I haven't shared with all of you my main reason why changing my life has become such a passion of sorts...
I have lost many loved ones the last few years. My Grandfather passed away from Leukemia,he was a diabetic. My other Grandfather died of a massive heart attack, also was diabetic. I lost a Grandmother to many years of battling different types of Cancer, she was a diabetic. Another Grandmother just recently passed away from a stage 4 brain tumor, I lost my mother in law at the age of 59 from stage 4 Bone Cancer, a aunt at the age of 54 just passed away from Cancer. My husband lost both his Grandparents in the last 3 years from Cancer as well and his Grandfather was a Diabetic.
1 more, MY FATHER...he suffered from a Heart Attack a couple of years ago in his late 50's. He also was dealing with Diabetes.
Diabetes is a heart felt concern for me, trying to avoid this is my passion. I had Gestational Diabetes during my pregnancy with my 3rd child and was told considering my family history Type 2 Diabetes is a 90% sure thing for me in my life unless I make some changes...
My father fought hard after his heart attack, he put his life back on track with a healthy diet and exercise routine and because of those changes he is NO LONGER a Diabetic!!!! Praise the Lord!! He looks and feels amazing, and I am so proud of him:)
For these many reasons, I feel that it is my job to treat my body with the most resepect possible! I am given a healthy body...I think it would be a shame to disrespect this wonderful gift by putting "crap" (sorry) into my body and letting this valuable gift slip away when so many others have lost there lives...I still have mine and I want to be hear as long as possible to enjoy this gift God has blessed me with! :)
Don't live your life saying "I will start tomorrow" Because you may only have today. So make the best of this GLORIOUS day and treat yourself and your body with the respect and care it deserves :-)
