Psoriasis, Anemia, Some Extra Pounds and a Pinch of High Glucose for Good Measure
Mmmm. Mountain Dew. My favorite soda since I was 13. Do you know there's 46g of sugar in a 12oz bottle? And that bottle is 170 calories? This is a big no-no when calorie counting. Too much of it also does bad things to your glucose levels. Trust me, I know. But it's just so yummy, and bubbly and it goes straight to my head and probably my thighs
Every time I try to improve my eating habits, I've tried to cut the soda out, but I just couldn't. Cake, ice cream, burgers, fries, no problem. But my Mountain Dew, I had to have a hit at least twice a day. Then night time comes around, the girls pull out the Oreos and how can I not join them? It's a before bedtime tradition. Another thing that went to my thighs, probably the cause of my love handles too.
Love handles, who came up with that bloody name anyway? I certainly don't love having handles of fat hanging out below my bra. Sheesh.
On November 20, 2009, I was diagnosed with psoriasis and anemia. My doc was also complaining of my glucose levels being borderline and "haven't you learned anything from the gestational diabetes mam?'Called me Mam. Witch. Who refers to a 33 year old as mam?
