Outsmarted

"Mom! This makes me so mad!", as I turned to see Kacey looking at this book at the register, I saw the frustration on her face. It's the frustration we deal with on a daily basis.

"Can she eat that?"
"She shouldn't be eating that cupcake!"
"Her sugar is high because she ate that cookie you gave her."
"She will outgrow it so for now just watch what she eats."

Most of the time we just ignore the comments and Kacey gives an occasional eye roll. But now what she's getting older, it's magazines like these that frustrate her. She stuffed it back on the shelf, let out a sigh and said, "If only they said "Reverse Type 2 Diabetes With Food". Yep! She's right! And WHY in the world would they show a picture of chocolate cake? Ummm...reverse diabetes with chocolate cake? Dang! We're all over that! Shape up in 20 minutes with chocolate cake? Yep! We're all over that too! And how about....Surprising Stress Busters...eat the chocolate cake and feel tons better but then feel guilty you ruined your diet. This is just ridiculous!

Prevention Magazine...how about adding in Type 2 diabetes and helping raise awareness of the difference between the two so that way my child doesn't have to deal with ignorant comments like those listed above. Thank you!

As it's been said before....my daughter CAN eat those sweets because thanks to modern technology she is sporting a snazzy insulin pump and continual glucose monitor around her waist in that bright green belt!
