I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir here but this little article should not even be news. who cares if Janet Jackson now looks like a healthy American woman instead of as another anorexic celebrity? (I would love to look that great! she looks good!) If 160 lbs. is "troubling" then what am I? Just a great big tragedy? Is 117lbs. the standard? come on! bad American news journalists! bad!!
This being said, I did have a busy day meeting with my oral surgeon for the last time (yay!! no more mouth torture!), and with a diabetes nutritionist and a diabetic educator. I've had this disease for a few years but I need to get better, especially now so that in "the 3 or 4 years or so" when I want to have babies, I can. Both diabetes people were so nice and encouraging and this is the first time that I have heard that 2 things that I really love- peanut butter and diet soda- are not bad!! This being said, I did make a committment to be more mindful of my diabetes and of what I eat- baby steps but doable steps. I wasn't lectured but rather left feeling motivated. so Yay! for me!
Prayers for me for this week- that I finish the readings and paper that I have due next Tuesday- I have to read 100 more pgs of one book, write a 7pg paper on that; and I have to read 300 pages of LUTHER (yawwwwnnn- this is the centuries ago tall, skinny white guy that had problems with Catholicism. This isn't the "I have a dream" Luther, who I read last year for the same professor actually.) (Also pray that I finally get back into the schedule of work and school and that I sleep better at nights.) Oh it's overwhelming but I know I can do it and I would appreciate the prayers.
