Anemia->Can anyone relate?
Posted: 3/20/2019 4:07:56 AM
If you just take a B12 vitamin alone, you are wasting money.


You will need to take your iron of choice and get blood work and see how the form you use works for you.If not working, choose another and repeat test.Take 3 months before testing. ( or eat iron rich foods)

Some of us never have a so called normal reading.

Low iron is better than high. Many health risks.

Total volume of what? How many red blood cells?
Size?
How far apart?

Talk to your Dr about what each means for you.

Valentines day and what it means to us 'life experienced' mature folks
Posted: 2/11/2019 11:43:15 PM
Half priced chocolates on the 15th is all I care about and ever cared about.

I never got into Valentines day as anything but silly at any age.How age has anything to do with celebrating or not celebrating something is not how my mind works.

Swap numbers, then next day get a brush-off
Posted: 1/21/2019 2:50:04 AM
Doubt its another guy that fast.

She was comfortable the way things were with you imo.
When you exchanged numbers it got to close for her comfort level for some reason.

Maybe she is new to this or had a bad experience. Either way move on and exchange numbers sooner to flush out people who aren't ready or may be juggling.

Why is a 22 year old sitting in an old lady chair for a dating profile picture?
You get about 2 seconds of a view then we move on.NEXT..

Get up, look fun and interesting.

DIabetes and dating
Posted: 12/5/2018 3:53:11 AM
I dated 2 insulin diabetic men from online.
They didn't tell me but pulled out a needle from the glove box and shot themselves in the stomach.
I don't recommend doing any medication in front of 1st dates unless you explain what and why.

Help losing weight and waist training?
Posted: 11/3/2018 4:25:31 AM
Consuming calcium should be plant material. You need to read the calcium paradox.
Dairy will make you fat. Dairy and calcium supplements are not going to maintain bone. Exercise with weights will benefit your bones.
Eat loads of veggies, fruit, beans, and eggs.In that order. Eat healthy fats to lose belly fat. Coconut oil, flax oil, avocados and olive oil.
Maintain an alkaline eating program to not lose bone mass and lose weight. I lost about a hundred pounds and have kept it off 16 years.I do not have osteoporosis.
I eat breakfast at 10-11 and my last meal is about 6-7 pm so get that much needed daily fast 5 days a week.
No meat, dairy or sugar of ANY kind 4-5 days a week.
Read labels of ingredients if buying canned food such as beans, tomatoes or salsa. Most have sugar in some form.
Exercise is not the key to weight loss, what you eat is. I didn't exercise other than walks until 80 pounds came off.That took about 11 months.calories are not the issue, what the calories are is. Cardio is not fat burning, aerobics, where you can breathe or still talk/sing, will burn more fat.

Add Ginger, cayenne, and garlic to as many things as you can and coconut oil to rev up metabolism.
Ginger fresh grated is a good tea w stevia to sweeten.

No diet foods or soda.

If I can do it, anyone can. You need the correct information and just stick to it.

Weight loss drugs: Worth it or Not?
Posted: 9/28/2018 4:57:28 AM
NOOOOOO
Just for the drug companies to make $$$
If a drug existed that would take and keep weight off without being dangerous there would be no obese people.

Its simple, but not easy to lose weight by eating a lot of veggies, fruit and beans. It gets easier to keep it off by eating the right foods the rest of your life.

Many many threads on this topic. Addiction to foods are real is one thread title I recall.

Chronic Illness? A deal breaker or not?
Posted: 9/8/2018 4:38:24 AM
Being obese DOES contribute to and can cause many diseases including but not exclusive to cancer, gallbladder, and pancreatic conditions and fatty liver. Pain from arthritis can be in some completely eliminated by losing weight so if they are obese or overweight they need to lose the extra weight.
I wouldn't be attracted to them to start with if obese but have learned over time to care deeply for an obese man.
Not dealing with a huge wheat-beer belly and having them complain about gout, his knees, this and that when diet & other lifestyle issues need addressing.

Many many illnesses and pain go away if you are a healthy weight and exercise.
I had some issues myself and *shazam*.........GONE-cured after a substantial weight loss over 15 years ago. Also got off 6 medications.
High LDL and high blood pressure are very often just genetic and make no difference in many rehardless.

My LDL will always be high yet blood pressure has always run on the low side even when heavy.

So she makes a valid point as do many of you disagreeing with her.

Chronic illness? Yes, could be but it would depend on other factors too. That's not a question that has a definitive answer IMO.

