Aunt: Come here and give Auntie a hug!
Niece: Wow, you sure have lost some weight!
Aunt: How do you know that, Princess?
Niece: Because now, when I hug you, I can feel both of my arms around you and touch my fingertips. Are you on one of those diets that Mommy tries every month?
Aunt: Heh, heh, heh. No Sweetie. I’m just trying to eat healthier and move more so that I can spend more time with you!
Niece: What do you mean?
Aunt: Well, diabetes runs in our family and I’m trying to prevent it before I get it. There’s a new program that has tips on more than 50 ways to prevent diabetes. So I’m doing it and getting results.
Niece: So, you mean you’re doing this all for me?
Aunt: Well, something like that! Mwah!
Announcer: Talk to your healthcare provider. Losing a small amount of weight by being active thirty minutes, five days a week and eating healthier can prevent type 2 diabetes.
