So here it is, my secret:
I want to conquer my diabetes.
It's simple. I know - and it is the REASON for some of my other goals (clean eating, exercise...). It is hard to admit that is the heart of it, because what if I do these things and my blood sugars are still not controlled? What if I lose 50 pounds and am still diabetic?
Well, if I lose 50 pounds and I am still struggling with diabetes, there is good news. That's right! I will have lost 50 pounds, have more energy, look and feel healthier, and keep up with my kids better! Now I'm not saying that my goal is to lose 50 pounds this year, I picked that number arbitrarily (but it would be a fantastic goal for the year). I just want to live healthy and look healthy. No, not true - I want to BE healthy this year.
Here's to a healthy year.
