    Would that be Long John Baldry? I had a copy of 'Let the heartaches begin' :)

    This morning back to a more normal 5.5. Doggies walked and I am now back on my computer to work on my coursework. It is quite hard to do - but not impossible. I think I had stressed so much over it that I had got it into my head that it was so so difficult and much too hard for me to do.

    The very same. Nice guy - Canadian, very tall from what I can remember. Hung around with Reg Dwight who used Johns name when he changed it to Elton John.

    A morning of bickering and dickering with my meter after a night of waking up hungry from a series of weird dreams. First stab got me 6.7; when I refused it I was offered a 6.3. I took it, just happy to be awake and to realize that no one had taken one of my favorite novels and added a series of live-action illustrations that, like some movie adaptations, completely changed the story!

    Awww ... thank you! You have just reminded me of one of the first "bonding" moments I had with my new step-niece and -nephew nearly 40 years ago -- sitting around the kitchen table playing some family card game and singing that song. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    But, ya know? I've never analyzed the lyrics before! [​IMG]

    That’s brilliant @gennepher it really seems to be doing the trick. Do you get hungry in the evenings?

    No I don't feel hungry in the evenings @DJC3

    But I think what also helps me, is that I live on my own, I don't have anyone to cook for, or to cook for me, and maybe the main thing is that I don't have a television (not had one for nearly 20 years now), and so I do not see adverts for food and consequently don't get triggers in the evening for something I might fancy. So, I think in that respect it might be easier for me than others who have partners and family living with them.

    Interesting observation about the food triggers and TV I find Im quite susceptible to suggestion. I watched a prog this evening where the main characters were often filmed in bars and restaurants with glasses of white wine and I found myself really wanting one too. We didn’t have any in the house, so I couldn’t, but I think you’re right about the subconscious effect of watching people eating and drinking, even without advertisements.

    Didn’t get round to posting today, or maybe even yesterday. Both were in the high fives.
    Daughter and partner arrived, so did Mr C with a lorry load of furniture so we’ve had a couple of days of struggling in and up our narrow stairs with a bed, chests of drawers and heavy boxes. Still a lot of boxes and stuff around but we’re gradually finding a place for everything. The house looks even smaller now.
    Good to see you back @ianpspurs

    Yes, that is very true I think @DJC3
    There are a lot of things that have the potential to trigger a want.

    I only have to see a photo of a baked potato and I really want it. But I have no oven nor potatoes in the house. Also I know now how alarmingly a potato will raise my sugars. Also eating a potato makes me want more sugar stuff. It is not worth it. There are a couple of other things too that can trigger a “really want”. But I don’t do it. One day that “want” won’t be triggered... I hope.

    I know what works to make my sugar levels better, and I know not to give in.
