A Positive Side-Effect

Sunday, May 23, 2010

Since I joined SP in August of 2009. I have made many changes. One of the biggest was to change how we eat. I have used several SP Recipes and my husband loves them as much as I do. I have also become more active. Because it was so gradual, I didn't notice that my husband was also changing. Yesterday he announced that he has lost 16# and has started a fitness program of his own where he walks on the treadmill and uses the stationary bike daily. He also purchased a rowing machine at a garage sale and even though it is extremely challenging, he loves it!!! What a wonderful side-effect to my program........

  Yes, I'm a firm believer that we are the main catalysts in the lives of our families; how we feel and what we do - almost always spills over into the lives of those nearest to us. I guess it's because we are the main caregivers in most families... And, yes, what a wonderful side effect it is. Thanks for the comment to my blog too!
