No Substitute for Living Her Best Life
The transformation of Sherri Shepherd is not yet complete. (Are any of us ever really done figuring out who we are and what we want to be?) But for Shepherd, there's an undeniable upside to how she's living her life with diabetes.
Exhibit A and B: She's certain she'd never look at a food label otherwise. Or stop to consider how the food she eats changes how she feels because her "vegetables would normally be McDonald's French fries."
She's passionate about being healthy, especially for those living with diabetes. People like her loved ones holding court at the half-roundtable in our minds. There, Sherri 2021 is leading the conversation with a previous version of herself and her immediate family (past and present) and, of course, Uncle Earl. It's just the kind of family gathering that in the past would have caused Shepherd to struggle against her family's deep emotional attachment to sugar.
Something terrible happened? Moms gonna bake an apple pie.
Bad breakup? Man, who wants to eat a plate of steamed broccoli?
But she's here today to tell you she's found her healthy substitute for that life.
She's eating well and eating differently, and that's helping her live well by living differently.
For all that's been lost, that's what she's gained. That and everything else that her life can offer.
