Borderline Diabetic

Hey Momz, so I have to tell you this story. So I took my 9 year old daughter to the doctor 👩‍⚕️ for her annual routine check and the doctor basically informed me that my daughter is borderline diabetic. The doctors basically told me that my baby girl was in the obese category for her age, height, and weight. Immediately I begin to panic because I had seen some of the struggles that my extended family members had experienced being diabetic. I always pray; as that is a daily occurrence for me, but I begin to research and do some spring cleaning and looked into healthier food choices for my household as a whole. Although I am not the one who prepares the meals (my husband does that), we both recognized that we had to make some changes for my daughter’s life. While looking into healthier food choices, purchasing healthier foods and snacks, and praying, I decided to get my daughter a Fitbit. Now I already have a Fitbit; So after the Fitbit came in the mail, I sat down with my daughter and explained to her that we are going to have this competition using the Fitbits to see who can get the most steps and workouts each day. She was so excited and happy to be physically active. Now for those of you that don’t know my daughter, she normally does not like anything active and she is aware that she is a little heavier than her classmates. My husband and I also spend more time affirming my baby self esteem. So back to the story, I’m really excited because she is excited 😊; we sat down together and set up her Fitbit and created her an account so that she can log her items and I can send her supportive badges through the Fitbit program. My daughter has since beat me in steps everyday for this whole week and has been actively using her Fitbit to workout 🏋️‍♀️. I’m so proud of her that at 9 years old she decided to take her health into her own hands with the push of her mommy’s support. I shared this story because as Momz, sometimes we have to be creative in how we support and encourage our children. I’m not perfect but through my faith and prayers God has given me creativity in how to be and support my daughter as a Mom. I want to encourage all Momz to think 🤔 creatively whenever you are trying to support your kiddos 👶 in a way that can affect their lives for the rest of their lives. Momz you are all Rockstarz 🌟🌟
