Do You Really WANT to Reverse Your Pre diabetes ?
Many people that have been diagnosed with pre diabetes say to me, “Oh I will be just fine,” when I tell them how I reversed my pre diabetes. What they really mean is, “I am not sure I want to do that.” Sure, they like the idea of being free of, this condition for good. The obvious appeal of NOT developing diabetes.
But do they really want the lifestyle, and everything else that comes with it? Things like:
Forcing themselves to change their eating habits when nobody’s breathing down their neck.
When they don’t really want to do it. Having to exercise. Being in charge of making sure their body gets the right amount of physical activity.
Monitoring blood glucose level regularly. Thinking about their pre diabetes ALWAYS.
This lifestyle isn’t perfect.
But here’s the thing: if you WANT to do it, you can. That’s pretty much the only criteria for this. You don’t need qualifications, you don’t need permission, you don’t need a huge budget to start.
You just have to want it enough. You have to be willing to make certain sacrifices, and to work hard to kiss your pre diabetes goodbye.
Looking back, I was determined to beat this thing (pre diabetes) and I was willing to do whatever it takes.
As soon as I figured out I could reverse my pre-diabetes, I was on it. I knew I was willing to make sacrifices to make this happen. It was an easy decision.
OK, It’s not easy to make changes, or easy to sit down for a meal and not have all your favorite foods every day. Not easy to get on your exercise machine or get out for a walk, follow your dietitian’s advice and listen to your doctor. Or to figure out what you’re suppose to do next. It wasn’t even easy to get started, It took me from January to September to reduce my blood glucose level to 92 mg/dl.
But it became easy to deal with all the stuff that came my way. Because actually when you are on a mission fully determined — it becomes easy.
So don’t ask yourself if you can do this. (You can.) Don’t ask yourself if you will be successful (You won’t know until you try.) Just ask yourself this: do you really want it?
