Anyone can get diabetes. You can't run away from it, but you can control it with medication and weight loss. Even better, with good eating habits and exercise you might get off without medication. You might feel fat and silly working out with people who are in better shape, but it's worth it and you will feel wonderful when the weight starts dropping off. If you can afford it, it's worthwhile to hire a personal trainer to start you off on the right path. When you're familiar with the routine you can do it all yourself.
When you're determined enough you'll see results. The body was built to move, so move as much as is possible. Bodies weren't made for sitting on the couch, inactivity is your enemy. Good diabetes control also protects against the number one killer, cardiovascular disease. Although you may have over weight family members, Genetics is not an issue. Overweight is a result of the acceptance of bad eating habits and not enough exercise.
It is very important to control weight gain, but keeping your diabetes under control is even more important. The reason for life changes must be more important to you than the reason for staying the same. Diabetes medications can cause weight gain, usually weight gain is an accepted side effect of insulin because of the benefits. The reason being that insulin is a growth hormone that makes fat tissue. Does that mean you must resign yourself to weight gain? No, it doesn't.
Regardless of the medication you take you must practice prevention. Begin by changing your life in small ways. Use your food measuring tools to eat right sized proportions. Lighten up on mayo, dressings, and fat such as butter and oil to save calories. Don't go hungry, have a healthy breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with nutritious light snacks in between. Consume less calories than usual and exercise more. Do at least 30 minutes exercise every day and increase activity to burn more calories. Instead of high calorie food to treat your blood sugar lows, use a pure glucose source, such as tablets or gel that is low in calories but highly efficient in raising blood glucose.
Laura Hieronymous, APRN,BC,ADM,CDE says, "make yourself accountable for your diabetes and weight-loss commitment. When you write something down it gives it more power. Go public, the more people who know your plan, the more support you'll have." Write down your plan and share it with the people you know. The interest and support of others will help you lose weight according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Get your family and friends join you. It's a project every one can work on to improve health and satisfaction.
