I see you in the showcase
You’re calling out to me
You’re such a lovely color
and your rump is nice and lean
Oh pork I want to bite you
and chew you up real slow
Savor your lovely flavor
Once you’ve been cooked just so
But the Doctor says you’re history
I must stay away from your kind
Now my life is full of misery
I’ve had to say bye-bye!
Okay, I’m okay…really! I’m just ransacking the place trying to find something decent to eat. I would love to fry up some bacon, but those days are gone. Now I must settle for this lousy bowl of oatmeal & a piece of toast. I suppose I’ll get used to it, but I don’t want to…Stupid Cholesterol!
I was actually supposed to start watching my cholesterol last year when my level was at 210. The Doctor said with my family history my cholesterol level should be 175 or lower. He then gave me a year to bring it down with diet & exercise or he said we would have to take different avenues to bring it down (lipitor).
Well the year went by and my level was at 228 this time. WHAT, I really thought I could will my cholesterol down with my super mind powers! So I guess I didn’t take the diet seriously enough, and I kind of stopped doing the treadmill thingy. The doc must have forgotten about the Lipitor, because all he said was I really needed to start watching my diet and get some exercise. I wasn’t about to remind him, because I looked up Lipitor and it has some scary side effects. Sooo I decided I needed to start doing a better job at lowering my cholesterol and I finally eliminated the pork from my diet. I still have ham occasionally, but not very often. I also had to go to 2% milk, low-fat creamer, low-fat yogurt, etc.. Now I just need to start working on the exercise part, but who’s got time for that?
