Making a healthy decision

How did I lose 29 pounds this year?

I have a gene that pre-disposes me to diabetes. After talking to my doctor, I decided that I need to treat myself like a person who is pre-diabetic if I want to be healthy and live a long life.

I knew that I needed to lose some weight, but I had been thinking about losing weight and not doing much about it.

Talking to my doctor and thinking about the consequences of not losing weight helped me make a decision. For me, that was important. I made a decision that I was going to lose weight. I made a choice to stay healthy.

Once I made that decision, I found the information I needed. I still have a stack of books on my nightstand about what people with diabetes need to eat. I also have cookbooks with recipes for people with diabetes.

With that information, I made some rules for myself about what I am going to eat and what I am not going to eat.

That’s how I lost weight this year. First, I made a decision. Then, I gathered information about what I needed to do. And, finally, I made a plan and rules for myself.
