Typical January

Thursday, January 03, 2019

This morning I lay here in bed thinking about how every January begins like this and by January 31st I have relapsed back into my bad habits. What will I do different in 2019? How will I get rid of the morbidly obese diagnosis? When will the doctor stop recommending surgery? All the answers are up to me. I am the only one who can change this. I have to continue with the consistency of working towards being healthy. I have to beat the sugar addiction because I am type 2 diabetic. So instead of jumping in full force and cutting everything out. I will focus on one major goal weekly and be aware of others. This week is no diet coke. This is huge especially fountain pops. Yesterday I went to the gas station and got a 44oz ice water. It helped fight the craving!!! Small steps will lead to big victories!!

    Be strong; you can do this! I'm taking one thing at a time, too. Diet Coke is a big thing for me and I'm slowly limiting them. Good on ya and keep up the awesome work!

    One way that has helped me is learning to say "NO" As in, NO, I refuse to buy those cookies. No, I refuse to buy that ice cream. No, thank you, I don't want a piece of my co-workers birthday cake.

    Hi there,Good luck, strength and conviction to you! I am a self-diagnosed pre-diabetic (I bought a glucose monitor and my fasting blood sugars have been above the normal range).

    I recommend intermittent fasting to you, as recommended by Dr. Jason Fung, of Toronto, who treats diabetics with dietary intervention. And also have a look at Joy Kiddie's website. She is a formerly obese, and diabetic, registered dietician who decided to follow Dr. Fung's advice and blog about it. Also for inspiration, I've been listening to the MD Low Card podcast (where I heard the podcast with Joy Kiddie and started to browse around her website)

    We can do it! Keep blogging and keep searching for distractions from your addictions! We do not want to become a statistic and die an early death!
