@mhrackin

thanks for the encouragement. I don;t need to lost that much. Lost 7 lbs. in the first month. The goal is just to lose 2 lbs a month over a year. that shouldbe enough to lower the gluose levels. I'll get a blood test around September.

At first, I was getting hungry a lot but just kept working through it. Hunger is subsided now.

Ah, an Engineer's lunch: one random container each day from the freezer, luck-of-the-draw.

Luckily, I'm a good cook. And a gardener: Brussels Sprouts (Brassica oleriaca f. gemmifera) are easy to grow, and the plants are oh-so-impressive looking if you should lavish on them more care than a commercial producer could afford.

They have a wonderful flavour distinct from the other members of their species (cabbage, cauliflower, kale, cauliflower, collards, kohlrabi,...), and the leaves and flower-stalks carry the same goodness.

MB, been there, done that! I was diagnosed as diabetic about 15 years ago.  Was on oral meds and strict diet/exercise, now am ~80lb lighter and off meds.  You can do it too!  PS: my wife is the family champ, though: she lost 115lb!

Not the gluten, just need to out down on sugar and lose a little weight. It's going well so far, but it's a lifestyle change.

@mhrackin: Hopefully he will respond soon and I will update.

I await aquiver in dread anticipation ... I'm wondering if he even remembers ... maybe he always knew and was taking pity on you (maybe he just thought you were really bad at cooking veal :-)

As my brother lives in northern California I have e-mailed him (he's fully retired now and is usually off hiking days).  Hopefully he will respond soon and I will update.

@Max, you were OK until the bacon part. As for me, I'm pretty much off bagels. Not completely, but almost. I save my ration for special occasions.

Time for some high-fiber flatbread I think.

@mhrackin: When he said, "What are we having for dinner?" I responded "Veal Parmesan."   He devoured that dinner and enjoyed it immensely! About 55 years have passed since then, and I suspect he still doesn't realize the truth.

But now I cannot rest without knowing if he knows or not ... do not delay ... call your brother immediately and then report back to the rest of us!

@MeasurementBlues: In that case, you need a bagel.

Yes, yes, yes! With a lashing of cream cheese, a sprinkling of chives, and a rasher or three of crispy bacon ... I like where you are going with this!
