Well now doesn't seem like I've been on my life style change this long. I started June 10, 2012 and it's already November 10,02012. My weight has declined 40 lbs. and my health has improved. On my way to getting off of high cholesterol meds. and staying off of them. My irregular heart beat has not shown it's ugly little face for awhile now and heart burn is a thing of the past.
Sometimes when I look back and think of my old state of mind the one that said "You can't do this. It's just a waste of time and no one but you cares any way" I just laugh inside. I have changed so much for the better. I'm happier which means my family is happier. I'm healthier which means my family is healthier. I'm more positive which means my family is more positive. We all have changed and guess what I'm not the only that cares. They care too and love and support me through this journey.
I have inspired my husband and oldest son to change the way they live and my youngest (he doesn't have weight problem) sees the hard work and strives for greatness in all aspects of his life because if MOM can loose weight he can get all A's on his report card.
Food is no longer a reward for things but an outdoor activity for the whole family is. Camping, hiking, paint ball guns, 4-wheeling. Just getting together for a game of volleyball or flag football to have fun and bring us closer together.
Life change is they way we look at it and we love it and we cherish it.