Older gentleman with kids
Posted: 8/31/2018 10:01:46 AM
I had older parents so good for you. My Dad was 50 when I was born, mom 42.

I would date a man with jr high to high school age for sure, maybe younger.
Depends on how He is raising them to act and how much "trouble or help" the bio mom is. Finances is a part of it also. If you can't do your part with dating because kiddies need shoes that would make it hard.

Kids aren't deal breakers for most people male or female unless you have a lot of drama going on with the ex or they are not trained in the art of listening and behaving.

MAKE-UP WARS
Posted: 8/31/2018 9:49:20 AM
Funny how I see women who have face fillers, do botox and have had lifts want to slam other women for being FAKE or false advertising when they use makeup.

We can see your chest, neck and arms people. Old is still old.

If the face looks 10- 20 years younger it looks even more ridiculous imo because you spent 25 grand doing it.
I do very little but am very pale so I'm "painting my eyes on". The rest is sunscreen or touch up my nose.
Its not enough to most people but if Im glamming up Ill do a bit more for a party.

Seriously if someone is going to see me with no eyeliner some day, I dont want them to think I am sick if I skip it because I sure LOOK dead as hell without it.

Kind of like the mens profiles.
No Golddiggers ( yeah, they looking on POF for a yacht owner) HA!!
No cheaters or drama queens.blah blah.
Even though I'm not a large woman myself I am very turned off by fat, balding old guys that state they prefer "petite women".
They don't even know petite means short. It reminds me of No FAT CHICK bumper stickers. Losers.


ANYHOO, stop whining.

Even if I'm dating I keep my profile because I want to. Forums and people I have gotten to know over the years are on here.
2 morons got upset after 2 dates that I didn't take it down.
They turned out to be VERY clingy very soon.No thanks.

You can always say not looking and use your settings to not get mail.
Some of you people need to grow a brain.

whiterose
I have a good friend who is lovely and approaching 65. Between resurfacing skin on her face, upper eyelid surgery, lower lid surgery, lumpy fillers( think golf balls in her face) plus a jaw and forehead lift she looks about 45.It looks like a neck job too but Im not positive that was done.

Then you see her chest and arms. OMG she looks 75 if a day from sun exposure and loose skin.
It doesnt match and looks ridiculous. I would never tell her but other friends often ask about work and my opinion.

My response is a bit of botox, maybe skin resurfacing or if you have something that doesn't fit the rest of your face then do something if it bothers you BUT

******Its stupid and looks ridiculous to put a 25k roof on a 1954 trailer.*****

Protein is WAY overrated as to how much most of us need, especially women.
Cancer, weight gain, acidosis (esp from animal flesh).

I eat a ton of good carbs found in fruit and beans. I don't find it to be an issue at all.

Being happy with the way you look with fillers, botox, mini lifts, hair color, tons of makeup clumping is not being "happy with your looks".


Anyhoo, its all about the body and the attitude. Most women focus way too much on the face and hair in general, spend a fortune ( as in a Toyota) on the face and forget we can see the chest, belly, and arms. Dead giveaway.

First, MG is an amazing supplement when taken in the right doses for you.

Calming for the nerves, tension, and migraine headaches, lowers blood pressure, can ease constipation( citrate form), leg cramps & shoulder tightness. Love it.
Unless you take MG, you are probably deficient in it.

As far as your CRP levels, you could just be eating less inflammatory foods before your blood test.
My CRP runs about.5 unless I eat crap a few days before a blood test.

Except for not having good pics I actually like it. Short and to the point with enough to tell what you are interested in.
I would date you if age appropriate by the words in the profile.
Tip
Maybe lose the "Im a big guy" We can see that. Agree with hal ski up there^^^


I would say I am starting a new lifestyle with more healthy foods and exercise and would enjoy someone that doesn't mind a walk and some quinoa salad but enter your fav healthy food.

You know someone with a phone that can take pics of you with a nice uncluttered background preferably one outside.

Fish is meat.

I had an abused foster dog I received when she was 10 years old with many health issues. I put her on a grain free vegetarian diet and she flourished until 2 months shy of 18.
So bullocks on "dogs cant be vegetarians and healthy".Unless the *meat products* that are in commercial dog food is human grade, its crap.I would bet those that say dogs should eat meat feed their dogs non-human grade food.

Men-people are tired it seems to me or have grown so used to being alone and they don't think IT can happen for them ( most) by 65 and from what I have seen IRL lately they just love for the woman to go after them for a change.My older gal pals have shown me the light.
