AND I SUCK AT IT.
I love food. I am over weight, I don't get enough exercise and I eat too much. Being diabetic means that I have to try to watch what I eat, take medication twice a day, test my blood regularly and give myself insulin once a day. I hate it. I hate it all. I hate trying to remember to take my medication. I hate the inevitable disappointment when I fall off the wagon and my blood sugar gets high. I hate the lectures from doctors and specialists who to be fair are doing their job and trying to keep me healthy. I hate the guilt I feel before the appointments and I hate that I have to give up some of the things that I love, or should.
Problem is, I love my wife and my daughter and my family and want to be around to love, laugh, cry and live with them for a long long time.
I don't know what the answer is. I really don't. I wish I was one of those people that could just choose to do something and have the will power to just do it but I'm not.
I guess there is no easy answer. Anything worth attaining requires work and more than a little sacrifice.
"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Maybe I just need to get enthusiastic about getting fit, losing weight and getting my blood sugar under control. I am not sure exactly how one goes about that.
