Knowing that you have diabetes is one thing, but accepting and working through the times of denial is another. It is very important that you talk with your physician as well as your dietitian and learn all about diabetes and how it will affect you.
Read articles and books on the subject to educate yourself. Knowledge in this case really is power. Continuing to deny that you have the disease will harm you in the long run and the sooner you can come to grips with it and accept it, the better off you will be.

The first indicator of eventual failure is denial even in the smallest way. Don't fudge anywhere! Even if you feel ashamed about a slip up it's far better to embrace the mistake and move on then try to ignore it. It also helps when you want to see what is working and what isn't further down the road.
I hate the word diet. Immediately you set yourself up for fail. This is where I have failed ally my life. I don't have a name for what I am doing. But I am doing it and it is working, 11.5 kg in three months
I also hate the terms healthier lifestyle, fitness plan etc...... Maybe I am in denial. I dont care, it is working. I had pizza hut the other night. I also had some chocolate. And I am still losing. It may not be Biggest Loser weightloss but it is slowly coming off. 3kg til next goal.
