I've inspired my Mom....

Sunday, July 22, 2012

In January - my Mom started asking me about nutrition and what she should be eating. She took my advice (based mostly on what I've read at SP) and today I talked to her on the phone. She shared with me that she bought a new pair of jeans this weekend. In January she was a size 16 and now she's a 12. I am so encouraged by this. I'm so grateful for inspiring her and so glad that she's finally taken her health into her hands.

But on another note - why cannot I inspire myself lately? My SP friend, Trentdreamer, gave me some great advice that I'm taking to heart. I am going to figure this out. It's just a matter of time.

    That's so awesome! I originally inspired my mom, cousin and friend and they all lost weight too. Super motivating and feels great so congrats on Inspiring her. I did feel like a hypocrite too because then ppl were doing and eating better than me. Its not a competition tho, it's everyone's own journey and I'm glad your mom is taking care of herself!

    Good for you! My mom needs to get her health under control but I'm nervous to bring it up with her. She knows it and doesn't like being reminded but it's hard for her to get serious...
