Re: Science and Emotions
Of course, I don't believe that God was a creation of humans. I can never imagine letting go that much....because if God did not exist, reality itself is a cruel, uncaring, and harsh mistress...and gives no hope to anyone.

Reality just is. Perhaps it is your perception that needs adjusting, instead of patching up an uncomfortable view of reality with a god mythology.

Update and Plans for 2019 and Beyond...
Perhaps it is your perception that needs adjusting, instead of patching up an uncomfortable view of reality with a god mythology.
Perhaps. When it comes to my health, I dont think about God much...I realize that I am the one responsible for my health and progress. So I weighed in at 217 this week. More exactly, my weight is on a spectrum between 217 and 211...I always use the highest number for my chart. I went and had a Dexa Scan.

My Numbers look better than they would have looked a month ago when I weighed 232, but they are on the high end.
Total Mass: 213.0 lbs.....Lean Mass: 146.5 lbs.......Tissue %Lean: 68.8%.....Fat Mass: 58.5 lbs.....Tissue %Fat 28.5%

So I am continuing this diet until I reach 18% body fat at the most...then continuing to eat basic low carb for the rest of my life, adding only healthy low glycemic vegetables back in to the mix in increasing amounts as I reach my goals...the real number that has to improve is my insulin resistance.

Re: Update and Plans for 2019 and Beyond...
More developments, and my current belief and opinion:

For many years, I was on insulin. This was by choice, as I reasoned back then that without supplemental insulin, my pancreas would eventually burn out. My doctor at that time simply went along with my theory---obviously, neither one of us understood the science behind all of it. Now here it is nearly 2019. I was informed last week that I will need a Vitrectomy. My eyes have been affected by proliferative retinopathy, and the eye surgeon told me that without this I will eventually become blind in one eye. I have always been stubborn in regards to my deciding how to manage my health, and it may yet be the death of me...but that is my character. I will say, however, that I study up on this stuff more than I used to do. Stay tuned as I enter 2019 and attempt to juggle my faith, spiritual belief, and passion for life while accepting fully the science behind the reality of my health.
