One of my weaknesses is buying (and reading) magazines. My husband has diabetes and I am always on the lookout for information. I just bought the current issue of "Diabetic Living" and was really struck by an article by Toby Smithson. pg. 36/37 "My Diagnosis Became My Life"}
She was able to truly manage her diabetes and is no helping others do the same.
But one paragraph really stood out - it could apply to anyone who is trying to become healthier, trying to lose weight.
"The real question about diabetes self-management responsibilities is not "Can you do it?", but rather simply "Will you do it?"
As she says further in the article'
"Managing diabetes well is a huge inconvenience... But what other choice do we have than to meet the challenge head-on? The stakes are literally life and limb."
She prioritizes her health and always gives time to what needs to be done to maintain good health. This is something we must all do. Asking whether we will do it is a great way to start.
