Ellen Degeneres Should See This!

"If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading."
– Lao-Tzu

I'm tellin` ya... I dont know why Ellen hasnt contacted me yet! I have so many strange things to tell her!
Okay... Look at this... Do you EVEN BELIEVE that Marshalls could do this to their patrons? Come on! Throw some donations in this jar while salivating over cookies and candies below! I personally spied the shortbread cookies and my eyes traveled up only to get the big SMACKDOWN of my recent diagnosis. While the cash girl was ringing me up I was fumbling for the camera in total disbelief. She asked what I was doing and I told her that this is soooo wrong on Soooo many levels. She, on the other hand, was clueless.
As I looked down the stretch of cashier stands, every single checker had the same candy/diabetes donation display units. W.H.A.T. 
 T.H. E.  
OK, so I'm over it... But if any of you peoples have a direct pipeline to my Ellen.. please tell her that I KNOW that one day we will meet and chat about these wierd things in life.
Love yer guts,

That really is weird. And as you say, so. wrong. I suppose the thought behind this skewed marketing approach is that candy *sells*. And that it does, but the searing reality is that we need to be educating before it is too late. To be very honest with you, I have not been impressed (have been irritated) with the ADA's marketing/solicitation approaches, almost to the point --ok *to the point*-- of wondering if they are legit. But I haven't checked them out.
Gina, it's a huge lifestyle change, but *you can do it*!
Best wishes and prayers,

Gina, I am so glad that you bounce back so well! I know that the "diet" should help the scale move, but unfortuantely it goes much better with exercise. I hate it as much as you but if it helps they are finding in research that exercise helps everything! It may even help stave off Alzhiemers & dementia. Give yourself permission to sit out for a time but then start slow & get back to power walking or whatever you can tolerate & call exercise. YOU CAN DO IT!!! Take care, Jill
