Five months before that except for a few days binging in between and around Thanksgiving.
Low low carbs for many years now except for the occasional binges that totally destroy and devastate me every time.
Plus the weight gains and then having to do it all over again.
Again and again.
Something over eight years now on this diet.
About every six months I end up binging on sugars and hybrid carbohydrates off and on for a few weeks or days before I grab ahold and get back on my diet again.
It seems that about every six months this happens or I let this happen.
There are some things in life we must always remain vigilant on.
Addictions are one of them.
Sugar and hybrid carbohydrate addiction possibly the worst of them all.
It's like a thousand addictions.
All rolled into one.
Caffeine and alcohol addictions are similar.
Nicotine about the same.
Food the worst.
I was all the way down to 248# once.
I'm 278# right now.
Headed for 178#.
Every pound I lose feels great.
I have been zero salt or seasonings for a couple of months at that time.
Nothing new for me, just saying I'm still in here and fighting the fight.
It's not that much of a fight for me when I don't falter and start feeling sorry for myself.
I lost my dad yesterday.
Monday night actually.
He died sometime during his sleep.
Peacefully at home in his bed.
He was 89 years old.
Still driving his truck till the day he died and living at home.
His health had been failing somewhat for these last few months.
Pneumonia and chest pains and shortness of breath these last weeks.
He had been to the hospital and clinic seeking help.
They gave him some pills and a breathing apparatus this last time and sent him home.
Sometimes the best therapy rather than being bedridden in the hospital.
I don't begrudge them.
They took good care of him.
He had a new pacemaker put in a few weeks ago.
His time got here.
We wish we could have had him forever.
Dad was a really great guy.
Just as down to earth and normal as they come.
Not a mean bone in his body.
A wonderful man.
I loved him dearly and will miss him a lot.
Life goes on.
I'm glad he died peacefully in his bed at home.
His dog at his side.
Just us kids now.
I have two half brothers and myself.
Also Raymond, dad's oldest son by an earlier short lived marriage.
He's 67 I'm 69.
Ron is 60 and Jeff 58.
He's having a military funeral and burial at the military graveyard south of Seattle.
He joins mother.
We lost her six years ago.
Seven now I guess.
I'm not going to the funeral.
My brothers and I don't see eye to eye and we don't need that kind of conflict at dad's funeral.
I'm glad I got to spend some serious time with him just last winter and again this summer.
Pure love, that's dad.
A healthy normal love.
Kind of bashful and not real vocal with that love but with his kindness and responsiveness and concern.
He cared a lot.
Very much his dog Sadie.
Dad's sister Betty will be taking care of her.
She is going to miss dad a lot.
Both Sadie and Betty.
Best to you, have a great day.
I go to court this morning in less than an hour.
Wish me luck.
Becker County Planning and Zoning and the County Prosecutor are trying to bully and push me around inappropriately by bringing a false case against me regarding my property that I recently purchased.
Acting in behalf of some rich business people that are trying to destroy me.
If you can imagine that.
And then saying it's me.
Lying and destroying evidence and committing forgery in order to convict me of something I haven't done.
Fabricating and falsifying evidence is what they are doing.
That and destroying and withholding evidence.
Then lying about it and committing perjury to cover it up.
About to get the judge to favor them and their lies and cheating, if they can get away with it.
Me the bad guy.
The only one saying the truth.
The actual truth.
We'll see how it goes.
I am willing to go to jail.
I hate bullies.
Our government usually has safeguards in place but that doesn't expect lies and coverups and distortions by our government employees.
Falsifying and destroying legal documents and then lying under oath about it.
Conspiring to deny me my civil rights and then saying it was me that brought it on.
Reinterpreting the actual truth in the matter in order to beat up on me and make themselves right.
They have ganged up on me.
Bullies looking for somebody to push around.
Big headed egotistical lying people presenting themselves as nice and good and honest and honorable.
A court date has been set for May 7, 2015
