Resolutions Anyone?


This time of the year I am sure folks are going to be writing about the need for resolutions for 2014.  You are going to see and hear a lot about resolutions during the next few days.  Heck, you are going to be bombarded by the need to make them.  You need to have goals, right?

Well, goals are good.  But instead of making resolutions, just get out there and do it.  And, any day is a good day to start; how about today?

You want to control your Diabetes? You want to lose a little weight? The two do go hand-in-hand quite often and are on resolution lists.  But, the truth of the matter is that only 8% of resolutions are achieved. 8%!  Seems like a lot of work for such a small success rate.

So, what are you going to do?

Wage War – you just start and do it.  No bells, whistles or trumpets announcing your beginning.  You just start your battle. And, what do you do to start? You eat a bit less and eat healthy food.  Your exercise a bit more.  You don’t have to go to the gym; you just have to do a bit of moderate exercise.  It’s amazing how fast the body will respond when fed the right food and given a little exercise!

Don’t get me wrong.  Resolutions are great, if kept and achieved.  They can impart a sense of purpose.  But, doing is better. Lowering your A1c is more empowering than making a resolution.  Losing 10 pounds is better than making a resolution to do so.  Getting out and just walking imparts a better sense of well-being than writing that you will get out and walk.

You know the tools you have to use to control Diabetes: Diet. Exercise. Meds.  Use them to lower your A1c and lose weight in 2014.  You can do it.  You can declare War On Diabetes and win.  I know you can. I believe in you.  Lose just 5 – 10% of your weight and you will begin to win your War.

Please, join me in Controlling Diabetes.  You only have your health to gain.

And, lest I forget: Happy New Year!  My wish for you is that the coming year is a healthier one; one in which you take control of your life and win your War On Diabetes.

As always, thank you for reading.

    No resolutions here Phil, just more of the same; doing it right!
