Gotta do this

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

I have got to do this! My weight is dragging me down and I have to fix it! I know my kids are seeing a very bad example when they see their father and I. My middle daughter has become underweight by 27 pounds because she is afraid of becoming "fat", my youngest and my oldest are starting to put weight on when they shouldn't. I am tired of hurting all over my body because of the weight and being out of shape. In 9 months of quitting smoking my boyfriend has gained almost 70 pounds and has started drinking and eating more. I beg him to get up and work out with me but he refuses saying he hurts to much. Our lives are being destroyed by being overweight. I have started cooking healthier meals and having the kids help pick out new veggies and fruit to try. So that has helped. I have to find a way to get focused, stay motivated, and find how to enjoy becoming healthy.

    emoticon You made the first step by deciding to take action. SP offers seated workouts if pain is an issue for your husband. That could help for him to start off slow, if he's interested. Our children definitely watch what we do, and become who we are. emoticon
