    Talking There is hope!

    I wanted to let everyone know that I went for a physical for the first time in YEARS the other day (I know, irresponsible) and when the Physicians Assistant looked at my diet she was VERY impressed. Loved that I ate no grains or refined sugar and praised me for being so fit. I was concerned about stepping on the scale because I had given up the scale 6 months ago, I had ridden 130 miles in the past 2 days, and had just eaten like a horse because of it. She saw that I was 166 at 5'4" and didn't even bat an eye. What a refreshing experience right?

    Glad you have an understanding doctor. I love my diabetes doc. She's been very supportive of my weight loss journey, however she doesn't know about my PB lifestyle. I dread telling her, only to hear "You're eating WHAT?"

    Oooooh, I like that one too. Strong is my goal now that I've lost the weight I needed to lose.

    Re: irresponsible, I guess I'm there too - the last physical I had was to renew my CDL back in 1987 and in CA those are (at least were) about as cursory as it gets: no white cane, got a pulse = pass!

    It's soooooo refreshing. After having to fight with my doctor for years I have a new one after moving. At my first appointment I told him how I ate, without actually calling is primal or paleo, and he commended me on it.

    I can't wait to tell my vegan doctor that I'm 98% carnivorous.
