Healthy For Life

I'm a 39 year old stay at home mom. Until I had kids, I was always pretty slender, though I wouldn't necessarily say fit. I've been unhappy with the way I look for a long time.

Then my father died from a massive heart attack, 3 weeks ago. Up until then I hadn't cared about what kind of food I was putting into my body, and got little to no daily exercise. The week following his death I lost 7 lbs, and decided once and for all I was going to lose this extra weight I've been ...
I'm a 39 year old stay at home mom. Until I had kids, I was always pretty slender, though I wouldn't necessarily say fit. I've been unhappy with the way I look for a long time.

Then my father died from a massive heart attack, 3 weeks ago. Up until then I hadn't cared about what kind of food I was putting into my body, and got little to no daily exercise. The week following his death I lost 7 lbs, and decided once and for all I was going to lose this extra weight I've been carrying around since my daughter was born, 6 years ago. Since then I've lost an additional 4 lbs, through watching portion sizes.

I want to not only lose weight, but lower my risk for type 2 diabetes (had gestational diabetes when pregnant with my daughter, but not my son), and my risk for heart disease. I also want to set a better example for my kids.
