What’s YOUR reason?

Add your thoughts here… (optional)
My reason to lose weight is to not have to manage diabetes. I was very close to being put on injected insulin last year so I decided to lose weight. My reason to try to stay away from diabetes is my wife and all of the Boy Scouts who look to me as a leader and example.
That’s a very good reason rmadere! If losing weight means getting away from insulin injections, push for it! Diabetes is not fun at all, especially when injections are needed. Trust me; I know!
Rooting for you! Keep your chin up!
My reason is pretty much the same (different kid, though). When I learned my first son was about to be born, that’s when I decided to face my intrepedation and start using an insulin pump.
But I don’t understand this: why is your son, living in Canada, playing a field-sport while mine, living in the States, is on the ice? (I’ll have to post a photo or video sometime). Seems a bit unusual.
Hahaha Scott! That’s a good one! I blame this on my husband being from The States 😉
I want to be around for my kids, grandkids and my husband. We are hitting the big 25 year wedding anniversary next month, 31 together, and I want to be with him for another 25 years or so..And of course just for me.
Wow! Congrats Karen!
That’s very good reason! Would the second be because of loving yourself too? Only not to put too much pressure on yourself … 😉
Haha, taking care of myself and making sure I have no (Or very little) repercussion in my body from diabetes… Yes I guess that would be a close second! Especially if this means I’m healthy for my baby!
I mostly do it for those around me, who love me. My mom is one of my biggest reasons. She’s one of those amazing persons who does everything and anything for anyone. She is always putting others in front of herself. I don’t want to worry her with my diabetes.
That’s a very good reason! I bet your mother is very proud of you!
In my practice as a foot care nurse, I see many diabetics on regular basis. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how important foot care is to people with diabetes, especially as you get older. All I can say is, good for you!
Would you believe me if I told you my husband hydrates my feet with Aveno cream every single nights? Haha!
Excellent! Just make sure you dry really well between the toes since I wouldn’t want you to get athlete’s foot…the fungus likes moist, dark places like between the toes and athlete’s foot is easy for diabetics to get. If you get the chance, check out my professional blog, McDermottfootcare.com There’s good information on there for diabetics. Cheers and take good care of yourself 🙂
