New Path Ahead
Monday, June 03, 2013
Well, it finally happened today, June 3, 2013. After 6 years being pre-diabetic, my husband was diagnosed as a full-blown diabetic. He will be on insulin for the rest of his life, unless a cure is found.
I have vowed to stand by him, like I did when we had to quit smoking due to his heart problems, and give up my sugary drinks and desserts, cut back on carbs, and exercise more regularly. All the things I was supposed to be doing as a member of SparkPeople, but kept procrastinating about doing, is now going to have to be a priority for someone's sake other than mine. Hopefully, it will be enough motivation this time. I don't want to lose my husband. I love him very much.
There is another motivator as well. I am pre-diabetic,also. The same fate could be lurking in my future, unless I take action NOW! There is no longer a choice. I must take up the reins and steer our horse onto the right path. I must stay determined to follow that path, no matter how many obstacles get thrown in the way. I know my
s will help me with that.
