Back on track - Whole 30

Single mom wants to lose weight and set a good example of proper diet and nutrition for her three overweight and inactive teenage boys. (My fourth son grew tall, 6'4 and is now thin.)

So much in my life has changed since I first wrote my profile in June 2007. It has been such a slow process but gradually the scale and my lifestyle have gone in the right direction. Today it's December 10, 2009. Im ten pounds away from my goal weight, a goal I KNOW I will accomplish, but Im ...
Single mom wants to lose weight and set a good example of proper diet and nutrition for her three overweight and inactive teenage boys. (My fourth son grew tall, 6'4 and is now thin.)

So much in my life has changed since I first wrote my profile in June 2007. It has been such a slow process but gradually the scale and my lifestyle have gone in the right direction. Today it's December 10, 2009. Im ten pounds away from my goal weight, a goal I KNOW I will accomplish, but Im in no hurry. I like the active lifestyle I lead and that wont change when I reach my goal. I guess I learned the real goal isnt a number on scale, but living a healthy, active lifestyle. Ive run a 5K race, climb a mountain regularly, walk miles and miles at the beach. I try ot enjoy every day. Of course there is never enough time. My biggest goal now is to not waste a minute of life. I hope I can inspire my kids and others around me to become more active.
UPDATE: April 17, 2012. Ive gained 40 something pounds back since my "180" pound picture...uggg! But I have a renewed determination, as I celebrate my 50th BDay on 10/25/12. I want to lookk like that strong healthy woman again, whatever that weight is. I have started to eat cleanly as much as possible and incorporated more exercise. My ultimate goal is to play rugby on a Womans team in the Fall with a bunch of 20 somethngs...I will get there!!!!!

I know about kids and their own weightloss.
I have 3 kids. My oldest son, 19, lost 40 lbs just by making healthier choices.
My 15 daughter lost about 35 lbs and exercises more than me!
My 17 year old son is picking up on the habits and using the stationary bike we just bought!
YOU CAN DO IT!

Hey beautiful!

I just want to say that I know where your coming from. Young or well aged ( :D ) it can be hard physically to start anything new. I get my mom with me to do walks, but I can see sometimes it's harder for her. I want to say that you dont need to push yourself as others might be, the "Day" challenge would be a good START and then of course as you get to it, you could always increase later and challenge yourself there. Just dont leave us in the dust! Lol :)
