Please grant me the patience...
The patience to trust my intuition.
The patience to trust my sauce from the source.
The patience to trust the process.
The patience to not respond to liars & leeches.
The patience to reinstate & reaffirm my boundaries.
The patience to allow my body, mind & soul to heal in alignment.
Repost from @heythrivegirl - “For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.”
Before you were even a thought in the minds of your parents, God knew you. He took His pencil and drew out an intricate blueprint for your life, separate from all other blueprints. He took time with your plan and made sure that it would stand the test of time. He included every failure, mistake, and disappointment. And guess what? God, in His infinite wisdom and grace, did not put that pencil down until the plan was completed. So yes, you might’ve failed Him at age 8, 16, or even last night but it’s no excuse to call it quits. Get up, repent, and keep going because YOUR plan is still in full effect. He who started a good work doesn’t forfeit, but He sees to it that the work is completed. Happy Wednesday 🙏🏾✨

How Dangerous is Diabetes?
According to the 2017 National Diabetes Statistics Report, over 30 million people living in the United States have diabetes. That’s almost 10 percent of the U.S. population. And diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, causing, at least in part, over 250,000 deaths in 2015. That’s why it’s so important to take steps to reverse diabetes and the diabetes epidemic in America.
Type 2 diabetes is a dangerous disease that can lead to many other health conditions when it’s not managed properly, including kidney disease, blindness, leg and food amputations, nerve damage, and even death.
Diabetes has grown to “epidemic” proportions, and the latest statistics revealed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state that 30.3 million Americans have diabetes, including the 7.2 million people who weren’t even aware of it. Diabetes is affecting people of all ages, including 132,000 children and adolescents younger than 18 years old.
The prevalence of prediabetes is also on the rise, as it’s estimated that almost 34 million U.S. adults were prediabetic in 2015. People with prediabetes have blood glucose levels that are above normal but below the defined threshold of diabetes. Without proper intervention, people with prediabetes are very likely to become type 2 diabetics within a decade.

DIABETIC DIET GUIDELINES
1. Lose weight. - Losing weight improves insulin’s activity, which reduces blood-glucose levels. Research suggests that people at high risk for diabetes who lose as little as 5 percent of their body weight (i.e., about 10 pounds, if they weigh 200 pounds) can prevent or delay onset of the condition.
2. Exercise regularly.
Studies show that physical activity improves the body’s response to insulin and helps lower blood-glucose levels. Aim to fit in 30 minutes of moderate activity—such as brisk walking—nearly every day.
3. Choose whole grains. - Selecting whole grains, such as whole-wheat breads and pastas, barley, corn and oats, over refined ones can help improve insulin sensitivity. Whole grains will help you meet your recommended daily intake for fiber (25 grams); they also provide more vitamins, minerals and other health-promoting nutrients than refined grains.
4. Don’t skip meals. - Research suggests that eating breakfast increases insulin effectiveness in lowering blood-glucose levels, and eating regularly spaced meals also has a beneficial effect on insulin response.
5. Use good fats. - Season dishes with moderate amounts of olive oil and the other “good fats” that make food tastier and more satisfying. Limit saturated fats to less than 7 percent and trans fats to less than 1 percent of total calories; restrict cholesterol intake to less than 200 mg/day.
6. Choose foods low on the glycemic index. - The glycemic index (GI) is a system of ranking foods that contain equal amounts of carbohydrates according to how much they raise blood-glucose levels. (The lower the GI number, the less the food boosts your blood sugar and the more diabetic-diet-friendly it is.) - For example, vegetables, whole grains, beans and high-fiber foods tend to fall lower on the glycemic scale, while processed and refined foods and sweets are higher up.
