Exlporing the great outdoors!
Now that was fun!
A family that plays together, stays together!!
All my life I have struggled with my weight. I am the heaviest I have ever been and I am ready to do something about it! Weight has been an increasing problem in my household. My husband and I are both overweight and our boys are following. 3 1/2 years ago my husband underwent gastric surgery and has had tremendous success. I have done nothing, and it shows. My body is really starting to complain! I know I need to make lifestyle changes, not only for myself, but for my children as well. My biggest inspiration is my youngest sone who at age 12, is obese. We have been taking the medical steps needed, such as getting him on a CPAP, tonsils removed, thyroid condition controlled, as well as setting up an appointment for a nutritionist. Now I really need to focus on the things I can fix, and that begins with me! I am hoping that by sharing my story and being accountable for by actions, from the foods I prepare to the amount of activity my family gets, I can get my family healthy . Today I make that change!!
My current goal is to just get started! There are several bad habits I need to begin breaking and replacing with good ones. This week I am focusing on drinking less tea and replacing it with water. I am also trying to really keep track of ,and think about, what I eat, while adding some evening walks!
I currently live in Viera, FL. I grew up in OK and will always consider myself a true Okie! I have a wonderful husband and two fantastic boys. I am a teacher, specializing in Deaf education. However, I have been teaching as a 1st grade mainstream teacher and I love it!
I enjoy doing just about anything as long as it's with my family! We especially enjoy going to the beach and fishing. For my "me" time I enjoy being surrounded by nature. From the beach to the wetlands, or just out around my house, I love trying to catch glimpses of wildlife and maybe get a snapshot or two!
