	I am a type 1.5, and I'm more than 50 pounds overweight, but my
A1c's are usually below 6 on the pump.  Frankly, you have a much better shot
at getting under 7 on the pump than not.  Your doctor's goals for you are
reasonable, but his method of approaching them is nonsense.  If you hear any
more about this, start shopping for a new doctor with less attitude.  Being
on the pump is not some privilege that he can lord over you to get you to
modify your behavior.  Craziness...
