As you begin this diabetes journey, you may find it hard to remain motivated. Set your health goals and then set written or digital reminders for them. Display inspirational quotes throughout your home or add motivational images as a screensaver. And finally, reward yourself for small successes by offering yourself an incentive of your choosing.
While it is vital to have a strong support system, that support system may not be available 24-7. Therefore, you need to keep yourself motivated during the times they are not around. You need to want success for yourself as much as your support system does.
I'm CJ, a wife and mom of three living with type 2 diabetes since I was diagnosed in 2019. I am a fervent advocate for chronic illness and diabetes. In addition to serving as a moderator and contributor to the Type2Diabetes.com community, I'm also an ambassador and influencer for the American Diabetes Association, Blue Circle Voices network, Chronic Disease Coalition, and Healthline Diabetic App Community.
By sharing my journey, I hope to inspire others and educate them about diabetes so they can get tested for their A1C levels and insulin levels, as well as find out if they are genetically predisposed to it.
If one person could benefit from my story, then I know that the journey was worth it.
