There are two significant challenges to implementing sustainable change in your lifestyle. The first is getting started. If you have listened to a friend describe their “plan” to exercise, eat healthily, or improve their health status, you have probably thought how easy it sounds. How often has it happened? While some follow through, unfortunately, many do not. That is because it is easier to have the vision than it is to execute the plan. Change is never simple, but it does make a difference especially for anyone who has Type 2 diabetes or heart disease. The second challenge is maintaining the effort required to see the change through.
