8 thoughts on not giving up on diabetes & moving forward

I don’t usually pass along quotes, although many inspire me toward appreciating life. But here’s one I thought I’d share. It may serve to strengthen your resolve or lighten your load–especially if you’ve been worrying a little too much about the “what if’s” of diabetes or another health issue.

Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.                                                                                                                                              – Steve Maraboli       

Blessings? They surround us, challenging our thinking and the obstacles in our path. Diabetes, in a strange way, has ultimately made me a better person by forcing me to think, problem-solve, outwit and be able to laugh at all the zany situations that come up and are related to the disease. Would I rather be free of its burdens? Of course. But I also give thanks, at this time of the season, for its challenges. They remind me of the joy and beauty all around me. 

Celebrating Tess & Zoe's bds!

B well, b happy. And have a happy THANKSgiving. 

Until next time, kath

    Thanks, Lyndon. Regarding the weight issue, low carb is a good way to go. It’s also essential for most people with diabetes–unless they are working out and physically active. At those times, carbs can be better used by the body for energy. Don’t know about the diet you mention but will look it up.

    Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it Now I want to ask you something else. I have heard the Low Carb Diet is a very good way to lose weight quickly. is that true? Also have you considered the “telic 22 diet”? (do a search on google to learn about it) Ive heard some awesome things about it and my sister lost a ton of weight with this diet.
