But this one was not welcome,
a diagnosis of diabetes type two.
Oh no, I say as visions of sugarplums
dance and disappear in my dreams.
How can I survive not eating
my favorite chocolates, pies, cakes,
cookies, and most of all ice cream?
It's possible to still eat them but only
in wisdom and moderation.
Maybe this is a blessing in disguise?
Being forced to consume calories
with my improved health in mind.
I could learn to love raw vegetables.
Fat chance-maybe loose some weight?
I wouldn't mind, my new regime
is to eat smarter, exercise more and
be healthier. All do-able with a lot of
will power and dedication each day.
