It Isn’t Always Easy

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” Frederick Douglass

Just a simple thought.  When you are beginning to fight PreDiabetes or Diabetes, it’s a struggle.  To put a point on it, it’s hard.  We have to change so much.  What we eat.  How much we eat.  When we eat.  We have to exercise.  And then, if you are like me, you have to get used to taking meds regularly.

A lot of changes.  A lot of struggle.  But, you have to persevere to be successful.  You have to get it right.  Why? Because your health and quality of life depends on it.  Pretty simple.

Never give up

The Great News is that you can do it.  You can change how you eat.  You can lose that weight, if needed.  Remember that the weight represents years of eating, so it’s not going to come off over night…or in 30 days…or in 60 days.  It’s going to take time.  Count your calories or carbs, exercise your 30 minutes a day, and it will come off.  You can remember to check your glucose.

Changes, I know.  But you can do it.  And, the success is so sweet!  (Oh, come on, you have to like the whole sweet and Diabetes juxtaposition.)

You can do this.  You can win your War On Diabetes.  Be patient.  Be consistent.  And, you will in the War.

Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.  – Saadi

As always, thank you for reading.
