The new me next year!!

Wednesday, December 05, 2007

That picture is a picture of what I will strive for. It has been a rought road the past few weeks. I am making a vow to myself and my family espcially my mother and sister. They brag on how I fight this disease. I must admit that I have slipped for the past few weeks. There is no reason to blame this on the holidays. I for one know what diabetes will do to you if you don't fight against it. And I am a fighter. My goal is to put diabetes on the run. So inspite of the holidays the fight is still on. No way I am giving up. I have saw first hand twhat this disease can do. That is just not an option for me. I have come too far to stop now. The enemy is defeated and Christ is my helper with him I can go forward.

Of course I have found some more info. If anything this disease has caused me to be a researcher to help myself and other who want help on how to step on top of their diabetes.

An estimated seven percent of the U.S. population has diabetes, which in recent years has been linked to diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, due to insulin resistance in the brain. While there's no cure for diabetes yet, doctors say maintaining a proper diet is one key to controlling the condition.

Taking advantage of natural compounds in foods is an alternative to prescription drugs, says Richard A. Anderson, lead scientist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Beltsville, M.D. "We shouldn't be relying on drugs if we can alleviate or prevent diabetes simply by changing our eating habits."

Food Fixes

Add these sugar-stompers to your shopping list:

Tea Chemicals known as polyphenols found in black, green, and oolong teas boost insulin activity.
Cinnamon Less than half a teaspoon daily increases sugar metabolism in fat cells.
Buckwheat Traditionally used to make soba noodles, buckwheat contains chemical compounds that reduce blood sugar levels.
Cherries Contain chemicals called anthocyanins that increase insulin production.
Guava Extracts from apple guavas lower blood-sugar levels.
Cocoa Decreases insulin resistance.

The Magical number of 177

Monday, November 26, 2007

I guses you could say coursity got me again. I wondered how long I could say at 177 pounds and not see results. Well today I was proved wrong. I am down to 176.1. A loss is a loss and I give God praise. This road hasn't been easy to travel. But as I know with God ALL THINGS are possible to them who believe and faith without works is dead. I am giving Christ my savior thanks for each and everything he does for. This is no time for to quit now I am going on in Jesus name victory is ahead and I see it!! Praise God the emeny lost another battle!! And I get to lose my weight ticker.
