That is absolutely true, but so many people choose to eat themselves to death.being diabetic you either change or die quicker
There are a few at our sportsman club who are really great guys (and one or two of the women also) who keep getting sicker and sicker, carry oxygen tanks, take increased amounts of insulin, and still stuff their faces with the most fattening things possible. You can sure loose your taste for fried chicken, corn, mashed potatoes and mac and cheese if you have to sit at a table and watch those guys stuff their faces as fast as they can shove it in!
One woman who used to play bridge in the group I did refused to change her eating habits, even as she lost more toes every couple years and could barely walk. She died after several years of pain and misery - but she kept eating the same way.
Enough for that. @subhuman -- I'm super proud of you. What would the evil pawn shop do if you didn't take care of yourself and stay around for a long time? Not to mention that we here would miss you like crazy also. Well, at least some of us.
