This past weekend saw my beloved Nichole graduate from College. Not only did she graduate, she did it with honors....Magna Cum Laude. So very proud of her. She has had a rough go of it, she left college when she was 21 to get married and have a baby, she knew it would be difficult to go back. Her husband would not support her doing so, every time she mentioned it he shot her down. He was about keeping her down I do believe. In 2010 after the divorce, she was living with her father and I, and the two boys. We told her it was perfectly Ok for her to go back to school. So she did, full time. It certainly paid off. So proud of her.
I also am very proud of her because she has been overweight for all of her adult life, and morbidly obese the last 6 years of it. I am very proud of her taking the commitment to SparkPeople and working out with me consistently and she has lost 60+ pounds since last August. She is looking amazing!
I can certainly tell everyone here, it is possible to change. It is possible to dig down deep inside, and make things happen. It is when we constantly tell ourselves WE CAN'T that we certainly WON't.
A single mom proved it can be done, with two young boys, and full time school, she incorporated exercise and eating right and is reshaping her body and her life!
Don't waste another moment, join a team, start logging your food, get energized with clean wholesome nutrition, you will find that the depression, and lack of motivation completely disappears once you do!
