It really helped hearing from all of you and your support.  I have pretty much cut out all bread, potato's, pasta, another words CARBS.  I did get a meter from the doctor and have to check my blood sugar twice a day. Doctor has me on Metphormin 500mg., once a day.  I can't exercise like I would like cause I only have one foot.  (Light at the end of the tunnel)  Other doctors have just about got my third foot healed up and then I get my new prosthetic foot.  They tell me I am going to have to relearn how to walk.  Once I can walk again the weight will go down to normal and my blood sugar levels will most likely go to normal.  (Go plan anyway, don't you think?)
But again I want to thank everyone who responded, I thank you so much.

Very nice of you to say that, Jim! The folks her are always willing to help out, sometimes from professional knowledge, sometimes from personal experience and other times reaching out to support. Your new experiences would be welcome information for many who share that problem with you also welcomed by many who just want to understand. Stay well and hope to read some of your findings.

About Me
I am a easy going guy who is always busy. Yes ladys and gents I don't have time for TV. During the winter months I am either hunting or most likely helping down at the church. During spring I am working on repairs outside and getting my hotbox ready for the garden. Summer and fall I am busy canning and freezing what comes out of my garden. I also cook all the meals for the day or event.
My favorite things to cook
I have to thank my mother for this. She broke her ankle when I was 10 years old, and there is where I learned to cook. I am nothing compared to my mother,(she is a true Chef), can make a delicous dish from scraps in the refigerator. Anyhow, I make a lot of bread type, deserts, nationalities.
My favorite family cooking traditions
You most likely won't like this. As a youngster we used to have family reunions and get togethers all the time. We would all go fishing and have a fish fry, and the ladys would bring side dishes and of corse desserts. That has gone now because America is to busy.
My cooking triumphs
Everything I have ever done has been great. I always end up with a empty dish.
My cooking tragedies
None: My daughter burnt popcorn;;; how do you burn popcorn? She said I did it, thats my girl.
