"Do you have children in your life (yours, a friend's, or relative's) that could look up to you? Imagine them making healthy choices that they've learned from you. How does it feel to know that a child you care about is on the right track to a healthy life because of your example?"
It feels a lot better than worrying about their being on the path to unhappiness, unhealthiness and disease because of my setting a bad example! It would be a relief, and also satisfying to know that JT and any future siblings wouldn't have to struggle with their weight like their grandmothers, grandfather or parents. If I can give him good habits now, he'll have them for life. I need to push myself a little harder to find easy things to feed Josh that are healthy for him, methinks.
