You're in the right place if your doctor has told you that your Prediabetes or High Blood Sugar is a serious issue for your health and wellness. You may also be: overweight, lacking physical fitness, experiencing feelings of high stress, or come from a family with a history of diabetes.

After this prediabetes diagnosis, you wonder:

  • Do I have Prediabetes or not?

  • Are they sure?

  • What am I going to do now?

  • How will this change my life?

  • Am I ever going to enjoy my food again?

This "Now What?" stage of hearing you have prediabetes is frightening, yet Coach Georgianne wants to help you feel confident in your ability to make this better. Think about that for a moment: one year from today, your life and your health could be dramatically different. Dramatically better!

Instead of recommending another quick fix, 30-day miracle idea, fad diet plan, or shaming you for past efforts gone wrong, this course has been designed to build you up and help you create a Personalized and Sustainable Solution. And instead of trying to take the place of your medical team, Health Coach Georgianne will help you to work WITH your doctor to create robust health. Yet, not everyone has a medical team they can afford or trust...

So, when you do not have access to a diabetes doctor or a prediabetes course in your home town, the Solution Starter Prediabetes Program can come to your home through this Udemy course! If multiple people in your family are suffering from unstable blood sugar or other complications of the "Standard American Diet", this program will gently help you to start a family-inclusive plan. A solution starter that can make a difference for generations to follow.

Coach Georgianne has taught thousands of people:

  • When we THINK we can make a difference in our health...

  • We gain the courage to TAKE ACTION and do something about it...

  • Which fuels the momentum to PERSEVERE despite challenges...

  • And generates the POSITIVE RESULTS that improve our health.

Thank you for checking out all that's included in this Prediabetes Program. We look forward to being of service to you!

Hello Friends,

It is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to this journey to better health.

What you'll learn

  • Take the First Step toward Balanced Blood Sugar

  • Get the Facts about your Body and Prediabetes

  • Set Your Personal Goals

  • Adopt a New Mindset

  • Upgrade the Way You Eat

  • Decipher Your Food Labels

  • Stabilize Your Blood Sugar

  • Succeed with a Smart Strategy

  • Focus on Fitness

  • Manage Your Stress

  • Surround Yourself with Support

  • Face Challenges with Confidence

Four questions to ask yourself by writing your thoughts down in a journal or spiral notebook:

1. When did you first suspect or know that you are facing the challenge of Prediabetes?

2. Do you have direct relatives with any form of diabetes, and if you do, what are is their name(s)?

3. What kind of self-care habit change(s) have you made in the past, and what was that experience like for you?

4. If there were one thing about changing your lifestyle that concerns you, what would that one thing be?

Reflecting on the Past and setting the stage for the Present

When we take a little time to think about and write down our feelings, history, or ideas about our situation, it can help us to create fresh energy for new beginnings. My clients often tell me that they feel stuck in past circumstances when we begin our coaching work together. My hope for you is that you are open to the change process that is about to begin. When we gently acknowledge our past and honor our desire to embrace healthy solutions, we can create sustainable habits!

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit." ~Aristotle

Details about what you'll receive in the upcoming Cure the Now What Video

"One must not forget that recovery is brought about not by the physician, but by the sick man himself. He heals himself, by his own power, exactly as he walks by means of his own power, or eats, or thinks, breathes or sleeps." ~ Georg Groddeck, 1866-1934

The next video lecture is called "Cope with Triggers"

Before you watch it, I've created the PDF below to show you how food triggers impact many of the students in the Solution Starter Prediabetes Program. I encourage you to print it out and save it in your class materials.

~ Coach Georgianne

Details about what you'll receive in Cope with Triggers Video

This Coping with Triggers video has at its core a lesson about self-care.

Self-care means many things, but I know for sure that it is not self-caring to surround myself with trigger foods like a cinnamon roll dripping with frosting. I used to call this kind of food in my kitchen a treat, but now I know better. Instead of filling my home with things that do not serve my body, and thus testing my willpower every day, I plan my food life. I enjoy real food that is nourishing and I am in awe of how my body recreates itself daily.

Cope with Triggers

We talk a lot about triggers, temptations, and cravings in the Solution Starter.

What are triggers regarding food choices?
2 questions

Heart health is a major consideration for those with diabetes. You and your medical team will focus attention on this, especially if unstable blood sugar continues to be a problem.

I created the next video specifically for this Udemy course. It is meant to help you feel empowered to work with your doctor and to understand your Blood Circulation.

I encourage you to read this article and answer the questions, watch the next video, and print out all the resources provided.

~ Coach Georgianne

Details about what you'll receive in the Keep Your Heart Healthy video below...

Everyone with Prediabetes is at greater risk for problems with their arteries. Because you have invested time and money in this program, you have already taken positive action. During this course, you've been encouraged to be active, reach for and stay at a healthy weight, eat foods that are high in fiber, water, vitamins, minerals, and protein. You have also thought about stress in your life and sleep at the end of the day. You are already doing significant things to reduce your risk of heart and artery problems.

Keep Your Heart Healthy

The next video lecture is called "Take Charge of Your Thoughts."

Before you watch it, I've created the PDF below to introduce you to another student in this program. She found a way to create a "Plan B" when her exercise goals fell through. I encourage you to print it out and save it in your class materials.

~ Coach Georgianne

Details about what you'll receive in Take Charge of Your Thoughts below...

You decided to participate in this Prediabetes Program awhile ago. When you began, the thoughts you had about high blood sugar and lifestyle were likely very different than they are today.

In this stage of your wellness journey, it's ideal for you to make sure your daily thoughts help you to stay focused on your health goals.

Let's begin by reviewing the two main goals of your time in the Solution Starter Program.

Goal One: Lose 5-10% of your starting weight

Goal Two: Add 150 minutes of activity to your week

Goal Three: Reduce stress

Many people find high levels of enthusiasm for lifestyle change efforts in the early days of any new program, and that energy often helps them to take bold action in new ways. After a few months of effort, most of us need to be given some additional support as we persevere toward our ultimate success. Is that where you find yourself today?

Take Charge of Your Thoughts

This Quiz #6 will help you review some of the important topics in your Solution Starter Prediabetes Program Section 10.
