Fear of Diabetes!

// Published January 3, 2015 by Swati

I hope that I continue to maintain my fear of diabetes. Diabetes sound awful and my growing girth is scary. I hope I am able to continue exercising, recognizing that if I don’t get rid of this excess weight, I might be in big doo-doo in a few years.

There are so many reasons to be healthy. For one, since I have daughters, they will be constantly judged on their health based on their mum’s health (“if her mother is fit, she’ll be fine after marriage”). Second, I really DO want to be energetic…and as much as I don’t want to get my hopes up for grandchildren, wouldn’t it be joyous to play with them with the same energy that my parents and in-laws do?! Third, I really don’t want to be spending the rest of my life as an old, sickly woman.

So come on 2015, help me get there! Third day of physical activity. Let’s keep this going. I am SO thankful that my husband has been helping me by watching the kids when I am running. The kids are also getting better, and understand that I will be downstairs as soon as I am done running.
