This. It says it all in one line.
for the original post…you can’t make someone with excuses change. We could not get that thru my mother in laws head who is now dealing at age 81 with tons of Type 2 issues rotting her body right now. Kidney issues, circulatory, and more. Sad. She was told thru good Drs to eat correctly, good info from me on low carb and eating and we pushed all we could but the excuse in the end was she wanted to eat like she was, take no responsibility for her eating lifestyle and just ‘take the shot’ and live like that. Now she is paying the big consequences.
See 60 ain’t old I am 61 and have the best health thru my changes when I started 7 yrs ago into my lc and zc journey. Key being, you either wanna do this or not. Age is her excuse of course but key being, they, ‘the oldies’ which I don’t even consider my self ‘an oldie’ truly LOL is that they actually DO have like a possible long time to live a good quality life, if they would just do it but hey, each person will step up and change or accept and do the ‘medical dance’ til the end so…my MIL is in the ill health/medical crap dance now and has been for like 10 yrs…see, I won’t allow that to go down, I got that personality that said ‘fix yourself NOW’ for a better future as I saw my MIL just starting to rot away from the sugar issues. It triggered me to say nope…ain’t doing it, will learn how to improve health older I get, not accept it as some medical nightmare to go down for things I can change. Sometimes it is just our personalities and who we are is what clicks and allows many to heal and into better health and others to just allow ill health to wash over them and drag out a lower quality of life as our health declines more each day. But just do what ya can showing info on why sugar rots the body and more and hope something clicks for the person. Wishing a good lifestyle forward for all!
