national diabetes week

9 – 15 July is National Diabetes Week. With 280 people diagnosed every day in Australia with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, diabetes really is a concern for many.

Friday’s thought… You've heard me say it time and time again but I’m going to say it one more time – drink lots of water. Why do I keep on about it all the time? It’s simple, water helps keep your metabolism going, eliminates toxins and is necessary for every organ in your body. Don't underestimate the power of staying hydrated. It could be one of the easiest ways for you to feel better. How will you make sure you get your 8 glasses today? Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Thursday’s thought… Forget eliminating complete food groups! The ideal way to lose weight is to eat from all the food groups. Where you can go wrong, is eating too much of one food group. For example, rice isn’t a problem, but if you fill your plate with rice it becomes a problem. Portion control is an important part of long term weight loss success. So remember to eat in moderation from all food groups. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less

Wednesday’s thought… One of the main ingredients to weight loss success is persistence. Most people will take the easy way and quit. I’m sure, like me, you’ve done this in the past. Instead of focusing on the negative, look to the future with hope. Be strong because when we have strength we can achieve more than we can imagine. Never give up on yourself, because you’re worth it.

Continuing on the theme this week of warming up your menu, I want to talk about drinks. Water is always going to be the best drink but who wants a cold glass of water in winter? Here are some options:
• Hot water with a wedge of lemon
• Herbal teas such as peppermint or lemongrass count towards your daily 8 glasses
• Leave the water jug on the bench rather than in the fridge

Tuesday’s thought… Stop jumping on the scales every day, it can be disheartening and derail you. Instead, have an official weigh-in day once a month when you record your weight and measurements. Yes, you can weigh yourself once week if you wish but only record the monthly weigh-in. It took me 20 months to lose 35 kilos and I had a loss every month. It puts it into perspective; you can have good and bad weeks but when you do an overall review of the month you will see the tue story. Annette :-) ... See MoreSee Less
