Thread: Getting back in the mix

  1. #1

    Getting back in the mix

    I have an appointment with Dr. Scott Miller, one of Atlantaís best prostate cancer specialists and a pioneer in some form of robotics surgery, on 5/14. Iím really...excited isnít the word...ready, relieved whatever to meet him and replace my current doctor who I lost all faith in. Iím a bit concerned that my PSA shot up from 4.5 to 7.21 in six months and am hoping thatís lingering biopsy rise or prostatitis.

    Iím down 12 or so pounds in about three weeks. Weíre doing pretty well with no dairy, no red meat, no sugar, no bread. About 75 lbs to go for optimum BMI and totally doable since all I eat and drink is air and air and hummus 😀. Iím also exercising a lot.

    i hope during my appointment with Dr. Miller we can establish a strong AS program and stick to it.

    Great to hear Ice ... ! I had found that when I cut out the gluten stuff like bread, pastas as well as the sugars my weight fell off even without the exercise. You are going to meet your goal.

    I can no longer eat without hearing the voice of Another in my ear going ďyou shouldnít be eating that!Ē. Not knowing Another, I assigned him Gilbert Godfriedís voice 😀. You know I love you Another even if you did ruin food! 😀. You actually challenged me so thanks.

    I have never been a bread person or a sweets person at all. My weakness is at the Mexican restaurant in the chips, salsa and cheese dip. Cheese is my love.

    But I boil it down to this before each meal, is that food worth feeding the cancer. It would have to be one spectacular meal to say yes.
