On a cozy fall day, just after Thanksgiving, a Momma of Anna Pyatskowit's was sitting on the couch drinking a hot chocolate and relishing the smell and look of a clean house. (She had just finished cleaning it with her daughter.)
Anna put on her psychiatrist's glasses and begins to question her mother. Dr. Pyatskowit, scribbles her findings, below.
As for the patient:
She felt that hot chocolate was the best drink in the whole wide world, and as she rubbed her forehead and closed her eyes, said that she felt depressed about not being able to have it for the next month. She said that, despite this depression, she still will not be having it in the next month.
"Well, brownies aren't quite as good as hot chocolate, but they're almost as good." She said next, but then, with a groan, she admitted that "No, I won't be having those either."
She felt guilty about not getting her walk in today, but did feel good about missing lunch because she was working too hard to remember it....so she lost a lot of calories and didn't replace them right away.
The Psychiatrist finds this subject depressing and turns to another. (And, no, it's not because she just had half a brownie and a hot chocolate herself.)
Mrs. Lily Pyatskowit feels that young ladies "Between twelve and.....hmm....forever" (as the Psychiatrist put it) should take care of their heath in the following manner:
"Take a walk (or exercise for 30 minutes daily), cut out white sugar, white flour and unhealthy fats." (She said this subject was too complicated to expound upon, as she's tired and can't think straight.)
She also confessed, upon further questioning, that young ladies ought to avoid sugars that aren't white as well. (Brown, for instance.)
At this point in time, I must drop my investigation of this "client", as she says "We'd better go...You'll have to continue your interrogation later."
Happy Holidays! And remember...Stay Healthy!
