Don’t be confused, this is somehow related to me being a diabetic
I was born with a sweet tooth, that I can say is so true. My love for sweets began when I was I think, 5 years old, in a street with almost every house was a convenient store or we call it here “sari-sari store”. I remember that whenever I passed by one store, I was always mesmerized by those colourful and different shaped candies, which most often than not, I ended up buying a few or more.. That was the beginning of my endless love for anything sweet.
Years passed by and without a hint that I could turn into a diabetic one day, I consumed maybe too much. I wasn’t even aware that there is such a thing called “sweet blood”. Well yeah, silly me for being ignorant.
In grade school, my family never bothered to check my cabinet drawers which were full of chocolates and candies, sometimes tucked in a small canister or even in resealable plastics. In high school, some people said that I need to eat a lot of rice because I was thin as a stick. Therefore, every time I ate, my plate was full of it and I had seconds and maybe third rounds. In college, nobody cared including me, so I continued eating hoards of carbs and sweets. I never gained weight more than 100lbs and that was mainly because it’s in the genes.. or so i thought
When i turned 33, that’s when things started to “bulge” literally. I never imagined that I can be as fat as a cow, but, alas! things went a total 360 degrees turn into something bad. I was thin when i got pregnant at 29 and still the same weight when i delivered. But, it was a few years after that when I became one huge and ugly lady. The culprit – sweets, lots of it!
Anyway, sweets are a constant part of my life, because honestly, I’ve been backsliding a bit (sheesh, that’s a lie). Okay, i admit, it’s getting out of hand these past few months. Gee, the holidays are fast approaching and I’m kinda scared actually coz I know it would take a lot of effort to stay away or to totally turn my back . That’s why I said it’s a never ending battle err love affair, lol.
In my future posts, you’ll see the huge changes in ME. I won’t be embarrassed when I upload my old photos, because it might be able to help and inspire you into trimming down and also be scared of turning into one diabetic like me. Do come back often and accompany me in this journey
