When I started Sparking I said "Already lost 42lbs..take 10lbs at a time. Pre-diabetic and don't plan on getting diabetes. Appreciate food choice suggestions and particular products by name brand."

Since then I lost a total of 96 lbs and I am now in the normal blood sugar ranges and no longer considered pre-diabetic, however I still stay with the low carb, low glycemic foods and I have maintained my weight also without much fuss.

About 6 months ago my cholesterol was 240 and within 6 months I brought it down 51 points naturally. It is now 189. I had to since I get severe cramps from Cholesterol meds.

I am glad to help anyone who asks for my help!

Its now 2014, I lost another 5lbs last year and I maintain by logging my foods daily, my glucose levels are fine and I log to watch my cholesterol levels daily. It is all still working well. Feeling Great.

    Barr is an Attonrey who choses Trump over the law. No one wants their butcher to have a thumb on the scale as he cuts the meat. Barr's brazenly illegal cover-ups are efforts on behalf of Donnie boy.

    It’s disturbing that he has hopped aboard the ever-growing bandwagon of Mr. Trump’s appointees and hires who believe the law does not apply to them. Clearly the AG is the number one lawyer for the United States, would rather be a personal lawyer for the President as an individual. Mr. Barr has made it clear that he considers his primary (and likely only) client to be Trump. Barr will continue as Trump’s fixer. If Trump loses, Barr will crawl back under the rock from whence he came.

    Clearly Barr has violated his oath of office but far worse than that, Barr is bordering on obstruction of justice himself. What should happen to a man who saw his duty as being to one man when he should have seen it as being to the American people? He should be dismissed and disqualified from holding public office and disbarred.

    McConnell's new co-vid bill ..... well lit excludes increases in food assistance, rental assistance, student loan help, pretty much anything that helps. It does include a cut to the weekly unemployment insurance (UI) boost from $600 to $200. The only new money directed to states is for schools, a large portion of it restricted to go only to schools that physically reopen. It also has McConnell’s obsession, five-years of liability protection for businesses, healthcare providers, and others who might expose people to coronavirus infection. The stuff, beyond military toys to make Trump happy, include an increase in business tax deductions for meals and entertainment. Presumably at Trump properties. What an a-hole...if I could just deduct the full cost of a meal they think it would be worth going to a restaurant and exposing myself to a potentially fatal virus.

    Cruz said.....“The answer to these challenges will not simply be shoveling cash out of Washington; the answer to these challenges will be getting people back to work.” As you remember it was Cruz who disparaged Waters/Waitress and bus boys.

    Democrats want the HEROES Act, which includes much higher unemployment benefits’ and hundreds of billions in state and local aid; hazard pay for essential workers; billions for the Postal Service; a 15% boost to food stamps; and $100 billion for renters as well as a moratorium on all evictions for the remainder of this year.

    Barr's testimony before Congress.....Barr insisted lawmakers should condemn the protester violence in Portland while making no mention of the extensive abuses by law enforcement in response to the protests. He brazenly lies and says the president plays an appropriate role in Justice Department matters. He continues to play dumb on many of the questions posed to him. Also did you notice how the Republican tried to waste time asking stupid question or bringing up old news.

    Trump is now dooming Americans to misery and torment.

    If you look at him on tv, he moves and looks like a mad man and his words are spiked with contempt for everyone. I’ve actually been paying attention all these years.

    He is the prince of everything tacky, crass, perverse and repulsive. A testament to the evils of inherited wealth.
    Trump is a man who lacks even one positive human characteristic and seems to embody every negative one.

    Trump supporters have been brainwashed, but thank God that the majority of us have seen him as an evil who is destroying our county.

    Creating an environment where obvious fictions are accepted and facts are called “fake” is a big part of how cults have always operated. Trump wants the gullible and vulnerable people to believe things that mystify the rest of us. They have been conditioned with lies and fear to worship him without questioning him.

    Many believe that their beloved leader is a super-human and who is an enlightened genius who is incapable of imperfection. We’ve all seen this over and over… a beloved leader who has convinced his followers that he’s somehow above the laws and rules or morals. They’re unable to reason or use logic.

    People don’t even care that Trump is lying....the entire Trump family relish that enough people are buying their lies to make them richer! They’re just like those phony TV evangelists who shamelessly take paychecks from poor people to buy their mansions.

    Any presentation of factual information to a Trump supporter will instantly trigger a massive reflexive recoil, as though you’ve just tossed an angry rattlesnake in his or her lap.

    Trump spews meaningless campaign rhetoric intended to sucker voters into thinking Trump really cared about their tiny little lives.

    There seems to be absolutely nothing that will change Trump’s supporters' minds or would cause them to give up on this treasonous jerk.

    The country and the world are in the process of another historical upheaval and these people are in denial and not equipped to understand it. Of course, living the lie and conning themselves with the help of Trump, the greatest conman of them all, is so much easier than looking in the mirror or addressing the real cause of all Americas problems. Trump is the problem.

    Trump’s core believers believe everything he says and dismiss everything else as fake news. Trump supporters don’t deal in facts or reality.

    He attacks on the rule of law. and the very existence of our government. His followers either don’t get it, or are too brainwashed to open their eyes.

    The point is, Trump is guilty of winning. He’s guilty of winning in 2016. He’s guilty of surviving a coup attempt.

    Trumpanzees aren’t going to get any more intelligent. I don't think anything could change many of their minds. If he shot their own children point blank in front of them, they would still make some lame-ass excuses for him. They would accuse their own eyes of being “fake eyes.” Their souls are sold along with their morals, while pledging loyalty to Trump.
