Since the start of the treatment, i knew i had to do something with how i was eating. So far, my diabetes had too much control on my life. After I gave birth, I felt there was nothing I could do and my blood pressures was a sign of that. As the weeks went by, I realized this was not about doing exaggerated diets or taking miracle pills. It is about learning and wisely choosing what to eat.
The first weeks were the hardest, not only physically, but mentally as well. It only takes a second for our heads to tell us to go back to old habits that do not require sacrifices. My will to get better was stronger. I was able to do better since my husband was also going trough the same process and we had each other for support to carry on.
After a couple of weeks, I started seeing changes. Not only weight wise, but on my pressure and diabetes. It was a drastic change. My medication changed. I was more energetic than ever. I had an unmatched amount of energy. I didn’t have to tell my mind to resist as much, merely the changes were part of what i wanted in my life. I slowly started to decrease in clothe size.
I learned to read labels, cook healthier and when I realized it became part of my routine. At one point the scale kept saying the same weight but my clothes said something else. At times like this i felt stuck. I can say i can think and eat healthier now. Thank Lurriane for helping me in this process, guiding me in every step and shift my perspective.
