Day Seven: The Real ME in Stage Three

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Well here I am in Stage Three. My action step for today is to determine my underlying goal for losing weight. I have to admit, that I must put some thought into this. Losing weight is not usually for the sake of losing the weight; It usually is for a bigger purpose. So, what is mine?

One of my goals is to get off insulin. I am tired of poking myself three times a day. It gets old very fast. But I understand I did this to myself so I must take insulin as long as it takes to get my pancreas in working order.

Another goal is to look good. I have never believed that I looked good in clothes. And don't get me started about bathing suits. UGH!

I also want to be an example to my daughters. They are not in shape and I am afraid it is my fault. I was not careful with the food I brought into the house. Since we moved here, they have not been active at all. So, I want to be able to show them that at any age you can be healthy and fit.

The most important goal, however, is to obey God. I have been putting myself first instead of Him. By getting my eating under control, staying active, and losing weight, I am giving Him glory through my body and allowing Him to work through me.

So, there I have it. The underlying reasons; the main goals for losing weight, getting healthy, and living longer. With God as my Pilot, how can I not reach my goals???

    Getting off insulin is a great goal because the injections are the tip of the iceberg. Improving blood sugar control gets you off insulin. Improved blood sugar control has far-reaching health effects. All your efforts now will return 100-fold in the prevention of illness later.

    I do beleive that with healthy eating you can manage your sugar. My dad started this diet because his sugar was very high - 18. After 2 weeks it went to 8. eating healthy does work!

    Good Luck!
