My Incredible Shrinking family

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Hello my little Spark family I know two blogs in one day what's wrong with but this one I had to write I'm so very proud of my son...He's so amazing to me...and I just want to shout it out from the roof tops...On Jan 21st this year I found out my beautiful boys were pre-diabetic and boy did that jolt my system into reality for them...I just thought they were to young to be given such a diagnosis well I wasn't going to stand by and let this just happen to them it was time I step up for them and do I changed they changed we changed and here's what we did......We drowned ourselves in water, we stopped eating out....we starting cooking at home everyday of the week....we starting eating fruits and veggies with every every every oh did I say every meal....we left the sweets and juices and sodas alone.....cut out a lot of pastas....we exercised like little fools...

My eldest started Hip Hops Abs and my youngest and I did a variety of things like basketball, football, soccer, and oh yeah walking with mom.....He's started Hip Hop Abs today....Woohoo.....well long story short my youngest didn't have much weight to loose not much at all but my oldest in 5 month lost 25 lbs he went from 176 to 151 BMI dropped 5.5 % and his blood work we go back tomorrow for his A1c or Ac1 whichever it is that tells us about his diabetes I just know it's going to be good news...I'm so not worried about it....well now I'm going to attempt to download two pics so you can see how he look then and now.....Here goes oh yeah He's 15 yrs old
