The "Fight"

Wow! I cannot believe how Diabetes can control your life, once it takes a hold of your system. I was never given the opportunity of pre-diabetes. If you get this red flag, take heed, be warned to fix it right then and there. Once diabetes takes up residence in your body it's there for life, you can put it in a dorment state by not feeding it. But just like fat cells, it's there to begin again if you disturb it by returning to SAD diet. You know that old saying "You can't go home again" ...

But just like fat cells, it's there to begin again if you disturb it by returning to SAD diet. You know that old saying "You can't go home again" Same with D2. And as you age, it gets even harder. I tried to fend off medications for a long time with just diet and exercise. But again if you return to old habits of eating (mine is sugar) It becomes a game of "Who wins?" And in the end, as I have seen in the statistics it always will be D2. I had a friend I am sure I blogged earlier on that was on the meds, insulin and very sedentary, that wouldn't change his way of eating. He had a stroke recently, and he just thought the meds would do the trick
and he could continue to eat poorly. Well, that was a wake up call.

I took some pictures today but will have to work on getting them up tomorrow...I'm glad you asked about Sammy because it helped me to get some more pictures of him, my goat, 1 dog, 2 horses, 2 cottontails, and a lot of quail. emoticon

Today was a totally plant based diet with no added sugars. Not sure I could ever eat better than today but it's not easy because my emotional eating brain is screaming for junk food, just like it always does. But nothing I ate today triggered me and I think eating this way will help me binge less.

Take things in very small steps. A group I'm working with encourages us to NOT use up all our willpower trying to do everything perfectly. You are doing good not try to eliminate everything at once. I'm not going to expect myself to match how well I ate today, everyday, because I'm no where near the place I need to be for this to be easy.
