You Have Such A Pretty Face
How many of us have heard that? I know I sure did as a young adult, by a well meaning mom.
58 + years later I still probably have that pretty face – just a bigger body ! J
I live in a household consisting of 5 adults, 2 children (son’s 6 year old daughter and 2 year old daughter); my husband (who is overweight), my 23 yr. old son (who is overweight), his wife (also overweight), my grandson, and myself (who is very obese).
I have type 2 diabetes, a heart attack April 09 and then open heart surgery April 10 – my husband had a heart attach 6 years ago and still smokes like a chimney (and loves his pizza and snacks). My son is 6’2” (or there abouts) and probably weighs about 315 lbs. I don’t want him to go through the issues I’m going through or have heart complications which is what my parents had.
I need to show them that wife, mom and Nana can overcome her weight problem and have it become second nature to eat correctly and exercise – just like breathing but I need outside help to “lead me by the hand”.
