Welcome back to SP my baby girl!

Sunday, June 19, 2011

1 long year ago my daughter and I were doing SP together and we were awesome at it! She lost an amazing 13 pounds in 2 months. She inspired me so much. Together, we felt that this was not impossible. Then my husband and I moved to Florida and I basically gave up. I feel like I abandoned her!

She and I have struggled with our weights just about our entire life. SP was one good thing we shared together that really worked. Being a diabetic, I worry about passing that along to her. I don't want her to have to go through this disease and the damage that it does to your body. I lost my grandmother to diabetes almost 10 years ago. She suffered so much. The second leg amputation did her in and she never recovered. I don't want that for myself and I certainly don't want it for my daughter.

When she called me today and said she was coming back to SP I was overjoyed! We can do this together whether we live in the same house or separated by hundreds of miles! I want her to be happy and healthy. She is a beautiful young woman with an equally beautiful soul.

Thank you to the powers that be for letting us try this again together!

    HI - So glad you have decided to come back to SP. Both you and your daughter have so much to benefit from joining in this challenge together. Stay focused, keep a healthy bit of competition (always works for me) and have fun, as this is not temporary but a life change. Welcome back!
