Starting Over Again...Again...Agai

Saturday, December 08, 2007

Today is December 8, 2007. I am making a commitment to myself to get serious about my health and concentrate on doing the right things. I am committed to eating healthier, and most importantly exercising everyday. I am type 2 diabetic (insulin resistant) and I have Psoratic Arthritis. The arthritis on some days keeps me from feeling like exercising. On the other hand - I tend to use it as an excuse NOT to exercise. I need to get it together. After all, I'm only hurting myself by not exercising and eating right. With this kind of attitude, I will end up like my parents - dead from heart disease and diabetes - like my brother who is diabetic, has had open heart surgery, lasik eye surgery for diabetes, and neuropothy in his feet. After seeing all that my parents went through and what my brother has been through, you would think I would have learned from them.

I want to lose approximately 60 pounds by October of 2008.

    Take it one day at a time. You know what do diabetic wise. I know it is hard I too am diabetic. I say that I could have already lost the weight but I am an emotional eater. Beside this weight didn't come over nigth it won't take over night to get rid of. It's a new year coming up just start over now. I have been working along but my emotions got somewhat in the way. Not using that as an excuse I am vowing to over come that now and I will work hard to take care of myself and my diabetes. For this is war. We have a exercise thread in the thread of Living with Diabetes jump in and do what you can. You can make it. Just put one foot in front of the other and see what happends. The Lord is my helper with him I can't lose.
