Now that I have been on this lifestyle journey of change it seems that my whole family has decided to join in.
My husband is now walking early in the mornings and is excited to see that his pants no longer fit. He brags to me with glee that his belt is past its last notch, he had to make another one. That if he did not have a belt his pants would just fall off.
My 17 year old son, has stopped complaining that there is nothing to eat. He now knows that he should just grab a piece of fruit and eat it. We have not had any "high sugar" snacks in this house for months. He only stopped complaining yesterday. When he sat down and stated " I am finishing this melon", as if to dare me to say no.
A few days ago I walked into my family room and noticed that my 7 year old was sitting on the floor with the dumbbell set opened at his feet, he was using the bar that you place the weights on as his weight. He said I want to be fit too. I told him that it was great. Last night I saw him doing sit ups in his bed.
He is the only lean one out of us but I am not telling him to stop, he just wants to be included.
I am so happy to see that my family has joined in on my odyssey, and that we will accomplish this as a family, a healthy family.
