Disciplined life-style change

Are you struggling with your attempts at controlling type 2 diabetes? You are not alone, I am too. Fortunately, I am winning and maintaining my changed lifestyle. I am not bragging, but want to encourage YOU! Controlling this disease is NOT easy, however, it IS possible. Please review my previous posts: “Diabetes, Take it Seriously” and “Controlling Type II Diabetes – part 1

Dr. Oz says “I have developed a four-week strategy to help at-risk patients start down a healthier path. It’s a gradual process, with each week building on the last. Just remember: This isn’t a simple diet-and-exercise plan. It’s a whole new philosophy that could save your life.” Read more: Dr Oz’s 4-week diabetes prevention plan; link provided courtesy of

Do you know what many experts agree is one of the most effective tools for controlling type 2 diabetes? OK, I will not make this a question and answer session. The answer is YOU; YOU have to exercise and control what YOU eat. I can only speak from experience “CHANGE YOUR LIFE-STYLE!”

According to “Diabetes Treatment Begins At Your Home…

Controlling type 2 diabetes is possible

I am not trying to be a pest, we are in this together…it helps to be informed. Do your research, but keep in mind four basic elements for success in controlling type 2 diabetes and other conditions.

  1. Medicate on schedule – develop a routine schedule to take your medicine; example: if you take your pills for type 2 diabetes at 9:00 am today, try taking it each day at the same time or as close to that time as possible. Use modern technology to help you remember, set an alarm on your cell phone or computer. Ask members of your support system (like a trusted family member or friend) to call you or help you with suggestions.
  2. Monitor glucose levels – I know it is not fun, for some it is painful and others simply forget. Stop, do not make excuses đŸ™‚ this is very important so make it a priority. Again I suggest using technology and people who support and love you to help you. You can win; take control of your health.
  3. Proper nutrition – eating properly is very essential to being a diabetes beater. Hearing stories of my ancestors dying from diabetes helped me make a life-change in my eating habits; having type 2 diabetes is not a death sentence. I loved sweets, lemon meringe pie, peach cobblers, donuts and pastries, 7up, root beer, cream soda and the list goes on. Give ’em up if you want to live a healthy life; that is the bottom line.
  4. Routine exercise – you do not have to act like you are training for the Olympics. I mastered the other three, but this is my biggest challenge, especially after moving to southern California, the area I live in does not have nice parks. The oddest thing—not a deterent— was people laughing at me while I worked out in parking lots :-). The most difficult part for me is getting motivated, I often lack the energy to get going. But I know from experience that exercise is a key component in this struggle. I am happy to say that I am mindful of doing all I can to just keep moving, even if it is getting up from being in front of this computer to get water, cook or anything that will make me move. We can do this, are you with me? “Learn to reverse diabetes
