In this video, Laurie Coots talks about her weight loss journey and how she managed her type 2 diabetes.
She learned that she needed to change the equation of how she was feeding, moving, and resting her body to achieve a healthier body and manage her disease. She developed strategies such as imagining her future healthy self, keeping track of everything with phone apps and a glucose meter, breaking down her journey into smaller battles, and finding ways to be in perpetual motion. She also learned about portion control and how to tweak her favorite foods to fit her plan, including having a daily scoop of premium ice cream.
She emphasizes the importance of imagining a healthy future self and starting to live that life now, becoming your own science experiment, and eating like your life depends on it because it does.
