Oprah & Dr. Oz Lay the Smack Down on Diabetes!

Did you see Oprah today?

It was all about how Diabetes is the "Silent Killer"....wow....lots of great information.

It was also a fabulous reminder on why I got banded to begin with. Diabetes runs in my family....as it seems with most people.

I don't understand how some people can just assume, "oh well, I'm going to get diabetes since everyone in family has it, might as well eat what I want, not exercise, and not care about it."

People can avoid a diabetes diagnosis - they just can't assume they are cursed with "bad genes".

One of my favorite sayings on diabetes is "Genetics loads the gun, but behavior pulls the trigger."

My gun may be loaded, but I'm not pulling that trigger.

PS: Weigh-in Day Tomorrow! I am so close to ONEDERLAND.....


  1. I really like this saying it is really true, fingers crossed for the weigh in tomorrow :)
    have a nice week end.
