How can it be? Can there possibly be an entity, a person or thing that is anti Thanksgiving, that wishes to do it harm? I believe that the answer is yes an d that I have positively identified the culprit. This opponent is something about which I have warned previously. But now, its nefarious tentacles have launched a personal attack against our household. What is it? You should know by now, it is , it is the evil cholesterol. Yes that despicable villain, that alters our diets, has taken away my potato chips, and turned many of us into constant label readers at the grocery store.
Its stealthy approach has required Mrs THT to employ the use of medication to fight the battle. Now, don’t get me wrong. i am thankful for te medication for when one must, one must. But Thanksgiving, the feast of thanks, whatever one’s choice of food to feast upon, has been forced to adjust.
So, adjust we have and adjust we will. No longer will one eat with no thought of consequence( except a few extra pounds) we will fight the good fight. Adios potato chips, it is Utz no more. Popcorn has surpassed you as a weapon keep ourselves healthy. I trust your day of thanks was blessed, enjoyable and a healthy as possible. We know the enemy, it is not us, but those choices that can and will be improved. (As long a sI can drink Mello-Yello, that is.) Didn’t Snoopy serve popcorn on A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving? Sure he did. Always the role model, that beagle.
At long last, after a stealthy attack, the inhibiter of the e njoyment of food has forced Mrs THT onto medication, a swell a sdietary adjustments.
On July 16 I wrote about the low cholesterol diet that my wife was given . And as events have proven my bemoaning of her diet and its limited food choices have scored a direct hit . Results of my physical this week indicated a 10 % increase in my cholesterol since last year’s physical . So we now can share her dietary choices . Pardon my waving goodbye to my potato chips , french fries, pizza , sausage , bacon etc. Of course, an increase in cholesterol has to be accompanied by a bit of a weight increase . I have been mandated to lose 2 pounds in the next month . I know, I know that isnt so bad and lots of folks get more strict demands from their physician . Perhaps what is hitting me so hard is that for years I have paid scant attention to my weight and my physicals have shown good cholesterol levels . But, as my physician pointed , you are getting older- who knew ? Know any good woe is me songs ?
