Life Changes

Life changes ... whether I want it to or not!

The biggest change I've had to make in my life recently was my diet. Not because I want to lose weight, although that's been a nice side effect. But because I had no choice. Not really.

On March 12, I was diagnosed with diabetes. Not the end of the world by any means, though it was still a shock to find this out. I really shouldn't have been surprised, both my parents were diabetic. But it still requires change because I don't want the complications I've seen my parents have.

So, I'm taking a natural OPC-3 suppliment - which I lovingly refer to as "Threepio" because all it is - is C3PO's name in a different order! I spent one whole week on a De-tox diet...which let me tell you is no fun at all! Vegetables and fruit...and that was it!!! But I've upgraded and can eat more things now. Chicken, Tuna, fish - I can have every day...Beef, pork twice a week...shrimp, oysters etc...twice a month! Still not eating stuff like bread...anything that has flour in it. I've dropped 20 pounds and 50 points in my blood sugar. I'm really feeling kind of good. Hungry alot, but good.

Another life change that I had little choice in, was Justin's switched jobs! He no longer works with me at the paper. He works at a meat processing facility now. He wasn't happy here, and so I didn't try to get him to stay very hard. Truth is, I'm not very happy here and I'm looking for a new job too. Though not at the same place...killing cows and processing them doesn't appeal to me. I've got a few aps and resumes out.

It's not even about the money for me, it's the lousy principles I've sen at work in this place recently. That we've all seen. One shouldn't have to be pretty and thin to be favored by the boss. Granted, he favors all women over the guys, which works in my favor...but not even that is right! What a pig! I should be favored because I work hard. Whatever.

I guess that's all for now. How's everyone doing?
