Dear Fellow Sparkers,
I wrote a note to my mouth today on my nutrition tracker.
"Mouth, what do you say we cut down on the high carb snacks, huh? Let's aim for a no chocolate or ice cream day tomorrow and give my poor pancreas a break and a little love and understanding."
I can feel my poor, pre-diabetic pancreas pumping away, and really trying to keep up, but at the rate I am going, it's going to give out, and I will be full blown Type II Diabetic in a year or two.
So it's kinda crazy to write a note to my mouth, but you know, my mouth is the begining of my disgestive system, so it makes sense. I've got to try to keep up the fight against high blood sugar, and if I have to write a note to various body parts and personalize them to make them more real, I will.
What do you say kidneys? Do you want to be damaged from diabeties?
Or, eyes, do you want to go blind? Didn't think so.
Or toes, do you want to get infected, and end up being severed from the rest of my body? Didn't think so either.
Or heart, do you want some good ole' calcified arteries from out of control blood sugar, like good dear old grandpa? Nope, I saw what the result was of that!
Show some love, fellow diabetics, or just fellow Sparkers, to your body; your organs, your eyes, your toes....the list can go on. Many individual body members make up a whole body.
Think about them!
No one's perfect, but I'm sure going to try! Tell me one body part you feel motivated to take care of today!
