I could think of that led me to jump off the wagon, and now I'm moving on. Nuff said.

    @DeejayR . Hello, I just wanted to empathise with you. I haven't been posting because I have fallen off the wagon. Each day I have resolved that I will get back on track but have failed by supper time. I'm hoping that on Tuesday ( my partner is away from then for 3 weeks) I will get back to my lchf without blips. Good luck . I'm sure you will get back on track. :)

    Lol to stop myself raiding the cakes in the cupboard I have just made a low carb chocolate muffin and ate it with a sauce made from Greek yoghurt, vanilla essence, cocoa and a little sweetener. :)

    B: 500ml water
    a huge jug of bulletproof hot chocolate made with water, butter, coconut oil and some fresh coconut milk/cream cinnamon and a drop of almond extract. A thing of beauty. :D

    Lunch: 500ml water
    2egg omelette with 2 slices of parma ham ripped up, grated cheddar and some chopped fresh parsley. With a huge salad of leaves, avocado and antipasti.

    S: handful of nuts as driving a 114 miles out of London on a busy Fri afternoon listening to the Chili peppers.

    D:a massive veg curry friend made me and I contributed the cauliflower rice fried in coconut/cardamon/chilli flakes with fried almond flakes and salt. Tasted delish.
    Between the two of us 2bottles of Rioja was consummed. :p
