I had a really great day. I slept in a little and rested some more in bed. I got up at around 7 am and quickly wrote my post that I did not do last night. I explained why in my previous post. How about my doctors visit yesterday? It went better than I thought it would. This doctor was real laid back. He was a little older so at first glance I thought that I was going to have a hard time with him when I revealed my zero carb diet to him. To my surprise he was OK with it and even told me a little story some gentleman he know that went vlc and lost a lot of weight. We then discussed exercise. He had another story about that too. He told me of a person he knew that work on an oil rig in the Texas gulf and would gain weight while he was there. Although he would walk thousands of steps throughout the month. When the doctor asked why he thought he gained weight, the patient told him that they had a world class kitchen and most there ate for entertainment because they were bored. A couple of surprising stories. So I let him on that I was doing zero carb and he was OK with it. He did not tell me that it was dangerous or anything like that in the least. I also told him that I would like to follow up with him in about 3 months to see my progress and to do the lab screening again. He was good with that too. Now for today. As mentioned earlier I had a friend coming over today. I have known him for awhile. I have mentioned going out to eat with him in prior posts. He is real cool and just goes with the flow. I ended up grilling rib eye steaks, chappell hill garlic sausage and tons of burgers. I used coal instead of propane and the food came out beyond good. We had a great time talking and eating. I even brought out my rifles and we talk about them too. He is a fire arms enthusiasts and has done a little gunsmithing. He never complained once that there was no sides dishes. We just talked and laughed like we always do. Now I have a ton of burgers and quite a few sausage links to enjoy. I will freeze some meal packs of both. There is way too much to keep in the refrigerator. I don't like it when food starts to get that funny taste after a few days. So tomorrow I have a small job to do. Actually I should not consider it work at all. Now I am all rested up and stocked up on real food. I am very happy right now. No cravings and no movement on the scale. Thanks to all for your support. A special shout out to Denis for your comment.
