I had to do this journey because my husband died from type 1 diabetes.. I was left with a huge farm and 2 ADHD kids..
I had to get my act together because my kids were having night mares.. Kids are individuals they learn from watching us..
Fat mom also fat kid.. i253.photobucket.com/albums/hh54/Rena1965/
But when I learned to do this journey for my health not dates- things got better
these days my kids are also more health aware! i253.photobucket.com/albums/hh54/Rena1965/
My big boy went from 100kgs and is down to around 85kgs now..
My youngest son no longer is ashamed of having me hang around him.. i253.photobucket.com/albums/hh54/Rena1965/
My youngest will train with me and enjoys accompanying me to the gym..
Take it more easy, remove junkfood from your home.
Cook from the base up
and remove butter for soft tub margerine
Replace sugar with a non alcohol content sweetner
The changes have to be permenant- also visiting a diabetes clinic with my husband and a heart intensive care also put me right about what I was doing to myself..
The doctors took me aside and told me how important especially with my husband I needed to get with cooking super lean.. This was not a problem since I had been cooking for my dad..
Do this journey, because at some stage our luck gets used up and our health begins to crack.. The weak point in my life was injuries to my back.. Now I got the weight off I could drop my 1200 painkiller habit daily.. I call it a habit because strength training even with a horrible spinal injury as made me feel alot better.. I am also watching researches looking into a hormone called ATP.. This wonderful item is something the body produces and can make our joints feel better.. I am a 100% follower of what scientists find out..
Don't wait until your health cracks.. Don't panic about your wedding, do this journey because you wanna be with your darling many many years.. I lost my husband 7 years ago and it takes forever to see them again.. Death is the worst thing that can happen to a couple in love.. Believe me!
