Making progress

Over the last 4 weeks, we've provided you with a lot of information to help you make a fresh start with your type 2 diabetes.


Now could be a good time to review your progress over the last few weeks.

At the start, we talked about the importance of setting goals and writing down your plans to help increase your chances of success. One of two things has probably happened:


  1. You've made some changes. Hopefully, you made celebrating success part of your plan! Go ahead and celebrate.
  2. You haven't yet got going with making any changes. It's important not to think too much about what hasn't happened. It helps to learn from mistakes and fail forward. Remember the lesson from the failure email? Fail forwards. Learn from what went wrong, pick yourself up and treat yourself like your best friend.


It might be helpful to go back and look at your change plan or goals. Or make them for the first time. Remind yourself about your reasons for wanting to make some changes. Our change plan helps you do this.


Remember, one small step at a time, done consistently, makes all the difference between making progress and standing still.

Over the last 4 weeks, we've covered goal setting, remission, weight loss, low carb, and intermittent fasting. We've also touched on dealing with failure and shame, and how to bounce back or escape from the prison they can create.


One of the key messages we shared was that by losing 10kg, you have a really high chance of achieving remission from type 2 diabetes. That means coming off diabetes medication and having a normal blood sugar. Visit Lose weight | Know Diabetes for more information and tips on how to lose weight and become more active.
