You’re part of the club
As you work on eating healthier, surrounding yourself with the right kind of support will be important. Start with your people. Share your nutrition challenges—talk about it as openly as you feel comfortable. Not only will this help you clear your head, but by hearing from others, you can sharpen your resolve to stay on target with your diet.
Next, reach out to your community. Not only are we here to help, but there are often local resources that you can use. Aren’t sure where to find those? Ask your doctor or dietitian.
Most of all, don’t let how you manage your diabetes isolate you. Share your questions, emotions, and feelings with your club. Chances are someone nearby is dealing with something similar.
